La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France. We chose it while on the road, moving home, from Ireland to France with 2 dogs and 7 cats in the car.
This blog began its insignificant life as a recipe book for friends and family who would ask me repeatedly for a recipe of this, that and the other.
Since then it has taken many different directions, like gypsies tend to do. Sometimes making a U-turn and revisiting familiar roads and taking a break when necessary.
You'll find recipes here, but also musings about the places we've called home, the gardens that we've established, not always successfully, the homes we've improved and the environments we've lived in. Currently, that is back in Ireland.

Properly Cheered Up !

Sometimes when the winter months drag on, I can do with some cheering up.
Suddenly you hear the birds chirping away in the morning hours and even the feeble rays of sunshine let you know spring is on its way.
By the time I got up this morning, Bert had already done a trip to the rubbish dump.   He asked if I wanted to come with him to the recycle shop - that is where you bring your unwanted items that are still in  good nick. They sell them for peanuts.

So that's where I found these beauties.

9 € we (Bert) paid for them.  The subtly coloured glass brightens up any place and makes me think of spring.
The kitchen door is wide open, as is a sitting room window.  Come on in, spring and cheer up our day !

Have a lovely weekend !
