Bulldogs and Roses — French, of course!!

Carte Postale France #1

Carte Postale France #1 My First Giveaway from France ❤️

Note:  This is my first post from France and I figure we may as well get this party started off with a bang!  
This post includes pics to journal from and a giveaway 🙂 !!

It’s France and as you might suspect

….there are roses.


(This is a cute fixer upper that I thought you and I might be interested in purchasing—I THINK it just might fit our budget 😉

Do French bulldogs speak French?


Only the dogs know for sure and they’re not talkin’ 😉


It’s already settling in to a quiet peaceful summer in France.
A walk down the road might just uncover something to put in your watercolor journal today…

Yep—I think I found us a good spot to sit and watercolor.  Did you bring the wine???


Happy First Day in France—Bonjour and Bonhowdy and all that good stuff ❤️!!

(Please note:  The photos I share here, of our time in France, are to be used as reference for  doing watercolors for  journals or postcards only.  I please ask that they are used soley for that purpose:-)

Enter below to get your name in the hat for a chance to win a  petite original watercolor/postcard that will be mailed from France!

If you have a friend who needs some JOY in their life, share this post and encourage them to have some fun playing in the water (colors) and traveling along to France—everybody needs a holiday in France once in awhile 🙂 !

    Thanks for the beauty sent from France. I am considering participating in 2016. Why, do you ask 2016? Next year in June I will be in England, Paris and Ireland so it must wait, plus I really need to paint, paint, paint until then. Love to you and all who are participating!ReplyCancel

    Hi Dreama!
    Actually, this an English bulldog. My husband family used have them as pets. You know the English like to vacation in France…so he might be doing the same…or looking to buy that fixer upper for a summer place there. : )ReplyCancel

  • Katie McElwain - June 21, 2014 - 2:52 am

    I looove this….But then I love everything you post! I went to the Dordogne last summer after years and years of dreaming and few years of unhappy marriage…It did so much for my happiness and outlook. A year later that marriage is ending in divorce which is SO difficult. But so often I turn inwards for comfort by remembering those peaceful precious moments of my first adventure on my own! How wonderful that YOUR experiences in France can pass on so much joy to others 🙂 thank you!ReplyCancel
