I don’t know about all of you, but my husband and I haven’t dined out on Valentine’s Day in probably fifteen years! That night it is overly crowded, and the food is always expensive. Most years we do a dinner out on another night and a family dinner on Valentine’s Day itself. But this year, it falls on a Thursday which happens to be a night my teens will be out at a weekly function. So I thought, why not do a special dinner at home in our own dining room? Candles, good food, uninterrupted conversation and no crowds or over-priced food – sign me up!
Hi all, and welcome to our weekly dose of French-ish inspo, French Country Fridays! This past week has been a flurry of organizing here (my obsession with “tidying and “marie-kondoing” is continuing, haha!) Last week I did my entire kitchen, and this week is the pantry which has involved re-painting the inside shelves as it had never been done. I always get this purging and cleaning bug in January, how about you? Are you one to organize and start with a “clean slate” for the New Year?
If you follow design trends at all, or peruse Pinterest frequently, I’m sure you’ve seen the trendy patterned tiles in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. I think I first saw them a couple of years ago, and from that moment on, I was smitten!
Good morning friends, and Happy Best-Day-of-the-Week! We’ve been having tons of rain and some pretty cold weather lately (at least for California!) which is perfect for me this time of year. The minute it’s drizzly I love staying inside and cozying up under a blanket in front of the fire, or even better, continuing my organizing and purging!
Hey everyone – hope you’re all doing well this week! I’ve been so disorganized and discombobulated since the beginning of the year – I literally don’t even know what day it is! Is this a January thing, or is it just me?!
I’m super fired up to re-organize, purge, clean, and putter. But I’m also behind with unpaid bills and stacks of papers on my desk! But, I promised that I would be doing a post all about winter decorating tips, and I’m here to keep that promise!
Hello and welcome to the first French Country Fridays of 2019! How are you enjoying the New Year? Is your home still decorated for the holidays, or are you one of those who takes everything down the day after Christmas?
My holiday decor is down, but I haven’t got it completely cleaned up and put away quite yet. And I must confess, my house definitely feels pretty bare! I do love the feeling of cleaning and purging – you know that “clean slate for the New Year” thing, but I must admit it feels a little empty!
