Dernière ligne droite pour l'ALPHABET CLUB auquel j'ai participé depuis août 2015 avec beaucoup de plaisir. En léger décalage avec les autres participantes, j'ai repris le cours du dictionnaire en août dernier avec le V. Ce matin je m'attaque au W peu généreux en français.

I took part in the ALPHABET CLUB since  August 2015  with a great pleasure but had some troubles to keep up in spring. My dictionnary is opened again, I was back with the V in August and glad to introduce you to the W, not the most generous letter in French language.

As on preview posts, I have imagined a scenario for those mensual posts
as the creators of this new event offer 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.

Well, that Was not easy, I Wish there Were more Words With a W in French!
So I'm ok for some help of foreign languages, so Welcome!  Willkommen !

W comme Wanted

As I am ALWAYS looking for something, I use to have lists of "missing stash", that can be old things bought long time ago or kept for ages "just in case it happens to be useful one day" or things I bought last week but have already be moved three times in the house to find the right place to be. I should pin to the wall an empty poster and add my list and offer me some reward.

As an example, I was searching for a lovely book about Watercolor by Danielle Donaldson (I'll show it to you an another day).

W comme  Watercolor   (Aquarelle)

Watercolor, we have had so much raindrops falling on our heads this week, why not taking some brush to make a better use of all this water.

L'aquarelle est devenue un vrai plaisir complémentaire du dessin.

Bientôt un article sur une artiste Danielle Donaldson (dès que j'aurais retrouvé son livre).

W comme wax  (cire)

I love candles, I have tried to make some "homemade" long time ago with slices of orange and others with the "ice cube" recipe (you put ice cubes and wax in an empty old milk carton to get irregular shapes).  Should do it again for next Christmas.

but no equivalent with the very special model

we discovered in  Brixlegg Austria

Bougies droites, rondes, flottantes, faites maison, cierges, elles apportent lumière et chaleur dans la maison, les plus jolies étant fabriquées à Brixlegg dans le Tirol.

W comme  Waouh

That's one of favourite words of my grand daughter, who is 14 months old and is always enthusiastic discovering new things. And at this age she is always discovering new things. I envy her.

W comme  www.

An endless space where find more ideas that I could do in a life,  new so useful tutos, new blogs and new friends. For me who is old enough to have known typing invoices with six paper sheets (with three onion skin paper, one white, one green and one rose), waiting for the phone booth to call my family, black and white TV and vinyls, cutting pages to read a book, those 30 last years have been so amazing : waouh, waouh, waouh!

W  comme  double V   in French  and   double U  in English!
En revanche l'alphabet italien ne contient pas de W, utilisé seulement dans les noms étrangers mais sa représentation signifie "evviva"   Hourrah!

W  comme

Good memories of an old funny TV show.

dans la cuisine, in the kitchen

sorry, désolée,  no wasabi or Worcestershire sauce in my cupboards.

  dans le jardin, in the garden

Weigelia rouge

sur la platine vinyl

les Wings
Cafe on the left bank...

When I was young, I loved a lot the Western music

dans mes souvenirs de voyage,  in my travel souvenirs

W comme Washington

last call for letter X next first Saturday in October

  1. Great post! Quite Wonderful, even if France does not use the W very much. Except for your little grand-daughter who seems determined to bring it into fashion.
    Those candles are gorgeous.

  2. Waouh, tu as trouvé beaucoup pour cette lettre. Le meilleur est waouh, lol. Moi aussi, j'ai toujours aimé la musique western, jusqu'a aujourd'hui.
