Bon Voyage

Traveler Harriet had a beret good time exploring France.

One of her favorite places was Sault, a small town in the heart of lavender country.

Here's what she had to Marseille about her visit:

"Sault is a small, charming, Provençal town with a lovely fabric shop—Un Air De Provence.

Fabric production has a long history in Provence and the local fabrics reflect the vibrant colors and natural features of the south of France. The fabrics are beautifully displayed at local markets, shops, and on almost every table in Provence.

I am drawn to southern France by the vibrant colors, the delicious, locally sourced cuisine and the relaxed, old-world hospitality.

The minute I arrived in Sault, the pace seemed to slow down. I tried to immerse myself in the local culture by strolling through the markets, 

enjoying a coffee and a croissant at a small cafe, and listening to the language and observing local customs.

I loved smelling the lavender fields, 

walking on centuries-old cobbles, 

buying fresh-baked bread and pastries from Jeanina at the boulangerie, 

and tasting wine where the view is of vineyards stretching as far as the eye can see."

What an un-baguette​-able trip! And guess what? Harriet also found some really awesome fabric while in Sault.

 

Thanks for this special fabric find Harriet, it's awesomeness is brie-ond belief. Hugs and quiches!

 

Here’s to immersing yourself in a culture and croissant paths with the locals… & to feeling good — because after all, it’s Friday!

"Singapore is a country where old and new exist side-by-side.

From walking downtown through the streets lined with gleaming skyscrapers, to stumbling upon temples that are over a hundred years old, and to discovering a carefully preserved city block of traditional shop-fronts that date back to colonial days.
