Dans Le Cuisine!

Always on the lookout to add a little French charm to our home...I couldn't resist this handmade bunting banner that I found for sale on etsy.

It was made by the prolifically creative Lilla, who lives in Hawaii.

She has carefully hand embroidered a letter onto each unique flag...
Give me a 'P'...

Give me an 'A'...

Give me an 'R'...

Give me an 'I'...

Give me an 'S'


In other areas of our home though, I have been toning down the decoration for a more calming, relaxed feel...Just for now...

I've added some lace panels behind the glazed cabinet doors of the dresser. They are on tension wires, so will be easy to take away again when the mood takes me...For now I am enjoying the softer look.

PS: I'd just like to add my congratulations to Sally Page on the launch of her latest book 'Flower Shop Messages - I Love you More Than New Shoes'. I'm sure it will be another hugely successful addition to her delightful collection of Flower Shop books. Sally's daughter Libby attended the launch party wearing a 1950's dress that she recently bought from me :)
