My Italian fixer upper

So, I have wanted a little place to fix up for a while.
Whenever we are in France, I always pick up the "dream books" that are in front of the 
realty offices. They are swoon worthy reading, let me tell you.
Since we were so close to the Italian border, we decided to visit. Big mistake-hehe.

I am not a picky person BUT I do have some requirements.

There has to be a fabulous market.
This is one fabulous market. Just look....

Such variety.
And there has to be lots of these....
truly majestic flowers.

 Besides food, I need a regular market to fill all the other needs.
O.K, I checked off another requirement. Loved the market.

 I would love a beautiful walkway to my house.
Are you ready? AMAZING!

There is more.
Hubby has to look good while crossing the bridge to get home. 
This is an eye rolling moment. Love ya hubby!
Just across the bridge. Ahhhh.

I require a killer view. Are you ready? 
The angels are singing.

Now, I mentioned a little fixer upper. I can see the potential in just
about everyone and everything. This house is no different. It just
needs a little LOVE.
It has potential, just needs some minor repairs.
The back is quite spectacular as well.
Just a little work. Hubby could actually see the potential as well.
So, there you have it. Just keep going back to the view.

We had a great time, it went by way tooo fast.
I purchased some goodies which will eventually make it
to The French Elements. Can I just say VINTAGE and EXQUISITE.
Back to reality today. My car broke down on the way to the store and had to be towed 
to the dealership. Not going to stress but going to focus on my little
fixer upper. I may be walking everywhere (very European).

Hugs and love!

Greetings from the south of France

Oh my goodness...... having the time of our lives.
We have experienced so much already. 
Sunny days, gusty wind, rain, HAIL.
It all seems ok here.
Keeping this short, just wanted to say "bonjour".

big hugs to each of you.

P.S. I have taken so many pics. It will be a fulltime job going through them.

He Said...(part 2)

FRANCE.....and she started running around the house screaming.
Actually, he had me at FR. Didn't need to finish the word. We leave
for France day after tomorrow for several weeks. Pinching myself and 
thanking God. I can't wait to visit some of my favorite markets again.
Hopefully, we will return with some good finds. I hope to post while there, ok,
I said HOPE. Not promising. Hehe.
If I don't show up back here or on Facebook, I am probably floating
somewhere in the Med. 

Love and big hugs!

Au revoir

Easter wishes

I am so thankful for the greatest gift of all.
It is not about the meal (although we love it),
the clothes, the baskets, the eggs, but about life.
Forever. May each of you find that gift this year.
Big hugs,
