Merci mon cher.......

{Bedroom - Maison No. 20}

Yes I finally persuaded Mr FF to hang the "other" chandelier for me. Please excuse the quality of the photos as they were taken in a bit of a hurry as I took them before I opened my wee shop yesterday morning.

This is a "before" photo, although I adore this chandelier I just thought that it was not strong enough in colour when compared to the other objects in the room.

This is the "after" shot and I much prefer this chandelier and now will be looking for a home for the other one.....

I think that I may just make Mr FF a gateau today to show my appreciation.

He went to see our plasterers last night as we wanted to know when they would be back to complete the plastering of the room that will be our new kitchen/dining room.

They are both malade (sick)at present with a terrible tummy bug so I am hoping that they get well soon.

Well I had better fly, I have a busy day ahead as I need to go and see a lady about a "maison".

Wishing you all a fabulous Friday and an extra fabulous weekend/

Je vous souhaite à tous un fabuleux vendredi et un week-end très fabuleux,

  2. The bedroom is fabulous and I really like the new chandelier it strengthens the whole room. Well done!

  6. It is perfect, love it!
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. Nice;
    I am on the hunt for one for my daughters room. Finding the right one is a tough thing, yours fits in wonderfully. A great feeling when you can check off the list things to do - are done.
    Have a good weekend!

  8. Your decor is to die for ...

    Have a lovely weekend.

  9. Bonjour LeeAnn,
    Looks fabulous! IT does look better a bit darker. You and Mr FF work so hard on Maison 21, it looks like the perfect place to spend some time.
    Bon week-end,

  10. Bonjour...c'est un plaiseur de connaitre!
    I don't know if I wrote that right....

    it's a pleasure to meet you! you left an email on Etsy for me, so i thought I'd pop on over to your blog! I'm now following you!
    do come by and see my blog sometime as well if you haven't already!

    ciao bella
    creative carmelina

  11. Good Mr FF - he totally deserves un morceau or more de gateau ! x

  12. The new chandelier really does balance out the room a little better. I love both of them though! Happiness is a new chandelier! ~Lili

  13. Hi Leeann,

    The bedroom is gorgeous and love the new chandelier.
    Looks so inviting and a lovely room.

    Happy weekend

  14. The perfect finishing touch to this gorgeous room - the chandelier is divine! Hope you're having a lovely weekend. Leigh

  15. From one chandelier lover to another ~ very pretty!

  16. Beautiful! Love your blog. So glad I found it.


  17. Leeann this is really gorgeous! The room looks so "royal"! :)
    So another reason I am writing you is, because I finally found a way to a cheaper shipping. So at first I leaned that shipping from Romania to France is about 16 euros, which I found tremendous for a brooch, but luckily my father has a friend who workes at the post office and she taught me a way to deal with this situation (as in putting it in a magazine and send it as such) Perfectly legal, otherwise she would risk losing her job. So don't worry! :) And that is 5 euros.
    So anyway, I should give you my email address, so if you're still interested, let me know. erika.iozsa(at)gmail(dot)com

  18. Looks great! The Hubby did a wonderful job!

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…
