Epoisses, France visit on an old (1970's) diesel train

Yesterday we went on our annual outing on one of several old diesel trains that have been refurbished on a little used train line that has this year been extended to include Epoisses. Although we have often driven through the town of Epoisses we have never stopped to take a look around. this time we had about 1.5 hours between arriving and leaving so we saw enough to want to go again. This is just a collage to give you a flavour of the place and I just loved the artistry of the faces in various nooks and crannies. We left with, ofcourse, Epoisse cheese, smoked ham, filet mignon fume, bread and an Epoisse tart, all gorgeous.

A little bit of craft going on.

Well, once again I have been busy doing a few items for what is called a "Vide Grenier" here in France. It is much like the car boot sale in the UK but you can't do it from the car boot you have to set up a table and leave the car parked somewhere else. This makes for a bit of a scramble early in the morning when setting up but apart from that it is usually a very pleasant day as long as the weather remains decent!

I will be selling unwanted items as well as some of the following plaques with sayings on them. All in ASCP and waxed.

Live well, Laugh often, Love much.

Also gave a new life to a small wall cupboard in ASCP Cream, it was an orangey pine colour and looked great in it's new paint with a light distressing.

I am still working on a large kitchen larder cupboard also in cream it's had a first coat but as I like to sand between coats (not necessary but I like the feel of a smooth finish) I will need to empty it and do that outside. So it will have to wait for now.
