Claude Monet was so far ahead of his time. I have always found his use of colour inspirational and his gardens in Giverny are a must see experience if you go to France. Monet's house
The kitchen...you can't see them, but there are
dozens of copper pots hanging, just ready for making
preserves, terrines and all sorts of yummy french country
When I went to Monet's house I bought his cook book, it has all
his favourite recipes from his life in Giverny.
Friends and I had a Claude Monet dinner party. We all
prepared a dish from his book, decorated the table in gorgeous
flowers and lots of mismatched french crockery and drank french wine.
After dinner we got the paints out and did our best impressions
of french impressionism!
A great evening! lots of fun, creative..and best of all...lots
of food!! Highly recommend it!
No wonder he was inspired to paint!!! His fabulous
gardens and water lilies outside....and these amazing
rooms inside.....Now where are my canvases and easel again??
Love old trunks for stacking, coffee tables and storing all your old baby keepsakes.
On my wish list....authentic vintage Louis Vuitton!!
Travel was once so grand...high tea on the main
deck, dinner dances and lulled to sleep with the
rolling waves. A tad different to the travel "experience" now don't you think??
