This Week - Cette semaine

Some moments from our week…

Quelques bons moments de notre semaine…

a birthday lunch for a very dear friend and the afternoon spent making soap together

un repas d'anniversaire pour une très bonne amie et l'après-midi passé ensemble à fabriquer des savons

my little guy loving his books

mon petit garçon qui adore ses livres

he also enjoys serving me tea

il aime aussi me servir du thé



learning roman numerals

apprentissage des chiffres romains

we saw a fox just outside our kitchen window one morning this week and it trotted off before I could snap a picture

nous avons aperçu un renard par la fenêtre de notre cuisine un matin cette semaine et il s'est éloigné avant que je ne puisse le prendre en photo

the light is changing with the arrival of March

la lumière change avec l'arrivée du mois de Mars


  1. These are such beautiful photos from a beautiful week. Sarah! I love the crocheted rug that I see! Did you make that?
    And we love The Borrowers too!

    1. Thanks Melanie! I bought the rug years ago from a shop on Etsy but I can't remember the name.

  2. Such beauty and color in your days - and always so peaceful looking.
    That first picture is amazing - what a view.
    Your quit has inspired me to try patchwork, if you don't mind me asking, what size are your squares? I was thinking of doing 5 inch by 5 inch, do you think this would be a good size for a beginner?

    1. Any size will look great Emma, that's what I love about quilting. It's hard to go wrong. The only advice I can give you is that if you start with really small pieces you might get discouraged. I think 5x5 sounds good. Mine were about that size including seam allowance. Good luck with it!

  3. Well I am supposed to be reading your food post but I caught sight of so much beautifulness down here first!
    I LOVE! your patchwork quilt, and even more LOVE! sweet little babies and their book love. My Elsa is just the same way! She even kisses her favorite pictures!
    Wonderful paintings! Wonderful everything!
