the potting shed

Hello!! A lot has changed since my last post. Now several things have been running through my mind during the long winter months. Do I open a brick and mortar?

Hello friends,
It’s hard to believe it has been one year already!
I thought it would be fun to repost my first post. I am so grateful for everyone and everything that has happened in this last year! Some goals have not yet been met, and some things have exceeded my expectations! I am thankful for all the people I have met, and the true connections to the online community that I would have never experienced in my little corner of the world.
Thank you for being a true inspiration and encouragement to me!

French Grey

Hello blogging world! Better late than never. This is an attempt at my first post. I have been  inspired by many amazing blogs as of late, and I hope to create something of equal beauty and inspiration.

Coming up with a name was somewhat of an inspiration in and of itself. I stumbled across a nice term for the tarnish that gets into the details of silver…..french grey.

It describes perfectly the things I love:

French farmhouse

Whites and greys

European grain sacks


Vintage finds…..and a simple life

Here are some great photos from Atelier De Champagne that have me excited to add a little more french grey to my home.

So imagine to my surprise finding images on pinterest of …
