Lots of good news/bad news around here lately. The good news is my friend has sold her house here in the village after having it on the market for months. The bad news is that means I won't see her during the summer anymore. Good news, though...she lives year 'round in Cannes, so that means I have a great excuse to visit the Cote d'Azur. Bad news: she's had to sell or give away decades of memories that have lived in her pretty house up the hill. The good news for me is I've bought three of her beautiful tablecloths, two of which are lovely Irish linen decorated with cut-work and hand-embroidery. They fit my extended dining table perfectly. A little fancy for every day...I see a dinner party in my future!
