Marie-Claire Idées

For years I have been wondering what it would be like to go to this craft fair, and I finally got to find out last weekend during another mini break in paris. It was heaven - like a visit to your local craft shop but around 200 times bigger, with workshops, artisans, renowned artists and so many habberdashery counters you simply lost count.
I easily spent the whole day there, even though my back is hurting me at the moment (guess it has to do with the mini me putting all kinds of pressure around). It almost felt like I was rushed at the end, when I really had to leave in order to catch my train and make my way back across the Channel ;)

The place was full of inspiration, and even though I was wise with my spending, I feel completely full of ideas for the festive period looming upon us. I will show you my purchases once I can take a decent picture of them. Now for the showcase windows...

Doesn't it just look wonderful? Well, it truly was. I have another whole series of photos to share on the Christmas theme, so keep tuned for more.

very simple lunch

The simplest lunch in the world. Pure childhood regression!

new curtains!

Although I finished them a couple of weeks ago now, I can finally show you the finished curtains. I am SO relieved that this mammuth job is done. I know it might sounds super easy to the skilled sewer but I had never done anything like this before, and had nobody to turn to when it didn't turn out the way I wanted. Got you feeling sad and sorry for me now, haven't I?
Well, get over it and just admire the beauties with me - that's what they're here for!

 And as you can see, we have been blessed with enough sun and warmth to open the windows a bit today and let the fresh air in. A real treat!
Needless to say, I won't rush to make the rest of the house's curtains...if I manage to fend off Mr Yummy - he thinks I should get to it straight away and prepare the room for our family addition coming soon. But more on that later.
