Etsy Finds: A Vintage Christmas

Bonjour !

I am sorry it's been so quiet round here. 
For once (I'm never ill!), I've been a little off colour, nursing a nasty cold and ear infection... I guess it's Winter after all.

After wrestling my way through busy shopping centres over-excessively adorned in gold, tinsel and sparkling lights this weekend, I am yearning for the simplicity of vintage decorations today.

I hope you enjoy this small collection of finds from etsy, which I am really at the moment. I hope you'll follow me there too!

Thanks for the inspiration:

Minimal & Modern



 Did you know that Christmas Time is my most popular moodboard on pinterest?
Surprising really, as we like to keep things pretty simple at home.
I'm determined to be organised this year, however, and I've started to create lists for my close family and friends.
 I'm even curating a gift guide for you too.

Do you celebrate Christmas? If so, what are your plans?
I'm going for black & white with a touch of green. 
Minimal and modern, that's me!

Love that wreath made from olive branches.
We have plenty of those in our garden.

Which reminds me -
it's olive-picking time!

Thanks for the inspiration:

Inspiration: Tabula Rasa

Asia Gwis and I started blogging about the same time, back in 2009.
Four years of sharing, inspiring and soul-searching too... One day she stopped, pulled the plug, just like that, needing to reconnect with her pre-internet life. I get that, now.

I'm pleased to see Kavka's new beginning. Clean, beautiful, fresh.
I'll be following and admiring this Polish graphic designer and illustrator from afar, 
once again.

Tabula Rasa.
I've done it too.
I'm working on something, something slightly different, and it's so good to start anew!

I'll show you one day, peut-être...

Inspiration: Les Petites Emplettes

Let's start the day with some visual poetry.
My French readers will already be well acquainted with the beautiful world of

This shop is  "une valeur sûre" in the French online world, chock-full of simple, poetical and practical finds for the whole family. Take your time to explore every corner of their store - it's very special.

The owners moved recently and I've been feeling very inspired by all the photos they've  been sharing of their new home - a château in Charente. Le rêve !
That green thread is wonderful!
