Ducks are free

French obsession July 1st and Give away! 
Don't miss it!

We took the ducks to the pond...Few days later i saw them with a group of other ducks....I am glad they find some friends and are happy....

I sold my chickens....was very sad. They find good new owners. I hatched them and we raised them , they were so gentle and sweet.

I am ok, packing up...I know a lot of good things are coming...
Have a great day!

Fairy garden in a pot.

I have a Garden craft for you. My kids love it, my friends copied it and it makes me happy.

This is a very cute idea if you want a Fairy garden but don't have your yard finished like me. It is in a pot...

I planted strawberries and pansies as a base for the planting...
The other plants change has they die or stop flowering. You can keep the plants in their pots also if you want and plant them in your yard when they stop flowering like Perennials...

I made this cute sign years ago and attached it to a garden mini trellis...
I used acrylic paints.
The sign is a wood plaque  from the craft store i printed the words i wanted in a pretty font....Copied it on transfer paper
Painted the rest...

I plant one tall plant behind.....Smaller in front...

The Mums went bad so i replaced them...I replaced the tulips too...

Great plants next...Changing with the season...

Here they are now...

Happy gardening week-end !

I just had a Deer eating my flower pots......Darn it!

I am going to plant flowers at the front door of the house we are renting, the minute we get there....No Deers there!
I am very exited! I love flowers and for me, having a garden brings me a lot of Joy.
Love you all!

Stacey at fun to craft

Hello Le Chateau des Fleurs Readers!
Thank you SO much to Frenchy for having me over here today. It is always fun to take over a blog!! Here are the detes about me:
That is me, Stacey.I am the crafter over at Fun to Craft.
I blog to share tutorials, crafts, sewing projects, recipes,
frugal finds or tips, and host giveaways.

I have two crazy kiddos and a darling hubby who just graduated from law school and is in the throes of studying for the bar!! We have been on a thrifty budget so I try to make creative things that don't break the bank. I craft as my creative outlet because I think it helps keep me sane! I definitely dig home decor, sewing, crocheting, hand embroidery, spray painting, hot gluing and anything else I have to do to make that project just right.

Any of you who know about my blog know that I love me a Cricut project. Plus, add in some vinyl and I am in heaven! I showed you here how to add vinyl to your laptop. I also showed you how to create a fun easy gift idea here. I also gave some 'how to' tips on vinyl and cricut use here and here.

So here is another fun way to use vinyl: on tiles. These tiles can be purchased just at your home improvement store for way cheap. Then I wash them off really well so my vinyl will adhere to them better. I also heat them up in the oven for a few minutes just around 200 degrees. I have just found that this helps the vinyl stick to the tile and stay well.

Use some transfer tape or other adhesive product to transfer your design onto the tile. Trust me! It is SO much easier than eye balling it!
You can display it in a plate holder or easel. Easy and fun!!
I have a LOT of fun over at Fun to Craft and would love for you to join me! I have a 'Look at me, I am SO Crafty!' Link Party every Friday.
I love making new blogging friends and love to find new inspiring blogs to check out too. So come by, leave me a comment and I will come check out your blog too!!

Thanks again to Frenchy for having me over here today. She is too cute and since I am a HUGE lover of all things France....I just love her blog! I actually did a study abroad in France in college and love France even more now. So I am super glad that Frenchy shows us how a French girl does things!!

**There will be a giveaway this week too so come by and check it out!!

House tour. Living room.

Welcome to the living room...The walls are Chocolate brown and goes very well with the burnt orange/gold furniture and Aqua ceilings....

Love the couch. The front pillow has a cheetah fabric. Animal fabrics are used a lot in French designs.
We like them a lot. 

Tommy is in the most comfortable chair in the house of course.
The green Topiary tree on the table is used every Christmas has a Christmas tree.
It can go anywhere in the house.

The mantle is perfect for a 1700 Parisian style.
My collection of Toile vases on the fire place mantle. I use them all over the place and they make great center pieces. I use them with flowers for a party.
We use everything we have in France. It is very important. Things have to be beautiful and with a purpose....Sometimes more than one purpose.

This is the same Chandelier across the entry as the dining room. 
The mirror was purchases before i designed the house. I believe that if you only buy things you love. You will always find a place and purpose for everything.

The colors are harmonious.

Going to the dining room...

For paint colors, see my post about it.
