Once upon a time I was told that a true princess needs a sparkly crown… “Fair enough”, I thought and went to work. And since it seems that a little bit of sparkle is not enough of sparkle, some more sparkle had to be added to the top of her Majesty’s gown. She then went… Read More
When Oma comes to visit, her hands never rest! She has always been knitting, even when I was a little girl (I will never forget the beautiful turquoise, matching jumpers she has knitted for us. I loved it when we wore them at the same time!). Today, she does not knit so much for me,… Read More
Once upon a time, in a children’s fairytale book, I’ve seen a beautiful princess with a flowing dress and a tall, pointed hat. I’ve never quite forgotten this drawing and so I had to translate it into crochet one day…

Maybe you also remember the lovely gifts she prepared me for our swap). Inspired by all the beautiful sewing found on the… Read More
Recently, I told you about a new recipe for a marble cake that I had discovered on one of my favourite blogs. Well, since then, Odette’s famous marble cake has evolved (and I’ll share the recipe with you).
