I'm a happily married mum of two boys, aged 17 and 19, and as a family we moved to France eleven years ago. My husband works for a French company, I teach English to French people aged 6 - 60, and English reading and writing to the English-speaking children of the area. We are part of an English speaking church in Lyon. I love to shop for French vintage lace, fabric and household items, and to combine them with my British and global treasures in interesting ways.
Thanks for coming over to my British-meets-French Vintage blog! Please leave a comment - I love to hear from anyone who takes the time to read my posts, and I try to pop back and visit your blogs whenever I can.

I am not a perfect mother or housewife. There is dog hair under the sofa and the boys eat with their elbows on the table, however much they're nagged. I just assume you'd rather see the pretty stuff!

Other people's blogs, and give-aways!
The Farm Chicks are two very charming and entertaining Americans who seem to have become popular just for doing the things they love - baking, making, generally enjoying vintage-type stuff. They are great fun and their blog is well worth a read - the link is there, just click on their name (above). At the moment they're doing a give-away, which is one of the very exciting things about blogging! I will be one of the hundreds who enter the give-away, so I will tell you if by any chance I win!
