You probably know by now that I have a thing for French signage.

The older & more faded the better.

I love the hand written ones because I so love the uniquely French style cursive.

The old blue enamel signs are so quintessentially French as well.

This is the kind of sign you can love & want to disobey at the same time. Just kidding...sort of.....who wouldn't want to sneak into the grounds of this abandoned chateaux.

I believe I'ver posted a photo of this sign before but I couldn't help another shot. It's one of my favorites.

I wasn't sure what this place really was but loved the old sign anyway.

I also love the discreet signs framed & placed on doors of local B&B's.

Sometimes there is really no need for a sign because it is perfectly clear what is for sale.

These signs represent just some of the many details that make up 
for me.


  1. I am a lover of signs too and you posted some beautiful ones.

  2. You've found some beautiful, beautiful signs but I have a feeling you find the beauty in ordinary things wherever you go. Clearly you are enjoying your summer in France!

  3. These are all beautiful photos. I do like their signs and how they will just frame something. The French cursive is something to envy.

  4. Sally, These little snippets of France make me fall in love with it all over again. Your photographer's eye shows me things that I'd never notice. Thanks for playing along with Dreaming of France. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

  5. I so looking forward to your posts. They make me daydream about France so much! Thanks and have a beautiful day.

  6. I mean: 'I look forward to your posts" :) xoxo

  7. I love each and every one of these, Sally. They truly reflect the France I remember and with such love and detail. Merci!
