A Sack For Spuds

I have no recollection of how or where we acquired this old potato sack, but it meets the terms of this week’s midweek challenge – must have a ‘K’ at the end of the word.

Outside the Notaire’s

These brass plaques can be seen outside the offices of Notaires (public notaries) all over France. However, they’re not all as aesthetically framed against a rough-cast wall as this one, in Confolens.
