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!

Thank you so much
Dear friends, thank you so much for your lovely words about my mum's death. We are feeling sad and numb but very much loved, within our family and also by our wider circle of friends - messages have come by computer, by phone and by post from all around the world, reminding us of how much my mother was loved by all those who met her. Her funeral will be on Thursday. I will be so pleased to see Ben and the boys when they arrive on Wednesday. Normal blogging service will resume some time after that.
