Agapanthus garden














 




















Hello Friends,  

Yesterday, we decided to go out, the weather forecast was not too bad and we visited three gardens.
The first one is called “ le jardin Agapanthe”and is my favorite garden.
We were the first one in the garden and had it for ourselves for some time.
It’s a very romantic garden, with water all along the paths .
You have sometimes to make your way through the vegetation
To discover what’s next.
In fact there are two gardens in the village separated by a lane.
I will tell you more about the garden soon.

I forgot one photo of the exhibition, one of the best one to me, so I wanted to share it with you.I love the lights and shades of a summer day.
I hope you enjoy your Sunday!

Women in painting, Giverny museum.







 Hello Friends,

A few years ago, I went to visit an exhibition in the Giverny (Monet’s village) about women in painting.
I loved this exhibition and I wanted to share some pictures with you. Such a romantic exhibition! I hope you enjoy your weekend!

What to do with old maps? And souvenirs from Japan.





 Hello Friends,

Some years ago we bought this paper binder ( don’n know if it is the right word?) it was a cheap, plain one and I did’nt know what to do with it to match with the room decoration, in the study.
I had old maps of France I wanted to re use somewhere…
I painted the paper binder in white and then did a collage with the maps.
I must change the places of the drawers because as you can see Corsica is above Brittany… it’s  in total disorder!
I also changed the drawer handles.
Now it is a part of the decoration and I the old maps have a second use! When dry, I put some white acrylic paint on a cloth and did a sort of patina on top of it.
Hope you enjoy your day.


I have posted these souvenirs from Japan on my other blog and I thought it might interest you.
There are souvenirs from our trip to Japan, Kyoto and Nara.
