loving all things French & Festivalish
A month ago (excuse the tardiness) we were in Brisbane & went to their French Festival (tipped off by Thea from Thea&Sami screen printer extraordinaire). It was fantastic . . . c'est magnifique!!
Brisbane suffered rather chilly Winter school holidays so this is not how their glorious warm & sunny skyline normally looks, even in Winter, alas, check out the French flags & HUGE crowds.
While in the queue for crepes, i sent the children around with the camera to take some snaps, so this is their view of the stilt walkers, called the Baguettes or something quaint.
My darling patient husband queued up for 90 minutes to provide our family with delicious crepes. I took the children to play at South Bank, it was spitting rain but by GOD we were having crepes!! Look at these banana deliciousness. Note to self: get rich quick scheme, make crepes & charge a fortune for them at a French festival!!
Ok so some quiche & pies were purchased too. Lucky our children are into sharing, by way of passing around a quiche or pie & each taking a bite - i referred to it as 'a tasting plate'.
Using this Frenchy inspiration to make good use of my Frenchy stationery.
Playing around with new tags & loving the red, white & blue!!
This is a bit orange, sorry for quick snaps at night on the kitchen counter!!
Love a good international festival, many macarons were consumed & it was great fun. Shall mark it for the calendar next year, with my
complimentary military holiday home husband's bachelor pad in Brisbane. Love Posie
