BUT… I gotta give it to the vintage decals. Who knew?

French Friday!

For this week’s installment of French Friday, I thought I’d pull a Sarah Palin and go all rogue on y’all by selecting some francophone images from SwissMiss’s blog. After all, I never specified whether the “French” in French Friday referred to the nationality or the language, right? Aren’t I tricky? Yeah, I know. But I’m going to throw in some vintage Citroën ads for good measure.
