I wanted to take a few minutes to mention my mom’s blog Antiques from France. She travels to France a couple of times a year to buy amazing antiques and brings them back to California to sell. As my stepfather would say, “What a life!” She has a beautiful house outside of Bordeaux in a tiny village. I’ve been lucky enough to go with her twice on these trips and it’s truly amazing. Her village is so quiet and peaceful and so different from the fast paced life most of us lead. In her blog, she discusses life in France and her travels around the beautiful countryside of the Dordogne, her crafting and interesting finds she’s discovered at the brocantes. In the future I’ll be posting about my past two trips with her to France.
