“Buy, buy says the sign in the shop window; Why, why says the junk in the yard.”
Cee has given us a fun opportunity this week with her
“Signs” challenge. I’ve chosen to share some of the fun signs my husband and I encountered in our exploration of beautiful Provence, France.
“If it doesn’t taste good, it doesn’t go on the menu.”
Somehow, most of what I captured had to do with food or wine – what a surprise–NOT! Is it because the French are more focused on les choses gastronomique, or because we are?! Probably both. Here then, a few of my favorite food and wine signs from Provence, the land of food and wine. First, taking full advantage of real estate:
“Language is wine upon the lips.”
And then, awaiting the opening of the local bakery:
“A jug of wine, a loaf of bread, and thou.”
Next, a nod to the French esprit de corps:
And, the perfect accompaniment to good food and wine – some lovely music 🙂
“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
Finally, from an ancient, beautifully preserved church, a “sign” that the French rejoice in the power of prayer through their love of music.
With appreciation to my followers for tolerating the frequency of my posts this week, I’m “signing” off on this one. My thanks to Cee for the fun challenge. (Check out some other “signs” entries here).
