Red red red

Isn't that strange... All this red in my basket as I come back from a French Brocante ! Wonderful treasures : 10 embroidered napkins, a sugar shaker, 6 flowered plates named Irisand 2 fruit dishes (Floréal KG Luneville), a glass cup with its cloche, a great plate with a redrose, 6 plates named Londres... I appreciate this quiet time before the kids go back to school, before autumn and fresh evenings.I would like this happiness and joyful time remain for the next months !

Washing day

Let see here, Longmétrage how antique fabrics and embroideries can take new colors. To recycle pale or yellowed clothes, I have used a black dye : each fabric reacts depending onthe percentage of cotton it contains : how surprising it was to obtain this blue gray I love somuch. I am ready to come back to work ! A new look for a set of old napkins, fitting very well with this old Sarreguemines plate named 'Tsarine'... and two glass cloches : one is very fine and delicate, I use it to preserved some chocolate...

And when you venture in the surrounding woods, you can have pleasant encounters, does or delicious treasures like these... Have a nice trip !

My countryside

I have the chance to live in that nice area of south-west of France, near Toulouse, we call le Lauragais. On a sunny sunday, cycling with the family near the house, moments of pure happiness to share with you...          Un petit haras sympathique : et toujours, ces murs roses...    une entrée secrète, un pigeonnier     Un clocher-mur Un chemin entre les blés, les briques rouges et l'herbe verte, qu'il nous tarde de retrouver leweek-end...

Hydrangeas

For me, Hydreangeas are definitely linked to holidays on the west coast of France, in the verypreserved area of Morbihan (little sea in Breton). A wild nature, many islands to discover, littles boats, plenty of birds... without forgetting thedelicious crêpes and cider, for a recoverry after an entire day cycling around the gulf.A soft life in summer with a wonderful weather, and when the tourists have gone, anharder winter, rain and deserted villages - rainwear compulsory - but such romantic places... To welcome... [Lire la suite]

Blue garden

The sun has hidden, it is ideal time to weed, plant, and color the garden. Electric blue lobelias associates to purple vervains... So happy are the windows... The garden is generous, the rose trees opened this morning, the boxwood explode, to be cut soon.   The cornflowers start their second flowering...   And colors, for reward, enter in the house...   Bonne journée !
