Windows and Doors of Provence


Double click on picture to see details.

So much about travel intrigues me, including windows and doors.
So many windows had beautiful colors of shutters with lace curtains behind the windows. Entrances to churches were almost always elaborate carvings. And the decorations sitting outside the door of this little shop were so colorful.
Can you see the grapes hanging above the window of the home on the top right?
The grapes were ripe and ready to pick all over Provence. It was all I could do not to run up and pick them. They also added to the color of Provence.

There is something about this picture that is saying, "women, you better get yourself to France." We just love it there. Thanks for sharing.

Now wouldn't THAT be awesome, to reach out your window and be able to pick grapes! And I love that mannequin! I have thought about decorating my own mannequin crazy quilt style, so it's great to see that executed somewhere else first!
