Photos from France in August. This summer, with the move and everything, we only got to spend one weekend there.

It was a very good weekend that included blackberry picking, jam making, melon eating, sleeping in absolute silence, and a visit to the brocante in Sommières.
So many treasures in the shadow of the plane trees by the river. I loved it and went home with a chair, two stools, a set of plates with a pretty pattern, a big old jam jar and a b/w agfa film expired in '92 (which I hope to use soon).

I wish you a quiet Saturday. I'm drinking tea, eating cake and cooking apples. Perfect, if it wasn't for my back pain. But it slows me down, and that's good sometimes.


  1. what a place of treasures Jana. love the stools, they look amazing, perfect to sit on them outside on a warm summer night :)

  2. oh, so jealous! that looks like a perfect brocante.

    so sorry to hear about your backpain. does yoga help at all?

  3. Un fin de semana bien aprovechado. Me gustan tus fotografías!! Saludos!!

    sorry for your back pain. i love that you find its benefits for you, but i hope you find relief from it too.
