Music evening at Maison de Maitre


Susie and Katie singing along with the Soggy Bottom Dogs on Music night, Day 5.




Jone and Sue, friends for over 30 years enjoying the music...


almost falling off the couch....this was before we all got up to dance...


The local boys put on a great show, too much fun!


Ms. Jone Hallmark's outstanding paper cuts...my favorite things...birds, mushrooms, hedgehogs!


Here's Jone! Posing with her pal, Oolie's mushroom pin...(that I coveted!) Did I tell you how much I loved meeting and being with all these wonderfully creative spirits???

Sue Dreamer and Jone kept us smiling and made gifts for us all..



The charming Rebecka from Sweden wore the coolest clothes each and every day. She is a teacher and wears her collection of vintage clothing for her students to enjoy. A fantastic photographer, she took wonderful photos of our time at Les soeurs. Check out her amazing blog: Vintage Fairy Tales.


Oolie, an incredible embroiderer , maker of enchanting pins...
