Postcard perfect………..

A nice phrase the English use for a beautiful landscape that would easily fit a postcard.Well this post is far from being perfect but I have something with old postcards and stamps ,and I’ve seen a sweet little postcard perfect shop during my holiday  in the Ardennes in a postcard perfect city.It’s called Durbuy .  I came across the holiday pictures and just had to use these shop pictures.They sold brocante and flowers  and there was a sort of Jeanne Darc Living  atmosphere  inside that I like very much.


Strange enough at home I’m painting  so hard to get my outside wooden bench and table looking as perfect as possible and what do I like the most if I’m in an old village in French or in Belgium? It’s the old ,in terrible state doors and windows!!

Gave myself a little present.I’m fond of stamps, especially the old fashion postcard ones.The Old stuff shop sold this beautiful tin filled with stamps.Just perfect !! DSC01388

   I already had an old postcard stamp that I used for lavender bags but I kind of improved the idea.I packed the postcard bag in tulle fabric, add some dried flowers, ribbons and a little dragonfly or frog to it as a finishing touch.No ,it’s probably not postcard perfect but I love making it !

The person who designs beautiful things is Tone Finnanger.Her new book is again perfect.I’ve  made three little princesses from her latest book.I did not make the Christmas version but my own white creation with ribbons,lavender and beads.
