I want to be at Jane's French Table

And breathe . . . .

Hello lover! What I would do for a sitting room like this . . .
And these chairs! I don't think K-Rudd's bonus would even cover a leg of one of these beauties!

Oh to fall asleep under one of these trees with a good book and a blanket

Mirror mirror on the wall . . .

The gorgeous girls at work spoiled me for my birthday with the most amazingly beautiful and breathtaking gift of Jane Webster's coffee table book cross journal cross recipe book cross photo album - At my French Table. It's seriously the most stunning book I've ever laid eyes on. Jane is my hero - just your average Melburnian who followed her dreams.

With a passion for all things French, Jane and her husband uprooted their lives and packed up their kids for a new life in Normandy. What an adventure. Each and every page of the book is written with heartfelt honesty and the images behind the text are an absolute delight. It's such a privilege to be able to get this insight into the adventures of the average Aussie family tackling a far from average challenge.

Jane runs a cooking school from the chateau the family now calls home - can you just IMAGINE a weekend in the grandeur of the photos above?
