Sharon Santoni's New Book: "My Stylish French Girlfriends"

My French Country Home blog showcases the impossibly beautiful French life of Sharon Santoni.  Along with her gorgeous flower arrangements, the antics of her two dogs, her brocante tours, and her charming guest cottage, comes inspirational introductions to the French women she calls friends.  I have followed her "life as it should be" blog for many years and was thrilled when Sharon allowed me the opportunity to share some of the gorgeous photos of her debut book My Stylish French Girlfriends which showcases twenty of her girlfriends from different walks of life, some who live in grand châteaux, and others in charming little cottages or Parisian apartments.  It really is the must-buy book to curl up in bed with; add breakfast on a tray, or a cup of tea in a quite corner of your home, and you have the perfect beginning to a lovely weekend. - Jouir

"It is this insider's view, this private, discreet side to French living and to the French women I know that I wish to portray.   Women who work every day, with passion, who love to take care of their homes, their families, themselves."
-Sharon Santoni

"These portraits of women and homes show a side of France that visitors don't normally get to see.  I deliberately sought out women from all over the country...  Each girl friend was chosen because she has a story to tell and a great lifestyle to portray."
- Sharon Santoni
