Chartres, France

P.S.: There’s More


Posting has been all over the place lately, I know. Hopefully I’ll be getting back into some sort of routine soon. (I’ve found a new family, so that should be sooner rather than later!)

These are some of the last pictures I took before I left Chartres. Some of the little details that I absolutely adored about the house. That’s one of the things I really like: is the little things that people add (to anything, really. Houses, outfits, art.) that make them distinctly theirs. My favourites would have to be the dried hot peppers and the Banania sign. And possibly the chickens on the shelf above the fridge. Also: that’s my favourite scarf. For reasons I don’t understand, I have all these random photos of me wearing it. I think that could be a problem, but I like to think of it as one of those avant garde self portrait things that people do.

I’m here until next Friday, staying on this island and I can see this house from my bedroom window. Since it’s fall, it’s grey and overcast and raining, which I’m secretly kind of loving. (I do have pictures. I’ve just been procrastinating and haven’t uploaded them. I should win an award for how well I do that. Seriously.) I get to wear a yellow fisherman’s rain jacket and have these knee high rain boots and when I walked into Belz last night, everyone was looking at me funny because no one wears anything brighter than navy.

Things I’m Loving:

+ This list of cities to visit – (My list isn’t long enough already.)

+ This song – (I feel like it matches this tiny place very well.)

+ ALL OF THESE – (I’m pretty sure if I had an address to mail things to, I would have already bought this and this. Or else just signed up for the subscription. It’s officially on my Christmas wish list.)

+ This fascinating article – (Because learning languages just really interests me.)

    Looks like a beautiful place! Would so love to visit it, especially with the cold wind blowing here and the snow! Love the photos – especially like the tarte with raspberries!

  2. This place you’re visiting looks AMAZING!! I sure hope you’re taking lots of wonderful pictures. You may not realize this, but when you are in Nantes later this week, you are in your arriere-grand-mere’s part of the world!
