This is the one that I want...

As asoon as I saw this photo, it was a case of love at first sight or as the French say coup de foudre.
My walk in dressing area is far too small but I am hoping to rectify this very shortly and I am hoping to have much more space....dreams are free buy I suspect that my wardrobe expansion project may require some euros so suspect that I will not be buying as many winter clothes this season....what about you?
Do you have enough room for all your clothes and shoes?

  1. Leeann I have to agree with you, a perfect closet and dressing area.

    No, I do not have enough room, too jumbled in a small space that I cannot see everything.. I have a feeling that when I really get out all of my fall/winter, there will be some bags for donation!

    The Arts by Karena

  2. Yes! Mine is big enough. I remodeled it a couple of years ago by taking out everything, painting and replacing shelves and clothes rods in a better layout. It is decorated with art, hats hanging very high on the walls, cute purses hanging up, and pretty boxes on shelves to stash things in. I even have shoe storage in the end opposite the door. It is one of my favorite projects I've done and I saved money by doing most of the work myself. My dad helped me with some of it too.

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…

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…
