French Market

My front door has a new look. On Saturday, I visited one of my favorite places "Julie's Cottage at Provence". This wonderful shop is full of creations made by it's talented owner. Every season Julie holds an event that draws people from all over the area. Florals are the main event, but the theme of French Market offers antique dealers, organic plants, yummy eats and artistic creations like jewelry and folkart.
The grounds and sweet little houses are decked out for Spring and the customers are plentiful. The day started out overcast, but by noon the Sunshine State lived up to it's name.

Here are some random shots...enjoy a stroll through Julie's Cottage.

How's that for a little taste of Spring color?

Now let's go out in the yard and see what's going on outside.

...fresh organic herbs...

...and flowers...

This great bunny was made using an antique candy mold. Isn't he great?

Another creation from an antique mold, made by...

...this lovely lady...Cathy. See the fabulous bunny she's holding? He came home with me. I brought three bunnies home and will show them in a later post...they are wonderful!


Hope you enjoyed visiting Julie's French Market...can't wait for her Fall event...I'll take my camera!

Enjoy the day,
