Almost didn't buy this...

Six years ago my friend Kirsten and I went to France. I have had the good fortune to visit many European countries, but hadn’t been any further into France than Strasbourg (northwest bordering Germany) until this trip. In the past my travel in Europe was primarily by train. On this trip we rented a car and drove everywhere...the roads in France are phenomenal and the countryside as scenic as it appears in pics. I did struggle with the food and the language. If you ever drive in Europe please know that the passing lane is exactly that…a passing lane…you only use it to pass…not like the US where it has become a driving lane. In Europe if you are in the passing lane any longer than it takes to get a few inches in front of the car you want to pass, you had better get over, as you will hear about it from the car behind you.

I can't remember what city we were in when I saw this 'tablecloth'. I actually waffled on buying it due to the price…which of course I can’t remember how much it cost. What was I thinking? This is perfect for my home...the blue is delicious looking and its delicate look adds softness to my dining room. Every time I look at it I think of Kirsten and France. Oh how I would have regretted it if I had come home without it.
