vendredi fleurs...

{Beautiful flowers at our friend's house}

The first Friday in September has arrived and although it is still very warm during the day -31 degrees it is cooling down to 10 degrees at night which is perfect for sleeping.

Yesterday was a busy day in the shop and everyone was busying candles and napkins so I suspect that the dinner party season is about to commence.

We are going to a vide grenier on Sunday so fingers crossed that there are lots of "tresors".

What are your plans for this weekend? I would love to hear all about them....

Quels sont vos projets pour ce week-end? J'aimerais tout savoir sur vos projets ....

Bon week-end a tous,

  1. It is still Thursday night at my place... Tomorrow I plan on starting "French Fridays". A few years ago I and my friend had "French Fridays" - we learned one French phrase every Friday. My friend died two years ago at age 50 because of a stroke. Your blog inspired me to get back to my tradition to keep up with those fond memories of my friend. I hope to learn a lot from you now. Thank you!

  2. Bonjour Leeann,

    Your friends house and flowers are lovely.
    Enjoy your weekend and I hope you find some tresors at the vide grenier.
    I am hoping to get out in the garden if the weather is nice.


  3. Bonjour Leeann.

    I want to go vide grenier with you, I will carry all the goodies you buy(smile) but I am busy cleaning up the house, putting out all the junk for the collection, dropping off my little princess's outgrown clothes at Salvation, a lot of house work to do.

    You have a Bon- week-end!
    Don't forget to take a lot of photo's at vide grenier.

    Enjoy your vide grenier! I think this is always a fantastic adventure! I would love to go with you!!
