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.

A fleeting and tender beauty

Walking down to see my horses this morning I was stopped in my tracks by this beautiful Apple Blossom.
The tree is an ancient Apple and the only ones who enjoy the fruit are my horses, however this blossom more than makes up for the rather small, bitter fruit - I hope you enjoy these pictures :)
