Fresh from Coin Perdu


I'm not sure exactly which month this card was scheduled for - in between Ronelle going through a hectic time, and it sitting unannounced in my local post office - at last I got a notice that this envelope was 'still' waiting to be collected. Addressed to Mme, I knew who it would be from and was as excited as a child to see the brown envelope and the familiar free, exuberant style of the sketch on the front. Inside, it was Christmas come early with another joyous sketch of the old 1840 outside bread oven at Coin Perdu, Ronelle's private paradise, which will one day be converted into her atelier - and the treats hinted at by previous lucky postcard-from-Ronelle recipients - what a breath of warm, freshly baked tourte et pain from France.

How wonderful. I agree, Cathy, Ronelle's work is so full of flavor
that I can imagine the smell of fresh baked bread, too.

glorious! What about a book Ronelle of paintings done as Coin Perdu has been/continues to be renovated?

Bridget Hunter said...

That would be a wonderful book Vivien - with Ronelle's lyrical paintings and word pictures and a few recipes too. Great card.

I think it just sings with Coin Perdu! I can also smell the bread and goodies she is preparing as we explore all this secret hideaway has to offer. How fun it has been each month to see something new Ronelle has been working on or cooking. I would love to see this as a book too!

I don't know what I envy most, Ronelle's beautiful loose watercolour style or her outdoor oven!
And another vote for the book.

I think Vivien's encouragement for a book is a splendid idea, too, Ronelle.

The post and the postcard are so welcoming and warming and comforting. I can smell the fresh baked bread too.

I'd love to see a book of paintings of rustic France, renovation and Ronelle's food. I'd buy it!

This painting is quite delightful - and the choice of colours means you know it's definitely Autumn and probably November!

Wonderful postcard and it looks like a piece of art painting. Fresh baked bread waiting and wanting.
