French Finds

6.24.2012

How was your weekend? Mine? Oh, thanks for asking. Not so great. I have had no internet since 7:30 Friday morning and it is STILL out Sunday afternoon. I have only been able to talk, or rather listen, to a robot from ATT keep telling me that it is out in our area and will be back on......three different times I have been given and each time nothing, nada. So I am back at the Atlanta Bread Company mooching off their free wi fi. I have an ipad 2, but don't have a clue how to write a blog on it because it is only in html. If anyone knows how please tell me. Also we will look into a new internet provider, too. Okay enough ranting now   on to the post.

I found some more beautiful majolica plates on ebay recently from France. I purchased one and wasn't expecting it till some time in July. Well, the package arrived over a week ago. I think I got this package faster from France than some I wait on here in the states. Also when I opened the box I was surprised to find two plates in the box. Maybe she was selling them in sets of two. Anyway I love the design of these.















I got the two plates for $34. What a deal and all the way from France.

Have a super duper week!

  1. Great deal on the plates. We had AT&T and changed because of so many reasons similar to yours. Have a great week. Hopefully you will get internet service soon. Sheila

  6. I post from my iPad now and it is not as much fun...wish I had great tips for you but I'll admit that I get frustrated. I send pictures to my blog and then edit, adding narrative. I have only been able to upload five or six pictures for each posting. I think I finally asked and they gave me the address to send pictures. It included my user name for Blogger.com and my password. Example: leeann.password@blogger.com
    Sorry for your frustration~Hope things improve soon!
    BTW~love the plates, you lucky girl!

  8. I can't believe your internet is STILL out! Good grief! I would be furious. Like I said, they owe you a refund BIG time. We have Time Warner and I will say we rarely have an outage. We even had cable during our last Cat 1 hurricane. LOL
    Love your new Frenchy majolica plates. The only thing I ordered on international ebay was from Belgium. The shipping was killer, but I got a good price on the stuff. I don't even want to shop ebay France, it sounds like trouble from the word go. LOL

    Miss you! Have a great week.

  15. Beautiful plates! Isn't it funny how lost and out of the loop we feel when the internet is down? Well, maybe it isn't so funny to you right now! :-) Hope you get your problem fixed soon.

  21. Kim you have a great eye for beautiful things:) I feel your pain of the internet being down. I lost mine for a week and about pulled my hair out. I had to haul my 30 inch Mac to a WIFI to use it, so frustrating. Hope you get something working soon.

  32. We have been having trouble this evening with our internet. My husband has been on the phone with ATT for half and hour. It finally got better and I was finally able to open blogs and I read about your dilemma. Obviously ATT is having issues.

    On a better note - your plates are absolutely beautiful!
