So simple and yet so effective. What is not to love about this bathroom. I am about to start work on a new design project and this is just what I had in mind for the bathroom......c'est parfait.

  1. Gorgeous... one for my future 'dream house' scrap book! Are you planning this for your house or for someone elses?

  2. Hi Leeann,

    I love the bathroom, especially the gorgeous bath in the middle of the room.
    So sorry to hear of your Grandmother being in hospital and sending my well wishes for her that she will soon be out again.


  3. bathtubs are a must in every bathroom, but this one is gorgeous in particular... love these free standing models

  4. mais oui....cést vraiment parfait!!!!!! I would so much love to just lie forever :))))

  5. Simply elegant Leeann!
    I think this is truly how a bath should be!

  8. Love this tub - would rip out the wall shower/tub combo with my bare hands in a second if I thought I could have this is so pretty and I love how it free-stands in the room.

  9. every woman should have a tub and a chandelier like that in their bathroom.

  10. I do love that tub! I've always wanted one just like it! I love the look of the mirror but it would have to be really dim lights when I get it that tub! LOL

  11. Pretty! I want to do something similar in my much smaller (4' by 6') guest bath. Have to pay off my kitchen remodel first! Love to have you stop by and check it out!
    Oh, I'm now a follower!

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. 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.

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…
