for me

Even though I buy things every week I am not acquisitive and get even less so as I get older. I am happy to search out and buy things I like and then see them go off to all corners of the globe. (corner? globe? never thought about that one before!) 
My favourite presents are ones that I can eat or read. But... I saw this little old French tile at this morning's brocante and thought - you're coming home and staying home with me.

myrtilles 1942

I bought this jar at the brocante yesterday. I wonder why it was never used again - but kept for 74 years?  Those are 2016 blackcurrants by the way not 1942 myrtilles!

lunch for one

We're having some cooler days and have had some rain, both of which are greatly appreciated by the vegetable garden (and me!).
