Maison Mathilde

This summer we spent our family vacation in the Provence in the South of France.

Our house, Maison Mathilde, was wonderfully shabby chic and so inspiring...

I only think our littlest one preferred his comfortable modern stroller to this cute old-fashioned thing...

A great occasion for early birds to shop for their xmas gifts already now - and at amazing sale prices (up to 50% off!) on almost every single item in the entire shop!

Don't forget your winter decorations and find the lovely collection here.

Guess what... Blanc & Caramel is soon up to new horizons. New items and new styles will join our beloved shabby chic. I gave in to my passion for cute stationery and soon it will be available for you too. For updates, please like Blanc & Caramels Facebook page.

Sparkling Winter

Want a star cookie?

After such a long time I would like to treat you with lots and lots of pictures of my winter decor.

We had a magical Chanukka, all sparkling and festive.

This is one of my December crafting projects, a vintage inspired snowman figure. Sculpturing is my new passion. Along with my old passion, glittering :)

We had a lovely little party at home... Would you like to try some chocolate fudge cake pops or rather...

... some lemon snowman cupcakes?

This is a castle made out of presents for our sweet 3-year-old son. He loved it! Every one of the 8 Chanukka nights he opened another gift...

White, cream, silver, and pale colors... I love them, but I also adore bright and colorful!

This is a mini "gingerbread" house my little one and I made together, I actually had the idea to cut the pieces out of Petit Beurres (French butter cookies), without any pattern this was quite tricky.

Oh well, I had to share this... another crazy passion of mine, colorful Re-Ment miniatures. I got a huge package with tons of new goodies!

So much to do, so little time - as always! Blanc & Caramel - both shops up and running - as always! I'm thankful to be busy with so many interesting projects and welcome such lovely customers.

One of my most exciting projects recently was working on my first publication. Stashbooks
will publish an adorable new Design Collective crafting book this March - Seaside Home. You know how much I'm inspired by summer and love seaside themed crafting projects. In the book, among many others, my Seashell Garland is easily explained for you to reproduce.

There are even more exciting news... guess what!

Gw in a few weeks (or days??) our family is getting bigger! Baby 2 is on his way!

Have a lovely time,

Into the light

I just want to drop in quickly and say hello. It has been almost 6 months now that I've been absent from the blogger world. Thanks so much to those who sent me messages and asked how I was, I appreciate this very much.

I guess I'm just not such a blogger person. In the beginning, I had many ideas, but then I realized more and more that I don't really have something very interesting to say and that I prefer looking at all those amazing blogs out there.

I've also been away because I've been ill for a long time. I'm praying for things to get better.

Thank you for supporting my shop. I've just updated for summer. Most items are favorites from last year because I wasn't able to find the forces to create much new. I have plans for the upcoming months though ;) Please make sure you have changed your bookmarks to (sucre-et-cannelle is definitely not working anymore).

The last sunny weeks were so uplifting. I want more! Did you have such amazing weather in your corner of the world too?
