Forty-three Years


Forty- three years ago today when I was a mere baby, just kidding, I married my best friend. We don't have very many pictures taken together, but I snapped this selfie of us for a Mardi Gras themed Christmas party we went to in 2016. He looks like he has a strange thing growing out of his head since the Christmas tree is behind him. I need to remember things like this for future selfies. 😀

Wow Us Wednesdays #376


It's already party time again! The weeks are flying by and beautiful spring weather will be here soon. We are having spring temps, but if we could only have some sunshine for more that just a few hours in two weeks time would be awesome. Looks like the weekend is going to be much better and that will be a welcomed change.

Let's look at some features from last week and get this party started.

Look at this beautiful kitchen in the new home of Petite Haus. This is only part of it so be sure to check it out.

Swapping Chairs


I was so thrilled to find a set of antique French chairs on ebay a year ago. I had been wanting a real set of French dining chairs with rush seats for quite some time and was finally able to afford them. I had intended for them, from the beginning, to go in the breakfast room with the French farm table and that is where they have been .........until now.

Cloches, Chairs, a Daybed and More...French Country Fridays


I'm so ready for the weekend and it's a long holiday weekend for the mister. First thing I want to say is that I'm praying for all the families in Florida affected by the tragedy there this week. The school this happened at is only four miles from my son's house that they just moved into a few months ago. The grands are home schooled and are elementary age so thank goodness they weren't involved.
This hits way too close to home.

Let's move on to a happier subject and that's French country decorating.

I dug out a post from last year about finding the perfect chairs and be sure to come back Monday to see how I changed them up.

How I Decorate with French Everyday Items


Today I'm sharing how I decorate with French everyday items. I have collected quite a few French items that the French may use in their daily lives, but I display them as decorative accessories throughout my home. I have only gathered these things through my blogging years since 2010.
