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.

Love Spring


It may only be mid Febraury but the days are certainly getting longer and dare I say it.........warming up a little too. The thing I love about this time of year is yes, we will have one or two more cold snaps, but that's hopefully that is all they will be, just cold snaps.

I have had a couple of Mallard Ducks take up residence on the pond and a large white Heron, well actually according to Google it is a Great Egret (Ardea alba) and while we always have Grey Herons, this rather grand white bird is really very eye-catching and I do hope he is not catching too many fish out of the pond!

The picture on the left was created by a dear friend Sandi, and is available as a download for you to print, you will find it and more or her gorgeous work here at Printaphoria, do pay her shop a visit as it is full of wonderful and inspiring things an she is offering 25% discount to celebrate the grand reopening sale :)
