French Rustic Shirts

I love these rustic shirts in Linen and Hemp and the Indigo Blaudes when we can find them, they are great worn with footless tights having seen a friend with that combination.
wonderful for Re enactment, we had some people at Petworth buying them for that.

France cont. Msr Gosselin

Friday morning is market day in Valognes and after a trip to Barneville Carteret (where I bought an amazing jacket my birthday pressie from David reduced from 169eur to 50 eur how good is that! ) we went off to market on another cloudless day and spent a happy hour amongst the stalls before heading for our lunchtime destination the harbour side of St Vaast where we have always crammed ourselves into the front deck of a tiny cafe almost a kiosk where we used to have crepes and a cup of cider while watching the oyster tractors and the boat traffic.
Quel damage!! it was gone ! however the place next door looked inviting and was a huge success .Penny had spotted a starter of pan fried prawns in balsamic so with some bread and frites and salad it was a feast, sort of caramelized onions and balsamic with prawns , can't wait to try my own version.
St Vaast has an emporium which has been there since 1920 and is a place not to pass by if you are a foodie. It is a pilgrimage for us

Latest buys
