A dream home

Whether you daydream of a glamorous Parisian apartment or a rustic Provincial farmhouse, you have to take inspiration from a Country that definitely has a great sense of design and style.
I just adore this little place inside, and out.

I truly do appreciate how kind and thoughtful you are.
Have a lovely week, mes amies.



  1. Fabulous photos, everyday I seem to fall a little bit more in love with France - my adopted country or should I say the country that adopted me :-)

  2. Dearest Carolyn,
    God bless you and may the week be a sweet one!

    The pics are charming...puts me in the mood to dream and desire to see some of these places.


  3. So beautiful! As much as I would love to think that I could live in a gorgeous place such as that I don't think I could . . I would feel like a visitor, LOL

    Thank you for your visit and comment. I was beginning to wonder if anyone liked my sassy footstool, ha ha ha! Blogger won't let me publish comments but I did get it!

    Have a wonderful week, Carolyn!


  4. Lovely, lovely Carolyn. Thanks for the wonderful photos and quote about gratitude.

    I have a 1906 bear named Patience. She has been in my life for 30 plus years. If you go back in my blog to January (I think) you will see her. She is only about 10" tall.

    Sending joy,

  10. Hi Leeann,

    I can see how you would fall in love everyday with France, there is so much to love about it.

    Hi Deanna,

    I hope that you are having a wonderful week and glad that the pictures put you in the mood to dream too.

    Hi Marsha,

    Your footstool is lovely and I like the transformation.
    It can be a problem when blogger won't let you publish. Enjoy your week.

    Hi Sharon,

    Many thanks for your visit.
    I will have to go back and take a look at your bear Patience, how lovely that you have a beautiful old bear.

    Thank you Julie, for coming to visit my blog, and I will come and say hello to you.
    I look forward to seeing your dream home.

    Hi Rosemary,

    I was feeling the same way, I wanted to move in when I saw this house.

    thank you for visiting me Princess Nadi.

    Hi Mary,

    No, I did not stay there in this beautiful home.
    I love the patio area also, it would be so lovely to have dinner out there.

    Thank you Miss Eve, and I hope that you week is going well.

  23. Hi Sharon,

    I wish I could say tomorrow, and yes, we are free to dream of beautiful places like this.


  24. That is a beautiful home!! Wow! Yes, I'll take one, please. ;)

  25. Such an adorable house Carolyn, but somehow I can't see MOTH & his big lumbering frame mooching around it. It would definitely be for Millie only!
    M ^_^
