I love this colour...


{photo from here}

I have developed a love for purple, I do not know why but I am drawn to it. Love the rich colour curtains in this photo and the chandelier is fabulous......

Farrow and Ball recently released a series of new colours, one of which is a lovely purpley grey colour. I cannot wait to start using it and have a few items in my garage which I am planning on painting.

One of my new year's resolutions is to rearrange the garage as it is full of boxes which are strewn all over the place. Needless to say it is not possible to park in a car in it at present......


The garage is beckoning mes belles, so it is on that note, I will leave you.

  2. Funny you should say that: For most of my adult life I was a brown/green/orange kind of gal. This past year, for no particular reason at all, I became increasingly attracted to purple. All shades of purple. I bought new clothes, new costume jewelry. I love purple! I am glad to know I am not the only one ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  4. Have seen this color being used a lot lately and I think it us because it is just so luxurious and regal. A beautiful option to black when looking for a sophisticated look.

  6. Oh, yes, it's lovely! My favorite color is burgundy, but plum is a close second. The color of royalty. :)

  7. What a luscious color. LOVE those drapes! Gorgeous. I've always liked the pastel, lavender side of purple, but the deeper hues have grown on me!

  8. A friend of mine recently painted her exterior shutters in a new Farrow and Ball color - "Pelt". It is the deepest, richest shade of purple and really adds a gorgeous touch to her French farmhouse.

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



Ingredients:


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

Method:

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…

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…
