 In some ways it seems to be much longer, in others it seems like yesterday. My heartfelt thanks to everyone who has followed along on this journey, and to new friends, your support is greatly appreciated!

Salle à manger update

There have been a few changes in la salle à manger, thanks in large part to the generosity of talented friends. 


Pretty tea cosy is by Linda Park, cute little cupcakes are from Elizabeth of Studio E.

Handbag, parcel (which may well contain ham or cheese for the picnic) and cool dotty shoes are by Linda Park. Linda made the shoes to match a pair of loafers I had at the time, girls just gotta have fun 😊

All packed for a picnic - let's hope the little mouse doesn't get into it first! I found him in an interesting shop that sold vintage and newly made treasures near Bastille Market in Paris. He was made in Toulouse and was part of a selection of miniature porcelain animals. Basket is by Lidi Stroud and was a birthday gift from friends a while ago.  Plates are purchased, packet of croissants by Elizabeth, all other contents are by Linda Park. 

A close-up of Linda's grapes and radishes - that little mouse is getting a little close for comfort! 

I hope you've enjoyed a look at the Paris apartment salle à manger again. More apartment updates are to come.

Although I've had an Instagram account for years it's been totally inactive until recently, I've finally got my act together and started posting. If you have an IG account please come find me

French apartment bedroom update

There have been a few changes and additions in the French apartment bedroom over the last few months. 

I'm loving how the silver perfume bottle from Shew-Jewelry House is aging. It now has two new 'friends', pretty little perfumes from Elizabeth at Studio E.

Blue crystal perfume is also by Elizabeth, eyeglasses by Alice Zinn. The silver hairbrush (also from Shew-Jewelry House) is developing a beautiful patina. 

Pretty little doll is by Lea Frisoni. She's hiding the most adorable underwear under her blue dress. 

The single bed has been replaced with this larger one. Petit point pillow is by my talented friend Linda Park (as are the slippers in the previous photo).

I have everything I need now to complete the ground floor Brocante but I've been distracted (as usual!) and I'm working on a rustic cottage. Pics and more info to come soon.
