Work in progress......

It may be sunny and gorgeous and the garden is very inviting....but....the renovation continues!! At last the fireplace we bought last year has been installed...








..it was a little more complicated than we originally planned. We had to break in to the kitchen chimney on the other side of the wall to insert the log burner pipes. The stone chateau walls are at least 2 feet wide so it was a tough job. But voila......





it is finally in place!!!


Do you remember the church lights I truffled out a few weeks ago? They look wonderful at either side....


Now all I have to do is get out the wax and polish the wood!!


Any helpers out there?


A la prochaine mes belles
bisous!!

    1. Funnily enough they have been begging me to compete in the Olympics but I cannot find my stick with the ribbon on it or my ballet pumps, my discus is being used as a door stop, my javelin has a clematis growing up it, I refuse to wear a cycle helmet as it will mess up my hair,I cannot do the long jump as I hate sand in my pants and I haven`t hurdled since I got chased by a wasp last year.
      Sadly they are going to have to go ahead without me.................
