Market In France













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.

  5. How lovely, and it looks as though you had a fab girly weekend. You might even have bumped into my daughter - she is studying in Lyon and went to Annecy last weekend - she sent me photos which included one of the house which is behind you and the crochet blanket! Thank you so much for sharing this, I'm delighted you have decided to keep blogging as I really enjoy your posts x

  7. I'm glad you got this day out...but I'm envious! Wish I could pop over to France, but alas, living in the US makes that a bit of a stretch! I could go over to Raleigh (North Carolina) for the day, but somehow that doesn't sound the same at all! Love your Blog!
