Bûches de Noël...or Yule Logs? (12-28-10)

Ah...The delicious pastries we make to mark the holidays! Nothing is more portent of Christmas than the Bûche de Noël, a thin sponge cake filled with Chestnut butter cream, rolled into the shape of a log, and covered in Chocolate butter cream. It's a pleasure for the eyes and the mouth...

Lavender Dreams (07-12-10)

This is a view of the fragrant lavender growing at the front of the property. I plan to gather it next year and make sachets to sell... Won't that be wonderful?!

I'm really excited to get this Vintage Project going (06-07-10)

What a dream come true to get a perfectly postcard-charming 1904 farmhouse with a huge landscaped yard, with old oak trees, and a rose garden...
I am really excited to start organizing all the fantastic vintage treasures I've collected over many years, to have them available to you, and to welcome you, dear Readers, to my little Studio once a month.
I'll try to keep you informed about new developments as they come...
