Postcards from the French Riviera!

Holidays are over...I came back yesterday night and today it's been a very busy day at work! I show you some photos I took during my Easter week end. I spent with some friends and with Paola, the friend who share with me our web-shop, a wonderful time...sun, flea markets, charming shops and delicious food!

Some pictures of Nice antique market...

Lovely villages....Valbonne...

...charming shops....

...Biôt... it's fantastic how they decorate windows and front doors... flowers and plants are everywhere!

We bought lots of new items for our web-shop...I'll show you our treasures in my next post...I still have to take the photos...

Thank you my friends for all the nice messages I found coming back...I'll answer you as soon as possible!!!

Hi Vale, Welcome back my dear friend. I am so happy you enjoyed your time in France.I adore all your photos and feel very homesick (France is not my real home, more my spiritual home, I hope it will be my home again in a few years) I lived in Nice for three months in the eighties and met Mr. Margie in Cannes then, we spent some happy afternoons in Biot during that time. Thank you for the memories(they are cherished).I am looking forward to seeing your purchases. Big hugs Margie.
