Happy Saint-Patrick’s day! And Happy Ostara! Spring is knocking on our doors!

Last weekend we sowed our seeds indoor in preparation for Spring and Summer. I’m very excited to be thinking about our gardening season. After only a few days, we have a few sprouts coming out: Cosmos won the race, followed by chamomile and calendula. It’s such a wonderful pleasure to see these plants grow from seeds. This year, I want to try and grow more of my own herbal teas. I’ve also experimented with cranberry seeds, and cross your fingers they sprout!


After finishing the poppy painting last week, I’ve started a new one. Can you guess what plant I’m featuring here? Hint: you probably have some form of it in your kitchen!

It’s a lot of fun to be working on these plant studies as I’m learning a lot of plants but also about painting them. I’m very excited to share this new one with you soon!

I drew these little hares this morning! I was very inspired by the eminent arrival of Spring. I stumbled upon this three hares symbol as I was researching my Ostara card, and it stayed stuck in my head. It’s a very mysterious symbol that has been found in different part of Europe and Asia. We’ve lost it’s meaning, but I like imagining stories around it, and I hope you’ll enjoy it too!

And if you enjoy hares, I also made this other colouring page a few weeks ago!

Inspiration

All in softness and imagination!

A small treat…

I made this for lunch this week, and it was delicious! I only used a little bit of sesame oil to pan fry however, and it was still a crispy wonder 🙂

How was your Valentine’s day? Ours was very relaxed and low-key: we made chocolate crepes, and it was delicious! It’s so nice to take the time to make a special breakfast on the week-end. With confinement, I’ve learned that any occasion to celebrate should be taken, and that celebrations don’t need to be grand affairs. It takes a bit of an effort to think about these everyday celebrations, but the effect they have on my mood is well worth the extra time and energy! Next week-end, I’m looking forward to making some waffles or maybe pancakes. I’m not sure yet, but it’ll be simple and delicious!

I felt incredibly blessed this weekend when one of you wrote me to tell me that she had tried my rice pudding and chocolate cookies recipes. I was so glad to know that you tried the recipes and that you enjoyed them! It’s nice to imagine us sharing the same foods in different places.

As for work, well, I’ve been sketching a lot for my book project. Unfortunately for me, I’m almost done with the preliminary and “research” sketches, and I’ll soon have to embark on the project itself. I know I’ve been writing this since the beginning of the year, but this book project is SCARRRYYYYY!!! The next step will be to review and amend the storyboard I drew last year. Send in your happy thougths!

To relax, I’ve also started knitting an Icelandic Yoke sweater. I really hope this sweater will fit well. So far, all my sweater projects have been failures, so I’m excited to try again with this one. I’m enjoying the colours work immensely, and it’s been very relaxing to knit with the snow and cold outside.

New in store

Lots of new things in store this week! I’ve finally received some notepads and sticky notes for all the stationary lovers! It’s so nice to infuse a bit of pretty objects in our daily lives!

I’m also thinking about Spring with this colouring page and flower card. Magnolias are one of my favourite flowers, and I’m very happy to share this one with you!

Inspiration

This week, I share another beautiful find from the for-sale-books bin!
