Episode 104- Campagne March 2015

imageJust rolled out of bed decadently late and grabbed this shot from the tulip bedroom.
Look at that sky!

For the restoration fans, the lethally lead painted shutters held together with string are going. They are so warped and sagging that they no longer shut. And that is just about the point  n’est ce pas?

Off to stir my slow-cooker chilli and fill some plasterboard joints and other sundry holes.

We have plenty of those

    Shutters are on my mind at the moment – our little Monument Historique de France has to have a correct colour … did you know that the door should always be 2-3 shades darker. I wish I didn’t – it makes it harder 😉


    • Fortunately we are not under auspices of “Batiments de France” but still have to keep Mairie happy.
      Have decided to keep front doors wood ( unpainted) but change my mind about b****y shutters everyday. were a typical but ugly brown, then we painted them pale greylilacblue then that colour was discotinued.. what a saga!
      As M Maire says they used to be blue think we should head back in that direction

        We thought we were going blue and now it seems to be green (rather nice retro yellowy olive rather than the sage I would probably have chosen) … night bluddy mare the whole thing and we are only just begun (after 2 years buying the place 😉 ) Bon courage mon amie! x


      • I like sage
        We clearly have much in common
        Like that retro olive shade, nearly chose that for our cooker
