Dreaming of Durfort

This return to bone chilling cold we have been experiencing here in Toronto for the past few days has made me reminiscent about my trip to southern France last July to take a jewellery workshop taught by Kate McKinnon, hosted by the lovely Gwen Gibson. The weather was so pleasant and hot the week we were there. Not uncomfortably so but the kind of warm that my body is longing for in the midst of this minus 20 degree weather, the kind of sunny, enjoyable summer heat that just envelops you and makes you feel like everything is right in the world. And in that little pocket of the Mid-Pyrenees, it certainly is!

Here are a few photos to show you what I mean:

By the way, Gwen is now blogging about her lovely French home - you can check that out here: http://gwengibson.com/blog/
