Mum and Helen visited the Sajou haberdashery store in Paris just the other day (you can follow hettiespatch on Instagram). Whimsical illustrations accompanied by beauty and pattern, these products are a nod to the past, which I think makes them all the more beautiful today. Needle cases, embroidery books, scissors, thread cards, stitchery patterns, and so on, and so on. Today they waking up to their first day at Chateau Dumas which is near Auty in the south of France. They are with the French General team having a ball I'm sure. Croissants for breakfast, or maybe croque monsieur or croque madam. Either way, they will be having breakfast with a view of french fields and topiary gardens which makes it all the more delicious.
