Bonne Année and new items in the shop!

Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!  I took a few weeks off from blogging and social media to focus on my family...after all of the travel we did from October thru December, I just felt that I needed to step back and focus on my kids and making the Christmas season special for them.

I am now refreshed and feeling inspired to get going on listing some of the wonderful flea market finds from our France travels into the shop!  We painted my son's room {the walls} just after Christmas and sanded his floor, to give it a bit of a distressed look...and so I have been using his room as my photography studio this past week! :)

Here is a peek at the vintage French items I will be loading in the shop today...

{love my new Paris to Provence cookbook that my sister got me for Christmas!}

And as a follow-up to our Lavender and Shea Butter Handmade Soap, we are now carrying Shea Butter Body Cream {in lavender and unscented}!  Just in time for winter-weary skin!

My husband had Shingles just after Christmas and this weekend my son came down with the chicken pox, so I am a bit behind on where I wanted to be with loading new items.  So please be patient with me as I will be loading items all day!  I have sooo much more to photograph, so please check back often for new Flea Market Finds!!

Shop French Larkspur

Have a great day!


p.s.  I wanted to let you know too that I am no longer carrying the Jeanne d' Arc Living Magazine.  If you are in need of a place to get the magazine, you can order it from *HERE*

p.p.s.  I am no longer posting on Facebook {just trying to streamline my efforts} but you can find me posting regularly on Instagram.

Well good to see you back!! I have to say I would like one of everything you have shown that too much to ask!?!? Had a feeling you were not going to carry the mag.anymore..its funny cause the last few I got did nothing for me..and I do have quite a collection to enjoy over and over. Anyway glad to see you back as I said..will pop over to the shop later today! xo

I have always wondered how anyone can keep up with all the social networking sites that are available. Glad you are still blogging, Tracey!
LOVELY new items in your shop. I'm always looking for new French accents for our cottage.
Have a happy one,

I am so beautified over hère with your Frenchness!
Sigh! Swooning, and drooling over your beauty.
I hope when you find these treasures you keep one of each :)
I know often this cannot take place or our homes will overflow with much, but to see how amazing your vignettes look how could one give it up.

Kerrie from sea cottage gifted me a French book from your shop, I was over joyed to receive it.
I have been busy creating all things in the likeness of the Northen parts of France with its pale patinas that breathe a life know one understands unless you visit and live it in your home.

I love the inspiration in all you do, so wish we were neighbors so I could come a barrow a pot of honey :)
And then wander about your house touching everything in reach :)

Thank you for your share, I will be back to check things out.
