To get you in the mood...

 

Pour vous mettre dans l'ambiance...

 

 

Can you believe we had the first snow fall of the year just for the first weekend of Advent? I thought  I was done with snow, the house being so close to the sea, but no such luck! Don't get me wrong, I love snow as far as the scenery is concerned, but I still have to drive to work tomorrow morning, which isn't fun as nothing is done around here, snow being so rare. I mean, everywhere else they would have snowploughs at work, salt or sand on the roads. Well, not here! They just put warning sign everywhere saying "no salt on the road"!!! (I swear, I'm not making it up).

 

Nous avons eu nos premiers flocons pour le premier weekend de l'Avent, soit trois semaines plutôt que l'an dernier. Moi qui pensais en avoir fini avec la neige en m'installant au bord de la mer, c'est raté! La neige, j'adore pour le décor, mais quand il faut prendre la voiture à sept heures du matin, c'est tout de suite beaucoup moins drôle! Surtout qu'ici, on n'est pas équipé pour ça: pas de chasse-neige en vue, par contre depuis quelques jours, des tonnes de petits pannaux  "pas de salage" décorent les routes. Bref, on nous prévient que l'on prend la route à nos risques et périls!!!

 

I thought that some painting would be a nice activity for that cold weekend... And I remembered that plain blackboard I bought on sale with my Mom a few weeks ago...

 

Du coup, ressortir les pinceaux a semblé une saine activité et il était temps que je fasse un sort à ce tableau noir acheté en soldes avec ma Maman.

I know, it doesn't show on the picture, but the frame was natural pine (not good quality, though).

 

I had wanted a "Menu" blackboard for some time, but they were all very expensive, even second-hand, and also, I always found their design too "heavy", meaning very big painted vegetables or big cats... I couldn't find "the one". So I made my own (wish it was as easy with men!)

 

Je cherchais depuis quelques temps un tableau noir "Menu", mais je ne toruvais jamais ce que je voulais au prix que je voulais y mettre. Je les trouvais tous trop chargés, niveau déco. Du coup, je me suis lancée.

I wish I could show how it looks like in the dining room, but since the dining room redo is scheduled for next summer, it's no use!

 

Il trouvera plus tard sa place dans la salle à manger (début des transformations cet été pour cette pièce).

 

 

Have a nice week!

PS. If you remember my last garden roses that I tried to save, here's how they looked like this morning when I woke up... I thought it was actually prettier this way!

 

Si vous vous rappelez de ma tentative de sauvetage des dernières roses du jardin, voilà ce à quoi elles ressembaient ce matin au réveil... Eh bien, je trouve qu'elles ont fané très élégamment....

Thanks for your comment. The board is made of wood, not very thick, though. Thanks for organising such wonderful parties... I love wandering around the other links!
