Wanted to host a little get together
for you, for me...
|Our little picnique, care for a seat? Even have a bit of French bottle water for all.|
Can't wait for the vines to fill in over our fence this summer,
tons of white fleur vines....
The truth is I've been busy
with my addiction...
All Things French Love
Searching for great finds, meeting new contacts
here in the States & overseas in order to bring
wonderful French & romantic finds to my home,
store and to my lovely customers et friends!
And as a few folks know,
my husband and I have been caring for our
beloved Zeke, who has been under the weather
now that he's an elderly Great Pyrenees
|The Best Dog in the World to Us|
If, in your life, you've loved a dog,
You understand what I'm talking about,
cherishing some last time on the clock...
I have to say in type here,
Thank YOU for getting me with Zeke
and understanding my lack of correspondence
and for BEING A FRIEND.
I haven't been around and I feel bad about that,
but thought I'd let every one know just what's going on here.
I had my friend, Lily over the other day.
We sat in the side yard and I took a few
photos to host for you.
The yard's a mess, but why not show the real thing?
Wild Wine Country Mustard
and vines beginning to grow.
So here we go...
Perhaps we'll start with my supervisor cat,
she can't be found until I want to take photos
then she's in every frame!
Love the white camellias, they glow in the Sun and with the Moon
as well... Love to gaze out the window at the bistro set
with the fleurs sitting so close by.
Perhaps my favorite little white box from France
in the middle of the table...
It's worn now but loved even more than the day I picked it up
Bits of shells, driftwood, zinc, spanish moss and other tidbits fill it up
Oui! I love the way it's worn and look how it fits together perfectly.
I love the rugged box all worn along with my plates from Mayenne
and Mother of Pearl knives from my grandmother
Masculine & feminine mix together for our picnique Français!
Have loved this Le Petit DéJeuner platter
since I found it.
Guess what's inside? Not hard, right?
But of course, the real thing...
The perfect breakfast as the French like it
We're so lucky to be able to walk to the store and purchase
Le Petit Déjeuner here in Wine Country
Here's their link below in case you're interested in reading more
about the Marin French Cheese Company
Saint Therese also graces the bistro table...
You will find her in My Petite Maison store
come Thursday afternoon.
Of course, I've got my French market cart dressed up
with lots of little French items too
Why miss an opportunity?
A few antique Eiffel Tower bottles, French cornichon jars
and a very old large jar that used to house
Herbes de Provence
This is just an empty French wine case, but I love the picture
of the rooster and hen from "The Old Farm"
So, what will you use from your collection...
old, new, an empty wine case, or just about anything
to make things festive? I'd love to know!
Thanks for coming by, reading my blog
and for understanding my lack of being around lately.
Okay, I'm off to stock My Petite Maison store,
I have so many wonderful French finds to photograph
and place in the store for you to see.
Of course, I'll be doing most of that with
Cher Zeke... right at my feet.
By the way, the French giveaway winner
is Kerrie from Sea Cottage.
Congrats, Kerrie. I'll be contacting you soon.
Thank you to every one for entering and posting
about the event, it means so much to me.
See you soon.
Happiness to you!
