Here is something else that is fabulously french - those petit yellow vans that you see everywhere in France. They remind me of bumble bees as they are always so efficient in their work, buzzing around the countryside and I now understand why most french people prefer to shop using the internet.
This morning a fabulous black & white toile de jouy noticeboard arrived and the maker had wrapped it in the most colourful paper complete with thirty different coloured stamps - it was almost too pretty to unwrap. I unwrapped it carefully as the stamps were too pretty to throw away and I have taken a photo of it and it is now displayed on the fabulously french online shop.
It is sunny again here, perfect blue sky and not a cloud in the sky............................perfect.
