It has been a little over 2 years ago since I took that glorious trip to France
with friends and fellow bloggers. It was a most memorable and fun trip.
I often think about the mornings there.
As I sit in a quiet place in my dining room sitting area
with my first cup of coffee to start the day.
And speaking of “mornings” I am joining 5 fabulous fellow bloggers today
on their perspective of a Country French morning.
I reminisce about the first morning in Normandy, France,
at the elegant bed and breakfast, Le Clos De Grace.
There was a beautiful sense of peace in the morning
as you gazed upon the glistening dew on the ground
as the sun rose to a glorious day.
We started off the day with a most amazing breakfast served on
exquisite china and Christolfle silver.
My mornings usually start off on the upper back porch, coffee in hand.
However, with the weather being quite cold, I sit in the next best place.
The sitting area in the dining room.
Where my vintage French enamelware pitcher and dwarf myrtle topiary
remind me of my days antiquing in France and traveling through the countryside
gazing at the beautiful landscape.
We changed hotels the second night in Normandy to another beautiful place.
Where the breakfast was served buffet style.
Love the silver 3-tiered tray.
So on these cold mornings, I sit in the chair with the beautiful wool wrap
that adorns the chair.
The wrap that I purchased at one of the amazing Paris markets.
Here I find myself reminiscing of the wonderful mornings of France.
Where I most enjoyed the fabulous croissants and amazing fresh yogurt
in cute jars that we all hoarded and took home.
The days always starting off on a beautiful note and with the anticipation
of a great day of antiquing, wonderful, wonderful food, and friendship.
Our very first morning in France we were picked up at the airport by our host and hostess
and taken to many iconic landmarks in Paris, including this one:
Where we truly meant, “you should be here”, enjoying the beauty
that surrounded us from the morning . . .
to the enchanting lights just before sunset.
I’m joining with 5 other bloggers to bring you this French Country Design Series.
Once a month we’ll post as a group our unique perspectives on a common theme, and this is the first of our three month series, “Morning, Noon and Night”. I invite you to enjoy the wonderful posts below evoking a French Country Morning…
Hope many of your mornings are reminiscent of beautiful places you have been.
Have a wonderful day!!!
