Linen bath towels!

Two new couples of linen bath towels for my webshop! I bought the fabric in Tallin last's a heavy linen similar to the old one used by our grandmothers to make the trousseaus. They are lined with a little trimming...

In the second couple I've stenciled the's a pity I cannot embroider...but I think the result is similar! I'm so fixed on monograms...I'd make them everywhere!!!

Have a nice and creative week!

White is the colour of purity, innocence, lightness, brightness...white like snow, milk, butter, like the washing under the sun, the houses in the greek islands...white is elegance, like the camellia and the pearls of Coco Chanel...

...white and glass transparences...

...white and candle light....

...white porcelains...

Have a bright week end!!!

Patchwork cushions

New iems for my web-shop ( ).
It's the first time I make a patchwork...I have lots of little pieces of fabric and I've decided to use them in a productive way! I don't like to waste anything!

For the first cushion I've used toile de Jouy, matelas, linen and the stamp of LC in natural and grey shades!

For the second one I've used the same kind of fabrics but in red and natural nuances and I've stenciled the monograms LC...what a pity I cannot embroider!!!

Have a nice and creative week!

I bought this little hydrangea today...I need Spring lives in my home!

I bought the mirrors in Sweden three years ago...I think that the reflexion of the candle light make a suggestive atmosphere!
