First Snowfall

Happy December!

We got our first snowfall of the season last weekend!  The kids were so excited and, I have to admit, it did feel very festive.  I love the snow in December, but by January, I'm over it :)

I got out my camera and headed outside to snap a few photos of all the pretty snow.  I love it when the snow sticks to all of the branches on the trees...so magical...

And, since I still had a lot of product to shoot for the online shop, from our recent trip to France, I decided to try and photograph some of them at the old barn nearby.  My husband was a big help and we managed to get a few festive shots in before we froze!  There are still some wonderful items available in the SHOP, just in time for Christmas...here's a little peek...

Check the shop for many more vintage French items!

Wishing you all a blessed Christmas!

The Cook's Atelier

I had the absolute pleasure of visiting The Cook's Atelier, not once, but twice already this year!  Located in Beaune, it is one of the most charming places in France.  It is a darling 3 floor shop that encompasses a wine shop, culinary boutique and a French cooking school...run by the mother-daughter duo of Marjorie and Kendall.  You can read more about these lovely ladies and how they got started *HERE*

Here is a little peek around their shop...

looking down from the second floor...

The Cook's Atelier offers a variety of French cooking classes and workshops, including the one I attended, in June, "A Day in Burgundy."  This truly amazing day started out with a tour of the Wednesday food market in Beaune and was followed by a cooking class, where we learned how to make what we would later eat!  There was delicious cheese {oh how I love French cheese} and lots of wonderful French wine too :)  Everything was outstanding!  Here is a peek at their gorgeous kitchen...

the lovely table where we all gathered to eat the food that we prepared...

A shot of Kendall, while she was teaching our class.  I am in love with that Lacanche range!!  Did you know that the Lacanche ranges are made in Burgundy?!!...

The original location of The Cook's Atelier is now a darling pied-à-terre that is available to rent. It is a two bedroom apartment, just a short walk from where the new shop is.  My husband and I had the chance to stay there in May.  I adored everything about it!  It is bathed in light and filled with vintage charm, with every attention to detail made, in order to make sure your stay in Beaune is a beautiful one...

You can get more information about the pied-à-terre *HERE*

{More photos of the pied-à-terre and Beaune itself coming soon}

If you ever find yourself in Beaune, I hope you will take the opportunity to visit The Cook's Atelier and maybe even sign up for one of their cooking classes.  I can't recommend it enough!!!  The whole staff is incredibly warm and welcoming, and Kendall's husband, Laurent, makes the best coffee in France, so be sure and have a latte while you are there!  A big thank you to Marjorie, Kendall and Laurent for making my time at their beautiful atelier so very memorable!
