LTA just published two new books : “Paris Vintage” by Hélène Le Berre and “Kawaï” by Christine Nivet. I am not the author, of course I’m not the photographer either, and none of my creations is featured in this books…

So, why do I have to say about???  Can you guess?

I had promised to the ones who has no printer or a temperamental one, that I will find a solution : I printed the 24 patterns from my Avent calendar so they can buy it if they want…

Colours are bright and the size which is a little bigger than A4 (22 x 30 cm) will take part in any DIY project…

I was thinking to use them to cover my books. I found this idea on this picture. I am sorry because I can’t remember where it comes from…

I finally found out that this picture comes from this lovely blog. Thanks to Tove !

Crazy Liza Lou !

Years ago, I fell in love with a work of art (a tribute to housewife’s work) crazy as much as beautiful
I wished to show you some picture since the day I started that blog, but I couldn’t remember the name of the artist.

And then … while wandering on the net, I found it ! The angel who has had the patience to make this masterpiece has a name which sounds like a doll : Liza Lou!

It brought me a answer to a question I had since then: how long did it take her to make her “Kitchen”? The answer is 5 years !!!  5 years covering up everything in this room with tiny glass pearls!

Luckily, after the success of her first work, she found some volunteers to follow her in  her  “Backyard“…

I know that twelfth-night was yesterday, but it’s not a reason to forbid ourselves from eating the Twelfth Night cake, don’t you think ?

Here is my contribution to the party (with Clementine’s help, who just finished her intership) : colourful crowns for every heads !

Thank you so much for all your advices on the subject “fabrics made by  Fifi”! It’s going to take a while, I am going to have to make some choices, find some money  (or a sponsor who knows ?) but I am dying to do them as much as you do…

Here we go!

20101

It’s decided : this year will mean new projects! I am not going to reveal everything to you today, but there is one close to my heart, that I would like to share with you : I’d love to create fabric’s designs ..

Great ! you’re going to say, (I hope !) but which one ??? Flowers ? Dots ? What colour ? Which one of my pattern would you like to see on a fabric ? What would you use it for ? I’d like to know what you are thinking about all that…

Thank you for being here everyday for the Advent Calendar !
Today is the last day …
But I can’t finish without one last surprise that will probably comfort those who couldn’t be there everyday.

I have gathered all the patterns on 4 pages in an ideal size for making a long guarland. It’s a piece of cake to make but since it’s Christmas, here is a tutorial.

I wish you happy, joyful and colorful holidays!!!! !
