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!

The Wanderers Return...
We've been away (as you may have noticed) for a long, long time. It's been wonderful! I'm longing to tell you more, but life is quite astonishingly busy on our return, and finding time to sort the photos and write about it all is low on the list, I'm afraid. I'll just leave you with a guessing game: we left France and camped by the sea, then by a medieval city, next on the banks of a mighty river curving around an ancient city and finally stayed in the mountains near a second sea. How near can you get to guessing our itinerary?
