NO! NO! NANNETTE!

FRENCH PROVERB/HUMOR?

Pour de`fendre une cause une avocat met sa robe 
La femme......l 'enle`ve
 My best guess at this translation....

 " To defend a cause , a lawyer puts on a dress.
 A woman removes it !"

CAN ANYONE PROVIDE A MORE ACCURATE TRANSLATION?
I always thought this was so funny!
Probably very true, tho, I wouldn't know!
 Beautiful gold trimmed scalloped edge
Lovely purple and red stylized flower

Great fun for that Frenchy kitchen
or just GREAT FUN!!

AT OUR ETSY STORE



Thanks for visiting, I love your comments.
Blessings, Ginger

I am also glad your back to it. Missed you

you can go to google translate and see if it can tell you what your plate says.

I was watching American Idol last night and the first show was filmed in Savannah Georgia down on the river front. I reconized a few things they showed , like the brick streets and the hotel down there where you walk through a tunnel like

Dearest Ginger,

Great French quote and perfect for a lawyer to use in his office!
'To defend a cause, a lawyer puts on his robe, The woman... removes it'
Nice moral of the story, indeed for defending a cause we women can easily seduce our partner!
Have a great day and stay spunky!

Love to you,

Mariette

I think it means a judge puts his (judicial) robe on to fight for something but a woman removes it and fights for whatever cause with her womanly charms. And is usually the victor, n'est pas? :-) xo

Well, Ginger, my son is home tonight, who took like years of Middle School and High School French (but I wouldn't put any big weight with that! LOL!)and I just yelled the words into him (with my very poor French accent of reading French) and he said: "It's something like, I pledge myself to the kingdom and the queen, long live the cause..."
But I think YOUR explanation is much more fun and(no offense to my son's french), much more accurate! LOL!
Best,
Gloria

Very cute plate, Ginger. This is what Google Translate says: "For a cause one lawyer puts her dress
The woman ...... the ENTo `ve". I have no idea what the last part of the phrase means!

My own French is so rusty that I will have to trust you with the translation. It does make sense, oui??
