I'm ready for Spring. I've been pottering at home, dying for the first blossoms to appear, thinking about all the work that needs to be done in the garden and generally feeling very lucky to live in the South of France.
Cécile Daladier's beautiful ceramics have something to do with this. I'm following her tumblr and enjoying every single image. How delicate, unique and poetical are those vases!
It seems so long since we went bargain hunting at a French flea market!
I miss my Saturday rummage in Sommières or Villeneuve les Avignon so much, although we now have so much stuff waiting "for the right place" that I doubt I can justify many more vintage finds for this house.
French online shop Sur 1 R de Brocante has some really nice items, right up our interior alley. I'm guessing that you have to be quick, Nicky's gems seem to fly off the shelves super vite ... ( international shipping, bien sûr ).
My apologies, Tumblr Tuesday never happened this week.
Unfortunately our house is feeling more like a hospital right now, as we succumb one by one to our annuals colds. Anyway, what's a few days wait when you have a tumblr as inspiring as Petits Petits Tresors to share ?
If you are interested in kids' design, fashion, photography and decoration, Helena's tumblr is one of the very best sites. I know many of you will be following her already, either here or on pinterest (yes, she's incredibly popular!) She also contributes to the Spanish kids' blog Decopeques, always impressing me with her amazing eye and ability to unearth new names and products from all over the world.
Ten minutes browsing Petits Petits Tresors' links is like flicking through one of the best international kids' magazines - at least 6 months before they appear in the press!
