This week it has been triple digit HOT! This in a region where if it hits 80 degrees it's considered a heat wave. My unairconditioned studio at the top of the house has been just too hot to work in. I've squeaked in a few things during the wee hours of the morning when the temp. has dropped a bit, but still .. very warm. Above is the mystery creation from the supplies pictured in the previous post -- mini cupcake pincushions! These little guys are only about 1" x 2" and are completely cute handcrafted whimsy!
While waiting for the heat wave to abate, I spent some time surfing online from my cool kitchen and discovered these two amazing French artists. I don't speak any French, but it's jaw dropping eye candy even if you just look. Above is the sublime paper sculpture work of Le Jardin de Miss Clara. I just love this dress and shoes! She has some lovely art prints and downloadable wallpapers too.
And here at Laetitia Mieral these fairy-tale based papier-mâché wonders are created. She has an amazing blog (partially in English) full of creative costumes and custom creations. Given the current craze for Marie Antoinette, I thought this was really cute.
I'm heading back to the lavender farm this week for fresh culinary lavender and I'll publish recipes and lavender goodies next week!
