  • Hello

    I've just found your wonderful forum, there is much to read

    Right about me, I moved to SW France about 15 months ago with my Great Danes and horses.

    I used to enjoy glass painting but it is hard to find suppliers of the paints here and being out in the countryside I find there is too much dust and my work was ending up covered while it dried.

    I started making wired jewellery last year, I especially like crystal beads and did make a website with the hope of selling pieces which did work for a while but I think the novelty wore off with friends, also I have to wait for my OH to go back to the UK to post them.

    I am thinking of starting up again but am also looking for inspiration for new crafts.

    Well you've came to the right place for inspiration (sometimes exasperation too).

        Thanks for the welcome

        Why did I move to France ???

        Well I came into an inheritance so came over a few times found a house and bought it, I've also bought all the land round me for the horses, also it means nobody can come along and build next door. I am quiet rural and only have one neighbour across the road and down the valley a bit. The people are so friendly and helpful, my French is not that good but with hand signals I get by and have a great laugh.

        The life is slower here and the eather is wonderful in the summer.
