  1. Wow Lory, it’s like a French fairy-tale! Your photos are just beautiful, I’m dreaming of the South of France.

    1. Thanks Sally! Each town we visited in the region had so much to offer… 🙂

  2. Hi Lory,

    So nice to meet you!

    Your photos of Mougins are magnifique!! I literally feel like I’m there, as your images are grand and detailed! Such stunning, yet simple, architecture, and although very French, it could easily one of many quaint, hilltop villages of Greece! I love the look of ivy clad, ochre facades, so fresh and revitalizing, and romantic!

    Have already taken the liberty of showing myself around your gorgeous home, and stopped to smell the peonies – one of my treasured favourites, and one that doesn’t thrive in the Med, so your beautiful bouquet was extra special.

    Thanks for stopping by Poppy View and hope to see you again soon!

    Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Poppy,

      Thank you so much for your delightful comment! I suspect we’ll be enjoying each other’s posts quite a bit in the future… 🙂 Happy weekend to you too!!

  3. Absolutely delightful French village!!! I would have been in heaven strolling around that town. So. Much. Charm.
    Thank you so much for stopping by and introducing yourself. I need to check out more of your blog now.

    1. Thank you Mary Alice! Enjoy!! And we visited many other towns on that visit, so there’s a lot more coming… 😉

  4. Oh, I tried to get to every town on the Riviera I could: Biot, Menton, Vence … but I missed Mougins. Now I’m really sorry – It looks stunning! One more reason to come back.

    1. Yes, I agree. So many great towns. Always a reason to return… 🙂 Thanks for enjoying the pics!

    Dear Lory, Thanks so much for coming by and taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate every one of them.
    Your website is beautiful! And this post is stunning . . . Your photos would make a beautiful gallery wall. I love ‘story-telling’ photos!
    I’m looking forward to taking a peek around.
    Have a great week,
    Suzanne

    1. Thank you so much Suzanne!! I, too, appreciate you taking the time to stop by and comment… 🙂 Enjoy looking around!!

  6. Oh the colors! Each of your photos would be a magnificent painting!

    1. Thanks for the visit and the comment Jenna! I’ve actually thought about doing some painting work from them. Maybe, we’ll see… 🙂

  7. Wonderful photos. I have not been to southern France only the Normandy area and Paris. Maybe the south next time.

  8. Hi Lory,

    I can see we are like-minded about shutters and la belle France. Mougins is one of my favorite spots. So picturesque.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    1. We are indeed. Glad you took the time to take a peak. Thank you!! Btw, didn’t have time earlier, but definitely pinning some of those pics… 🙂

  9. Beautiful! I am so jealous! Ha! No those are great photos of a wonderful place! Thanks for sharing!

  10. Question for you: how do you get your furniture home from Europe?

    1. Hi Joyce! I usually just buy smalls in Europe that I can carry home (lighting, vases, silver pieces, etc), but you can pay for shipping if you want. For furniture pieces, I usually go to antique stores in the US that I know carry European furniture. Since they buy a lot, they can fill a full container and ship much cheaper than if I bought one piece from Europe myself.

  11. What a feast for the eyes first thing this morning, although the French pastries have left my mouth watering! Thank you for sharing. I’ve been reading novels set in Provence and these pictures are the perfect backdrop. Merci, Lory!

    1. Ah, yes, I share that pleasure! If you have any novels you can recommend, I’d love to know… 🙂 In any case, glad the post made you smile this morning!!
