I was not sure what I wanted to do with my
Altered Book on France, but after spending a little time
thinking about it, I have decided.
Because, I have dreamed of visiting this wonderful country
and it’s infamous “City of Lights”
since my childhood, I have decided that my book will
reflect all the wonderful things that draw me to France,
and the things that I want to learn about this part of the world.
So, as I take my journey, I plan on learning about all the places,
people, food, celebrations, history, areas . . . etc.
If it interests me . . . it will be in my book.
I hope that you will journey with me.
We will explore and hopefully have a marvelous adventure.
I know that at the end of my journey I will have a much better knowledge
and appreciation for this beautiful country.
Have you ever thought about what it would be like to actually own a home there.
I have a love for checking out real estate,
so part of my book will include properties that I find on the internet:)
Look at how beautiful this little country cottage is . . .
the price is sweet, too.
And look at this one . . .
it is tiny . . . one small room downstairs with a kitchen along one wall of it's sitting room.
Plus a small water closet (it didn't show a photo of the W/C but I think it was what we call a half bath...if that)
So you would have to add on to the bathroom, or take sponge baths in the kitchen (maybe?), but hey, you're in France.
"When in France do as the French-women, right!"
Up-stairs was a small bedroom . . .hey, the price is . . .$31,865.
One of my favorite French women is
undoubtedly the lovely Coco Chanel .
Her life is so inspiring . . .
a true Rags to Riches story.
A woman that was not afraid of hard work,
and who never forgot her meager beginnings.
Well, this is my first installment,
I hope that you enjoyed it and that you picked up a little more
knowledge than when you started reading.
I'm excited, because I love learning
and this will not only be an artful adventure for me,
but also, a learning experience.
If you are following along on my adventure,
please leave a comment.
I read every single one.
