I have been meaning to put together this post for a while now but have been very busy networking and attending courses and conferences, along all the other responsibilties that I have.  This post is a follow up the the Sun Sea and Antiques post of during the summer, we spent a few days with a friend who happens to have a holiday home in France and while there we visited the local antiques and bric-a-bric where I discovered this lovely Singer Sewing Machine.  The timber cabinet which housed this machine was wonderfully carved, I just fell for it. 


Anyway I was home a few days when I got a call from my friend to say she’d returned to check the price and was dumbfounded to hear it was for a pricely sum of €15.00. She bought it and has it sitting in the corner of her sitting room ready for me to pick up next time I’m over.

The sea and sun were also welcome and it all seems like such a long time ago now, we were unlucky to have very few sunny days but it rained mainly each morning and picked up in the afternoon, so it wasn’t too bad as you can see from the photos below. The first is of  LaTrancheSurMer and the second is the port at La Rochelle.
