Russian doll


A little Rosalie was born a few days ago…
Her parents commissioned me for a birth annoucement that will refer to their slav origins..
Here is the result. I like it so much that I am thinking of including it in the collection. What do you think ?

Jim Denevan




This man makes freehand drawings in sand. With a stick as a pencil, he draws and walks for miles. He must be crazy because when tide is coming in, everything will vanish.

It remains pictures for us to dream and think that is what art is all about : being crazy…


I just come back from a short break. There, I had the chance to visit a place which I wanted to visit for a very long time. I walked on this fabulous floors :



I will send a little surprise to the first one who will guess where I found those nice patterns… Any idea ?

Elodie had the correct answer : it takes place in Pompeii in the Villa of Mysteries. But it would be nice also in a modern home, don’t you think ?

As good as it looks





Grocery shopping is much more fun when supplies are so pretty…
Here is some treasures that I brought back from my day trip to London with Emilie.

Why are the English so good at packaging ?

Products purchased at Waitrose, Marks and Spencer, and Fortnum and Mason.

Petite cuisine


Weather is getting colder, so even shelves dress up !
I have decorated the shelves in the studio’s kitchen with those “garden kitchen style” new origami papers.


It is very easy to make, but, still,  here is some explanations here.


18 sheets. Size 12 x 12 cm. Shipping fee included.


Shadow land


We’ve all had fun making shadow puppets with our hands in front of the light to draw a rabbit or a bird, right ? (If not try, it’s so easy!)

Shadow puppets may be as old as the hills, it still remains fascinating. So when it’s done by Pilobolus‘ danse company, it’s just hypnotizing.

While waiting for the occasion to see them “for real”,  have a look here.

Les minots


I’ve always loved children’s books. When I was a child of course, but even now that I’m not a child anymore.
I spend lots of time in the librairies youth bookcases. I try to convaince me that it’s for my daugther, but only a fool would believe that…

Therefore I am a huge fan of Les Minots bookstore ! I was thrilled when they asked me to install a temporary window (it will be removed on October the 15th). Here is a picture to catch a glimpse:


Taking such a picture is not the easiest thing!
So you’d better go to Les minots. Linda or Virginie will be happy to advise you on many great books, and if you come on Wednesday, you’ll see me running a workgroup for kids (beginning at age 5). We will make colorful garlands!
