Returning to France


I have returned to France after being gone a few months due to surgery .
I am doing great and my new knee works perfectly. Thanks to all of you for your
 warm get well wishes, they worked.

The first place I went was to the Dordogne.  This is the view out the front door.The flowers are all in bloom and the gentle rain has turned everything green.  It is lovely.
Then I spent awhile in Paris where my friend and I had tea at the Ritz. 
 How about this pastry?




From there I went to St. Remy de Provence which was fabulous.
All but the weather, I expected it to be warm but it was quite chilly. 
 
My first day I went to Villeneuve-Les-Avignon Flea Market which was a real 
adventure.  It was huge and I walked for what seemed like forever. 
I was successful in finding so many things for my web sites.

Here are just a couple of new things that you will see:

These six beautiful lavender transferware dessert plates.



Beautiful hand crocheted French antique table runner

uploaded as I possibly can.

Paris, I miss you......

It has been a very busy time for me and I have not been back to France for a few months. Not the least of which was a new great grandson born just before Christmas.

As soon as I have my knee surgery next week, I will hope for a quick recovery so I can go back soon.

In the meantime, these lovely pictures keep Paris on my mind.

Wishing you all get to go this year too. The magic awaits.  

For a lovely authentic French lunch at a reasonable price go to L'Orillon in the 11th arrondisment.  Typical and delicious French food. 

Something unique which I haven't tried yet but will one day soon is Sunday lunch at Jimmy Haynes.  Google him and check it out, if you go let me know.  As I haven't been yet. It could be great, or not, just different... he says
"Every week for the past 30 years, I've hosted a Sunday dinner in my home in Paris. People, including total strangers, call or e-mail to book a spot. I hold the salon in my atelier, which used to be a sculpture studio. The first 50 or 60 people who call may come, and twice that many when the weather is nice and we can overflow into the garden. 
Every Sunday a different friend prepares a feast. Last week it was a philosophy student from Lisbon, and next week a dear friend from London will cook."  
 





Bisous to all..... Merci Beaucoup
