I am Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict...a "prof en retraite"...a retired French teacher! I love anything French. I even tried retiring early and living in France for a year, but the birth of my grandson pulled me back home…and now I have two more! But I had wonderful memories of my time there so I decided to create my own little corner of France right here in my own home. I began collecting and creating things that remind me of the warm, sunny colors of Provence…thrifting and repurposing, always with a French accent...and sharing my journey with you as I go. Now I have the best of both worlds...reminders of my life in France and my sweet family near-by! My other babies are my 4 cats, one of whom lived in France with me and "speaks" French!
