Bon Anniversaire de Mariage!

Bon Anniversaire de Mariage!
(Happy Anniversary!)

Lovely lady playing authentic French music at the French Flea Market.
(Love her red beret!)

Last weekend was our anniversary. Since we honeymooned in Paris we try to go back to Paris for our anniversary as often as we can. Since we couldn't get to Paris this year, we did the next best thing.....we had a French style celebration in Marin County. Lucky for us... Chateau Sonoma was hosting it's 5th annual French Flea Market.

Chateau Sonoma's garden courtyard was transformed into a French style flea market. There were different vendors all selling "tres chic" French antiques and collectibles. Here's a glimpse of the market:

Vintage French suitcase calling out my name to pack my bags and get back to Paris!

Fun French enamelware! Love the tea canister!

Vintage French canvas art is currently a "hot" collectible!

Chateau Sonoma
153 West Napa St.
Sonoma, Ca 95746
(707) 935-8553

Chateau Sonoma is a French theme boutique store filled with vintage and French antiques.

Owner, Sarah Anderson travels to France several times a year to fill her store with a unique assortment of home and garden antiques. It is just off Sonoma's town square. For more information:

Another Sonoma tip:
If you visit the town square in Sonoma, I highly recommend having lunch or dinner at The Girl and The Fig restaurant. Check out their food product line, too. I love their Fig & Port Vinaigrette. I have seen their food line products at Whole Foods Market, too. For more information:

The Left Bank
Chocolate Fondue for Two!

For our French theme anniversary dinner we opted to dine at the Left Bank in Larkspur. Since we always stay and dine on the left bank in Paris the brasserie's name struck accord.

We enjoyed it's ambiance, the food and a fabulous waiter. I think we liked our dessert the best... the chocolate fondue for two!

Bon Appetit!
