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!

Spring Cleaning the Kitchen
I Spring Cleaned the kitchen last week.
I didn't mean to - it just kind of happened.I was getting fed up with a sticky shelf where the golden syrup tins sit,the dried fruit shelf needed a bit of a sort-out,spring was in the air outside,
and it just kind of happened!You get to see the pretty side of it...... but there was plenty of the usual grime and elbow grease and embarassingly out of date spice packets, too.And now we need Post-its to tell us where the cereal and the wooden spoons have gone!
