Sometimes I just want to play French Farmhouse. Grange is the word for barn in French. In English it simply means a farmhouse with outbuildings. But it's mostly used in old stories with a gentleman farmer. Okay. Old story works for me.
I've thought of this setting for awhile, but now my ivy covered wall is going to start thinking of turning on me, and dropping its leaves, so now it is!
An old French farmhouse has piles of linen everywhere that are used every day, wicker, baskets, and tons of garden implements. Check, check, check, and one more small check. Some years ago my son brought me a green handled pitch fork for Mother's Day or my birthday. I hadn't asked for one, but he knew I would love playing gentleman farmer with it.
Everything has to look utterly ancient. Which is remarkably difficult to do, but I've given a stab at it. If you squint your eyes a little, and suspend your disbelief for a moment, you can play French Farmhouse along with me too. . . .
Now wasn't that fun?
We'll do it again sometime!
Ciao! for now!
