Hello! Welcome to Rue du Belvedere!

For those of you who don't yet know me, I'm Becky...crafter, sewer, blogger, business owner, garden enthusiast and chicken keeper. In 2013 I moved from London to a small village in the Tarn-et-Garonne region of South West France with my husband Andrew and 2 young boys, Reuben 5 and Jacob 2. For the past year I've been blogging as 'La Famille Brown', where I have been documenting our move and writing about how we've settled into village life. In my first year of blogging I learnt so much (with a little help along the way) and I soon realised that I wasn't going to be able to take 'La Famille Brown' in the direction I wanted to...hence the new look, new name and new focus of the blog!

Every week of each month I will be writing posts around one of these four life, France, food, sewing and crafts. I'll be finding the subtle differences in family life having moved from town to country. We'll be discovering places to visit in our beautiful new home and will continue to look at how we adapt to expat life. I'll be cooking up some delicious seasonal foods, opening my recipe books and making a mess with kids! And I'm hoping to finally realise my handmade wardrobe ambitions and craft making for all the family.

I hope you'll take the time to read my blog and let me know what you think!
