Not enough hours in the day

image

So apparently the daily brocante hunt, travel between the Provençal regions, early mornings and late nights do not mix with attempting regular blog posts.  So much to see and do and so many fabulous things to pore over, touch and consider “Will this fit in my suitcase going home?” Mix that in with a feast set in the shadow of a centuries old castle and lack of a WiFi signal, and blog posting becomes a secondhand thought.  Do I stay up late to post photos or do I sleep so I can be up early to set off again to the next beautiful place of discovery?  Sleep wins out every time.  Combine that with the laughs along the way with five people who just met and have become great friends  and you’ll understand.  More to come.

“Reves d’argile,” or “Dreams of Clay.”  White glaze over black clay.  So simple and so beautiful.

The hardware on French cabinetry is a work of art in and of itself — it adds new meaning to “form or function?”

  1. I called Lynn yesterday to see if I had missed a blog, but she said that she hadn’t gotten anything either. Everything looks so beautiful and that includes the blogger. Can’t wait to hear all the details.
