Spooky Scenes Found in Sarlat & Chartres, France - 2009

`
We've just returned, so I'm a bit tired ... to say the least!
But, here are some appropriately "spooky" pictures that I took in France these past few weeks.

"Spooky Scenes Found in Sarlat & Chartres, France."
October, 2009.

I'll be back tomorrow with more "Halloweeny" sort of images that I found in France - though not much, since Halloween isn't really all that celebrated in France (same as in the Netherlands ... alas :( *sniffle* ).
Come Sunday, I'll be able to show you some more pics of our trip and some of the drawings/watercolors I did while away. For now though, I have the "Scary HUGE Washload Monster" to contend with ... eek! However, I'm leaving all the real spiderwebs I'm seeing around the house - good for the Halloween atmosphere, heh heh. Sacha obviously missed the spiders creating these webs. ;)

Tot ziens,
Judy

Glad to have you back and connected!! I love the floating white dress. The black cat makes me sad, not spooked. Our black cat was hit by a car a week ago. Hugs....!
