Compiègne is a city that is about 30 minutes from where we live. We went there Saturday with my friend who was visiting for the weekend. We stopped in first at a dépôt-vente (consignment store) and found a little table to go between the bathroom and guest room doors - pictures of that will follow when we finish painting the hallway.

Then we picnicked just outside of the gardens of the château de Compiègne (no picnicking allowed inside) and went to explore the gardens.

Before heading home, we stopped by the hardware store and finally found an umbrella for our patio table (pictures of that will also come later) - so now we are all set for our summer guests, if we can just convince the sun to come out and the weather to warm up again. Right now we still have the fire going in the fireplace!

A rare photo of the two of us! Thanks, Delphine!
