Le Blog on Holidays in France !

The CraftLee house is on Holidays !

I haven’t been able to Blog much lately because I have had no access to the internet but I’ve been itching to share my holiday adventures with you so it’s off to the local supermarket cafĂ© (with free WiFi!) for lunch.

Last Saturday we found our sea legs, took to the high seas and left Cork in Ireland for Roscoff in France.

Leaving Cork harbour you pass the beautiful colourful town of Cobh.

Lorna took this moody shot of a little boat zooming around against the background of the town.

Even Cooper managed to find her sea-legs ! Those Brittany Ferries people are so nice, dog’s have their own kennels & private running around area onboard !

We are going to be in France for 7 weeks ( I know ! We are truly blessed!) So first thing Monday morning its off to Saintes for a BIG food shopping & we stumble across a BIG street market ! What a great way to spend a few hours!

Beautifully presented aromatic salts …. Irresistible!

New shoes anyone ?! I love the look of these old French vehicles & what a lovely shoe shop it makes !!

Yummy fabrics ! I bought some … but not enough! (It’s never enough!)

I know this has been a long & picture heavy post but I just had to post some of the hollyhocks , they are everywhere ! When you go for a walk you can find them strewn on the roads, victims of speedy French cars !

Lorna gathered some up for me yesterday & I popped them on the mantelpiece with some donated roses from the neighbours to make a happy holiday posy !!

Thank you for visiting & hope to see you back here again soon !
