To Market, To Market ....

Market day in the South of France ......

The feast for the eye is overwhelming.  The aromas entice you, up one row and down another.

You become a gatherer. You gather this .....

and this .....

and this .....

Until your arms beg you to cease while your senses scream for more.

I'm off to market tomorrow. A different one from this, tho no less enticing. One of this country's largest and most exciting "brocantes". Heading west to the Hill Country of Texas. A very good brocante friend is coming along for the ride and roped in her side kick for the journey.

Hope you'll hang around for the stories and the adventures. There have been more than a few this past week and like everything we seem to love, they only get better with age. A brief stop in Atlanta tomorrow to pick up the Cowboy and then we're off. Hang on.... the first stop is the Big Easy. Here we come New Orleans! 

Head 'em up and move 'em out!



  1. I hope you all have a wonderful time!
    Happy hunting and gathering!

  2. Just discovered you via Tongue in Cheek. Love your blog.
