Take a Picture Tuesdays - Audinou

I found these pictures of the home of Audinou, author of the French food blog Ma Vie a Table.

I love this one of her bedside table, er, chair.  Love to see people making good use of available materials to answer their needs!

And this one of her dining room/office/library.  We in North America use "lack of space" as an excuse for not doing so many things.  I've been guilty of it myself a time or two.  But when I look around and see the big lives people are living in what we consider small spaces, I am inspired!

Isn't that the truth? So often we focus on the PROBLEMS and not the solutions. I love creating the solutions!!! That is my favorite thing.

Great post!

Happy day!

Thank you for posting that link. I've added her to my Bloglines and am pleased to discover that my rudimentary French has not entirely departed me.

That picture of her library is wonderful; that's what I hope to achieve in my next home.

I really enjoy your blog.

Melissa - You create solutions so well!

Lynn - Isn't it fun to find a new blog to follow?

And I'm glad you're enjoying mine!

So true. When I lived in Paris we were all broke and passionate. We were ignorant about the American dream or keeping up with the Johnses. I tell you it frees up a lot of things. Thank you for the great link.

Love the idea of a library in any room :) I particularly love the white table here as well.

Corine - I love that: "broke and passionate". Something to get back to maybe (only not really broke)?

Beth - I think libraries are good anywhere and everywhere, too!
