:: ici ::

i t ' s h o l i d a y e v e L o v e l i e s !

 . . . and i have the day off!

 . . . so does Mr D!

* * *

waaaaay . . . back, when i was in high school, i was in French Club!

 does this little fact about me not surprise you?


a reaffirmation that this whole French connection has never been "un passant FANCI."

back to French club . . .

we made buttons and sold them to raise money for our classroom activities.

(classroom budgets have always needed to be supplemented with additional efforts.)

the two best selling buttons read . . .


which actually translates to "was down with monday".

or as we called it!  "down with Monday"!


my favorite!

the Friday button, and #1 seller.

pas travail 

bravo!  not (no) work tomorrow!

to this day lovelies, i say this to myself as i shut down my computer and

pack my tote at the end of the work week.

when i officially retire from the work world, i plan to paint the term on canvas . . .


. . . and have it scrolled on my retirement cake!

oui encore!

* * * 

the temp on 34 nearly hit 100 yesterday . . .  so out of the ordinary for the Pacific Northwest!

Mr D and i cooked, ate dinner and spent the evening out on our deck.

if you heard our music mix, you would laugh.

rock - hard rock - soul - folk - a touch of country - current -  and . . . Bocelli & Piaf.

such a mix.

Mr D is big on the tenors.  perhaps it's because his father was born in Italy.

 a tenor's voice was his father's favorite spin on the stereo in his childhood  home.

last night, the music went from Sweet Baby James to Jimmy Page to . . . this.

i loved it because it was French. he loved it because he loves listening

Bocelli, al fresco . . .  and Piaf takes him to the era of WWII.  Mr D is a history buff!

i staged it so you may chanter en français, ( only if you wish to.)

  brocante et botanicals . . . fraîche!

 . . . a find @ H&M . . . here and here and here!

( yes, that tablecloth is only 19.99! )

happy fbof!

i will be back to bring in "The Colors"  tomorrow!



  1. All sounds good. I heard of that heatwave. It is that hot (or hotter) all summer here. I don't like it. Have a good one.

  2. Hello Frenchy, my favorite French lady.:):) I loved your music list. I have been singing the songs of the Four Season, since watching Jersey Boys. LOL. I love the tenors also. Blessings to you and your sweet Mr D...for a wonderful weekend. xoxo,Susie

  3. You had me with the music!!!! LOVE Bocelli!!!
