Back from France!

I am back from France, and it is great to be home.  Some people have asked if I went alone.  Yes, I did – this response admittedly caused a few raised eyebrows!  I’m not sure where to start, writing about my travels…but it is worth writing about, if only for my own sake.  However, I hope you may enjoy reading about it too. Perhaps you may have visited France and are longing to return.

French Market Baskets

Hello, this blog’s been sadly neglected and I hope to write more here soon. Can’t believe we are almost at Easter..it feels like each year moves more quickly. Market baskets that have just arrived to the shop. I have had one of these for a couple of years and it sits under our hall table. Ironically I don’t use mine much for market visits – instead it gets used for everything from heading down to the beach, a day trip to throw everyone’s hats/snacks/water bottles into, and even as an overnight bag. They are always functional and look great around...
