Thank you for takng us there... ;-)


Oh the colours are simply breathtaking how gorgeous!


How lovely! Reminds me a bit of Montmarte,Paris but not as touristy and more colorful! Love the lavender- I have so many varities growing in my garden that I have grown myself and often pick a huge bunch like that-the scent indoors is heavenly. I've just aquired a yellow lavender and a white one and cannot wait to start growing cuttings! Thanks for sharing your trip!

I'm so happy you did get yourself a basket, they had your name written all over them!


Those are raffia baskets from Madagascar :-)


Oh gorgeous French market, beautiful colours. Welcome home by the way!


god, the colors, the flowers, the old tree, the yellow buildings, the wovenness of the color in the baskets, the pottery, the food itself. i can smell it!!! and the stinky cheese!
this recipe, from the old silver palate cookbook, is one of my favorites and among the quickest, for chicken liver pate. enjoy with thanks.



Lovely photography. But what is the project you have been working on? You are holding us all in suspense.


Oh... what lovely pictures!!!
belle :D


Glorious, simply glorious! :) xx


What a feast for the senses! I love the baskets and would have snapped up at least one big one :) The lavender must smell glorious!


Your pictures always give me peace...

Hi Lucy thanks for describing your wonderful trip. I soooo, want to learn to crochet, but haven't a clue where to start it looks confusing, could you point me to somewhere that explains and shows as if teaching a child? I fear thats the only way I may learn, thankyou x


In Holland we call the 'straw' raffia, google for raffia ribbon, I think that's what your beautiful bag is made of.


Hi Lucy,

Glad to see you back! I wish the fragrances of your trip could come thru the internet too!

BTW, a fabulous alternative for that espresso coffee maker is the Aeropress--available at amazon.uk. And it's less than £27! It's got nearly 1500 reviews at amazon.us if you want to read more about it.


I love your way of feeling and living colours, the fact that your eyes are able to catch the magic of every single thing in life and I admire your capability to make me feel as if I was there. THANKS!!!

Hi Lucy, welcome back! Thanks for sharing your Trip with us. It looks so much fun and very inspirational x
