Well, actually, I am telling fibs, but this lovely witch standing outside a shop was a great attention getter and I was certainly bewitched!
It was while I was cycling through Sancerre in France, that I came upon this most delightful shopfront in Place du Puits Saint-Jean. I only had a few minutes to snap a few photos as we passed by. With more time available, I would have certainly stopped to enjoy the contents of what looked like a fascinating shop.
The sign around the witch’s neck says:
“Je m’appelle Marie Christine et mes soeurs dans la boutique recherchent un maison qui a besoin de Bonheur”
“My name is Marie Christine and my sisters in the shop are looking for a home which has need of happiness”
So if you are in need of happiness, just see Marie Christine or one of her sisters!
Sancerre is a very picturesque town and has lots of lovely cobbled lanes to explore. It is situated atop a hill overlooking the Loire River. Terrific views of the surrounding landscape can be seen from the top of the Tower of Fiefs. I have posted photos of this beautiful area on two posts: La Tour de Fiefs (The Tower of Fiefs) and Wines and vines (Sancerre).
