I was perusing some blogs and ran across one I haven't seen before & am wondering how could I have missed it. Stephmodo is a great blog with lots of pretty pictures, great ideas and yummy looking recipes (maybe it will help solve my worst question ever problem) Anyway, she & her husband have bought a 400 year old cottage in France (pictured below- no really it's the one pictured below the one next to the castle & the view) and they are renovating it!
I am not jealous at all /sarc.
It sits right next to a castle and just look at those views.
Did I mention the view? Apparently on the drive up one of the many views is of another castle the same one seen in one of my all time favorite movies, the same movie that got me through my first month of marriage & no cable- ie Ever After
You must go and read about how they acquired it. And to see the darling picture of her kids playing on the hill next to the castle.
Here is a photo of a wall they just recently uncovered, I want to live there, even with the dirt floor.
