Going Green to Spring Clean ~ The French Way

As "going green" has gain more social acceptance, it has occurred to us that this is something that Le Bourdon Home & Garden has embraced as its central theme since its inception. By default, LB has adhered to the French lifestyle which has always been rooted in its natural surroundings. All of its centuries old methods of soap making and cosmetics have not changed and are still using all natural ingredients. More importantly, because we have a love for everything old, we strive to reinvigorate textiles and antiques so that they can be revered and discovered all over again by new generations!

In addition to our French line of products, we have embraced US-based Mrs. Meyers Clean Day products, too. For a limited time, we are offering their rhubarb scented spring cleaning kit as our way of promoting a green cleaning season this spring!
Make sure you learn more about all of our "green" French products, too!

Winter Doldrums ~ Mourning Curiosities

The winter doldrums are upon us and we are longing for the breezes of summer. We look for anything starting to think about coming up from the ground for a sign of Spring. Although the winter months of hibernation are good for the soul, mourning can be healthy too. When we take time to mourn, we can stop and appreciate what has gone past us and appreciate what is upon us.

I find that the winter months are essential to take notice of our interior space. Once the spring and summer months are here, we focus our creative efforts on what is outside. This is why I am providing a little sale to help to inspire some nostalgic embellishments and put you in the mood!

Hurry! The Winter Doldrums Storewide Sale lasts only 1 week!
