It's worth to visit Dr Martens site to admire the collection of boots, wether it is the shiny disco, the tartan or the vintage flowers ones.

So sophisticated

I found this range of polka dot fabric accessories in a french store in Toulouse :


So cute colours and patterns in a japanese style : it's perfect to put all the stuff you lug around in your bag.

It's a french brand called Sophistikate. Catherine, the designer, gets her inspiration from its numerous trips and particularly Japan. The fabrics used come exclusively from Japan and are sewn in little parisian workshops.

You'll find these pouches, purses and passport-holders on line at Sophistikate with the list of retailers.

Little black dress, for little girl

The year's end festivities have come to end. And I find myself with two little black dresses that haven't been worn. Instead of these pretty evening dresses offered by Granny, my daughter preferred a Saturday Night Fever style in purple paste, and the second a simple black Tshirt-trousers outfit. In spite of all these efforts, Granny didn't achieve to transform us in well-behaved daughter and grand-daughters, even for one evening. :-{


So, the dress in black velvet with white polka dots "Jodhpur" is in the french store Galerie Lafayette.

The black dress with big white polka dots comes from a new kids shop in Valbonne in the south of France : Coco et Jojo. You will find all the french retail stores on the brand website : Interdit de me gronder.

My green polka dot oilcloth

An oilcloth tablecloth in my house? Never!
I tried the beautiful teak table with pretty placemats. Two children, a few grease stains and 3 tons of crumbs later, I can't do without my green polka dot oilcloth tablecloth.
I found mine at l'atelier de Kitty.




At the begginning, I was searching for an old rose one, unsuccessfully. I just found it. And if you want those old or pastel tons, you will have it in cream, brown, green or blue. It's at Naive at Notonthehighstreet.


If you're searching one in grey, you'll find it at :
Camel and Yack at Notonthehighstreet


Style scandinave (also in red and green)

Tableclothshop : the same colours and also purple :

Dots in my garden

One day, my garden will look like in magazines. But for the moment, the weeds are higher than my recently planted hedge. So, I propose you to add a touch of red and white dots in your garden with accessories from the gloves to the watering can and even the mini-barbecue.

I found them on copenrath. You'll find not only gardening accessories but many dotted things :-).
And the final touch : your matched garden apparel :
