Loving lilac

Yes, I continue with my lilac obsession, desperatly seeking mauve and dotted tableware. There's not so many. The french brand Sabre offers the most complete range.

Their two new flatware collections are out : "Candy dots" and "Dots charm" :

They still have their lilac with big white dots dinnerware and their huge collection of flatware (from the melon spoon to the cheese cleaver). But on their website there's not lilac dinnerware left. For the dinnerware, you must go at Fraise des bois who has a complete range :

For the other colors, I picked a selection of purple and plum :

1- Dotted plum coffee cup (Freshness de Bruno Evrard Création) at Côté D'co
2- Dotted plum plate (Freshness de Bruno Evrard Création) at Côté D'co
3- "Kitchen" dotted purple salad bowl at Table et dépendances
4- "Kitchen" Dotted plum plate at Table et dépendances
5- Dotted purple mug (Freshness de Bruno Evrard Création) at Décotaime
6- "Kitchen" dotted plum cup at Table et dépendances
7- "Kitchen" dotted plum mug at Table et dépendances
8- Paper dotted purple plate at Polka dot market, specialized in party decoration supplies.

And at least, this beautiful plum drinking cup "By Sandrine" made in Limoges porcelain, hand-painted and embellished with a large platinum stripe, found at Décoclico.

Mauve again

I picked in ETSY some dotted purple jewelry :

1- A pair of fabric covered stud earrings from Jessie Jewels.

2- A set of 2 spotty handmade lampwork beads to create your own earings or necklace. The artist Angela Gensch made them in her home studio in Sydney.

3- White spotted purple flower earrings at Simply Betty.

4 et 5- To design your own creations : felted round wool beads. Balls are decorated with seed beads. Found at Smika, with many other beads that look like cocoons. Very original.

6- Simple polka dot earrings at Live Oak creations.

7- An adjustable ring with a lavender & white polka dotted apple at Tizzalicious.

In a mauve period

I'm in a mauve period. Last time was in 1985 and I learnt how to dye all my clothing in mauve.
This time, you will just be snowed under my posts about violet, mauve, lilac... colour.
First, let's begin by bedding for everyone.

For grown ups, white dots on lilac bedding found at Becquet :

For children, dotted mauve quilt and cushion cover, at Zara Home Kids :

At least for babies, a lilac crib set at Diapers :

Double sided dotted fabric

I came across these sets of japanese fabric on Dawanda. I didn't know the existence of double sided fabric. I'm sure the experts in sewing will know what to create with these beautiful fabrics :

Carolina sells from Portugal in her Dawanda shop. She is inspired by Japan and you will find many others fabrics in her shop.

If you are too far from New York to plan a party with Amy Atlas, you must absolutely visit the blog and the website. You will certainly get inspiration from the hundred of photos showing her amazing buffets.

Little dotted fabric baskets

I found those Pakhuis Oost baskets in my town of Toulouse :

The Pakhuis Oost dot fabric baskets are available in small and medium size. And if you want a pencil case, a purse or a pouch, you can have one with the same fabric :

The wedding countdown has started, and you didn't yet found your dress? Well, it was your destiny to discover it today on this blog, a dotted one of course :

Yes, you will be "queen for a day" but also, with this stylish dress, you will "be" Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn, the time of an evening.

This wedding dress is the "Candy" model of the french designer Catherine Alhinc.
For the details, this dress is in dupion silk with embroidered grey/taupe dots.

If you love this dress but :
- you are already married
- you don't want to get married

After attending a lime plaster workshop, I have a beautiful white and grey bedroom like in magazines...

It only needs the final touch : a grey duvet cover, a dotted one of course :

I don't like dogs

Too bad for you : you would miss the "Laissez Lucie faire" accessories collection :

Certainly, the dots are mixed with dogs but we are not extremists.
And if you really don't like dogs, you can anyway visit their online shop : you will find other patterns, always in their offbeat style, both retro and modern.
