Carousels...how I adore them! I was surprised to find a different one in nearly every Centre Ville in France.

It was like being " smack bang " in the middle of Hansel and Gretel! What an imagination this man Gaudi had! I have never seen anything like this before...Wow!
The porter at the airport wanted to know if we didn't forget something since it looked like we brought our ' Casa ' with us. Smile. It wasn't 10 minutes later, in a strange city, on the other side of the road that my hubby was driving like a proper gypsy...off to see Gaudi's work.
Back in Paris hubby surprised me with " Let's visit Barcelona." Yes! I wanted to see Gaudi's work. He booked us into this Fabulous hotel ( he had all of this up his sleeve as it was our wedding anniversary, I just didn't know at the time.)

" The first time I saw Duncan Yard, I fell in love with it. It reminded me of the South of France and with the vision that I had for my shop, I knew Moi belonged there. "

If you drive past Duncan Yard in Pretoria you will see this mosaic on the outside wall, inspired by that visit
Back in France, hubby and I decided to visit Ville de Chartres, not far from Paris. This little town caused a new interest in my life, Picassiette...I still can't get over Raymond Isidore's life story. Bizarre! Unfortunately I don't find time to indulge in that anymore.
