  1. Je dois te dire que tu as du très bon goût!
    Love your collage; I was using Picnic, but they are closing down. I have to learn Picasa; is it difficult? I will keep you posted if my brain is ready for Picassa.

  14. Wish I had the space to collect soup tureens, Monique. I LOVE them! Only have one, though. I'm trying to downsize here as I get older...very difficult when I see images like yours. :)

  16. Wonderful collage. Nothing there that couldn't be one of my favorite things!! I am especially intrigued by doors (and gates). When we lived in Charleston, S.C., I was always photographing them--a "lurker" with a camera.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  24. Your home must be beautiful! You have quite an eye all things French. You must have been from the South of France in a former life.

  28. Monique I tried to leave a comment on 'Petites Pies' but it says: New comments have been disabled for this post by a blog administrator.

    Have a great day!

  29. I thought there was something wrong the other day when I wanted to comment, I just couldn't! but anyways I was going to say that I really love your mini pies, I'm a big fan of individual desserts or petite desserts, you can be more careful with the portions you are eating

  30. Beautiful as always
    You're such a clever duck!

  31. I enjoyed your piece about the cute little pie maker and you've reminded me how much I miss cooking from Jamie's cookbooks. His style is so effortless and his personality engaging. Have a wonderful break full of more of your favorite things!
