{image from here}

Happy, happy Pink Saturday. Where did the week go? I do not know about yours but mine whooshed past tres vite.

As you can see from the above photo, I am still obsessed by the fabulous and oh so french 2CV.

This week I would like to introduce you to a newish Pink Saturday participant, the gorgeous Erika who is the owner of the very interesting blog called Le monde d' Erika.

Erika was born and raised in Romania, in a Hungarian family, but like many of us, including moi, is French at heart.

She is an International Relations student, with a dream of opening small store in the future, selling recycled, beautified furniture and different decorating objects.

She loves to create, to paint, to sketch, to craft, to write and to design. She also likes to try different styles,and be one step ahead of the pack and also likes to be inspired by a bygone era.

{some of Erika's gorgeous creations}

Erika's motto is "Live simply, live beautifully", a girl after my own heart. For more on Erika, please click here.

Finally, I am sending each of you a bouquet of pink roses, I do hope that you like them...

I am sure that they smell just as nice as they look!

Wishing you all a fabulous pink Saturday and do not forget to visit Beverly's blog for a list of all of this week's Pink Saturday participants.

  9. Hi Leeann,

    Love the pretty pink roses, thank you.
    Also the 2CV - a favourite car of mine, only they are left hand drive and not really suitable for NZ roads, they are also a manual.
    I saw one for sale over here, a two tone grey that someone had brought back from France.
    I do not know where the week went too!
    Have a great weekend

  14. Happy Pink Saturday...thank you for sharing Erika with us!! Enjoy your weekend xOxO

  15. Dearest Leeann,
    Thank you so much for featuring me...even I would like to visit my blog after such a nice introduction, haha!
    I have not forgotten about you with regards to your interest in my broaches, however, I still need to search for some sort of better deal for shipping, because I have no idea what their problem is...So far every deal on postage was insane! Hope to find something better. For some reason it is a lot cheaper sending to then from Romania. Don't see the rationality in that though...;)
    We'll keep in touch and if I cannot find anything, as a final solution, when I get to France this summer I will post it from there, hahaha! :o)
    Thank you so much, AGAIN!
    Smiles and bisous,


  17. Ohhhh, those roses are so beautiful!!! I am off to visit Erika!!

    Wishing you a simply fabUlous Pink Saturday!

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…
