LACE in the Dordogne

We spent Wednesday at Ali Baba and then Brantome - nice day, but we were pooped out when we got back
The lace I found was satisfying, though, and for the first time I was pretty discerning in my choices. I was pleased to find some different little "dentelles" for my collection.

And, how does one resist the bindings and lace ribbon?

I can't.

Now, the rains have come and we are tucked into l'Espace working on our projects.

We were in Riberac this morning for the market. We had some lunch and then hopped in the car to be home. Some are napping and some are cozy at our tables being worker bees. I will share the results tomorrow.

It is July in France and the sunflower fields are bursting! The weather has been up and down - lots of sun mixed with huge thunderstorms that cool everything off. Awoke to fog yesterday, but today is blissfully filled with sunlight peeking through the clouds....glorious.

There was a festival in town a couple of weeks ago and the "flowers" are still in place. It is so magical (!) and they last through the storms because they are all plastic! Fantastic.....

I am so happy to be here again....kind of like my Mecca......

More later......have a great day wherever you are....xo
