Inspired and inspiring Mother's Day gifts

I just had to show you the lovely gifts I received on  Mother's Day (yes, I'm a bit late getting around to it sorry!).

This gorgeous pouch was made by my cleverly creative daughter-in-law Lamina - not only the pouch but the screen printed/stamped fabric as well!!  As it happens the clothes I wore to lunch that day were red, black and grey so it was the perfect accessory :)  

Hidden inside were gift cards for the HUGE local hardware store ** - the perfect place to buy all the materials I need to make a project inspired by another gift...

this awesome book
  

700+ pages of inspiring images and text ...
if this doesn't get me dreaming about another French project nothing will!

A big thanks to my wonderfully inspired and inspiring family xxx

** Last year they gave me a Dremel 300 with attachments - do you see a theme developing here? ;)

Another French project?!? I could have missed something in my absence, but you haven't finished your first French project, have you? Love to see a 'grand tour' around the house...
Enjoy your gifts!

Hmmm, I think you had those ideas for much longer. I remember that bookstore from the story of Emily. Let your fantasy work, and you'll have a whole Parisian street, well, in your mind. The hands go a lot slower.
