Market Day In Provence - COMING HOME Part 3

It's market day in Provence! So grab your basket and please join me over at My French Country Home for the next chapter in Sharon Santoni's charming summer story.

Sharon and I have been loving your response to our collaboration, thank you so much for all your kind comments and messages. Sharon's stories are always a delight, so it's been a pleasure to imagine the world of one of her heroines. This week's illustrations are also available for purchase. Please contact me right away if you see something you like - the first message received gets first dibs on the paintings, and several have been quickly snapped up since the story began.

Have a wonderful week, everyone! XO

Happy Monday, all! Thanks so much for the enthusiasm for the summer story collaboration between Sharon Shantoni and I. From your comments, it's sounds like you're as hooked as I am on Sharon's charming tale about Catherine who unexpectedly inherits a house in Provence. I hope you'll join me over at My French Country Home to find out what happens next. Chapter Two has just posted and Catherine now possesses the keys...

Won't it be fun to learn what this home in Provence looks like inside when Catherine unlocks the doors?

I failed to mention last week that the artwork that accompanies Sharon's delightful words is available for purchase.  The painting of the house in Provence has already been sold, but if you see anything you like as the story unfolds, please let me know.

Happy reading! XO

Coming Home, A Summer Story and Collaboration wth My French Country Home

The dream of a house in France... the rhythms of a small village. The flavors, sights, scents and sounds that heighten the senses: the freshest tomatoes on market day, a field of lavender, a cicada symphony as night falls. The perfect escape - one that could be life changing. This summer I hope you'll join Sharon Santoni from My French Country Home and I as we imagine what happens when one unexpectedly inherits a house in Provence....

Sharon's My French Country Home is a favorite escape for so many of us - a glimpse into a beautiful life in France. Flowers, brocante shopping, a celebration family life, of small moments and inspiring style.  Sharon takes gorgeous photos and has a way with words - her first book, My Stylish French Girlfriends makes it's much anticipated debut in August.

But it's Sharon's short fiction that really takes me away.  Always charming, always thought-provoking, but at the same time comforting. Her characters seem like real people who you might actually sit down with for a chat. So what a thrill when Sharon asked me to help her bring her latest story to life with a few illustrations...

Sharon has imagined a story about a woman who may not be much different from people you know... who you might easily have as a friend. I hope you'll join us each week to find out what happens to her as she lives this dream of coming home to France...

A huge thanks to the lovely Sharon for asking me come along on this adventure. I understand thanks to Heather from Lost in Arles are also in order, for edits along the way.

Happy summer reading, all! XO
