Petites Choses Provençales!

Hello dear readers! How is your January going? I've been so busy working {which is trés bon, non?}, training le petit chiot Nicky, and putting the final touches on our Provence trip for Easter (!) that I've barely found time to write, read and comment on all your beautiful blogs. Until I have more time to sit down and really write... some lovely little images for you to enjoy that make my heart sing the song of Provence!

we missed these gorgeous luminaires at the latest
antiques auction in Provence... helas!

the apricot/tangerine color of this house
makes me happy!

tomatoes at the Aix-en-P. market

campanile... bell tower, graceful, lacy and found
all over Provence

my first purchases in Provence:
deco leather club chair and empire chandelier

the pigments found in Rouissillon, the magical
village where they make and celebrate

so pretty from Pierre Frey "Tree of Life"

witty Provençal cocktail table from Roche-Bobois

happy print from Les Olivades

the no-color look of

another Les Olivades stripe linen

elegant iron towel rack from Coté Bastide

sumptuous tiled bathroom

Les Olivades toile de juoy in sunny yellow

glasses Coté Bastide

Matisse fabric Les Olivades

I think this gorgeous bedroom is Roche-Bobois, but
not sure!

les Indiennes in cotton

typical country home in Provence

Pierre Frey of course!

desolé! my auction review shows we also missed
this stunning necklace at the Provence sale!

well who else but Roche-Bobois can do Provence like this?

a happy scene in a village square... boules!

ribbons at an outdoor market

sit a while at l'Isle sur la Sorgue... a little rest from
all the fabulous antiquing and brocanting!

  5. So much to love about this post! Like the club chair and chandelier (love, love, love!), the LV sketch, the surprise splashes of color in ribbons and tiles - all brought back down to earth by the Coté Bastide no-color look. Very nice.

  6. Dear Sirs
    We want to introduce the new board Wandaloop Geographic where they can put a link to your website totally free.
    01DIRECTORIO WANDALOOP is the first directory that is based solely on a sort of geographic zones (similar to the DMOZ directory), so it is easy to find businesses, companies and institutions of a province or country.

    You only go to:
    Add url

    and include a link to your website so that everyone gets to know her.
    Thank you for your attention
