Going It Alone To France

Tomorrow I leave for France and for the first time I wil be driving there on my own. A bit daunting I must admit but hey I am quite capable.

I am staying with Charlotte and family for 2 weeks. It's brocante season so I will be in my element.

I am re-vamping Ghost Furniture to accomodate more French antiques, the sort I usually pass by because they don't need to be brought back to life.

Merci which is my favourite Parisian shop and it's holding an Urban Market during my stay.

Of course no visit to France should exclude a few trips to the food markets, they do them so well.

Stopping for coffee and people watching  is high on the agenda.

France is wonderful with its romantic villages and nice people. The market is the best place to get to know local people.
