  • How I Met My House

    13 juin 2010 ( #My House )

    Hi! One of the blogs I often read (Our Suburban Cottage, in the links) organized a "How I Met My House Party" last month. Unfortunately, it was too early for me yet to talk about the house. But I thought it was such a good idea that I'm going to write...

  • Keys!!!

    08 juillet 2010 ( #My House )

    Hi! It took a long time (or so it seemed to me) but at last, I have the keys! The front door key looks so much like an old key: I absolutely love it! The problems actually begin when you use that wondeful key to open the door... The previous owner had...

  • Coming soon...

    26 août 2010 ( #My House )

    Hi! I've been so busy and so tired in the evening that I didn't take the time to write. Hopefully rainy days are coming (am I really writing that? - see how ewhausted I am!) and it will give me some time to write. So I will soon be opening for you the...

  • Little Shop Of Horrors

    26 août 2010 ( #My House )

    So I tried to knock on heaven's door, but I actually walked in a Little Shop of Horrors. First, one of my favorite item: the kitchen's walls!!! It doesn't really show on the picture, it's not smooth at all. I guess it was made with the kind of spatula...

  • Seven Heaven

    27 août 2010 ( #My House )

    Do you consider the house ugly because you read my last post? Actually, the house has "potential". It's my favorite word to describe a house I visit: it either as "potential" or it's hopeless. So here are my own seven wonders. 1) Stone walls The house...

  • F.R.I.E.N.D.S

    28 août 2010 ( #My House )

    I don't have many friends, but I have wonderful friends. Two of my highschool friends came and visited me last May and they brought a table (and chairs) for my then-future garden! It was great because as soon as I got the keys, I had nothing in the house,...

  • A Beautiful Gift

    30 août 2010 ( #My House )

    I suffer right now from a very severe furniture shortage. So my mom brought me everything she could, meaning two awful kitchen stool that used to belong to my father's mother. Here they are: one green: and one orange (did I already mention I hate orange?):...

  • La recette du Cheesecake (enfin!)

    12 septembre 2010 ( #Cooking )

    Sorry for all English-only speaking folks, but this post was a request from French-speaking friends. Anyway no one who speaks English actually needs this recipe! A la demande quasi-générale (j'exagère comme toujours), voici la recette du cheesecake. Un...

  • A Room Of One's Own

    19 septembre 2010 ( #My House )

    A friend asked me recently if I had done anything with the house yet or rather as she put it if I had "undone" anything. It's a work in progress and I need time... But, even before I had my bed in the room, I needed to undo something. This was my very...

  • Desperately seeking Harmony...

    26 septembre 2010 ( #My House )

    Here is project #2 completed. Upstairs, the floor was just chaos! There was a fake woodfloor in the guest room and in the bathroom (but not the same, of course!), navy blue carpet in the main bedroom, a blueish thing in the toilets and an Arlequin-style...

  • I know what you did last summer...

    03 octobre 2010 ( #Four paws )

    Lots of people asked me how my cat was adjusting to his new life. Just fine!!! He just loves the new house, mostly because he spends most of the time in the garden, but also because there's a staircase, which is just wonderful to play his usual morning...

  • Corridor makeover

    06 octobre 2010 ( #My House )

    I know corridor is such a long word for such a tiny area of the house... But it's right in front of my bedroom and I couldn't stand to go to sleep waking through this: Je sais, l'espace est tellement petit qu'il ne mérite pas le nom de couloir! Mais traverser...

  • Hallowe'en

    20 octobre 2010 ( #My House )

    I never ever decorated my house for Hallowe'en. But two weekends ago, we had the rainiest Sunday ever, a colleague of mine had talked about the Hallowe'en decoration she wanted her pupils to make, and off I went gathering things that seemed Halloweeny...

  • I'm late...

    01 novembre 2010 ( #My House )

    I wanted to transform the upstairs toilets during my Hallowe'en break, but instead I got 3 wonderful friends and a baby at home. It was really great, especially the fact that the baby discovered the sea (and chocolate!) while here!!! On the plus side,...

  • Welcome home!

    11 novembre 2010 ( #My House )

    I like visiting decorating (cottage style mostly) blogs during my morning coffee break (which happens only on days when I don't work). I am always amazed at all the work people do in their houses every week... I was a bit jealous... I still am, but now...

  • A lifelong commitment...

    12 novembre 2010 ( #Inspiration )

    When it comes to decoration, I'm rather faithful... I've been in love with English cottage style since I was a little girl. My mother and I used to go to a mall not far from the village we then lived in. My mom loved shopping! I didn't, but I always wanted...

  • Around the Little White House

    13 novembre 2010 ( #Wandering around )

    If you've had a look at the weather button I have on the blog, you know it's been raining for days here... So much for my theory saying that there is at least a ray of sunshine a day here!!! I think it would cheer me up to remember better days, maybe...

  • Where does Inspiration come from?

    14 novembre 2010 ( #Inspiration )

    Whenever the question is asked on a blog, everybody has a different name of a designer to write. Well I don't. But I have tons of movie or TV-show titles whose sets have inspired me in all the different places I've lived in. I sometimes watch TV just...

  • Trois Couleurs: Blanc

    16 novembre 2010 ( #Garden )

    My mom visited last weekend and brought me some white Christmas roses from her garden. It's amazing how it looks like the little milkjug is set on a proper coffee table, don't you think? Blog magic! It's an old wood board on two cardboard boxes I kept...

  • Trouvaille...s...

    26 novembre 2010 ( #Shopping )

    You might not know the French website "Le Bon Coin": I guess it's like the "Craig's list" I read a lot about on your wonderful decorating blogs. Meaning, it's a wonderful way to spend your time on a rainy day and it's also very time consuming because...

  • Let It Snow...

    28 novembre 2010 ( #Shopping )

    To get you in the mood... Pour vous mettre dans l'ambiance... Can you believe we had the first snow fall of the year just for the first weekend of Advent? I thought I was done with snow, the house being so close to the sea, but no such luck! Don't get...

  • Deck the veranda...

    03 décembre 2010 ( #My House )

    Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by. I so wanted to be part of The Lettered Cottage party! But what are you saying? I don't have a mantel? I'm stuck at home because of a severe snow fall and can't go out shopping? Nevermind! I'll do with what I have at...

  • Winter Wonderland

    03 décembre 2010 ( #Garden )

    Again, to listen while reading... A écouter en lisant... It's been snowing a lot lately, which is very, very, very rare around here as we're supposed to be protected by the ocean, which keeps the temperatures high in winter. The garden was eerie and I...

  • Is it Christmas yet?

    13 décembre 2010 ( #My House )

    Hi everyone! Sarah, from the wonderful Modern Country Style, told me about a carol I didn't know about yet, but I really enjoyed discovering it. Sarah, du blog Modern Country Style, m'a fait découvrir un chant de Noël que je ne connaissais pas (mais comment...

  • A Little House Christmas Tree

    19 décembre 2010 ( #My House )

    On our last day of school, it was snowing (yes, again!) pretty bad when I drove back home, so rather than waiting for the next day, I stopped on my way home to buy a tree. I mean, we could have been stuck at home all weekend! Actually, this time, we just...
