A lovely present.

Last weekend Tony and I held a party in our wood. All day we worried that it would rain so we begged and borrowed lots of open sided tents. With the help of friends we gave each one 3 sides and al 72 of us could have been seated and under cover if it had rained. We decorated the inside of every one with summer coloured paper flowers we had already made and hung up my many wedding sari's. It all looked very pretty, the rain held off ,it was warm and we danced and danced to a live Irish group and ate and drank to ours hearts content.
The next morning ( and we went to bed extremly late) Tony got up at 5:00 and went to a Brocante!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lots of people meantime turned up and helped dismantle and restore the wood to its usual beautiful calm self.
Just as we finished he came back with a bag full of treasures which we all duely admired.

The weekend before he bought me the little painting of the young girl,it was framed very badly so I immediately took it out of its frame.Imagine my surprise when I found the other portrait on the back. I love them both ,now have the dilemma of which side to show.


  1. Wow, that really was a find! You could rotate which one you show or make a print of the other. I like the older woman best, her look makes me wonder what she is thinking and I love the colors in the painting.

  2. Sounds idyllic!

    Brocantes are always fun's the wondering about what treasure you might find this time :-)

    ...and I also prefer the older lady.....

    Thanks for calling by my blog...

    ...I'm adding yours to my list :-D
