Wearing my new cape and images that inspires me.

It took me three months to finish my knitted cape but I am very happy about the result and now that it is cold it is the perfect time. Although, I only wear it at home either watching TV or knitting away another project. Other the times, I collect images from magazine that inspires me, here are a few of them. I can't believe that in a few hours it will be 2010. Hope you are doing well and I wish you all the best for the New Year. Cheers!!

Christmas spent in the Sunshine State

This Christmas, my husband and I were in Florida visiting my mum. I finished this cape which I am really proud of. I like it a lot. It will be perfect wearing it at home while watching TV or working on another knitting project. The pearl necklace is a Christmas gift from my mother. My father gave it to her a long time ago. She also gave me this book from Hemingway, a classical, all in French. Happy New year to you all! Cheers!

Wishful thinking

Wearing my new Lyell top with a blouse that I claimed from my mother. The skirt is from Zara. I love the fact that the skirt has pockets; pockets give me something to do with my hands and give me confidence.

My beloved grandmother

Nice picture of my mother and I.

I wish that everyone including myself would be 10 years younger in my family; I would be in my life where I am now and my grandmother would be able to hear me and my mother would not be sick. Wouldn't be nice? Also, this extra time will allow my family to enjoy the bubble of joy who is expected to arrive at the beginning of June. But things are the way they are and I have to deal with the reality. This Christmas, my husband and I will be celebrating with my mother making the most of it and enjoying this precious moment. I wish you all a Happy Holiday.
Take care

A ray of sunshine on a rainy day

Whenever it is a rainy day like yesterday, I try to do fun project to cheer me up and forget about the outside world. I am currently working on my second sockmonkey for the organization FreshArt

I love my new coat from H&M. I feel like a bear wearing it and it keeps me warm; all in style.

I love also my new ruffle top from H&M also.

Unbelievable!! I received yesterday a package from one of my best friend who lives in Switzerland filled with my favorite goodies, Cailler chocolates, Biberli (gingerbread stuffed with marzipan), a book L'elegance de L'herisson by Muriel Barbery, a pure delight the reading. I am so happy to have a new book to read as after reading the latest book from Sophie Kinsella I was out of inspiration.

Childhood memories

I remember my mother always did intricate gouter (snacks) for school wrapped up in aluminum with funky shapes.

I love Zermatt. There is something magical about this place. You take a little train to go all the way up and then you can sit at a terrace and enjoy the beautiful landscape. I love mountains.

I love skiing. I love the speed and to be in the mountains. I could ski everyday if I could. I feel free when I ski. What is wonderful about skiing is that you use all your muscles. After a good day of skiing, you are tired but happy. And then you are ready for a fondue. I love cheese fondue.

When I was a little girl, I used to wear clogs; not all the time. Aren't they cute with the flower?
Now as an adult, I wear clogs too. I remember my mathematic teacher wearing clogs all year long. He was such a cool dude, very laid back. It is seems that nothing phase him. I like people like that. I feel that when in my life I am with people who are relaxed, at ease, I excel at what I do. Anyway, now, I wear clogs remembering that teacher and having fun with it. I wear clogs with colorful Japanese socks. Although, mine are all in wood, they are really comfortable.

I love the window display of E.R. Butler & Co

WOW! I love this window display. I feel that I am doing scuba diving and discovering all those treasures. The jewelry are beautifully displayed. I would love to work for E.R. Butler as their hardware are so beautiful. I love the craftsmanship. They are like jewelry pieces themselves.
Their store is located in Little Italy in New York. If you pass by Prince Street, check out the window display. I find it so inspiring. A pure delight.
