My favorite French craft and lifestyle magazine, Marie Claire Idées just arrived (2 months late, but I'm not counting) at Joseph Beth last week. I was introduced to this by my french sister-in-law Charlotte and visit the bookstore frequently to see when the next one comes in. It's a wonderful peek at a more European styling and has some really great ideas. And no, I don't understand what it actually says especially since my French has been sorely neglected but in the end, it's all about the pictures--right?? Yes, that's right. And if you need a translation, there is always google. Anyway, some pretty pictures:
Love this for the pure simplicity of the 2 colors and because Turquoise is the new color of the year...
These tomato, herb and cheese savories would be so elegant at an outside dinner or at a sophisticated picnic (I keep dreaming of having one of those kinds of picnics). I think that herb is rosemary.
And do you see what I see?? Yes readers, that's Happy Tape and Chiyogami paper, which I am now selling on another etsy store of mine called Snips & Scraps. I'm not actually selling these styles, but some like it.
