Premier samedi de juillet, notre rendez-vous avec "The Alphabet Club" et ce mois-ci avec la lettre L.

Time to update "The Alphabet Club" with the L

Please visit Chiara's blog

As on preview posts, I have imagined a scenario for those mensual posts
as the creators of this new event offers us a quite total liberty to how develop them.

My own way will go into worlds of stitching, words, drawings, designs, garden, cooking, music and travels

Evocation of  a word begining with the letter linked to DIY activities
and personal researches on what you could find in my garden, in my kitchen, on my record player (the vinyl one), in my travel souvenirs

It will be a mix of French/English maybe other languages

L  comme  Laine, wool

Le tricot a du mal à trouver sa place dans mon emploi du temps et sans l'aide précieuse de maman mes réalisations ne peuvent être très ambitieuses, juste le plaisir de tricoter ces laines nouvelles et excentriques, dommage que les prix des laines se soient envolés.

Knitting has some difficulties to found free hours in my schedule and without the precious help of my mother, mes works can't be ambitious, only the pleasure to knit those new wools for exentric scarfs. Only a regret the expensive cost of wool now.


L comme lavander

L  comme  livres   (book)

Dans la cuisine, in the kitchen

L comme légumes   (vegetables, Gemuse)

There is a lot of vegetables that I like, beyond common vegetables, salsifi, chinese artichoke, céléri and artichoke (they were on lunch menu today, my sauce recipe : mix hard-boiled egg with pickles, add oil and vinegar to get a consistency of thick cream)

Au delà des légumes courants comme les carottes, les petits pois et autres haricots,  j'aime beaucoup les salsifis, les crosnes, les artichauts.

Dédicace spéciale / Special award  to DH  for his ratatouille (sorry no pic)  -tomatoes, pepper, eggplant, zucchini, olive, laurel and garlic.

Now a shoehorn,  a good place to show some more pictures of Chenonceau castle's kitchen

 dans le jardin

lavande papillon, lupin, lavande
lysiaque, lilas, liseron

on my vinyl platine

in travel memories

A day tour in London in 1974
and an holiday week in August 1979.

Lili was a cartoon I read as teenager

I must add an "extra" for this lovely town I visited in Wales

A tire d' L  (aile)(wing)    je dis M (aime)(love)...     au mois prochain

From Love to aiMe

specially the first of the month, see you on August the 6th

  6. Très intéressante, ta lettre L. et je vois que tu tricotes aussi. Et ces oeuvres sont toutes très jolies.
    Je ne connais pas les crosnes, mais je connais et j'aime beaucoup les artichauts. Difficile à obtenir ici, malheureusement. Mais merci pour partager la recette de ta sauce pour les artichauts.
