An everyday home in French wine country with everyday Burgundian roof tiles.  Hey, it’s someone’s everyday home…

    These my idea of the perfect outdoor faucets. Something as important as water calls for wonderful dispensers like these. Like everything else – the French do everything in style!

  3. I like the lion fountain.

  4. TaDa! Indeed.I have an image of a Lion’s head roaring water ,too. It must be a tradition from where???

  5. Dan Antion says:

    Those are pretty cool.

  6. I will take that “everyday” home in a heartbeat!
    Lovely shots, Janet ❤

  7. For me, all you needed was the faucet. I LOVE that faucet. 🙂

  8. Sandra says:

    Oh I recognise that roof! 🙂

  9. Great finds. Love your taps (faucets)

  10. I notice your name is inscribed on the faucet stonework. A sideline business obviously. Congrats!

  11. Laura says:

    I like the roof tiles. I would not call that an everyday home, I would call it a castle.

  12. Beautiful. I do so love the idea and things that are ordinary, but are far from it. Sigh. For a society that believes things can be more than what they must be.

    • Before we moved, we lived for 28 years in a house built in the early 1930’s. There were so many lovely, loving details that now you would pay many dollars extra to get. It’s hard enough to get things done right and well these days, it seems like. Where’s the pride in craftsmanship that apparently was around then every day?

  14. K.Z. says:

  15. This is a very beautiful entry Janet.

  16. Wonderful collection of ornate objects. I love those roof tiles.

    I love the frame around the first picture Janet! It is so cool! Great entry!

  18. Inger says:

    I have to say – those Burgundian roof tiles are pretty spectacular! 🙂

  19. Tina Schell says:

    Hey, just cause the guy likes fancy………LOL!!!! Excellent choices Janet.

    • Glad you liked them, Tina. I’d love to have a faucet like this and the lion head is very cool. The “house” would be a bit large for me, no matter the style, but it’s certainly gorgeous.
