Rubrique : just like that

Dreams come true (act 2)

robe-susie

Just a few more adjustments and everything will be perfect. The dress that I was talking about here is about to exist for real. And not only for Susie, who is posing here for you with the first prototype … just to keep you waiting !

Soeur Alma from C’est dimanche designed a very pretty dress, with a vintage feeling and a perfect cut. I couldn’t hold myself from adding some flowers and colours (you know me!). Thanks to Corentine from Motif Personnel, the kit (pattern + fabric) will finally become real.

patron-robe

By the way, with Sister Alma we finally decided to do 3 sizes : 2, 4 and 6 years old. Also in 5 differents designs, because it was way too hard to choose only one …
The pattern will be printed directly on the fabric, it’s easier this way. But if it’s still too complicated, you’ll have the possibility to order it already sewed.

We keep you posted as soon as we’re ready!

(Français) Ouvrir la cage aux oiseaux…

L’année dernière lorsque Anne-Christelle de Lilli Bulle m’a confié la réalisation de sa vitrine sur le thème du printemps, j’ai eu envie de l’envahir de mes p’tits oiseaux.
Alors je suis allée voir un monsieur qui tient une imprimerie “à l’ancienne” avec des machines belles comme des locomotives à vapeur et des pots de confiture remplis de couleurs si fraîches qu’on les mangerait bien.

Mes oiseaux sont sortis de l’imprimerie avec 6 jolies couleurs de plumage et ont volé tout droit vers Lilli Bulle :

Mais depuis tout ce temps, pas moyen de les prendre en photo ! Ils bougent tout le temps !!! Normal pour des oiseaux, me direz-vous…
C’est pour ça que vous ne les avez pas encore vu par ici. Mais comme depuis un an, ils plaisent beaucoup et avant qu’ils ne soient tous envolés, je me décide à faire un billet à leur sujet…

My last holidays seem to be pretty far away today, with so many great projects on their way, and despite being tired, none are planed yet…

So I am staying in Paris, and I am traveling throught those beautiful posters from  The Heads of State and Bianca Gomez. They are from our days, but they remind me the posters from the old days, like the ones of Air France that were in my grand-father’s study …

What about you? What is your dream destination?

April fool’s day

1er-avril-2010

The tradition got lost in favor of the practical jokes, but a century ago, the 1st of April was an opportunity to wish many good things, as you may do for new year… So best wishes !!!

Postcard from this album.

At last!

fleurs-20-mars

I cannot believe how long this winter was!
I have never been so eager to see the first sunny days of spring arrive…
Still, now it’s the end of the spring that I’m waiting for, because if everything is going well, along with the first summer days … a baby will should arrive !

So, to celebrate both good news, here is a new desktop wallpaper!

(For large and normal screens)

Mine (not for real)

a-moi

A flowery carpet, a gold thread around my finger, a brand new phone that looks like an old one, cute animals as hangers, a sofa as beautiful as a painting and a bucolic small frame, those are my wishes “du jour”…

Small ideas big impact

To decorate a house / our house doesn’t have to be complicated, or even expensive … It all begins with a couple of little things here and there, that will make you want to go further.

The magazine “Maison Creative asked me to follow this path on four pages of easy and quick ideas. Here are a few examples.

Boxes and lids left aside were covered with nice printed paper. Or how a match box became a little jewelry box.
In the kitchen baby milk boxes have a new use.

You will find more ideas in the january / february issue, now in the news kiosk.
