Less is more.

The mayors wife has been at it again. This time the telephone box at the crossroads has received her very special seasonal decorating skills . Four small boxes wrapped in red paper suddenly dangling from branches around it . In our three years here we've never seen anyone use this phone box . It is literally the phone box in the middle of nowhere.  The end result quite eerie.

'' Perhaps she has a decorating budget " I observe as we drive by. ' Must be a very small one ' comes the reply.

Christmas glamour France profonde style.

  2. Very funny.

    Has anyone tested the phone to see if it really works?

  3. I suppose she thought that 'boxes' and 'telephone box' somehow went together....???

  4. Is she surreptitiously disposing of her unwanted christmas decorations from home? A little bit here and there, no one will notice...

  5. At least she made the effort...the mayor's wife has decorating skills that Martha Stewart could only dream about.
    Can't imagine the purpose of the phonebox in the middle of nowhere. I too am wondering if it actually works.
    Deepest France profonde...love it.

  7. Madame Mayor is simply a minimalist.

  8. Minimalistic decorating takes over France profonde!! I like it!

  9. An emergency call to the Beautiful Byways Committee is in order. Or do they only deal with flowers?
    Better nothing than something so thoughtlessly done. Horrible!

  10. I imagine her doing this scattershot decorating in the dead of night, by the light of a sickle moon.

  11. Maybe it was not Madame Mayor, maybe Dr. Who visits deepest France profonde and can only carry limited decorations during his travels.

  12. Perhaps she's decorationally challenged! :P

  13. This makes me think of the fated phone box in the movie "Waking Ned Devine" taking the village grouch with it.
