French Antique Shopping

French Antique is something I am very passionate about. I don't know why I am love old, not perfect and previously loved objects.

I don't know what's around my little french village yet but found some antique shop near the village.

I wish I could buy whole store but just have to look at them and admire them for a while.

Have a good day wherever you are.

A Little French village near my house

Wow, it's already February.
I will be leaving to France middle of next month.

I left my heart in France, no wonder I am not doing well (lol)

I love the architecture of Maison de Maitre (Master's House ) , most of this kind of house is in the centre of the village. We were lucky to find our house in a quite setting.  My house is sort of middle of nowhere that's why we love it more.

Here is the village where I buy my baguette and butter.
This little village has everything I need.

I can't wait to pay a visit.

Bonne Journee.

Yes, there is a spa.

 This is where I get my coffee.

Pharmacy,  and supper market. bank.

There are two Boulanger, but this one is the famous one.

I like this one, they make really good sandwitch

Yes, Pizzeria

This is the town hall. the most beautiful building in the village, I think.

What's happening in my French house?

It's been a while I updated my poor neglected blog. I was came back from France about 2 and half months ago. I am going back in middle of March to check on the renovation.  I am happy to go back to my house in France but 23 hours flights from Melbourne to Paris is a bit too much these day, not to mention about 3 hours driving from Paris to my house.

Here are some photos from my last visit.

 Sun is setting and lights on.

I also managed to buy most of the bedroom furniture. 

I was very luck to find this original Louis bedroom set, including matching Armoire , two bed side table (according to the antique shop owner, this kind of bed only come with one side table)

Another Louis Bedroom set. 

wondering about in the temporary living room.

I can't wait to go back but there will be so much to do.  so much painting to do, not to mention wall paper has to come off first. 4 bath and shower room to be renovated, Septic tank need to be replaced.  Whole house being rewired at the moment, and the kitchen is totally gut it out for face lift.

A few more photos of my French House

It's beautiful sunny Saturday in Melbourne , however My mind is wondering how gorgeous my French house would be around this time.

I love peony , but unfortunately we can't plant peony in our garden in Melbourne .

When we looked at the French house with the the Agent, he was so proud to point out that there are a few peonies in the garden.

My French house is set on just little bit of two acres, separate veggie garden and the pasture for horse and all .

I am planning what I will do when I go to France day and night.

Here are some more photos of the house.

Enjoy your weekend
