“Postcards from France”

Saved you a chair today so you could take it all in 🙂

Even the rust is beautiful in France:))
And evening meals become a work of art:))
So many things to be inspired by….yesterday I did a watercolor sketch that I liked pretty well.
Cocoa, however, said he found it to be a real snoozer.
Cocoa seems to find a lot of things to snooze about, so I have decided to disregard his opinion.
This afternoon I did a watercolor of a house I thought you and I might rent for a bit.
It was called the chateau de la something or ‘nother and it seemed to have enough room for us to spread out in;)))
I have no idea how this photo of some French guy making a crepe filled with nutella and bananas turned up in my photos.
No idea at all……

I want to send some watercolor postcards from France to my friends:))  I wish I could do one for each of you, but then I would have no time to eat things like the…er….well, I probably should own up to the crepe thing, but we’ll save that story for another day.

Just leave a comment or email, send a carrier pigeon or contact Eddie to get your name in the proverbial hat.  I will post the winners here on my blog:))  It’s my way of bringing a bit of France to you:))))
Besides, I’ve already eaten all of the chocolate walnuts I intended to share with you.
You know I can’t be trusted with chocolate….:)

    I am traveling through your watercolors. What a beautiful way to start my day. I am hoping my name comes out of the hat. I sent a secret message to Eddy for his help. It is hard to bribe a cat, but I tried! Enjoy every minute. As for Cocoa she knows nothing about fine art.

    You have made my morning and started my day with a smile. But that’s the case whenever I open my mail and see a post from you. I loved seeing your watercolor sketches, they are wonderful inspiration for me today in my watercolor class! Was wondering if Eddy had anything to say about mademoiselle Coco?

  13. NeeNee

    Eddie, please tell your momma to send a postcard to me. I especially love the photo of the flowers and door with the rusty hinge (hint, hint!). Dreama, love the photos and your descriptions of how beautiful everything is.

  14. Thank you for sharing. I would go to France or Italy with you anytime. Let’s start planning that painting trip! Hugs. Enjoy.

    Another day in paradise…or something very, very close to being paradise. I’m delighted you’re having such a great time, and truly enjoying all that France and French culture, the French countryside and of course, French cuisine (chocolate, coffee, croissants, baguettes, more chocolates, more croissants, more baguetees et fromage…oh, yes…and the banana and nutella crepes, as well…mmmmmmm…nutella creptes) that is so magnifique!

    Tell little Cocoa he has no discerning taste at all – the watercolour you did is lovely, regardless of his opinion (he is adorable, though) – both of the paintings are, as all of the ones to come will be, as well. All those colours, all that sunshine, all that joy that is France.

    Enjoy the rest of your idyllic dream holiday, Dreama. And have another crepe for me – with lots of Nutella and bananas…oh! and some gorgeous coffee and dark, rich, luscious chocolates to go with that. Mmmmmm…..chocolates….
