The old painting was in the shop's window, at the moment I took a photo a leaf fell tumbling exactly in the ray of light. Continue reading

When people say they are busy it bugs me. Everyone is busy, we know that the tendency to say, "I have been so busy." Or, "Sorry I have been so busy." It is a pet peeve of mine. And yet these last couple of months I feel I have been on overdrive. The pet peeve word haunts me. My blog writing has taken a back seat as other events have taken the wheel. Thank you for your patience. The next group of Musettes arrive tomorrow morning. Ruth and I are ready, the itinerary is planned, the meals organized, car rented, flowers in vases, and wine ready to be served. Chelsea called and talked wedding. As you can imagine that is a pretty conversation. They haven't found a place and that is a bit nerving. Martin (Mr. Espresso) has called over seventy venues most of them are booked next year or two small. Martin comes from a big close-knit family. If my family lived in France our two families would have to rent a stadium to hold everyone. Fortunately, that isn't the case. I hope some of my immediate family come over, my mom, my brothers, and their families... but I know it is expensive to travel. Chelsea said, "There is plenty to think about, plan, decide, budget and do. I don't know if it is worth all the expense of money, time and energy to think about this for several months for one day. Maybe we should just have a small wedding just us and go out to dinner." My daughter is practical. And in love. She went on to say, "Martin is completely gaga over the wedding he talks about it constantly, he is more the "girl" than I am." My future son in law is directive, take charge and in touch with beauty. I asked Chelsea, "When you think of your wedding what do you want (outside of love, happiness, family, and friends). She replied, "An old beautiful place to celebrate, a lovely meal and dancing." Oh, that rocks! I wonder who has a chateau that I could borrow? In the end, the most important thing is that love is celebrated, even if it is a picnic under that stars. Other notes: Sacha is well working and happy. I am surprised how full of emotion I am. I knew I would be sad, but this has tapped into... Continue reading

Heart top pharmacy bottles from the 1900s. We saw these during the French Muse. My friend Mo made these black clay with white glaze olive branches to decorate one's napkin, or to attach to a gift... So sweet! More of Mo's beautiful wares. Yes, that is Ruth standing on a flimsy garden chair while taking photos for the French Muse. Continue reading

The French Muse had come to an end, what a lovely group of women Ruth and I had the pleasure of meeting and sharing the week together. As the internet was terribly faulty I posted photos without text. I hope to share some stories and our adventures this week. Though as we have three back to back Muses I might not be able to write much. Full of activity with tiny breathers in between. If you follow me on Instagram I post many many photos and videos on my story line. You need only to click on my face to see xxx Continue reading
