Get to Know

I am English and have lived in France with my family for over 5 years now. The area of France where I live is very rural and, although there are beautiful mountains to walk in or ski down, huge lakes to swim in and acres of unspoilt forested land, it is still relatively unknown so there are never too many tourists. When I'm not driving my daughters around or dog/cat/chicken whispering, I spend my time in this peaceful place creating things that I hope people will like and rummaging around in forgotten corners of deep, dark French brocantes or lively flea markets to see if I can bring some lost treasures to light!
