Little bits of inspiration for you today...
whether it be a treasure from the seashore
wrapped around a pretty white padded hanger...
Or perhaps an antique camisole that will be
making its way into the store.
Our days are getting cooler
can feel fall coming on even more now...
See my little kitty, Gigi in the photo?
She's under the weather today w/respiratory problems...
Would you say a little prayer for her?
We're worried about her, she's a gentle souled cat
this maison loves her dearly.
I'm trying to take in the blue sky and really appreciate
each moment, each ray of the Sun
We're so blessed to live in this little house,
under this blue sky with all its light shining
And, of course, enjoy these little bistro lights
outdoors while walking through the gravel ;)
We're hearing it's going to rain
so we're just cherishing this Sun
here today and thinking good thoughts
for little Gigi Girl
Look at this big blue sky & clouds
(just trying to see if I can make out a figure here ;)
Ooh, and smell the clean, cool breezes
Singing birdies on the wire!
some lavender a dear friend gave me
she gave me some white lavender too...
Thought that's what I shot for this photo, but non
(more about white lavender later)
Just look at that gravel...
Hubby loves the subject of gravel...
going to need more gravel ;)
And all the chirping sounds that goes with happy birds
eating sunflower seeds we grew here this summer!
I've been eating tons of our local produce...
Gravenstein apples and champagne grapes
What's fresh in your area,
what are your favs
of the moment?
I've included one of my favorite French salad
recipes for what we call
Genevieve's Apple et Endive Salade
(Genevieve's a childhood family friend)
It's so easy!
2 Belgian endive
2 Gravenstein apples
(or whatever kind you like!)
2 T chopped basil
3T olive oil
(we're using Picholine these days)
1 T lemon juice
1/2 tsp whole grain mustard
(we use Maille or Grey Poupon)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Cut endive & apple in wedges
Whisk olive oil, lemon juice & mustard together
Add chopped basil to endive & apple mixture
pour olive oil mixture over
Add salt & pepper to taste
Serves 4- 6
Thanks for your Gigi prayers

Happiness to you!
