She's stolen his heart...

She has the most beautiful blue eyes that you have ever seen, her skin is like porcelain and the most perfect cupid-like lips......and French Boyfriend is obsessed with her.

I admit I am jealous and who thought that a 40 something year old woman would be competing with a beautiful French creature over 100 years old, yes that is right, she is over 100 years old and not a wrinkle in sight. That said, she is showing some signs of age and there is a crack down one side of her face.

She is a "steiner" hence the reason that French Boyfriend is so obsessed with her as she is no ordinary doll.

She is beautiful and is looking for a new home......and a new outfit as she lost all her clothes a long time ago.

She will be listed on later today, that is, if I get my way as there is not room for two blue eyed girls in FB's life hence one has to go.....

Signed the other girl in FB's life x


  1. Such a sweet post ;-)
    She is a are you I'm sure...I'll look out for her listing!!
    Have a great week.

  2. Perfect eyebrows; great bangs; a French girl all right. She needs a proper attire, though. What will she wear today, the former fashionista, before her big Ebay debut? Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  3. Hi Leeann,

    The French doll is beautiful and has such a pretty face.
    I also enjoyed reading your do's and don't of French manners.
    Thanks for sharing and I hope you are enjoying your week


  4. You could always have her restored...There is a great doll's hospital near the Cathedral in Limoges. The guy there has magical hands - I have seen some of his work. In fact, his shop will be open this Sunday as it is the monthly Antiques/Brocante market near the Cathedral. The shop is a dream - he has many dolls for sale and just to admire and he sells doll's clothes, wigs etc. I love it there and always call in to check out his stock.

  5. Oh she is indeed beautiful!
    You do need to get her out of the house immediately she is very stiff competition!!!!!

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…
