Hat attack!

I was asked to make two hats for two little boys , both nearly 1 year old. What do you think ?Do these look enough "babyish"? And boyish? The brown one is for a little African boy.

Kitchen corner

Here's an "after" photo of a corner in my kitchen that i have never liked sorry i don't have a "before "shot as it really was worst than this. (this photo is crooked or I have a slanting floor!!!!)

I painted the chest of drawers the same colour (nearly) as the shelf which we bought for a steal! Ideally I would have liked a closed glass cabinet to keep the dust away from my favourite tea cups but this shelf is so "charmant" n'est pas?!


Dancing shoes

These little dancing shoes were bought for my little girl in Dublin a couple of years ago-- Feet of Flames perhaps not but she's been dancing ever since!!!


Where do you store your necklaces?

I'm not too happy with my arrangement but I'm lost for ideas !! If you have a good idea let me know and the best idea posted from now till next saturday 16 May 2009 will receive a prize!!!

Lily of the valley

One of my favourite flowers ,such a lovely perfume from such a small flower! They hide behind relatively large leaves only to be seen by those who take the time to search and pull back the leaves.I've got quite a few plants in my garden now. Everytime I go out to pick a small bouquet it's like finding a treasure!

It's the May flower by excellence and here in France is given to celebrate the 1st of May ; the day of workers.
