Searching for some inspiration for the spring decoration of my home, I brought various magazines in the garden, a cup of coffee... I so enjoy this activity! Spring is a great source of inspiration for painting, quilting... the miracle season! The flowers are marvelous, especially the wisteria fragrant with scent. 

In a COUNTRY HOMES & Interiors April 2014 issue, I found a picture of a quilt that reflects my spring happy mood and I am hopping up and down of impatience to start a similar one... fabric order??? Sure I will not find what I want in my stash...

Though it may be a more reasonable idea to finish my Gyspy Four Patch Quilt that I began to enlarge two months ago. See the progress here.

  6. Such nice inspiration! I can almost smell your wisteria. That old quilt in the chair is fabulous. I will love to see your version. Someday I might make one too. For now, too many projects are already started. Happy spring!

  7. Tes photos me donnent envie de "chambouler" dans la maison , d'ouvrir bien grandes les fenêtres et de profiter du soleil. Mais pour l'heure une bise tellement forte souffle que je ne cèderai pas à la tentation ; et surtout je pars une petite semaine à Nantes....
    Merci pour tes jolies photos

    1. I knew that this wisteria . I tried to plant the wisteria at home , but we have a bit of a cold climate for wisteria . It grows poorly .

  12. I also like to look at old magazines and books for inspiration. I especially like crochet designs from the 1940's. Your pictures are beautiful!
