Back from my Holiday!!


I am back from my two week holiday in the South of France.  This year we stayed in a small town in the Camargue called Ste Maries de la Mer.  It is such a beautiful place that I thought I would share a few photographs with you.



The amazing Roman amphitheater in Nimes, what an incredible building and still used after all these years. 


The ancient Roman temple called Maison Carrée (literally "Square House," named before there was a word for rectangle). The temple rivals Rome's Pantheon as the most complete and beautiful building surviving from the Roman Times


The food was amazing.


In Arles we walked the Vincent Van Gogh trail, here is the hospital garden, the flowers were stunning.


I couldn't resist taking a photograph of this house in Ste Maries, such a beautiful garden!

I have been back for a few days now but unfortunately can't craft at the moment, I have been helping my daughter move some furniture in her classroom and have injured my hand.  Not sure what I have done but its swollen, very sore and I can't grip anything, even typing is painful.  I am still hoping to catch up with a few blogs this week and lets hope my hand heals quickly!!!
