We had our neighbours around to meet the new baby. I thought about baking something for about, oh, 3.7 seconds, before I headed down to our local patisserie:
There's no way I can compete with this:
The baby also got another lovely package in the mail this week:
Pages from an old children's book = clever wrapping
Some darling handmade items all the way from home.
Thank you so much Michelle.
Honestly, could they be any cuter? Look at those teeny weeny carrots.
And they're reversible.
I was lucky enough to win the Accuquilt giveaway on Lisa and Sarah's blog A Spoonful of Sugar a few weeks ago - my loot arrived this week as well:
I'm being strong and not opening the box until I finish off my current little project:
A new cushion cover. A very yellow cushion cover.
And because we haven't had any French music for a while, here's a song by Mika I'm hearing everywhere this end-of-summer. I challenge you not to dance around your living room as you listen.
The lady in red is a well known French actress, Fanny Ardent. She's gorgeous and has that French je ne sais quoi by the bucketload.
I also love the grey haired, bearded character you first see shaving. He has some banging dance moves; the hips don't lie.
Hope you're all having a great week!
P.S. For those who like to watch men speaking French, here's a link to a Mika introducing the song. He's as cute as a button.
