On Sunday I went off to a little fete and met up with a good friend of mine who also enjoys looking at all the 'bits' ! I bought some wonderful tomatoes - all strange shapes, some dark red and green but wonderful flavour. At the end I saw a lovely old rattan covered suitcase lined with paper with a design of birds in blue and white - always a favourite. So the case came home with me and I left it in the sunshine to air. Pie immediately hopped in and decided it was just the place for her to enjoy the sunshine. I must say she did look good against the blue and white lining.
I live in a late 18th century farmhouse or longere
with my husband .
I taught Art in England for over 35 years and have always done my own work.
We moved to France over 12 years ago and and continue to work on the renovation of the house and making the garden. I make many things out of old textiles and also sell vintage sheets etc.
I have had over 6 exhibitions of my art work since living here and in the summer manage a small art gallery in a nearby village. I make home made cards and other ephemera.
