And the winner is…..
It has added an extra layer of glow to know that I can spread the joy that is France by mailing a few of my original watercolor postcards (carte postale in French)!!
I will be selecting a winner each day while I am here in France:))) If you’d like to have your name in the beret. so to speak—just let me know by way of leaving a comment on my blog, sending an email to Eddie or me, or dropping by the Le Vieux Couvent on your way to Toulouse;))— carrier pigeon will work also:)) A new name will be drawn each day from that day’s comments/replies:))
The winner of the Carte Postale #1
is Betsy Duncan—Yeah Betsy!!!
(Betsy, email me your snail mail address ASAP so I can get your original watercolor postcard in the mail.)
Now it’s time to let your mind carry you away to France….
The carte postale scene was painted in the cafe shown below (it’s the one with the red awning) . Something tells me that stairmasters and treadmills are not big sellers in Rocamadour. Just sayin’:))
And just in case you thought I forgot about food for one day…..I am proud to report that I now know what purple tastes like.
A perfectly purple parfait:)))
And I figured after hoofing it up to Rocamadour that I should reward myself with ….. ahem…..CREME CARAMEL.
P.S. I am thinking that perhaps I should save the last day in France for clothes shopping. Just in case. You know….like if the washing machines here were to cause my clothes to unexpectedly shrink two sizes or something and I couldn’t fit into anything to wear back home on the plane. Just thinkin’ ahead.
P.S.S. If you want to invite a friend along on our French excursion, just forward this email.
