There she is! She arrived on Monday. Everything is wonderful. I must go now!

I'm so happy we are spending the week-end at my parents' house. I enjoy every single thing here. This old Cadbury's box is where we used to store the cocoa powder for hot chocolate during my childhood, I have seen it so much it feels like it's part of me.
I just love these animal sculptures by Clive and Sunshine (found via Mallory's lovely blog Where the lovely things are).
Have a great week-end everyone!

The family is getting bigger: meet Ansbert (top) and Landelin (bottom). They will be added to the shop next week.
Today is my last SALE day!
I love Nigel Peake's work.
Thank you for your lovely comments to my last post. I still haven't been to my parents' house so haven't really realised, but we'll see.
Have a sweet end of week-end now!

My mum just told me she hasn't seen Zoé for a few days, which is not usual, and so we think she has left to a secret place where she will rest forever -I think it's what cats do.
She was 18 so it's no big surprise, but it feels strange as she had always been my little companion. Everything is just right, I mean things happen when they have to. I just love her.
A little photo set is dedicated to her here.

I am quite busy and the commissionned illustration work I accepted a few months ago is actually happening now -luckily I feel good enough to work on it!
I made a little dress and another sleeveless cardigan. This is how I relax when I don't feel like working. I just can't not do anything.
I hope your week is good.

My mum gave me those 3 little baby shirts. I even might have worn them.
My man came back after 2 weeks on study trip, and everything is ready for Lou Mé now. We still have some painting and other things to do, but we have everything we might need with her when she's here. It feels good.

And don't miss the sale I'm offering in my shop -there are only 9 days left to take advantage of it :)

1. Lizzy Stewart's beautiful in Russia screenprint (you can find it here)
2. Jamie Shelman's cool marching band cat (you can find it here)
3. Blanca Gomez's sweet jazzman print (you can find it here)
4. Tali's my little friend pastel drawing (you can find her drawings here)
These are the prints and drawings I treated myself with recently (and I won the first one!). They are not hanging anywhere for now, I need to arrange a room first. I went to the post office this morning to get the last one from Tali, I love it (I like the stripes on the shirt, and like the idea of having such a little friend). The package was fun too, and there was a sheet full of bus stickers with it!
I hope your day is good.

I realised yesterday night in a sudden burst of anxiety that I should start packing the things I will need when leaving to maternity hospital. No need to worry though as everything is almost ready but still had the feeling that nothing is. So today I just made a bag (this has been on my to-do list for ages) that will carry all her things (I used this great tutorial -it's so easy I can do it!).
Have a great Sunday!

I love second-hand shops. This morning I found little pots, a second little plate, like this one, an old suitcase and inside of it was an old little card. It says "Mr & Mrs Léon Bignaud thank you and send their best wishes for the new year". Very nice surprise.
Have a great week-end everyone!

I'm still practicing crochet and making little clothes without tutorial -I just can't follow any, I must be unfit. I made a sleeveless cardigan and legwarmers, and have some nice new colours to work with.
I'm a hardworking girl but as you can see I don't mistreat myself (I found the plate under the chou à la crème at a flea market back in July).
Shakshuka is a sweet shop, I love their wooden toys (got this one!).
I love this poster (via Fubiz) and this is a fun way to show your portfolio (via Swiss Miss).
Thank you for all your comments and all your orders. I'm working on new things for fall and winter. Still 18 days to take advantage of the sales!
Have a great day now.
