About ten minutes drive from our lovely house in the woods, was the small town of Buckingham. It houses a lovely little cafe, Cafe Bourg Joie, where a local artists work is displayed. I loved it. It’s art that makes me smile and makes me happy. Sometimes, that’s all you need.

I wish I could tell you the artist’s name, or send you to her site, but I can’t. Her studio was closed throughout our entire stay – we checked every day – and her name wasn’t mentioned on the little cards below the pieces. But if you’re in Buckingham, Quebec, go to this cafe and see the work.
