Is it the season of the year?
Is it a season in my life?
I am becoming a little nostalgic, dear frineds. I recall the details of my mom's house, decorated by her in the 60s, styled in the French style that looked quite passe to me, only a few years ago. I am not all for it now, but I am thinking of little touches that may add some elegant and feminine details
With God's blessings, our eldest is travelling to Paris in the Spring with her class. I think I am almost as excited as she is.
In that spirit, blogs and websites with French ismpired decorating ideas seem to be popping up in front of me every day.
I am sharing them with you, so that you too may be inspired.
I am curently stuck with The Bottom of the Ironing Basket, a blog not strictly concerned with either France or decoration. But the esprit des lieux is such, with weeeknds to Paris, French fashion and a selection of lovely photography, that it provides my daily French fix!
If you are serious about French style and want to bring some of it home, the French Garden House shop and blog is the place to turn to.
From exquisite firniture to antiques and jewellery, this is a joyful place of endless beauty and inspiration.
Last but not least, I got myself a little something last week.
It is a sweet little choker from Etsy seller Elegant Rarity.
So unlike me, and yet...
I read that the young lady who makes them is an Archaeology student~I am an Archaeology graduate.
Can it be serendipity?
