Un Début Frais à une Nouvelle Semaine

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

A fresh start to a new week!

Ooh la la....I put a little "make-up" on my blog page this weekend. The hardest part was the decision on which background to choose because The Background Fairy offers so many choices! Thank you so much for your generosity, Karen,

Oh--My--Goodness...WHAT A SURPRISE.... when I visited with the vintage hag last night-- -- YES, I do love the color yellow and I did sip on that cup of hot tea with LEMON. Thanks for the "shout out" and for the all the little known facts about LEMONS.

It has been raining at the farm since early Friday morning, so I am redeeming the time by working on my Family Photo Gallery Wall. It is slowly taking shape because I am trying to find just the "right" photos to display. I'm the proud mama that thinks ALL her children and grand children's pictures are good, so there is an edit issue.

I finished up my front porch painting project last week and now it time for phase two--putting up new support columns and railings. That will be an ALL MONTH--maybe two--project. BUT, the DH has the backyard deck almost finished and progress IS taking place--just slowly. I am so excited to finally see some much needed outside repairs and remodels taking shape. I've been bogged down with so many inside projects that I am ready to get outside!

If you stopped by the farmhouse to visit today, please leave a comment. We love having company.

Au revoir

Hi, I like your new look on the blog. It is nice. Do you have a thing for roosters? The country looks so peaceful. I love it. TL

Yes, I love my roosters! I have a large variety of them. The slower paced, more peaceful setting of this country life has been good for me. I guess I have always been a "country gal" at heart. Thank you for the stopping by the farmhouse today. We love company.

Hi Jacque,

What a great "shoutout" from a fellow blogger.

I love the new look of your blog. It is difficult to decide on what to do when there are so many choices.

I am a rooster girl too. At one point I had to get rid of some as they were starting to take over. The kids used to tease me about them when they were young.

Don't work too hard!


P.S. God willing, there might be a little trip in the future. Besides grad day at Fort Jackson. We'll see if it is meant to be.
