Wild Life


Bonjour et Bienvenue `a My Little Paris



We were staying at the farm for a couple of days this week.....working on the cottage/cabin/garage.....which will, from this day forward, be known as " the cottage." It's really coming along. We're putting horizontal tongue and grove boards on the walls like I have in the boutique.....there's just something so cottagey about that look. I think the whole place is going to be charming, and such a lovely setting for the shabby chic/cottage look that always makes me feel so at home. The rooms are small and quaint, with a wood burning fireplace and a covered veranda, and we're planning for a screened in sun room and a little garden and patio by the back door. Everything is "small" and seems so doable. I'd like curtains on the windows.......and a soft colour palette. The floors will be in ceramic tile but there'll be lots of area rugs, especially in the wintertime.


Just the other day we were sitting outside in the sun, having coffee and we noticed a deer in our coulee, being bothered by what we thought were two coyotes .........turns out, there were three.....and they weren't coyotes but were fawns. The deer had triplets.....so unusual, and it was really something to see. She's such a busy mom lol.  Those babies have her running every which way as she tries to keep track of them and keep them safe. On the downside of wildlife.......a coon got into the BBQ last night and we caught a mouse in a trap in the camper.......I guess one has to learn to take the good with the bad hahahahaha
Life at the farm is certainly going to be different. I'm a city girl at heart......but I love the big open spaces and the eternal quiet that goes with life there. I do find myself wondering if the wind will ever stop blowing or if the grass will ever stop growing......but on and on it goes lol. We've relisted our lakehouse and I'm hoping someone will see it and love it like we do.



In the meantime, there's life at the boutique, where I get to dress up and be surrounded by the things I love. It's my chance to get off the riding mower and be the girly girl that I sometimes like to be lol. Hope to see you there tomorrow.......


As always.....
