I am going to start posting pics from my trip to to Europe in April of 2007. The purpose was to take classes with Claudine Helmuth in Cortona, Italy. We spent the first week staying with Kate Murray of www.vintagecharmings.com who lives about 50 kilometers northeast of Paris. We went to Brocantes (flea markets) and spent three full days in Paris. Then to Cortona for a week, and Florence for four days and Venice for five. What a trip!!! More postings on that from time to time.
