Whimsical figures in Vensac, France

We brought our motor-home from Ireland to France on the ferry on the 21st June and within a few weeks we’d come across these attractive models which were arranged in front of the mairie (town hall) of the village of Vensac. Again we were just driving through and suddenly came across these quaint figures. The white lace was hand-crocheted and spotlessly white. I don’t know how the garments stay so clean but they looked lovely. One lady was cooking a crepe in a frypan on a stove and others were engaged in various activities. The models of plants were very creative too and most had an insect or two incorporated in their design. We visited the church here too and Vince left his lovely new birthday cap in the church as we had to make a trip back later to retrieve it.

I love that you constantly discover such neat little things in your travels. I'd be so intent on finding the "big" things in my travels that I would probably miss all these small details. I would have driven right by those figures and probably never even noticed them! Which is why I'm so happy that I have you to find these things for me and take and post photos of them! I am living my travel life vicariously through you and Vince!

Your trip sounds so nice. It is good to hear abiut all ge different places. Lace making seems to be a dying art yet there are still these places where the tradition survives. Those figures are fun and I am glad the hat was not lost.
