I don’t normally blog on a Sunday.  Today however, is an exception!  This past week has been chilly, autumn has most definitely arrived and with it the delicious warmth of a fire in the evenings, and what better way to enjoy cosying up by the fire than with a fantastic new book.  I am of course talking about Sharon Santoni’s “My Stylish French Girlfriends”.

This is an absolute must for anyone who loves France and all things French.  Sharon, who writes the enormously popular blog My French Country Home, has toured some of her friends houses from Normandy to Provence and in turn her friends have invited her inside to photograph them at work and play, it is unposed and very natural with stunning photography and offers a wonderful glimpse into the lives of some very inspirational French ladies.

When I first started writing this blog Sharon helped me with a lot of great advice.  We were total strangers and yet she was incredibly kind, chatting to me on the phone and offering all sorts of words of wisdom.  She is such a lovely lady and I encourage anyone who loves France to go out and buy this, if you haven’t already done so!  But be warned, jobs will lay unfinished as it is just impossible to put down and you may end up wanting to redecorate your entire house, re-landscape your entire garden or move, lock stock and barrel, to France!
