Torchon Love!

Torchons {Dishtowel/teatowel}....a personal favorite in my household. They are the first thing I notice when walking towards a barn sale in Provence, flea market in Normandy or open air marche in St Tropez.

A favorite tongue in cheek French saying:
"Ne pas mélanger les torchons et les serviettes."

Literal translation: "do not mix dishtowels with napkins,", which means classifying and treating people + items differently according to their perceived value or class. Said another way, not mixing things of different kinds, indicating  that some are superior. Well thank goodness we're living in THIS century and HOPEFULLY we mix away both our items and our people!

When dealing with inanimate objects, it's a pretty common and funny French saying. Never more evident than in the house of Gran Palais in the Warhol exhibit wherein the curator demanded that Yves Saint Laurent's portraits NOT appear side by side with other fashion designers. "One mustn't mix dishtowels with napkins," he said, before asking to have the paintings moved to the artists section. Quel Horreur!

Cote Bastide Numbered Tea Towel

While the dishtowel was once perceived as a rag used for domestic chores by domestic help, the love affair with the old textiles is strong. They now garner center stage!  We love mixing the old, shown above, with the new, shown below.

Quite excited to bring these new beauties to you, made just outside Paris by our friends at Torchons et Bouchons in Paris, France.  High quality canvas cotton, they are washable and food combatible.

Now online at or by calling 332.932.0451. $36/ea or save by taking home all four offered. More coming soon!

Inspiring Potagers' Cookbook

*If you're a Facebook friend (JOIN HERE), then you know we're all abuzz about French potagers, English raised beds and all around planting your healthy bounty of vegetables and herbs!

This still shot from the Nancy Meyers' film, IT"S COMPLICATED, inspired me to do more than just a few heirloom tomatoes in pots and urns filled with herbs:

I began the journey by taking away a chunk of yard, which is at a PREMIUM when you live by the beach so this was not taken lightly. Once completed, I've not regretted one blade being gone!
Double over chicken wire to keep those pesty Bill Murray arch enemies out, the elusive gopher!

Mixing manure and other fertilizers is not pleasant to the nose, but the gratitude from your plants does pay off!

Irrigation is key for someone like me who travels outside the Country a lot.

The end result: a modest and simple raised beds that packs a whollop with favorites like French Sorrel, Heirloom Tomatoes, Lemon Cucumbers, Watermelon and Hericot Verts!
