Inspiration: Let There Be Light



a pleasure for the senses

Stand still, listen to the bamboo swaying in the breeze, can you hear the trickle of water in the stream nearby? Open your eyes wide, look up high, admire the ancient, majestic trees. Walk through the dark, dense forests, then step into a pool of golden light. Cheeky rays of sunshine darting, playing, illuminating, for a few seconds at least.

We love this place and never tire of spending an afternoon in Anduze.

I hope you get the chance to go there one day - this Summer perhaps, if you find yourself down south?

Mercredi Moodboard - Hello You!

 Hello Wednesday,
Oh Hello You!

We are enjoying a two-week Easter school break here in the South of France and loving every minute of it!

I made a decision to spend more time with my kids this year as my eldest is now in higher education and very rarely here. What, almost 19? How did that happen? 
It's a cliché, I know, but they grow up so quickly - you'll see.

We've been busy at home and in our beautiful garden (are you following me on instagram yet?). I have lots to share with you over the next couple of weeks, and I am looking forward to getting back into blogging more.

Do you still read blogs, I wonder? I do, a few anyway.
The online world is changing all the time and if you've been following me on Kickcan and Conkers for a while, I'm sure you can sense a change in style and approach. I like that. I'm not the same person I was when I started my blog almost 6 years ago and I have always tried to really be "myself" in this online space. Change is good, right?

Bref, I'm working on some new projects, more in line with the person I am now.
I hope to be able to share more with you this Summer.

No Hanging Around





Oh my,
No time these days...
Can you believe it's almost Easter?
Faithful followers please forgive me,
I am seldom here, 'tis true.
But life, real life, is busy.
And I am enjoying working on new projects
for me and you.

Offline is the new luxury - I like that...

I have been spending more time on instagram lately and have to say that I really love sharing snippets of my life in the South of France. 

Have a wonderful Bank Holiday, and go easy on the chocolate!

Thank you for the inspiration:

Inspiration: A Word or Two


Je suis désolée,
I feel like I owe you all an apology.
I've had a nasty bout of gastric flu and I'm only just beginning to feel myself.
The days and nights seem to have merged into one this week; I'm lost.

I'll be back in the land of the living on Monday.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the inspiration:

A Shared Style

 Bonjour !

Saturday is flea market day!
No matter how much stuff we've accumulated over the years, I can never resist a trip to Sommières to have a rummage. I mean, you never know what you might find...

I love vintage objects with a soul, a history, a story to tell.
The kind of beautiful products you'll find in the Parisian etsy shop

They add so much character to a home, don't you think?

Yesterday I was invited to share a few photos of our main living space on Emma's inspiring blog

My instagram and pinterest followers will already have a good idea of my personal interior style.
I like to keep things simple,

Have a great weekend!

et à bientôt !

Be Still Now.
Enjoy the moment.

All is quiet
And calm.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday!

Be kind to yourself, take five minutes to relax, do something you love.

Inspiration: The Little Things



right now,
I am learning how to enjoy the little things.

That smile, those sleepy eyes, the way she ties her hair back.

Life is short, must rush, so much to do,
places to go, people to see...
I have a life you know!

And yet,
hold still, look around, feel.
Inhale the little things.
Deep, deeply.

Here & Now
'Tis enough for me.

Thanks for the inspiration:
