Monday Morning Dreaming...

Bonjour mes belles,

I hope that you had a fabulous weekend. Unfortunately it rained most of the day yesterday which meant that most of the vide greniers were cancelled hence no treasure hunting for us.

Yesterday I stumbled across this gorgeous apartment which is for sale in Isle sur la Sorgue which is the 2nd best place to hunt for antiques outside of Paris.

It even has an outdoor area, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine after a hard day's treasure hunting.....

Love, love the bedroom area and wish that mine looked as tidy as this today, perhaps mine would if I removed the piles of interior decoration magazines that appear to be growing by the day.

It would make the perfect weekend pad for us but at 860,000 euros, it is out of our price range but a girl can dream can't she?

If you want to see more photos of the apartment plus lots of other lovely properties in the Provence area, click here

Alas that it is dreaming over for today and it is back to work for me.

je vous souhaite une semaine fabuleuse...Leeann x

  2. That pool is absolutely delicious! And I know exactly what you mean about the bedroom "magazine takeover" - if only I could have ANY room in my house look as "pulled together" as that bedroom does! Wonderful post :)

  3. What a Great Post! Everything about that apartment looks so relaxing and stylish. I love the dining room area.

  4. I would happily wake up in that lovely bedroom and sit in the very serene outdoor space - all so neat and tidy!

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…
