antiques... & pretty spots along the Sorgue


Pretty ~Isle sur la Sorgue~ in the Vauclause.

If you fancy a bit of antique shopping ~ well this is the place to go
absolutely jam packed with all sorts of bric~a~brac shops


~ducks make the best mothers~



lots of shady nooks and don't you love the colour
of these walls with the gorgeous blue/green shutters

Monique-: how special that was, to hear the couple singing by the watermill. I only wished I had taken a photo of it.

Debi-: There is so much so see in Provence and it would be easy to spend a week in this lovely village.

Dianne, I have not been to this place and it looks amazing! The third photo is just perfect and I would love to sit there for an afternoon with friends -- alons-y!

Those colours are beautiful! As for the duckies ~ I always hold my breath when I see them waddling across streets. Seeing them in the water like this is much more relaxing.

Hello Dianne,
I love your blog - I visit here to get a daily fix for my withdrawal symptoms ..I am so in love with France.
re the crosses on my blog post..yes, I decided on the same one you suggested. It actually has a Christ figure which can be removed, I like it without the figure.. love Colette

You have a beautiful blog full of lovely photos. I love the shady nook with its warm colours, it reminds me of a winery in the Yarra Valley. Thank you for visiting and your nice comments.
Enjoy your day.☺

Francine Gardner said...

I was there the same day! i have been going for the past 15 years to work with a couple of dealers. The antiques are not so great anymore and overpriced but the village is delightful! i had the most wonderful lunch on Sunday under the "tonelle" Perhaps, next time we could meet up thee for a lunch...

"All things French" said...

Yes Francine ~ next year under the tonelle ~ how wonderful that would be.

Diane, this is one of our favorite cities to visit in Provence. The market and the Brocante is such fun to visit on Sunday, that is if you don't mind the crowds. You've captured it beautifully.

My only regret is that I didn't have room in my luggage for all of the wonderful French goodies we saw while browsing around.
A bientot,
Sam
