Frances is an mom we have admired for sometime, & a chance meeting in Round Top, has turned into a friendship. We love her style, thoughtful approach to life, & general kindness she exudes. She lives half of the time in her hometown of Houston, & the other in Nice, France.
We are so excited for you to get to know her in this month's home story!

this space:

our dining room is combined with our living room. I spend every morning here with coffee and my journal, then it becomes my desk during the day, and by night it is a table to gather around for meals with friends.

what story do you want your home to tell?

Especially living abroad, home is our haven, a respite from the busy-ness of a culture far from our own. Our home is filled with memories and mementos from around the world that each have stories behind them. I think I learned the love of treasure collectingfrom my grandmothers. I’m very sentimental.




Never my love-the dip

Browned butter blondies. No matter who pops in, this recipe requires pretty basic pantry staples that I usually have on hand.

gift to give:

I collect little things from the antique market here in Nice and keep them on hand…small oil paintings, silver teaspoons, champagne coupes.
