Favorite French Country Posts for 2016

As we slip into a new year, I thought it would be fun to look back at 2016
 at some of my favorite French Country posts that you may have missed.
Some are in the top-viewed ranks; others are simply my personal favorites. 
To read more about each post, just click on the link.

This is my all-time number one most-viewed post . . . and also one of my all-time favorites. 
Tiny but with a lot of French soul. 



Old books add charm and warmth to a room, no matter what style it is. 



This chippy old farm table stole my heart.



A mix of cottage style plus formal design and voila!



Everyone needs an LBB, right?



Miss Roxy had to be in one of my 2016 faves. 



Can't go wrong with ironstone -- a classic.



I can't wait til spring. 



Even if you don't buy anything, it's fun to check out the insides of old houses.



Bringing the outdoors in -- how refreshing!


Looking back recaptures fond memories and teaches us a few lessons along the way
while looking forward brings exciting new challenges and fresh ideas.
I hope you'll stay tuned for a fun year in 2017.
Peace, joy and love to each of you!

    1. Thanks Monika. I have to tell you a funny dog story...last year when the D. Broncos won the Super Bowl, we were all dancing around and yelling. That's when our little Bichon mix decided to get in on the fun and starting dancing around on her back feet. She'd never done that trick before. So cute. All the best to you in 2017. Pat
