A new friend, Becky, an author (coincidence? I think not!), has a nifty writeup on her blog today about Etsy, and a certain necklace... Do have a look. Becky is the author of French by Heart, and you can check her book at Most interesting, for me, is that it's set in Clermont-Ferrand, which, if my schoolgirl memory serves me, is in the Massif Central and has a link to Vercingetorix, the Gaulois chief who had the temerity to say No! to the Romans.

After all the books about expats in Paris or spending A Year in Provence, this is refreshing... I mean, a South Carolinian family in Clermont-Ferrand.....

Way to go, Becky!


  1. Colette, her book sounds very interesting.
    I love the Sunflower painting..
    Sunflowers are one of my things.
    Sending you love, Nita

  2. Thank you, Colette! You're so sweet to mention my book.
    And you're right about Clermont-Ferrand. It was an amazing place to live.

    I'm still loving my fabulous necklace!

  3. All righty!!! I just went to Rebecca's site! Thanks Miss Colette! I am at the library and guess what..I am going to find her book. I sure miss popping in to see you every morning:(

  4. Going to visit her site and read her book! Sounds lovely!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
