July 22, 2016, posted by Gina – It is a bit ironic that I love and try to emulate the French Country look at every turn in my home when Michelle is living right in the middle of France.

I poured over this book more times than I should admit but the clean, fresh style is just so appealing to me.

When we found our home my mind started churning with ideas and thinking about what items would or would not work in our new home. One of the things that I felt just had to go were the planters by our front door. When our landscape architect was helping me with the design of our yard, I told him I wanted large olive jars to go there instead. I even told him to just take away what we had until we could find the right planters. He urged me to keep the ones we had until he could find the right ones. Four years later, I finally have beautiful olive jar planters in front of my home. Now to decide what to plant in them…
