vendredi fleurs...

{my latest tresor}

Sorry for the lack of posts this week but it has been a busy week with lots going on.

Yesterday I bought the fabulous light fitting that you see above, from my friend who owns a brocante in the village.

As soon as I saw it, it was love at first sight and I had to have it.

It is perfect for our new bedroom as I am using a lot of white and this fabulous object has the right amount of colour.


I have a thing about roses at present and love them in any form whether it be parfum d'ambiance, dried rose buds scattered in the bottom of a hurricane lamp or in a bouquet.

We even have a rose scented candle in the bedroom which smells divine.

Do you have a favourite flower at present? Vous me dites. J'aimerais savoir.....

Je te souhaite une bonne fin de semaine.....

p.s. Mr FF cannot believe the weight of my new "tresor" and is now thinking about re-enforcing the ceiling of the bedroom, and has told me not to bring any more chandeliers home.

  4. I am a fan of chandeliers, too! I wish I had more houses to use them. I even have one in my master bathroom! Never too much to be and feel chic!
    Enjoy your treasure!

  6. I love your chandelier - every time I buy them my OH does a big groan while he wonders how he is going to fit this one. I think a beautiful pale pink old rose has to be my favourite flower whatever time of year it is.

  9. Bonjour, Leeann:

    J'mappelle Kelsi, et j'habite à Wisconsin. I just discovered Fabulously French this week and wanted you to know I have already read every blog post you have written. I am so inspired by your gentle and positive lifestyle. I feel that is something that really lacks in les États-Unis. Everything here is about convenience and being in a hurry, and there is not much joy in that. I want so badly to live in Europe for a time but you have encouraged me to live with a new attitude here until I can make that dream a reality. Merci beaucoup!

    - Kelsi

  10. Hi Leeann,

    I adore your pretty light fitting, the perfect little roses and the colour so soft.
    It will look so beautiful up ~ good luck to Mr FF, with attaching it to the ceiling.

    Happy weekend
    Hugs
    Carolyn

  11. Hi there, I am lucky that I live next to my Mum, she has a beautiful English rose garden, I can not name one in paticular but the scented old roses are beautiful and each has a different fragrance, she often cuts a single bloom and allows me to have it.
    As for the chandelier, that is a minor detail for something so lovely.

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



Ingredients:


1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup dried lavender
4 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream

Method:

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…
