Bonne année!

Bonne année!

Happy New Year………………

Hope you all had a good time?

Do you like my Christmas presents………………….I loved the mugs from Mr Busy Bee……….

And this GORGEOUS glass bowl from my from my friend Julie………………………………

I filled it with an orchid for our desk in French France…………………………………….

Just after Christmas…..

We were lucky enough to get a week away at our No1 French France………………………….

We hopped on the plane…………..the day after Boxing day………………………………….

We are getting on a treat at No1…………………………………..

With the help of our French builder Joseph……………………….

We still have a lot to do, but it’s starting to feel like home now……………..

Do you want to see more pictures?

We limewashed the floors upstairs………………………….

And the beams…………………………………..

And I finished the stairs……………………they took ages, and I wished I never started………………..

But they do look good don’t you think?

Our French friends delivered a seat and a desk for us, and we have ordered a chair for the desk…………

We found some vintage steps……………………………………

Which we painted with Annie Sloan graphite………………………………….

And work in progress on a large wicker basket………………………………………………

Joesph made us these GORGEOUS wooden shutters for the back of the house.

We did lots of painting, and read books, and drank wine………………perfect!

We also left Joseph with a garden plan……………………….

And a big list for this space……………………………………….

Exciting times for 2016!!!
