Mercredi Moodboard #4

Bonjour !
I love Wednesdays! A lot of French children don't have school (the last year for us), so we get a mini-break halfway through the week with a long lie-in, breakfast outside on our sunny balcony and PJs until lunch time.  

La vie est belle - oh yeah!

Wednesday's also the day I get to curate a moodboard featuring some of my recent favourite finds. Visual poetry and sunshine - a happy combination!

I hope you enjoy this small selection from my tumblr.

Thanks for the inspiration:

Inspiration: Tree By Stream

 I Love Art. Just can't get enough of it.
It's one of the things that makes me tick.
I can't imagine an artless life, or an artless blog for that matter.

I came across this special tree by a stream quite by chance.
And I like to sit and admire all the beauty.
It's so good, so simple.
The way I like it.

Blog Crush: Stylejuicer


If you follow me on pinterest (gosh over 128,000 of you do, that's amazing, thank you!) you'll have gathered that I love interior design and art. After almost 5 years online, I think I'm still often associated with vintage toy designs, understandably so, but my closer friends and loyal K&C followers also know that I love fashion, colour, patterns and textures, ... the list is long!

The online landscape has changed so much over the past 5 years, hasn't it? I admit that I now only read only a handful of very special blogs on a daily basis. Some are absolute favourites, authored by virtual kindred spirits, others entice me, surprise me, grow on me. 

I see hundreds of images everyday online but when I visit Annie Cruse's blog Stylejuicer, it always feels so fresh, crisp and new. Just what my e-doctor ordered - bliss! Whether sharing healthy recipes, curating a moodboard or writing about modern or vintage homes, Anne has a knack of making me see things in a different light. It's relaxing, inspiring, une valeur sûre.

Time to rethink K&C perhaps...

Well hello!
I'm back after a wonderful weekend with friends and family.
We had two special birthdays last week, my youngest son's and my husband's, 
so double fête chez nous.
Luckily the weather has been glorious and I could almost ... almost have gone for a swim in the pool. Yep, it already feels like Summer's on it's way!

However, Easter first!
I thought we'd kick off this beautiful sunny week with something sweet.
I am absolutely smitten with this unusual bunny wallpaper from French brand Ados & Co / Elisabeth Leroy selling on etsy. Isn't it adorable? And the styling too - swoon!

Why not make the most of our -40% discount on all soft toys until 21/04/14?

We only have a few left now so just enter the discount code : EASTERTREAT and hop ! hop! hop! she can be yours!
