Five Faves #25

Keep your eyes peeled
Lyndie Dourthe, créatrice extraordinaire, re-opens her shop this week

Happy Sunday!
A travel theme to this week's Five Faves - travelling back in time, around the country, to foreign places and imaginary lands. Some beautiful links from some very special blogs, I hope you'll enjoy reading them and exploring their authors' other artwork and photography.

On y va ?

1) Favourite small piece of history - handembroidered, autographed hanky dated 1899

2) Favourite travelling project - Doll Consequences
Nine talented UK crafters start nine dolls then pass them on, add their own touch each time one comes their way and pass them on again, until they've travelled around the country and returned to their original maker nine months later
See the first doll project here

3) Favourite step back in time, via one of my favourite blogs - the discovery of this abandoned French classroom, complete with Mickey Mouse murals

4) Favourite glimpse of another time and place - Iza's beautiful holiday photographs of Li Jiang (1 & 2)

5) Favourite nighttime voyage - Yumiko Froehlich's drawings, so beautiful.

Bonne journée tout le monde !
