  1. I've been following this project for a few years now on Flickr and it's amazing what Irene and Fabrice have accomplished, I'm constantly blown away by both the beauty and productivity of their site and systems. Homesteading with an old-world continental flavor. Thanks for sharing their work, it deserves to be seen by a wide audience!
