A french cafe and croissant




You can imagine how big my grin was when I received this wonderful envelope in the post..it had 'to Liz' written all over it and inside a beautiful card from Ronelle!

She describes her visits for cafe and croissant at her favourite brasserie 'les voyageurs'
"We catch up and share with slow tempo in the days activities that await us, we talk about the weather, always very important of course; we wonder what Sarkozy will be up to next and we stand together in showing our dismay about the rising gas prices! We might then drop in at the fresh market for our veggies and we'll say our goodbyes loudly and cheerfully, invigorated by caffeine and good relationships."
I love that last line! Thanks Ronelle - I love my card and package SOOO much!!!

I can just smell the caffeine - its a real story-telling postcard. And i love Ronelle's lyrical linework in all she does.

Ohhh, it's the promise that all France has to offer. It's bursting with happiness and so distinctively, beautifully Ronelle.
