Inspirations from France

My husband calls this The Button Shop.  I call it heaven.

I have not blogged much this year.  Nor have I done much sewing.  A summer in France has been my inspiration to get sewing again - and blogging.  Here are some things I saw that inspired me.

Purchases from La Drogerie:  Sticky circles for my friend to use on bunting, a scarf to add tassels to for another friend, a small piece of very bright fabric and a notebook for me.

Buttons and Trims.

An amazing boutique (they still exist in France) of original things.

Another very chic boutique filled with vintage things. Love the chair.

African bags.  These would be fun to make in the tradition of the African-inspired dresses seen on The Great British Sewing Bee.
