I love the many varied colors of French Blue. From the faded Paris rooftops and majestic doors to the everyday items that glisten in hues of blue, there’s no mistake it’s a mesmerizing sense of color. It can become a preoccupation when walking the streets of Paris.
Take a seat, s’il vous plait!
I’m always drawn to certain blues and a pair of seltzer bottles caught my eye right away in a hidden antique shop in Normandy
It’s a clear crisp perfect shade of blue. A simple bistro staple that’s elevated to chic. I love the simple vibrant pop of color against a cool background.
Here is where I first spied one of them.
And here they are in my “stash”.
I’m looking forward to our Fall Shopping tour already. What treasures will we find this year?

Bonjour friends! With springtime in the air (although we had more snow this week!) my thoughts are of the charming French countryside.
I’m trying to decide where to place this pastoral oil on board that I found in Normandy last Fall. I like it in the kitchen for now.
It was such a neat experience finding and winning this piece at a respected French auction house. This painting reminds me of the idyllic scenes in rural France and has me longing to return for more inspiration.
Being a country gal, I have a soft spot for pastoral scenes and animals in décor.
Cows anyone? I found this painting at the same auction house. (I realize you can see my reflection in the mirror!)
Looking at these paintings today has me in a giddy French Country mood as I prepare to return to France again in May. I’ll share details about the trip later.
