I completed the refinishing of the magic wardrobe. Appleshoe, one of my readers, pointed out how nice it looked cleaned up, but not painted. I realized I liked it that way, too. So I scrubbed and sanded it some more, until it was as fresh and smooth as I could get it, and
then I rubbed it with beeswax furniture polish.
I love the pretty color and soft sheen. It smells wonderfully of honey.
I painted the shelves sky blue, and finally put away my son's clothes, which have been sitting on his desktop these last six weeks. I'm already thinking of refinishing another piece of furniture, an old chest which someone pickled.

A fruitière is a fromagerie, a place where cheese is made.
That's right, so the milker can balance on a hillside, like this boy is doing.
These people were getting ready to play the alpenhorn.
We saw many beautiful bells.
To make up for the cows, we got our son some Barbe à Papa. Barbe à Papa means Papa's Beard in French.
