all things French...

 (Kim Klassen's partings texture, hard light, 50% opacity)
When I'm out antiquing or thrifting, I have a hard time resisting anything I find that comes from France, anything within my budget that is.  (My ancestors on my Mama's side were from France and some of the first settlers of Prince Edward Island, where Mama was born and where the family homestead still remains in the family.)

On our last trip to the Oregon coast  I went to my favorite antique/junk store.  There I spied this little olive oil bottle marked Marseille, France.  It was inexpensive, which meant it was a no brainer that it was coming home with me.

The book, On Rue Tatin, was a Goodwill find.  It's a thoroughly enjoyable read about a young couple who turned an old convent in Normandy into their home.

I was blessed to be able to spend a day in Paris last summer when we were in London.  It was a dream come true. My heart is hurting today over the news of another horrible act of terrorism in France.
