It’s Bastille Day today, and I am going to be in New York City to celebrate it… not really for that reason, just because it was time to take a day in NYC again.
Over the past few years, I’ve written about France time and time again. Herewith are some of my favourite stories that I’ve posted. Click on the image to view the post that it’s from.
I love the colour of the shutters on this house in Brittany. The Turgot Plan de Paris from 1734 always creates a lot of interest. I had adhered to my wall, but then I took it down and Connor chewed on it. Bad dog. Of course, one of my favourite French exports is their fabulous Hermès scarves. Earlier this spring, I managed to score two of them at a local thrift store. Nothing is prettier to me than old stone houses with blue-grey shutters, like these two French farm houses. First, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor’s country house, La Moulin de la Tuilerie in Gif-sur-Yvette. Then this château in Dordogne with its walled property and stunning farmhouse. I am excited to have lunch in a French-style cafe in New York and to visit a French inspired shop or two.
Ayez un jour brillant!
