Our stay in a charming Chambre d’hôte.
A selfie in the lovely ornate french mirror.
Firstly I would like to thank you all for your comments on my last post on St.Tropez market. I really do appreciate hearing from you all. Blogging can be a lonely occupation.
More on our adventures in France. Above is the lovely Chambre d’hote in Chalon-sur-Saône where we spent the night on the way back to the UK. Our hostess was charming and cooked us a delicious dinner.
The pretty front garden shows a very old medieval well.
The beautiful french dresser in the dining room with lots of objects d’art. Almost certainly all purchased in the local Brocante.
The bedroom. I do so love french bedlinen. Anthropologie has a good selection with a french vibe.

The photo above shows me selling my old clothes at the local Brocante in France. It was great fun. I suppose the equivalent in the UK would be a car boot sale. Do you have anything similar in the USA?
Another way that I have been decluttering my wardrobe. As you know I have been on a mission to declutter my wardrobe. In the UK I have managed to recycle, give to charity or sell in second-hand shops most of the items that for whatever reason I no longer needed or wanted in my wardrobe. It has been a very cathartic experience and I now feel that my wardrobe in the UK is organised and manageable. I am also finding that I am more creative with putting outfits together.
I have identified some gaps in my wardrobe so will be adding a few new pieces for the summer over the next few weeks. With the increasing cost of living, I think that we are going to need to be selective in what we purchase. I have always favoured buying less and better quality. I would love to know how you will be restocking your wardrobes going forward. Do leave comments in the box below about how the current climate might be influencing future purchases.
