The bed was hanging from the ceiling. The bedspread was black and white with a punch of pink. Do you recall this particular bedspread? If so, do you remember what company it is from?

Your photos are great. From my trip there i brought back beautiful little knives, spoons and napkins from just one of the many kitchen shops i saw in Paris. I can use these things every day and be reminded of France.
Can’t wait to see what you find at your local outdoor food market, we bought this divine homemade raspberry syrup that made delicious tall fizzy drinks. And look for butter from Ile de Re; it had little chunks of salt in it and is amazing with home made jam on a baguette.

That piece of artwork made my heart melt! Is it one of the owners own? If so, are there others that would be for sale?!?

We rent in Bydgoszcz, Poland, but are lucky enough to also have a US mail address here. It was quite an adjustment moving here, but we’re settling in nicely.

Do you have a Carrefour or Auchan near you? They are great one-stop-shops for groceries, household items, etc. I took advice of neighbors and froze a few flats of strawberries over the summer so we would have them all winter. Luckily, I’ve found strawberries, blueberries and raspberries in the frozen aisle at Auchan (a French store here in Poland). Oh, and enjoy the yogurt, it’s soo much better in Europe. Good luck in your frozen fruit search. :o)

She’d make it even more stunning! Neighbors? cows and pigs?
So many happy discoveries! Continue to Seize the day!

C’mon…show us a bit more…we’re all drooling here.
Tell us about FOOD. And the neighbors. And all your parlez-vous-ing (the sum of my french knowledge). And what each of the kids are thinking about the grand adventure so far…..

Maybe this is the next Ask-Design-Mom question: How to balance beautiful items the adults love with the wear and tear of children?

Love the subject, love the texture. I am always drawn to art that has that sculptural treatment. How fantastic to live in an artist’s house…I always seethe with some jealously when I see house upon house upon house with fantastic art and happy walls–the homeowners are interminably artists.

Not only are your children gaining an amazing experience from living abroad, they are living with art! Art is such a wonderful way to open the heart and mind to impossible possibilities. What a treasure!
