Fleur-de-Lis Heaven!


21/09/2012

Bonjour mes amis!

Okay, I admit it. My hint yesterday about today's blog was too easy.  Guess you know me too well...

We are still in Blois, France for this post, and it was fleur-de-lis heaven for me.  Let me just share why I love this country...

This is wallpaper...thanks for indulging me, Mr. Jewel, by taking the pic!

This large room got quite a treatment!  Jewel Jr. counted 3,500 Fleur-de-Lis on this ceiling!

Such adornment for the walls!

I begged Mr. Jewel to take this one!  Isn't it gorgeous?

Now Mr. Jewel made me pose for this one.  Check out the fabric!  Yup!  Fleur-de-Lis!

Ahhhhhh!  Such beauty!

Oh, and I approved the taking of this picture by Mr. Jewel.  Look what's guarding the bottom!  Mr. Jewel accused me of only wanting the picture to be taken because of the fleur-de-lis on the bottom.  Se la vie!

There are no Fleur-de-Lis on this last picture for the day.  I just wanted to let you know how we ended our visit to Blois...with a trip to a Cave!  We got to go deep into the cellar of this building and see where the wine is stored, and then up to a quaint stone tasting room where we sampled a couple wines from the region.  We took home two bottles to enjoy from our trip!



Bon week-end!

à bientôt mes amis!
Jan
