Does it sound better in French?

I can see my pasture from way up here!
One of my dear friends gave me this silly plaque some time ago. She told me it used to hang outside the farmhouse of her mother-in-law. She thought I could do something with it. Hmmm. I showed it to my husband. He tilted his head and furrowed his brow. "It doesn't look very Confectionique," he said rather matter of factly. 

In French "One nice person and one old goat lives here" translates roughly to: "Une gentille personne et une vieille chèvre vit ici". I do think the French version sounds rather lovely. And, the old chèvre does look kinda cute hanging out at the top of the Eiffel Tower on my craftroom door. By the way, this isn't too far fetched as I can personally attest to the fact that many an old, goatee-wearing chèvre have found their way to the top of Gustave Eiffel's masterpiece. 

Sparkles and new hat added....

Well, be as it may, this old chèvre makes me chuckle. The googly eyes and fuzz-ball hair are even more ridiculous in person. So, if you want a bit of vintage Midwest humor, come visit him at our Red Market beginning on Thursday, February 9th. He may not find his final resting place on the top of some grand monument, but you might just like him hanging around someplace in your neck of the woods. 

Au Revior,
