I have just been to France for a few days with some very special friends, I always feel like I have come home when I arrive.
This time the boat was an hour later so I had to do the last part of the trip in the dark ..." another box ticked " as they say, but was given a warm welcome when I reached Les Pannards by Ticky Nick and the animals.
Each day we went off to forage for goodies and were not dissapointed, lots of lovely hemps which I have been slaving over and some lovely Linens.
My biggest thrill buying was a portfolio of 17 th century legal documents the earliest was 1628 , many on velum. They all relate to an Estate on the edge of the Mayenne forest near Place. I have real goose bumps looking at that amazing sepia colured ink and wonderful curly script. If you are interested please let me know.
