Today Jean-Marc and I headed out to the local forest to see what kind of greenery we could scavenge for decoration. We spotted some honeysuckle vines in the forest and Jean-Marc immediately saw the potential. We made two spheres, as well as a wreath, and when we got them home we put lights inside. One sphere is sitting on top of our armoire in the bedroom and the other is in the living room. I like the effect of the natural branches and the lights, and it's a nice alternative to a Christmas tree (which we didn't really have the room for).
I am a Canadian who has always had a love affair with France. Instead of waiting until retirement to move there, I decided to pack up and start a new life in the country of my dreams, sooner rather than later. This blog is a collection of my experiences, thoughts, recipes and travels as I make the transition. (The photos are courtesy of my MacBook built-in camera.)
