If you had one wish....

....apart from the usual health, wealth and happiness...(with a little bit of world peace thrown in)...what would it be???
For me I think...no, Idon't think, I know....it would be to live in France for 12 months.
....to live in a building like this...

....or this?...

....to be able to buy beautiful flowers...

....and cakes...

....to watch the sail boats...

....shop at the antique markets...

....visit the wonderful parks and gardens...

....and to shop for amazing chandeliers...

....I am there this week-end, if only in my dreams!!
"What is life if first we cannot dream"???

Hi Linda, your pics are so evocative but remember that France, as well as Italy, is also a state of mind.When I want to feel French I prepare tapenade, soup d'onions, baguette,a mixed salad with moutard de Dijon and I cook sipping some good wine. I lay the table with my pink provencal plates and a boutis tablecloth. If I can manage a couple of eclairs,well, that's make my day ;o))And some roses of course! Have a nice day Rosanna

Well....if I could choose, I would live there for the rest of my life!!!
Spending my days between living in Paris and somewhere in Provence!!!
But of course one year is more realistic, and better than nothing! Keep on dreaming...one day your (and mine) wish might come thrue :D

Who needs Calgon when they can come and visit your blog? (Do you know Calgon? As in the lady in the bathtub saying "Calgon, take me away!")

My dream would be to live in England, have a beautiful garden, drink tea and eat scones all day, and perhaps write a novel a la Jane Austen . . .

Hugs,
Teresa

Bonjour Madame said...

That's a lovely dream. I would love to be able to create more of that at home so I could live it every day.

Vane said...

Thinking on the wish, I must say I also share with you the same dream of living in France, but my life dream or that wish I will ask a star or a genius in a lamp will be to watch my mother walk, she is on a wheelchair since she was a baby. Definetly that will be my life dream. Maybe it seems so topic or excesive sentimental, but its what I see at the bottom of my heart.
Hugs!
Vanesa

How right you are ! What life would be without dreaming. As always beautiful photos. I am lucky because Paris is only one hour by train from Orléans where I live. My dream would be to live at the seaside but not far from Paris...

miniacollection said...

Sorry Linda, it's me again. Just to let you know that there is an award for you on my blog.

....I'm off to 'google' your home town!!

miniacollection said...

At the end of the week it's the holiday in France. I will take the opportunity, if the weather is not too bad (today it's raining a lot) to take photos of Orléans. I will publish them to make you and the other bloggers discover my town.
