Paris flea market
Christel and Raymond
I'm home! I had the best trip of my life! There's nothing like hopping in a car and driving wherever your heart desires around France for a month. I never thought I would have that opportunity. I am a very lucky girl. It was an amazing experience - flea market treasures, great food, architectural eye candy, Belgian Chocolate (yes, that deserves to be capitalized) and scenery that took my breath away. Trying to post from my ipad proved a bit challenging. My intentions had been to post daily......well that didn't happen. I did bring a sketch book though and that was a happy ritual in the afternoons. The journal cover will be one of the patterns in the book Bonnie and I are publishing, inspired by this trip! Looking back, one of my favorite days was spent in Bruge, Belgium where Bonnie and I met up with our friend Christel, owner of 't Dreefhuys Quilt Shop, and her father Raymond. Raymond acted as our tour guide and was cute to boot!
I have just a few last pictures I really want to share with you and then it's back to designing while my French inspirations are still fresh in my mind!
