“Window at Le Vieux Couvent, France”
Carte Postale #2
I am having so much fun doing the post cards–today’s trip into a nearby town yielded an art supply store with a few new cubes of watercolor to add to my travel box:))
My intentions are to mail out a week’s worth of postcards, with a drawing each day from comments that day. If I have time to squeeze in a few more then I will do so…but no promises–I have a lot to eat er I mean do before I leave:))
Today I found some beautiful lavender envelopes to tuck the postcards inside for mailing. I am announcing the winners each day here on my blog—so if you see your name, email me ASAP with your snail mail address so I can get your postcard out to you!
The winner for Carte Postale #2 is……
Bruce Bingham! Big smiles for you Bruce:)!! And thanks to each of you for hanging out with me in France:)) I have another postcard to love ready to post on the morrow:)))) Just leave a comment, send an email, have your people call Eddie’s people, etc to get your name in the beret:))))!
Sometimes the smallest thing becomes the biggest priority.
Today I noticed my petite bedside bouquet was faded and decided that the most important thing to do at the moment was to go in search of new flowers. The “big” pink flowers are JASMINE! The other flowers are smaller than my pinkie nail… funny how the smallest things can often times give the greatest pleasure:)!
Today was market day.
What’s not to love about an open air market…in France! (I saw you over there, hiding and snorkeling down all those fresh olives stuffed with garlic;))
Look how cute— all the herbs lined up in their own little baskets with hand written signs:))
Just when you think your heart is going to burst from so much sunshine, flowers and good stuff–you look up and see roses going to the heavens!
These hand made roses were suspended in a courtyard outside just outside the art store (the same one where I purchased the lavender envelopes:)))
Aren’t they beautiful!!!!
Just so you don’t get too confused….here are the REAL ROSES:)))
And it wouldn’t be me if I hadn’t tried out one new food today. Check out the fruit flavored macaroons (meringue cookies) Just enough for me ‘n’ you:))
I won’t tell if you won’t.
What happens in France stays in France.
If you are having some fun on the trip–you can bring along a friend….I am not saying I will share the macaroons with them, but they can get their name in the drawing for the postcard and look at the pictures;))
Just forward this post along to your very best friend today:))
Big Hugs from France!!
