recommendations

can anyone recommend any european blogs to me? i'm particularly interested in france and england, blogs about homesteading, homeschooling, and life on those countries.

been busy making more tins! this first one was with a dilbert mint tin, they are shorter and wider than the altoid tins...it's a tooth fairy tin! inside sports a silk pillow hand sewn, stuffed with wool from our sheep and embroidered.
this next one is called wish! it has butterflies and angels on the outside and a make a wish collage on the inside. it is an altoid sized tin.available at etsy!

I usually read http://dalnd.blogspot.com/ in france and http://hedgewizardsdiary.blogspot.com/ in england. neither one are exactly what you are looking for, but they are interesting gardeners and might have some links to others with kids and homeschooling etc.

Have a look at mine and see what you think. I also have a herbal website, http://www.springfieldsanctuary.co.uk which has stories and poems as well as herbs etc

Some of the people who follow my blog also live in the UK and I think one is a homeschooler.
