Today the house, the fields, the hills are covered in grey cloud and its raining. I had intended to go and tackle the weeds, crop vegetables etc but that's not going to happen.
So, Radio 4 will keep me company and I will get on with my bags and also start some art work. Last year I was lucky to find some wonderful old photographs of people enjoying holidays at the seaside in Brittany. All of these holidays and day trips were made possible with the coming of the railways. I enjoyed making the collages and finding interesting things to use as well as making the miniature bunting. Old photographs so often just stay in a box and they'll gradually fade away - memories all gone, history lost.
Tortue, Pie and Samuel have all decided they're not going out today - what sensible creatures they are. I should do some collages using cats too!
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.
