Welcome to Cette Petite Maison


My name is Carol-Ann and I am a maker and crafter of all kinds of things and with Cette Petite Maison (This Little House) I hope to share a little bit of my life here in the beautiful rural Quercy Blanc area of France and introduce you to some of my neighbours and their wonderful produce.

I am trying a embrace a simpler lifestyle, working towards sustainability so I am offering a small range of items, made, grown and harvested locally by neighbours and friends and I hope that the phrase Products with Provenance resonates.

If you would like to follow along, it would be lovely to have your company, just add your name and e-mail to Follow my Blog below, and I promise not to inundate you with too many posts.

On a cold January day

Good morning :)

Well it is a grey, chilly and damp day here today, which is to be expected mid-January, although I much prefer the freezing but sunny days as we had yesterday, the weather is very changable in this part of France an we never really know what it is going to be like from one day to the next especially at this time of year.

So to warm us all up here is a photo from last Summer, a Sun drenched day in Marie-Hélèn's Lavender Field.

And because it is so cold........She knits..........Who knew :)

Loom Knitted hat using Caussenard & Noire du Vealy wool
Here is one of the Hats I made with wool from Marie-Hélèn's Caussenard Sheep (The ecru wool) and Noire du Velay (The brown wool)
 
This one is a Brithday Present for a friend, I hope she finds it useful :)
