I'm such a lucky girl! Last week the postman delivered the most amazing parcel, all the way from the UK. My good friend Claire sent me these beautiful Jane Harrop kits - perfect for my French House.

I have always wanted the little lavender trug - I imagined it propping open my kitchen door on a warm Summers day, with the sunshine streaming in - the epitomie of a typical French Country Chateau!

This little barrel horse is also one of my favourites. Once finished, it is going to grace the entrance hall. I'm not sure yet how I'm going to finish it off, but it will have a much loved and used apperance!

As if these two fabulous kits were not enough, Claire sent me this beautiful pendant - to continue the French Theme! Isn't it amazing? I love it to bits, and have worn it almost everyday since it arrived. It always gets loads of compliments. There is a picture on the back as well, of the Eiffel Tower.

Please go and have a look at Claires blog if you get the chance. She works in teeny scales, and the amount of patience that she must have always amazes me.

Thank you Claire!

  2. Hi Liesl
    Thank you so much for the lovely compliment and I am so glad that you like everything. I love the idea of the horse being all worn and loved and in the entrance hall - that will be just wonderful.
