Making the Most of Brocante Home...
I have been writing here for fifteen years and in the blog I hope you will find joy, comfort and a wealth of homemaking knowledge.
A collection of lovely, gentle, seasonal writing, planner pages, courses and more to help you build a life less ordinary of your own.
Who I Am...
Hello, I'm Alison.
Writer * Library-Lover * Mum + Step-Mum * Housekeeping Obsessive * Peri-Menopausal Mad-Woman * Occasional Pot Noodle Eater.
Yep. I think that just about sums me up, but if you want to know more, then hop over to my About Page as there I have gathered a few more things you might want to know as you puzzle your way through the blog, so I have introduced the family cast, added a resume of sorts and shared my favorite things.
Above all else I want you know that I am just like you: I get muddled and get things wrong. My mood varies and while I'm usually a domestic Goddess, I occasionally lapse into Waynetta Slob category because some days life is for living, not cleaning!
I am a total homebird, cherish my lovely community here at BrocanteHome and truly believe we can change the world, one home at a time...
