About Me

dsc_0067

“My Country Epoque.” is a panorama of how we like to live. 

I have heard that this is the page everyone clicks to when they find your site.

I grew up with sun, sand, sea, islands in a traditional home with all the French tastes of my ancestors passing down from one generation to another.  And growing up from an Anglican Christian tradition, education was the priority of my family. 

I’ve been a professional mum for some 25 odd years. I have a passion for decorating my home with the antique and vintage pieces I have collected over the years, as well as an adoring passion for gardening.  Cooking is my other big story, our kitchen is my best place in the home.  

I am mother to my one and only daughter, and now that she no longer needs a full time mum, and has started to expand her wings and broadening her horizons, I am devoting more of my time to my couture and vintage brocante venture which I will share on the blog from time to time.

My blog is where I write about our life in Britain and in the French country.  It is about my long passage from island girl to city girl, and to domestic country life. Through blogging, I’ve also discovered a new-found obsession for photography. Being creative has always been a big part of my life in one way or another and something I feel inclined to do.

I have always loved city lifestyle, but for now I have a dream and slowly realizing it and I am living the dream too at the same time.

I have many goals, and I believe that if you work hard you can make things happen.  This blog is my place for me to express that. Thanks for visiting!

Welcome to My Country Epoque!

P.S – Please do not nominate me for any awards of any sort!  I would appreciate if you could kindly respect my opinion.  Thank you!

I do love your blog and the beautiful ideas you have created in arrangements, etc. The pictures are beautiful and i can only imagine how lovely it is in person. I am just now beginning to decorate and your site has inspired me to get going on the project! I pray you have a wonderful Christmas. Linda

I love anything creative done by myself. I am always thinking of what to do next haha! The candles holders in picture are my first Christmas decor and I am thinking how I am going to do the rest. I am going to your website to read about you and what you write. once again, it’s been nice meeting with you and we will continue to communicate.

      • This past weekend my granddaughter and I made a Christmas lantern decoration out of picture frames with a flicker candle, balls and garland in the enter. She put a lid on hers and put fairy wings on the sides of the top. We had a great deal of fun finding the materials and then hot gluing them into place. It was the first such project that I had done with her and I imagine that we will embellish on it in the future. I might have her look at your site for some decorating ideas! Blessings to you today and during this Christmas season.

      • awww, thank you Linda. I am so happy that you and her enjoyed doing the little projects together. Yes it is so fun doing them. You know when it comes to decoration, you can use anything that you have in the house before you just go out to spend the money. Just look around if you have an old teapot that you don’t want to use, and get it done as a flower vase, or a bowl or small plate you can use the green flower foam, and cellotape it round the plate then just make your floral arrangement. You can also purchase a roll of the cellotape at the florist if you want cause it is made for this purpose. make sure you soak the foam in water for a lil while. Also you can get some wooden old boxes at thrift stores, then keep some of the jars you purchase that have like pasta sauce, wash them and keep them after you have used your sauce. and whenever you want to make your floral arrangements, put water in them and let them sit in the wooden box and just arrange your flowers in them. there are lots of various ways you can do things and not go for a big shopping. Well thank you for following my blog. I am so glad you did. I hope you have posted them on your blog. Will go check them. Have a wonderful week. hugs from my girl and me.
