A gift from heaven...

Yesterday morning was cold and wet, the kind of day that makes you want to curl up with a good book.

My post lady arrived mid morning bearing a fabulous package for me. Perhaps it is a belated birthday gift she remarked, the joys of living in a petite village where everyone knows your business and what arrives in your mail box.......no secrets here.

Inside the large package was a beautifully wrapped book, the beautiful book that I won from the very fabulous Vicki Archer.


It is indeed a gift from heaven, page after page of beautiful photos.........

this photo is my favourite..


all the photos are stunning, Vicki has truly captured the essence of life in the fabulous country that we proudly call our home.....




I am looking forward to curling up and reading all about Vicki's fabulous life.Merci beaucoup you are an inspiration to all of us antipodeans living in France.


A demain mes amies,
Leeann x

  1. What a great gift and nice to get on a cold and wet day when you can curl up with a good book and enjoy. I want to get a copy of that book very soon. Have read a few about Australians / English living in France and love learning all about the experience. It is a beautiful country with a great sense of style. G
