La chair de sa chair

When my longing for Paris gets overwhelming, I can seek solace in my own kitchen these days thanks to my new authentic French bistro chairs from American Country Home chairStore. I opted for the Brasserie Side Chair in blue. They arrived very quickly. The packaging was so good that the chairs suffered no damage from the rough handling the boxes had received in transit. The chairs are made by the Poitoux company in France and they’re as comfortable as they are pretty. They’re study enough for outdoor use and come in several color combinations. To complete the look, add a bistro table and a white-aproned waiter with a steaming bowl of soupe gratinée à l’oignon.

Today’s expression, la chair de sa chair (lah share duh sah share) has nothing to do with bistro chairs. It means “the flesh of his flesh” or “his son.” We’d say “his flesh and blood.”  My flesh and blood approved of the new bistro chairs. Like mother, like daughter it seems.

    Hi Patricia, I came across your blog when I was looking at the reviews of the bistro chairs. One of the reviewers felt the blue in the chairs you purchased was more of a purple. Just wondering if you’d agree? I’m really looking for a blue chair. Thanks and love your blog! I lived in France briefly and it’s so much fun to read about other Francophiles and their interests!
