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.

No Way Back !

A new addiction has cropped up and there is no way back from this !
My mother was rather impressed with my bargain buy I posted about here . So, yesterday we went into one of the many Recycle Shops in the area.
Lo and behold, I acquired some great finds .... again.




What am I going to do with them ? No clue just yet, but pretty things don't really need to be useful, do they ?
I have also bought a coffee table for Bert's office for 5€.  I will show it to you in a later post.

Now, does anyone have any idea how I can get that thingamajig out of the perfume  bottle ?

Maybe I'll see you at one of the Recycle Shops ;-)

  1. I love vintage stuff, particularly glass. I envy you . . . I had to put a stop to going to charity and second hand shops because I haven't got anywhere to put things any more. Sigh!
