Petite Cerise

Hello everyone ! It’s been a while, once again, I’m sorry. I’m being quite a bad blogger & blog friend.

Life is pretty full these days. Good but full. Yet I managed to work on a set of coasters, inspired by a vintage print I thrifted recently ! Do you want to see it ? Here we go …

I found te print super fun & super cute, and it inspired me to carve stamps to use on one side. Can you see it ?

I love their country style, this woven linen is so yummy ! You can find them >>> here  !

Wishing you all a lovely rest of your week. Thank you so much for stopping by today. 

With love, 

Sonia

You can’t imagine the joy it is for me to have now more stuff to show & share with you ! This means I’m being motivated & inspired, and it fills my heart with happiness !!

This week, I’m sharing with you new Gentle Tags ! These are little joys to make, and I hope they’ll bring joy to your home or to their final recipients’ home ! I made four of them, and I just love the fabrics I picked from my thrifted, vintage collection ! I hope you will love them too !

Posting in the blog for three days in a row … wow, that hadn’t happen in such a long while ! I must be on a roll !! I thought I’d share with you today some snapshots at what I call my atelier.

Last December (I think), I rearranged our living-room in order to create three separate (yet still open) spaces : a space for taking our meals, a space for relaxing, reading or watching TV, and last but not least, a place for me to create ! I used oak book cases (shelving units) for creating a separation between the TV areas (we only use our TV for watching films we rent/buy) and what was going to become my atelier.

It totally worked, because since then, I’ve felt like I had an actual, tangible space of mine, in this house of ours. My weeks are not longer because of that (obviously, but really, I wish !!), specially with weekends when hubby comes home, that makes weeks go even faster !

But … I might have found a motivation & inspiration, like I hadn’t in years !! And I’m super happy about that … who wouldn’t be ?

So … these cotton ribbons you see above were handstamped by me, and will be used for the upcoming Gentle Tags ! (read more about them here) I hope they’ll be ready tomorrow, but I can’t promise, really ! I’m having so much fun with these ! Picking vintage floral (thrifted) fabrics & text to go with it, is such a joy !

I love to thrift, but not only textiles ! I love to thrift (possibly handmade) ceramic pieces, such as mugs, cups, and bowls, no matter the size. And my atelier table is a living proof ! See for yourself :

I don’t know if you see them, but there are one mug (with a large handle) and an expresso cup in the wooden tray ! The mug on the front is a vintage Dunoon, and I love find them when I thrift ! I have a couple of them, and I love them dearly !
