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!

Festive Front Door
I didn't tell you one of the best things about my Cookie Exchange with the MOPS last week... One of the mums, Amy, showed us a wreath she'd made and took orders for more...
Today I drove down to her small town and met her and a friend for lunch, and got to take home this wonderful hand-made wreath I'd ordered! It was a lovely chance to meet up in a French café, chat, and relax. And our front door looks better than it's ever done before...
