I want to share another memory of our vacation in France. Along the cost of the Vendee you find lovely white houses with blue windowshutters. They not use one kind of blue, but you can find a lot of different kinds of bluetones. Poolblue, lavenderblue, skyblue, greyblue, .......A lot of the houses have hollyhocks in their gardens. Super beautiful. I tried it several times in our own garden but didn't succeed. I think because we don't have enough sun and warmth. So, I tried to make a card wich expresses my adoration of what I saw. It is not a piece of art, but it has something sweet.
And here is a photo to explain what I meant with the white houses and the blue windowshutters.

While we were in the Vendee we visited "Bourinne du Bois Juquaud". A lovely farm of former days. They say : "..it is a reminder of what was life like in the Vendee Breton Marshes during the early part of the 20th century". It now is used as a kind of museum. You can get an idea of how people lived then.

Made this little card while we were in France. The background is a leftover of a former project. I took some of those scraps with me on vacation. The stamp is by Hero Arts. I got it just before we left home, and I want to use it of course. I colored it with Derwent Color Soft Pencils. This is a photo of a evening walk along the borders of "Lac du Gue Gorand" .The light was so beautiful. You can't see it on this photo unfortunately. But it was an inspiration, thats for sure!

I want to share with you a photo of a white windmill somewhere along the cost of the Vendee. You can find them everywhere. It was situated on a lovely spot on top of a dune near the beach.
