Today I adore......

......this tapestry. I must admit I would be sad if some one were to buy it as I adore it but as Mr FF keeps telling me I cannot keep everything and must sell some items in my online shop.

I adore the detail on it, each time that I look at it I notice something different.

We also have some fabulous antique prints in stock which would look fabulous in a child's room.

They both date from the very early 1900's and are in fantastic condition. They come complete with mounting and glass covering.

Another new item is this candelabra, she would look fabulous in the middle of the dining table drapped with ivy.

We also have some fabulous antique french chandeliers which we are in the process of photographing, these will be available at the beginning of next week.
One of which has over 180 crystals - fabulous!

A tres bientot,

  1. I understand you like this tapestry! It's gorgeous! You have beautiful items in your shop! The candelabra is faboulous!
    A nice day for you!

  2. I love them too!
    Take care,

  3. Oh sweetie, everything is so beautiful. I agree that tapestry is exquisite. All of the beautiful colors, so inspire me to decorate. Imagine all of the colors you could use in a room to go around this beautiful tapestry. When it sells, you will be so sad to see it go. You may never see another so exquisite as this one. Look at the beautiful stories that it tells in each corner. I love it. Thank you for sharing it with me today.

    The candelabra is so delicate and devine. It just sparkles. When the lights are on it, I am sure it is even more beautiful.

    You must have a very beautiful shop. I love looking at your things for sale.

    Stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit. Country hugs, Sherry

  4. Gorgeous treasures, Leeann. Must be difficult to part with them, indeed!

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…
