we must carry it with us or we find it not

Blue Shutters Green Shutters ........



I have been inspired after visiting Jacqueline Newbold's site
"Art In My Heart"  to post more of my photos
taken whilst in La Belle Provence

These two photos were taken in the delightful hilltop village of
Crillon-Le-Brave situated in the Vaucluse department of Provence
wonderful old rustic stonework houses
and shutters galore in greens and blues and
that lovely buttery shade of yellow.
Truly an artist's delight!

Delightful captures they are and I wish I was there right now! Delightful looking place and your captures brought back such lovely memories of the years I lived in Europe -- as always! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

Hi Dianne,

The shutters are such beautiful colours and love the old stone buildings and houses.
Lovely to look back at your photos and remember the great times you had there.

Hope that you have had a lovely weekend
Hugs

These photos capture the very essence of the area Dianne. I almost feel as if I'm there with the warm sun on my back!

Gorgeous photos, as always, Dianne. My current post is about Ruth Phillips and her artist husband Julian Merrow-Smith. She's written a lovely book about their life and first Provencal home in...Crillon-le-Brave, and subsequently in a hamlet nearby.

"Delightful" is really a proper word for such a beautiful setting!
God bless you!

Deborah - That sounds interesting - I'll click over to your post and take a look - a lot of people have never heard of this Petit village.

I hope to visit Provence myself sometime soon. It looks just gorgeous. I love the quaint little houses and shutters!

The epitome of French (and provencal) village life... Well done. I can't wait to go back myself next week and will be blogging about my French travels during the trip. A bientot, Veronique aka French Girl in Seattle

Oh, these are so lovely! The light, the colors...they are relaxing just to look at. I'm hoping we can visit Provence someday.
