Merci Diane!

I think the south of France must have cornered the market on rustic wood and stone. Gorgeous shot.

I hope I am not repeating myself but we have a cute little "Frenchie" cafe here in Birmingham called Chez Lulu! :)

The texture is divine as is that rich deep blue! Your banner is exquisite. This must be "blue week"... bon weekend!

I went to Chez Loulou in Birmingham with Virginia last summer and we even mentioned you... I'll find a photo that I snapped!

Bises,

I think you're right!
I didn't know about the café in Birmingham, so you aren't repeating yourself. :) Is it a good place?

Sam
Thank you! That is very nice to hear.

Murissa
It's interesting, because that wood is actually dark brown, but the evening light must have added an extra layer of color. It really does look deep blue.

Sarah
Thank you and thanks for stopping by to comment!

Merci! The header photo is one of my favorite houses in the area. I love that shade of periwinkle blue.

Genie
I would love to see the photo of Chez Loulou in Birmingham, so please let me know if you find it.
Glad you're enjoying my blue as much as I enjoyed yours. :)

I saw that orange stone against the wood on one of the village houses while we were having drinks in our friend's garden the other night and immediately grabbed my camera. One of the friends asked what I was doing and when I told him that I loved the color and texture contrast he looked at me like I was very strange. lol

Merci Pierre!

That is a gorgeous photo!

Emm said...

Loulou, That periwinkle is almost exactly the shade of a pair of long-departed :sigh: Ferragamos. :-)
