The market in Annecy, France, is a real treat. To go there with a couple of girlfriends is even more of a treat. I was lucky enough to do this "girls-day-out-in-France" last weekend. YAY! Unfortunately the weather was not the best but this picturesque little town made up for the cold and grey sky with its cute narrow streets, colorful buildings and wonderful atmosphere. I just could not have enough of its beauty and charisma. This was my first visit here, but it won't be my last.
We left early in the morning and took our chance to have a traditional French breakfast at a cute café, indulging in croissants and brioches with hot chocolate. We wandered the market streets of the old town chasing treasures and I was very tempted to by a vintage crochet granny square throw... I saw it and had this vision of it belonging to a charcoal grey sofa of 2016 in a modern flat somewhere in Stockholm. I thought this crochet blanket would make a great interior design statement in a trendy home like that, bringing life and character with its vibrant colors and homespun style, linking the old with the new, the past with the future... I didn't buy it. It was only 40 Euros (!!! All those hours some lovely lady has spent making this blanket...), but I don't own a modern flat in Stockholm and I don't have a sofa of the latest 2016 model... So the blanket was left behind for someone else. I kind of regret it... Isn't it beautiful?
By noon the streets were packed and we escaped into a French restaurant for lunch (Eating out twice in the same day, WOW!). We had such a great time, purchased a few items and the day passed by way to quick. I'll go back there any day for yet another treat.
