FRENCH BREAD ON FRIDAY...les tons de terre!

i am thankful that someone parted with this little piece of French earth!

 "poterie société industrielle"?

( ...mid century 20? )


 i had been seeking a perfect grandma's cookie jar!

a slight detour of thought occurred when my next door neighbor

 passed a box of plums over the fence.

 le petit pot de terre ... filled with late summer plum sugar. 

( the box of plums held a perfect golden leaf. )

la couleurs de septembre are in grandmother's

 new/old cookie jar!


  1. how blessed you are + plums are my favorite.

  2. So special, especially receiving the contents from a neighbor.
    Love that touch of gold.
    Thank you for your kind comments on my deep blue vision.
    I decided to pause my comments shortly after yours came in, but I am SO glad I caught your lovely words just in time. :)
    Enjoy your weekend, L.

  3. Lynne, What a yummy gift from your neighbors. Looks nice in the little pot. Blessings for agreat weekend, xoxo,Susie

  4. Plums - so sweet right now - and a beautiful pot to hold them - Life Is Good!

  5. Oh, les prunes.....don't you just love the ruby red interior of these jewels? Some have the white flesh, some purple....any of them will do! Bonjour, Lynne! I hope your deck is done? My beams are done and we are loving the French farmhouse feel!!!!!!!


  6. Your plums are stunning....and my mouth is watering. Lovely, lovely post my friend. I always love stopping by your warm, cozy, stylish place.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  7. How did we miss each other this summer? I saw a comment from you on another blog and had to pop over. Hope you are enjoying just the last little bit of this glorious weather.! Plums and pottery...lucky girl!

  8. What a lovely neighbor you have! Plums and that pottery piece - perfect!! I am so enjoying the few yellow leaves I have seen thus far. I know, soon they will be everywhere! But for now they are still so very special!

  9. They are so beautiful as are your images! Love the golden leaf…makes me excited for spring!

  10. Lynne,
    What a wonderful neighbor to share the plums, and what a wonderful pot in which to display them. The golden leaf is the perfect touch for a look at fall.
