A French Country Weekend



It appears my beautiful real apples dipped in silver wax have staying power. They were my first post holiday splurge and my florist warned me she had no idea how long they would stay round and firm.

Potentially they could shrivel up beneath the wax, but apparently not. I really, really like them and am hoping they will last if not eternally at least until next Christmas.

I'm off to the markets.

Weather report: crisp, sunny -- all-in-all a beautiful day.

A demain mes trés, trés, cher amis.

Love the apples. Lovely weather today after violent storms yesterday. Time to begin the clean-up of the garden for planting flowers a bit later. Enjoy your marketing.

Not only have the apples held up but if I am not mistaken that looks like a poinsettia! Mine have been long gone so I'd suggest that you have a gift for keeping things looking lovely a long time Tish!

Your crisp & sunny sounds lovely! (It was a strange, creepy, stormy day and night in my part of the world... all the better for an ear to the weather channel and an eye on delicious design magazines - divertissant!)

wishing you a glorious weekend.

Hi Tish

The apples are beautiful and would make a great still life painting.

Hope you find fresh and delicious items at the market

Hello,
I love your blog! Your posts have helped me refine my wardrobe needs and priorities, in general and in view of my upcoming summer in France. I wonder if I may ask a question about hair styling tools? I plan to buy a 220v flat iron for travel. These are available in the States from Folica (Sedu brand with type C plug). I'd love your advice on whether to buy a flat iron in advance, taking a chance that the plug type will fit in outlets, or wait and purchase on arrival in Paris. Merci beaucoup!

How nice that the apples have lasted this long. I bought some cinnamon scented pine cones at Christmas and can't bear to throw them away yet because they are still fragrant.

Definitely buy your flatiron and other styling tools before you come here. You most definitely do not have to buy 220. I have my Clarisonic, electric toothbrush, Fuji camera, Kindle and on and on were all purchased in the States. I simply use a plug adapter and have never had any problems.

Perhaps you don't need to buy anything but the plug unless you want smaller travel sizes of your tools.

I hope you have a wonderful vacation.

Love the title of your blog. There are so many corners of France that are lovely. I posted on one in Normandy here http://caroleschatter.blogspot.co.nz/2011/11/bagnoles-de-lorne.html
