Ready for the weekend?

I am.  It’s nice to finally be over being sick and I’m looking forward to heading out in the Provencal countryside again.

Much is happening here and I will be sharing as things progress.  Our time in the city is finally winding down and I am already dreaming of the countryside.

Next week starts a buying trip that will take us to Paris, Normandy and the Loire Valley.  I love being on the road and going wherever the road and whim takes us.  Traveling with a friend makes it all the better.

Follow along with us on Instagram for daily doses of our journey.

The shop is loaded with new finds, with more to come over the weekend.

Happy Weekend!

Neutral Decorating in a London Home

Neutral Decorating in a London Home

It’s hard to pick a favorite…. 

Suffice it to say that I’m pretty smitten by them all.

From the vintage pieces repurposed as cabinetry, to the simple sink resting atop a cabinet in the bath every item showcases the thought and creativity that went in to creating this lovely residence.

Blogging in a Different Way

Blogging in a Different Way

Blogging in a Different Way

I can write or I can get lost in inspirational photos.  That is my truth….whether I like it or not.

I have learned that each of these processes are very different tasks for me and not necessarily ones that work well together.  Once I head down the rabbit hole of a visual media site I can get lost and off track for hours.

Combining the two in to the process of creating a blog post had become something that I put off until the ‘right time’…..as if that really existed in a daily routine.

Blogging in a different way

There are so many place to find what inspires me visually.  Be it on my Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr or Facebook, there is no shortage of beauty to be found.

What I don’t do on those formats is write.  I had to face up to the fact that it was time for me to get back to sharing stories about living in France, whether it be the charm or the insane frustration at times, or the excitement of shopping in the brocantes.  After all, this was the reason I started this blog.  It had just evolved in to something else over time.

Is this the right path?  Only time will tell, but things are off and running as of today!  Just writing this post without the pressure to fill it with the perfect images was a breeze.

The brocante will still operate, shopping trips will still be scheduled and the blog will go on, but each will have time devoted to them.

I hope that this is the motivation that gets me back on the road to writing again….and to sharing what is inspiring me at the moment.

Stay tuned there is more to come!
