Last Week

last week was a colorful and happy one

we had some rainy days and I had breakfast by candle light

I found these lovely hangers with flowers and cute cupcake liners

working on a gift to go with the girly blanket, still trying to figure it out

my happy package from Japan arrived

lately I ordered crochet and sewing books from Megumi from the beautiful Etsy shop Pomadour24

her ship is packed with pretty books, I had such a hard time making my selection

but I did, they are here now, and I loooove them; the colors, the projects, the pictures... all equally pretty

if you are looking for Japanese craft books, I can highly recommend Megumi's shop Pomadour24

last weekend we left for our camping holiday

we plan to travel around the East Coast provinces of Canada

and we started in Quebec City

the weather is gorgeous and we enjoy ourselves very well here


for the duration of our holiday I put the crochet kits on hold in the creJJtion Etsy shop

the patterns however, are still available for you!

for now au revoir et bonne semaine
