Framed receipt

My friends Susan Cernek and Rob Giampietro framed this receipt from their first trip to Paris together in 2006. They'd had two coffees at the Cafe de Flore, and now the receipt hangs in their kitchen, as a lovely reminder. How cute is that?

What a darling memento!

Helen said...

Eeep, eeep, eeep! TOO cute. A beautiful idea.

The Socialite said...

That's adorable! Ohhh Paris. :)

erin said...

too cute (want to copy!)

- Renée - said...

Wow! That's a cute idea!

Cheryl said...

The last time I was in a photobooth was on our honeymoon, ironically in Paris, in 2000. And don't you know I can't find the photos any more. So sad but a wonderful memory and time. Have a great time in Paris. It is the most perfect city.

Jane Flanagan said...

Brilliant idea!

I dream of returning to Cafe Flore!

I wish I'd thought to do that with our receipt. So cute!

The New Black said...

What a great way remember!

Dionne said...

What a lovely idea!

You know what would look gorgeous? If they had some sort of french-style fabric as the matting.

allison said...

expensive coffee.... haha but cute none-the-less

Cafe Fashionista said...

This is the most adorable thing ever. And they are the cutest couple!

Ashley said...

That's a genius idea! I look forward to doing it :)

Joanna said...

Aww, this post made me smile. They both look absolutey besotted with one another.

Your post on parents' secret favorite children, however, made me so sad. I feel terrible for the two younger daughters who are being forced to live in the shadow of their oldest sister. It was so sweet of you to encourage the youngest one, though. I sure hope the parents come to their senses and start being a little more self-aware.

Reminds me of a surprise I had once when I first visited a new friend's home - coincidentally, and unknown to me at the time, they had inherited a mutual friend's art collection, and among the items on the wall was a framed set of doodled score keeping tallies. they were from card games that I had attended years earlier, the now absent hosts always insisted that I keep score. True bittersweet.

that's a fabulous and sentimental idea! Love it!

vic said...

That is quite possibly the sweetest thing I have ever seen!

Carmen said...

♥♥♥ I think my heart just melted a little!

inkOBSESSIONdesigns said...

Adorable idea!

Muppet Soul said...

THAT is an adorable idea...

Now we just have to go someplace interesting.

Blair said...

Oh, they are such a cute couple! And that idea is brilliant.

Leigh said...

So wonderful, I think I will take inspiration from my trips and make art out of it. :)

franki durbin said...

I think that's a great idea. We saved a few stubs from our first trip to Italy. Nothing like a receipt from a cafe in Capri to make you smile. That, and a receipt from a lift in Santorini are quite memorable.

Listen, Joanna, you really have to stop all this travel speak. I didn't realize just how much I wanted (needed) a vacation until now. Ahhh.... time to go drool over some photos.

Keep up the fun posts. I'm already on vacation in my mind :)

i have a stash of tickets for places i've been with my husband (movies, concerts, museums). i went through it and also found a receipt from john's pizzeria in new york: our first trip together. now, to do something special ...

Mary-Laure said...

Isn't that place really overpriced though? I mean, that's over $14 for 2 coffees...

Rebecca said...

Wow! I am totally doing that someday.. :)

Sweet Nothings said...

so cute..i was thinking of doing the same tihng but with a movie we saw.. and then we took those photobooth pics as well

Jenna said...

It is expensive, but there are a few reasons why. They got more than just coffee- they had cafe creme (i'm guessing by the receipt), which is coffee with heavy cream. An espresso can be as little as a few euros. You are also buying the time you spend in the cafe- which can be up to a few hours.


Chessa! said...

I LOVE this idea! I save everything so I'm sure that I have a few receipts from trips lying around in a box somewhere!

Nicole Marie said...

oh my gosh my friend has that too! they have the receipt from their first dinner together and next to it is a framed picture of the bench in paris where he proposed!

{lovely little things} said...

cute idea, perfect for a couples scrapbook

SK said...

that's really cute :)

Same New Story said...

such a cute idea!

One Love Photo said...

I really like that. Helps me think of the sweet reminders receipts can be. I am just recovering from going through way tooooo many receipts this week. (tax day). maybe I should hang a few. I like the hand written ones the best myself.

Andi said...

Joanna, you may or may not know, but a lot of photographers now-a-days offer a photo booth to have at the reception, its just a fun quarky thing for the guests to play with and then have some snapshots like these to take home with them;)

STORY said...

How fabulous!

one little journey said...

sweeeeeeeeet idea :-)

Kristin said...

That is a lovely idea. I am so going to copy that.

(now I just need to take a trip!)

l'embrouillamini said...

That's such a lovely idea :)

I notice that their waiter was Dominique - he is lovely! He let me eat my Ladurée macarons with my 'chocolat special flore' :)

I hope you have a wonderful time in Paris - I can't wait to see the photos

The Lil Bee said...

I love that! So so sweet.

11 Euros for two café creme- wow! Framing that receipt is a good idea, if only to document that insane price!

The Wanderers' Daughter said...

We do that too.
It's a little dorky and highschool-ish, but...who really cares, when you're in love?

Gillian said...

Great idea :)

JHAYNE said...

i keep receipts from special days and trips. the best memories are often made with good food ;)

pasadena said...

The idea i so romantic, but two cremes = 11 euros??? It's absolutely too much. ;-)
