one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
Villages near to Menton: Gorbio
Jilly am I right in thinking that you purposefully added a second smaller photo to each of your two last posts ??? LOL you cheeky girl! You don't like to be told what to do, do you? Aren't we sisters in crime? I love you for this...
I'm not really into cats but I loved your charcuterie post. Yes wild boar hunters are indeed out there in the Luberon range too. Some of these wild boars are only wild by imagination, they are bred in farms and let loose in the hills at the beginning of the summer to be hunted down in autumn...
Nathaliethe answer to the first is ABSOLUTELY!Second - I didn't know the boars were set free just to be shot in autumn. I believe boars and pigs have been bred together (purposely or not?) to produce bigger litters.
aha, I knew I was right!Love it!(thanks for correcting on the word purposely, I knew it was wrong when I typed it but couldn't find the right alternative)
What an incredible skill to have.
I would love to be able to pick up one of those beautiful bowls and feel its texture. It's too bad the woodturner himself is dressed like an American farmer! I took my first trip to France in April, and your blogs are making me really want to go again.
I need one of those beautiful bowls! Olive wood is such a lovely wood. I have a small Bible and the cover is olive wood. I love the color. And the craftsman does look like an American farmer. I expect him to throw his leg over his John Deere tractor and ride off into the French countryside!HA
Not an American farmer: you can read on his cap"Nice Matin"which is the Côte d'Azur newspaper
I've watched these craftsmen (craftspeople, altho I've seen a female working on wood) and admire their skills. I'm glad that you included all the sawdust in the photo. Does olive wood have a unique odor, I wonder?
I don't know if olive wood has an odor but I think it's a very hard and dense wood, not very easy to work...I wish you a good week end, Jilly!
j'adore regarder les artisans du bois, c'est fabuleux ce qu'ils font avec leurs mains.
