Bloomin' Lovely!



I really can't think of a nicer way to wish you all a wonderful Easter weekend with your family and friends than presenting The Princess and The Pea's first ever collection for adults. I've been keeping the secret for months and I am absolutely delighted to see the response. These are the clothes I have been waiting for!

Beautiful presented by her gorgeous daughter Siam, the inspiration for The Princess and The Pea  twenty-two years ago, this new line of dresses, tops, bloomers (want!) and scarves is everything I love.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Alexandra, Siam Loubat and Marie Bas!

Both the adult and the children's collections will be available to buy from The Princess and The Pea website as from tomorrow.

Happy Easter!

Styling Spring

It's funny, I'd already half-written a "Happy Easter" post, something vibrant and retro to uplift and celebrate with colour. Then I was drawn into Lab71's styling portfolio this morning and fell quietly in love with the soft pastels and poetical worlds I'd found. 
So many beautiful images and stories, I think.

So, Happy Easter to you all!

Frieda thank you!

Just Because

Just because...

I've been following Heather Shaw's blog since day one.
Three years of beautiful, simple inspiration.
And it always, always feels like home.

Looks like Spring is here, for today at least.
I'm taking Miles and Savannah on the train to Montpellier this afternoon, birthday and Easter shopping.
They love these mini-excursions.
Can't wait!

Let The Sun Shine!

Let the sun shine

For the little ones are waiting,

waiting so quietly, so patiently to play.

And when they do,

we shall smile and laugh with them.

Oh oui !

Just Because

It's always a question of balance.

We've had a hectic, demanding week and I'm in need of a rest. 
Luckily the kids are away ski-ing this weekend so I am enjoying some peace and quiet in my own company at home. Qu'est-ce que ça fait du bien !

A break, to recharge my batteries. You just know when you've pushed things too far.

I love the styling and products in this new-to-me shop

Still loving etsy you see!
