I will be starting to share some of my favourite seasonal cooking with you ,just as I do with my husband and friends. Cooking for me is a daily affair ,I do not regard it as a chore , it is a part of me...

I have patined the wood of this somewhat ordinary armchair and used antique sack fabric (used to store flour) for the upholstery.  Gilding wood in an unconventional way ,sanding ,waxing to age.  Old nails to keep the fabric in place. See the result for yourself!...

Antique metal stencil plate helps protect the wall from the door handle....

Patined plaster ,electrical switch covered by old letters found in Albi flea market...

Douceur des roses , des bruns dilués , des ors patinés...
