Wishing you all a Happy Easter, Sunday, Spring day, Sunny day or whatever you like to call it…

 

All cakes made and eaten by me!

MOVING INTO MÉNILMONTANT 

A new place to call home… painting new tales onto old walls in Ménilmontant, Paris…

Before…

Yes, I do make cutouts of furniture from paper to see what will fit where (I am a patternmaker, afterall!!)




The Magic Team Stories Movers (hijacked friends)…

A light at the top…

Those now famed 5 flights up- no lift…

And finally, furnished and familiar…

A little home baking to make it truly home (Apricot and pistachio cake)
