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!

It was my birthday yesterday and I had a great day! My friend Matthew worked out how to use the auto pilot on my camera, which I've never done...I decided to get out my Limoges and 'nearly Limoges' for a proper tea party.
Son 1 made herb teas from the garden.
I made cakes and buns and our guests brought more.
Son 2 and Ben made some mega-cakes which deserve a post of their own - hopefully on Wednesday, although it's going to be a hectic week...
Thanks for your birthday greetings on Facebook - that was a lovely surprise!
