Let's go shopping in the South of France

painting-french-9I had exhausted all the inspiration I could muster in my books and magazines. So, I was in need of some French inspiration...there I was lost in the lovelies on etsy in France.

When all of a sudden I found Lilla Lotta.

Her shop is wonderful and wait until you see her blog. "Our little shop has a selection of handmade cotton tapes and fabric goodness!" Her handmade goodness is shown in her gallery HERE.

painting-french-9She writes:

"Living under the big blue sky in the South of France. Totally lost in a sleepy little village in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Mothering a herd of 5 young children. And being creative in the midst of endless laundry."

painting-french-9Sigh...except for the laundry part, I love her life.

painting-french-9Ann Barrow says that she lives in a paintbox and here are some of the results in her gallery.


painting-french-9So, if you feel dreamy on this rainy Sunday, just mozy on over to Ann's blog, and spend some time in the South of France.

Karen, I so appreciated your comment on my blog. I looked to see how I could email you privately to say how much it meant to me.
Love the information and beauty that you always post here.
