I was a little disappointed with this book. I love country French style decorating, but just didn't think this book had very good examples. I did find one good idea out of the book; an example of stringing old postcards together with coordinating ribbon.

I just received this book as a gift from another Francophile - we have been enjoying this book page by page! It is filled with easy ways to bring a creative French feeling into your home. Bravo to French General - I can't wait for the next one!
