we are home....

"Count your age by friends, not years.....
Count your life by smiles, not tears."

This quote is embroidered and hanging in Sue's bathroom. I have looked at it for years and it always makes me smile.....I think it is the perfect thing for those of us who just spent that magical week at Briancon again....and those we shared it with last year.

Fifty stairs to climb up and down several times a day - we certainly got our cardio in!
It was like Fairyland, really, leading either to the glorious meals by the pool or up to the stone barn of creativity.....more photos of that soon.

The blocks that Becky will treasure. I am sure that they will live happily in Vintage Fairy Tales.
Wish we had actually set up each picture of the puzzle to see what they were/are.
Could you do that for us, Becky?

And meeting
I am so grateful that we were able to meet her and see her world with Dean.
She is so lovely and I will be lighting my magic candle for her continued health and inspiration.

So many amazing things that we shared, along with the laughter.....and tears (!)

We missed the faces and people of last year, but have added some new, extraordinary members.
Pantry Violets will live on and on........

Thanks to Katie and Mike, Carol, Dave, Susu and Fiona for making our stay so spectacular!
