♥ Hello darling, show me your heart! ♥

Mathyld is a wonderful crafter, blogger and friend of ours.
She lives in Paris & has this special gift to transform every little thing she touches into something ethereal and terribly romantic. She has a divine fascination with pre-raphaelite art, tea and violets too!
Her creations are little wonders you could only dream of finding in fairytales and secret gardens.

Today she shares her favorite things with us:

☂ 1900s lace & black silk blouse, a gift from my dear friend Barbara
☂ Antique sterling silver locket, from Alice, my mother's mother
☂ 1903 edition of "Spencer's poems" illustrated by my favourite artist : Jessie Marion King, a gift from my mother
☂ Squirrel embroidered brooch, by my friend Lisa (Lou Lou & Oscar)
☂ Light-pink crocheted stone, by my friend Margie (Resurrection Fern)
☂ A bobin of antique lace trims, a gift from one of my mother's best friends
