I've been inundated with images of french country interiors the last few days. Perhaps someone is trying to tell me something? I'm not sure what it is, but since I have France on my mind, here's a FREE printable note card for you......Letters from France:
It includes some vintage images (one from the Graphics Fairy) and a couple of my own illustrations.
It's designed two cards to an 8.5 x 11 page. Click on image below, save to computer or copy and paste into document. Print and cut down the middle and fold in half. Stick in envelope. Easy as all that. When is the last time you wrote a note to a loved one and actually mailed it? Getting email just isn't the same.
What's in Store
I'm busy adding merchandise to the store, and here's just a taste.
A very cool antique piano music roll. Beethoven.
From 1900 no less.
And some very pretty handiwork.
Someone took their time embroidering this lovely table runner. So sweet.
Stop by Bates Mercantile Co. to see what else we have in store, like the little vintage dish.
More Fresh Air
Lucan and I got over to the field for a walk last night. It's really a great way to de-stress at the end of the day, get a little exercise, and of course some fresh air.
It started with bubbles of light.
Nose to the grindstone. Nix that. Nose to the grass.
Love old wood. Any kind. Even this fence post. So much character.
More dandelions. Weeds or not, they're so delicate.
Not giving up the stick. No way. No how.
A pop of color. Berry style.
A view of the barn, from the far end of the field.
One last look.
By the time we got back across the street, the sunset was changing to this.
A final goodbye to Summer. Though I love Fall, it makes me kind of sad.
Enjoy this Thursday in your little corner of the world and I'll do the same, despite the rain. I have wellies after all. Thanks for being here.
