Le Bassecour: Mosaic Monday

Thought for the Week:
"We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential." ~ Ellen Goodman

a collage/ mosaic of pictures taken of the exterior of Le Bassecour - a french style home store, at 44 Stanley Avenue Milpark (Johannesburg) where you can get very, very lost with the amazing francophile items on sale - from furniture, to chandeliers (see pic), to mirrors, to crockery etc.etc..... 
I will be doing more posts of pictures taken within the store in due course.

Hi Gena,
I clicked to enlarge your mosaic - it's lovely. The photograph in the center is so beautifully framed by the tree branches. Lovely colors and a joy to see this! I just joined as a 'Follower'!
Happy Mosaic Monday,
