The front of the house and our little French car (the same one we had in Paris). She's almost 20 years old but still going strong!
The yard. We actually have about 2000 square meters of garden, but you don't see it all in this photo because at the back it goes down a hill and there is a big section that we lovingly refer to as the "wilderness" because no one ever tried to "reclaim" it and it's overrun with bushes, tall grass, weeds and all of the tall trees in the photo. Lionel is currently working on digging our potager to the side of the house and there is a disused little pond/water feature in the middle of the yard that I hope to restore one day.

My very exciting recent furniture purchase...an armoire I found on Le bon coin for only 90 euros! It's gigantic and leaves me room to grow and it's in great condition, made of wood (not particle board), and made in France! I love it and I was very excited to get it on Monday now that the bedroom is mostly finished.
The state of the living room upon our arrival in France in May
Looking from the living room into the dining room when we first arrived
The condition of the entryway and stairway upon arrival. So far nothing has changed and we still have wall paper to remove, walls to sand and holes to fill before painting.
The only decorative item in the house right now, flowers from our garden
And just because I think it's cool to have lizards in our garden, here's one that was climbing on the wall the other morning. I think he's the same one that lost part of his tail to Rasteau a couple of weeks ago.
