French Farmhouse Elements

French Farmhouse Elements. So here it is. My living room.   In all it’s so-called glory.  I’ve been sitting on the post for three weeks because… confession… I’m a perfectionist. There.   I said it.   As if you didn’t know.   Maybe I didn’t really know.   Maybe my desire to do this stupid post made it pretty darn…

Jardin Potager at Dusk | Parisienne Farmgirl

Potager…Pregnancy Update

Dusk in the Jardin Potager.   I love those words… jardin potager.   They are so romantic and descriptive to me I can hardly stand it. But you have to swear to me that you will pronounce it “poe-tagh-ay” – soft “g” and all that.   Never say “pot-ig-er”.   Ever. —— Winding down here. Had my last big…
