Mlle Rouge..



Ceci n'est pas une voiture c'est une joie de vivre!

After a bit of morning drama Aimee and I eventually arrived in Subiaco for the French Festival. We weren't exactly sure where Market Square Park was but luckily Mlle Rouge aka Red below was there to point us in the right direction :) Snippets of conversation are a delight. Australian lady to elderly French gentleman sporting a fabulous beret "excuse me did you buy your beret here?" Elderly French gentleman to lady a disdainful "Non!"..end of discussion! Made me smile :)


I didn't wear a beret but like many others I did wear le striped tee shirt :)


Asterix and Obelix never looked so good from behind :) I'll show you some of the gorgeous French fashions tomorrow. Hope you are having a good weekend, happy Sunday, take care and stay safe..

  4. I don't think I could fit in that car. My legs would be hanging outside the window.

    I see ye olde Thai spammer is back.

  5. I like all of it, the costumes, especially the striped clothes, and I love that old car - it's got tons of character. I'll bet you had a grand old time!

  6. Love the little red Citroen car. I doubt I'd be able to fit into it though.
    The lady in the middle is nice too.

    Hope you had fun.

  7. That is a fine looking 2CV Citroen in red, but the eyelashes above the headlights are a bit much. While a good looking car, it is so slow as to not be safe on many contemporary roads, and it lacks safety for the occupants.

  8. Such fun that must have been, Grace. Probably 1/2 of my wardrobe is striped!

  9. The old red car is a beauty. I laughed when I read the elderly gentleman's response to the question about the beret.
    Hope you had lots of fun. Did you speak French to everyone while you were there? :)

  12. Looks like great fun. I would love to take the 2CV for a spin. As far as I know we don't have a French festival here :-(

  14. Always enjoy seeing the backs of people too, why is that? It's like such a tender shot when you see them walking away. I have one with myself and three of grandchildren my daughter took at the zoo! The striped/ black and white captures makes me want to go shoot something like it too. Silly right? No, not really. You inspire us. But best of all are the eye lashes on that adorable car!

  15. Mlle. Rouge was cute from behind...adorable once I saw her lashes. Ooh la la!

  16. Great posting!
    The red 2CV is what we used to call "Student Jaguar" in my student days.
    I like the way you put together the "striped" outfits.
    ENJOY the day and the event!

  18. Those eyelashes are so funny. Love to see the fashions you spotted. I once had a Breton sweater myself too!

  19. We call those cars "Ente", "duck", and if green you can pinch someone and make a wish.
    Those eyelashes are cute, Grace, oh-lá, looks like you had a fun day indeed :-)

  20. OH that would have been so enjoyable.

  21. How delightful, G. One thinks they did it just for YOU, our favorite Francophile :)

  22. Looks like you had a great time. Obelix looks very fit here.

  23. The Portuguese call those cars "frog's mouth". I like the lashes, very funny. So cute that people dressed up "French style".

    ReplyDelete
  24. How fun Grace! Love the conversation about the beret and the eyelashes on that red car.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes, the red car is cool!

    All the best Jan
