So in love with this motorcycle truck.

I use to call them "coffin on wheels".

1496

 

The oldest document I have ever found.

1476.

I will write more about how I found this document, and what it says.

But for now ....

Wow, pinch me.

 

 

 

 

       

The Painter's Album
2017-04-27 21:42 UTC by Tongue in Cheek

antique miniature provencal watercolors

 

 

In a black album with gold lettering, a group of miniature water colors.

At the brocantes there are plenty of boxes to look through with bundles of lace to untie, books dating back to the 1700s, dishes stacked, odd bits tucked inside for safe keeping, and pieces that have been passed down over the years. Those boxes overflow...

Rose Garden ...

Bedofroses

 

 

 

Life isn't a bed of roses. But when the petals of kindness surround us, it sure feels good. We all need affirmation, praise, someone to tell us we look good, or a word or two leading us in the right direction. Kindness goes a long way doesn't it? Though my Mother would say, "... a bop on the head or two, isn't always...

Cassis cliffs

 

 Flashback Memory 2011....

 

 

The Young Girl in the hospital, landed in the bed next to me, when she fractured one of her vertebrae jumping off the rocky edge into the sea below. It was her first time in the Mediterranean, she was here visiting her boyfriend.

In Our Garden

In the garden, Provence, Spring

 

 

The Judas tree's pink petals are dropping, pink snowflakes.

"Judas Tree is a common name for a flowering tree, Cercis siliquastrum from which Judas Iscariot is reputed to have hanged himself." French Husband told me this about the Judas tree. I preferred not knowing that tale.

Before Chelsea left for Bangladesh, we celebrated Easter early. We gathered together in Cassis because French Husband had a surprise to share with us. We knew the surprise, but didn't really believe it, could it really be as good as he was telling us. Not that he embellishes stories, or distorts the truth, far from it....

‎Nouveau Recueil de Chansons Choisies = New Collection of Selected Songs
2017-04-21 21:02 UTC by Tongue in Cheek

 

‎Nouveau recueil de chansons choisies

 

It never fails when I am at the brocante that I will be digging in some dusty old box, rummaging for books, the older the better. Criteria: 1700s, worn loved cover, paper or leather, engravings are a plus and then the topic.

French Brocante

 

 

Brocante in pink. I am not a pink girl. Rarely, when Chelsea was a wee one, did I dress her in pink. Though, spring with the many pink trees in bloom is just too beautiful not to give pink a salut. 

A turn of the century, pink transferware aperitif dish. Two pink birds give bluebirds a run for happiness.
