J'adore Etsy....


Where would we all be without etsy? I cannot imagine life without it and think that it has given "we" women a place to trade and make friends all over the world.

A couple of months ago I saw some fabulous cushions on etsy and thought that they would be perfect for one of our rooms at Maison No. 20.

So I contacted the owner of the etsy shop, the lovely Clara and asked if she could make me some "special" cushions for Maison No.20.

And here they are.........


I really adore them as they are a bit different to what is on offer here in France.

Clara and Marcela also have a fabulous blog, which I enjoy visiting regularly.

You girls are going to laugh at this bit, after taking the photos of the room, I decided that I did not really like the chandelier and that it would look better with a vintage black metal one that has leaves and crystals hanging down.

Luckily I already have one that I found at a vide grenier a couple of weeks ago so I have spent a couple of hours cleaning itthis afternoon, it was hard to clean and think that the previous owner decided that it was easier to sell it than clean it!

{the chandelier that I want to replace}

So now I just need to figure out a way of breaking this to Mr. FF, I feel that I may need to "butter" him up, so any ideas on how I best go about doing this.....

  5. Those pillows are so perfect in that gorgeous room. That was such a great idea that you came up with for having them made. And I would just show the wonderful Mr. FF your post (along with a plate of his favorite food) to break the news to him about the chandelier! ~Lili

  6. Your new pillows are lovely and I love your chandie but can't wait to see the black one there. You ought to show him a picture of what the black one would look like first, proof that it's a necessary change. :)

    I'm afraid to invest in anything too expensive for my home as my taste changes daily, ha!

    By the way, they say the way to amn's heart is through his stomach. Cook him his favorite meal and I'm sure he'll wonder what you're up to!!
    I hope you are having a truly wonderful day!

  20. We all know that it is a woman's perogative to change her mind. Funny how photos can draw our attention to something that otherwise, because we see it everyday we may overlook. Love the new cushions!

  22. Leeann, I'm so glad you got to "meet" Clara and Marcela - I love them! They are so talented and sweet. The pillows they made for you are just perfect! I also have one of their wonderful pillows, and many of their beautifully altered books.

  23. I agree with some of the others the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. With all that wonderful produce over there it should be a breeze.
