Addicted to tassels

Photo: Declercq Passementiers

I adore tassels, they are something that I cannot resist buying.

When I was living in Dubai I found a fabulous shop that had lots of really different ones and have bought a few since I have been living in France.

I recently discovered the most fabulous website Declercq Passementiers who also have a shop in Paris.
Here are some photos of tassels from their website.......

  3. Love your blog!! Found you through Theresa @ Time-worn interiors, she is such an awesome lady! She featured me a month or so back. I gotta go read more of your blog, Blessings, Janna

  4. I can just image these tassels hanging from an old french cabinet...Beautiful

  5. Beautiful! Tassels are a wonderful thing and I have a few holding back the drapes in my living room!

    When I was in Las Vegas a few weeks ago, I found some GORGEOUS tassels in one of the Bellagio gift shops...I just HAD to have them. Until, I saw they were $80/ea. And since they were smaller than my palm, I decided to pass. But what a fun thing to collect!

  6. Theresa,

    Many thanks for featuring me on your blog.


  7. My college roomie has become a severe minimalist. Tassels represent her idea of "what were they thinking." I, lover of painted furniture and ornament, tell her my decorating style is "if it stands still, paint it. If it moves put a tassel on it. I even bought a book about making them and may take it up in my dotage.

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.....

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…
