{ WIP & a beautiful village}

wip copie


The weather is absolutely delicious outside … I have a lot to do with my shop …finishing some products, some pre photo – shooting ironing … a few items to  ship … a little visit to the local post office … And I am making it very short. The item photo shooting will be for tomorrow. Hopefully. And if work hard enough , I may treat myself with a little walk by the river …and a croissant

Last week Monsieur le Marquis and I , left home for what we call “ un week end en amoureux” … Just the 2 of us … We entrusted our  doggy to the care of  “papi” ( JP’s father) , for a very little vacation … we left during the afternoon, to be back in the morning, the day after. we were not able to make it longer however we really needed this litlle break… It was quite improvised , and we chose a not-to-far destination . we also had the chance to “test” a new hotel …

I have taken tons of photos . Here come the first serie :

We went visiting Saint Béat , a pure jewel in the Pyrenees  with an outstanding view. The village itself is a little gem with real rustic charm and friendly “locals”.  It is historically very rich … you will see the 12th century donjon and part of the 14th cent. castle … and other beautiful eye candies.
We could stay there all afternoon ..and we will definitely go again ….

Go there to see where it is located exactly .

If you  would like to see more “tourism” photos …say “OUI” !!!  If you say it loud enough I may be able to hear you (I have bionic ears ..)  :)

Thank you so very much for your kind words. This little village is dreamy. I say, 'Oui!' to more travel photos. Your works in progress look so pretty and I will have to visit your Etsy shop.
