With everything that's happening at the house (you can check here), I thought I deserved, or at least needed, some time off.
My parents live in a lovely town so I left my paintbrushes in their garage and headed downtown.
It's on the seaside.
There are the most beautiful houses to admire while walking by.
It's also a city where there are wonderful bakers.
Tell me your mouth is not watering... Liars!
There's also a shop that has yummy old-fashioned (and still hand-made) lollipops.
In the right jar, the lollipop flavour is typical from Brittany: salted butter fudge. Yummy!
Plus, bonus for me, it's amazing how many English shops there are in this French town!
"Jane Petticoat" has the most perfect china!
The owner of this tea room is always smiling. Have a look inside.
There's even an antique shop that specializes in everything English and old from teaspoons to china cabinets....
The best thing is maybe that the owner has a delicious accent...from Spain!
OK, I was just kidding, not about the accent, she's truly Mediterranean, but about this being the best thing.
The best thing is that it's the only shop on the coast selling...
that's right, Emma Bridgewater mugs!!! I love how Emma Bridegwater create designs that are traditional with a twist. I spend several minutes every week on their website, daydreaming... It would look so beautiful on my future kitchen shelves...
Speaking of, did you know that Sarah, from Modern Country Style, is having an "Emma Bridgewater giveaway"? Really I shouldn't tell you, but go & visit her blog if you love what you see here:
