Deliveries season ends, at last. We have been able since a few weeks to get get back to work. My hands in dyeing, Irene and Sylvia in mounting and embroidery. The result? Four new dolls Bertille to be seen and sold here, here, here and here. Although Bertille is and will remains our beloved doll, we have imagined her a little sister. More rounded and soft, a doll that we can dress and sleep with. Bertille on the chair, Isis in bed. Because yes, Isis is her name, the name of the goddess of fertility, the name too, but this is an anecdote, of the clinic where I gave birth to my first son, almost 9 years ago. Time flies. Isis will no doubt be available for Christmas. I’ll show you a few pieces here and then … Those who follow me on Instagram have already seen!

Not much, not the one that grids and cooks so much we cannot get outside anymore, no, I just want a little sun. Rays that heat the back, which makes you want to stretch like a cat. In the most extraordinary case sun would make his appearance, are available online from the beginning of the week a dress, a hat and short pants. All three carved linen sheets from our grandmothers. White a little raw, a little thick, but still soft and fears neither hot water nor soap, preferably Marseille. Well, the weather is nice in Marseille. And in Charpey? Where is Charpey you say? Well this is where we will soon live my family and me. At the foot of the Vercors, at the foot of a beautiful breathtaking regional park with a view on the Two Sisters, the Trois Becs and I do not know any other mountain. There, I hope the sun will eventually point the tip of his nose; in the meantime enjoy your visit here, here and here. I will tell you in detail our future move that may be, shall we say, slightly animated.

It’s a little late to talk about it here, I know, but better late than nothing. I should probably have done some marketing studies, it would have helped me putting things online on time, or I should have not slept the last two months, it would have allowed me to do the right updates… But I studied journalism and I slept well thank you, so these Christmas balls come like a hair in the soup as we say in french. Too bad, here they are anyway. Please note that they can also entertain baby, hanging in his cradle, at a mobile, after having decorated the chrsitmas tree, or not. Helen comes in two colors, white or gray, each piece is one of a kind, hand-finished and sometimes, as you start to get used to, an original embroidery, an open work or a bit of a monogram, comes with it. Helen is on sale here and here.

There’s no more leaves on the trees, it freezes, I have to find some interest in the fall, in its faded colors, its skies faded, this big chocolate craving to fill… I started to dye linens and went on hot mixes and soft tones for the next bunnies people are asking me. Asian clients want my powder pink, I made one very pale, but I also wanted to make something closer to nature with more colors extinct. I do not know if it’ll make something, but I experienced a lot of blends of pigments. And on this raw linen canvas, with reliefs and mendings, with its weaving so special, right away, it takes another dimension.

Um, mattress ticking, the most utilitarian canvas that can be, with the tarp maybe. Whenever I see some, it plunges me into a state of intense excitement. And when it has lived like here and bears marks from its past, then it’s ecstasy. It becomes hard to find, but it is so beautiful. I kept one piece particularly amazing, all the others will end in bags. A good big bag, doubled and made from these pieces of canvas. With leather handles, yes sire, and not just any leather because it comes from a prestigious French maison. I can not tell you more, but I’ll show you one very quickly. This bag is to walk everywhere from the office to the beach through the market. It will be available early in the year and there will not be tons of them, as you can imagine.

It’s been a while since I have not said anything here, sorry, like everyone else, I run and like everyone else in the evening, I collapse telling me why but I’m so tired! Vivement Halloween, pumpkins cutting and aid kit nearby. I do not do my nails all day, the proofs on my site, go and have a look. The flea market section was filled, I’m glad that you like the “linen” section, it also will refuel with the success of dyed cloths. And in the “accessories” part, the classic itemsnow come in different fabrics. I’ll try to post an article to each product available online. I said I will try …!

It’s school time ! Here is Gregoire, a real dunce cap to wear for fun, for disguise, playing bad student or to make one self a little animal head without much artifice. Gregoire is easy to put on, his ears can keep all straight or bend over to give a look of a sad puppy. Mid toy mid accessory, Gregoire is simple, but it is made in vintage linen and can be washed very hot as many times as necessary. Gregoire is on sale here.

A big news plus a beautiful fashion page, thank you to the MILK magazine that has chosen two of our products in its latest issue ! I’m still not back down to earth since the magazine is out. It’s the anniversary edition of the magazine, so cool. I also want to thank the American photographer Winky Lewis. The picture published in MILK is her, as many pictures of the brand since last year. You can go for a ride on her website here, definitely worth a visit. As for the special issue of the MILK’s 10 years, one can eat it, as usual. See you soon !

Some big hand-woven hemp from farms of Eastern Europe + applied placemat from grandmother = robust and delicate cushion at the same time. Franca cushion covers are unique pieces that decorate as well a sofa, a balcony or wooden floors, a terrace. I like the contrast of the raw material and the fineness of these small embroidered placemats made by our grandmothers whom one hide the primary use . Good thing we have no more TV set to put on these, isn’t it? They are for sale here and here. There are only a few pieces, each being a little similar, but all different. Don’t forget the “canvas” which has been finally fullfilled. Next week it will be the doll Bertille with a lot of new clothes that will be back on the shop… It is about time, right ? Have a nice week !
