THAT FRENCH COUNTRY FARMHOUSE.............



                      Authentically French..............     This photo was taken back in the Fall
                 before the snow fell.  The owner of this home is a friend.  I asked her if I could do a story on her wonderful home and she said she would love it.  Would I mind waiting until she got home from Naples??????       We are about six weeks away and counting and I can't wait.    You are going to love it!





Her home is so authentically French and her collections are wonderful.  She too is a
designer and has been such an inspiration to me.   All of her landscaping is natural.  Wild flowers and praire grasses of all kinds...............Her accessories indoor and outdoor all vintage or antique.  Susie buys nothing new.


 
Prairie grasses surround her property landscaping a backyard man-made pond, birdhouses that reach for the sky and seating areas to ponder...............



               This is the inside courtyard with two wonderful lambs greeting you upon arrival.

                                                We shall return...................

This looks wonderful from the outside - I can't wait to see the inside. I love the field of prairie grass in front and the concept of not buying anything new is fantastic - we should all try to do more of it. Rush back from Naples!
