Rubrique : nice surprises

D Day -24


Christmas is in 24 days ! Some will think it’s too long, some others will so much to do that it will arrive too soon…

For both, from now on and until Christmas eve, on this blog you’ll find a pattern to download for free. Print it and do whatever you want : giftwrap, holidays card, enveloppe, origami…

Please note : the pattern will be available for download just for one day ! Tomorrow, it will be a new one…


No scoop, but here is an interview about the parisian girl I am…


Sans titre - 25

Time has come to launched the next novelty production. This will be a memory game with my sweet little Marouschkas!

I dreamt it with nice thick cards in a colorful box. Easy and pretty to tidy up!
I know from my own experience that it’s a game that lasts. You can have fun whether you’re old or young. I’ve already played many times with Susie (not yet 3 years old…) and it’s not always the one you would think who wins…

But why I am telling you that when it will only be available in december ? So the eager ones to have it can get it for a lower price. The 30th of november the price will be up to 17 euros…

Box with 40 cardboards size 44x44mm.
Delivery in the first days of december 2009 at the latest


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 ?

What a suprise!

Who could have guessed I’d be one day on Decor8 ?


Since the beginning I have this blog in my “blogs que je lis” list. You know it for sure. Like about 25000 people (yes that’s correct, you read the right amount!) I discover Holly Becker’s finds day after day and it’s a never ending inspiration. So I’m the proudest girl do be part of it today. It’s like being a kid and having your own drawing showed off to the whole class.
Thank you so much Holly!





I had never realized how french my interior could look, seen by foreigners (here you can see my past appartement and some pieces of my present studio). Holly has asked her readers about that topic and, as you will read, you will find out some quite amusing and unexpected answers!

So here is a “before&after” to celebrate this event and just for the treat (I love looking at other’s before&after !) :


Looking at these pictures makes me wonder why the hell did we ever move from this appartment just when it was all finished? Maybe just for the fun of starting again ?

Fifi’s choice

Believe me, it was almost as difficult as Sophie’s choice…
But now it’s time to announce the winners of the contest C’est pour qui?

At first, there is Anzil who enthused me by her weekly diary of polaroids. One for each day and all of them just so beautiful:



There is also Annsofi with her soft words like a security blanket, wraped in a lovely envelope:


And then there is Alessia who touched me by telling a lot about her. She is right, I always enjoy to know more about the persons who love my work:


At last, there is Mélanie who surprised me with a little construction for a cute studio where you can even find Susie:



Here it is. The winners will get the book as promised. So that the others won’t be disappointed, I will send them a little surprise as well.
It makes me feel sad to know that this little contest is over, it was really great… I hope you enjoyed it! At least, I did!
And for someone who likes surprises I was very spoiled. Thank you soooo much!



You impressed me!  I was just expecting little notes and look what I got! Every morning, I was excited to open my mailbox and discovering the daily mail.

Now, picking out 3 winners is too hard. Well, like the 3 musketeers, they will finally be 4 because it’s really impossible to make a choice…

Just give me a little more time and I will return tomorrow with results and photos. It’s a deal!
