Two days ago people in our French village woke up
to this surprise. Our young friendly neighbour sent us
the photos - as we are not able to be there because of health issues.
The village road -
and behind the house - the last flooding seems
to have been 30 years ago.
We deposited our furniture from the farmhouse in the barn
ajoining the house - we hope the damage will be not too bad.
There are boxes and boxes full stuff gathered during lovely
summer stays in the Vosges - also many books - dictionaries and
non-fiction - about nature and wild animals and the region.
We got these absolutely charming New Year whishes from
the future proprietors of the farm house. Their 3 year old son
built the snowman. He is a love of a boy and the snowman tells
it all. We are happy that our so well cared of farmhouse will
be in good hands in a few weeks.
Meanwhile I am using the recovering time of DH
to work on a combined fabric-paper book.
Teapot and cup made by pulled stitches, but helas -
the fabric did not give itself to be pulled - so it looks
I love to do some needle lace
