Christmas stock....

{image from here}

I simply could not resist posting a photo, aren't they cute? I adore them but I am one of those people that cannot get enough of Christmas. It is my favourite time of the year and I love having a cold Christmas after having many hot ones downunder.

These fabulous decorations are now available in the Fabulously French online shop along with many other decorations for Noel.

A bientot,

    Country hugs, Sherry

  2. I agree...i`ts also my favourite time of year!!

  3. My favorite time of year as well. Actually I think the time leading up to its is better than the actual day. Bad me - I already put my wreath on the front door, I just couldn;t wait!

  4. love it too,
    great gold check ball ornaments!

  5. Very cute decs.... Agree totally about 'hot' Christmasses (if thats how you spell it!) had my first Christmas in Oz last year - felt TOTALLY not right - Christmas should be cold but am going back to Melbourne for another 'hot' Christmas this year! ........ xx

  6. I am a huge fan of Christmas too...and cannot ever see enough decorations, xv.

  7. i'm absolutely with you here, ff! this picture is gorgeous. x

  10. And I shall invite you down for Xmas drinkies and to admire the handmade Christmas decorations I have been collecting from around the world for more than 15 years. Even I lavish decorations on the world for Xmas. Splendid photo! Can't wait to see your shop you busy elf!! Love

  11. Hi Leeann,

    I love Christmas too, but I often think how much nicer it must be to have snow and the cold weather over there.
    I love the decorations.


  12. Such lovely decorations for "the most wonderful time of the year." I love it sooo much. Hugs, Cindy S.

  13. I love Christmas too - Somehow it's still nice down under to get that Winter feel with the tree and candles. I will be going to town at our house very soon, but not too soon.
    Have a lovely week.

  14. I know how you feel. I have been really wishing I could start getting my Christmas out already. Alas I will wait till the last week of November. I always have a large Christmas open house to kick off the season on the first Tuesday of December. There are always around 75 or so people that come and then it is a whirlwind of parties in my home and others all the way till Christmas. I love it!

  15. I love those darling wee santas, especially the one in the aeroplane. Great to read the comments and realise there are others as mad about Christmas as I am. Lovely to get your comment on my post.

  16. LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas! :) So glad I stumbled across your blog. I adore it!

    By the way, there is a London expat getting ready to throw a virtual English Christmas Tea Party. I'm most certain you would love it. You can visit here to read about it and sign up to attend:

  17. France may be cooler for you, Leeann, but we've got cold Christmas here in Canada! Love those Santa ornaments!

French food Friday...Honey Lavender Icecream

I first tried this in Provence and loved the combination of the lavender and the honey.

For those of you that have seen the movie it's complicated you will recall that Merryl Streep made it for Steve Martin and it really looked great.

By using honey as opposed to sugar you end up with icecream that is deliciously creamy and the smoothest ice cream you've ever tasted.

Be warned, though - there is a caveat...this ice cream will not freeze as well as homemade ice cream usually does. For those of you who like your ice cream hard freeze the ice cream overnight to make it scoopable, instead of the standard two to three hours after churning


1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup dried lavender
4 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream


1. Bring the milk, cream, honey, and lavender to a gentle boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

2. Remove from the heat and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and let cool a bit.

3.In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg yolks, then gradually add som…

a good idea..

Bonjour from a sunny but chilly SW France,

Hope that you had a nice weekend. We spent yesterday afternoon at a furniture auction but I will tell you more about that later in the week.

Last weekend we bought a lot of wine cases as we thought that they would make good storage, as shown in the photo above.

I particularly liked the idea of making a set of drawers with them or perhaps even a serving tray like this.

We have quite a few boxes and wine box ends so any ideas that you have would be gratefully received...
Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

French Food Friday.....

This week we are taking a break from the skinny theme, and indulging in some healthy pears with some also very healthy chocolate....

About Poires Belle Hélène

This classic French recipe were invented Paris in the 19th century and were named after an opera by Offenbach. What a romantic introduction for this French dessert par excellence, a true classic, found in at least half of the restaurants of the Hexagone. It only takes a few minutes to assemble this dish if you use ready-made ingredients; it is actually not much longer to prepare half of them from scratch (the poached pears and the melted chocolate). You can even make crème Chantilly and toasted flaked almonds for a deluxe version on very special occasions.

About Poires William liqueur

A pear flavoured liqueur. Liqueur is a class of spirit that is usually sweet and often served after dinner. It is produced by either mixing or redistilling spirits with natural ingredients such as fruits, plants, flowers, or chocolate. Sugar must be at…
