Bonjour Lundi....

Bonjour mes amis, hope that you all had a fabulous weekend. Here in SW France it was a very busy with lots of guests at Maison No. 20 and also tres chaud (very hot) week-end.

Which means that I am going to be spending most of my day doing the washing and cleaning.

I would rather be in Nice near the sea, cruising the gorgeous streets on this fabulous vespa. I particularly loved this about Nice - not only did all the young girls look chic but they all had shiny vespas.

Mr FF thinks that I should stick to my velo, as it is not as dangerous. There is a company that hires them nearby for anyone that thinks that they may like to give it a try.

Je vous souhaite à tous une semaine fabuleuse,

  1. Wow fantastic photo! Love the red Vespa but I think I would stick to the velo myself :) Happy Monday.

  2. A shiny red vespa. Now that's something I may try...someday. They are quite nice, aren't they?

  3. You would look tres tres chic on a wee Vespa Leeann. Is now a good time to confess that we have one in our garage that is just waiting for me to learn how to ride it!

  4. I saw more girls on vespa's in Rome and they were all very young, and beautiful, and nerves of steel!!!

    I'm so glad that Maison #20 is flourishing.
