A Sweet Home

Every year, during the holiday season, the Fairmont San Jose showcases a display.  One year, it was a river of chocolate (still my favorite).  This year, a house built by Bijan Bakery.

The sugary smell assaults the senses as you approach this house of confection.  I think the rooftop shingles are meringues. 

 Down the corridor, I found this painting upon a wall.  "I'll build a stairway to paradise with a new step every day." [George Gershwin, An American in Paris].  Reminded me of the time The Boyfriend and I vacationed in Montmartre, Dec 2007.
