I love a good challenge don't you??
France has started its 1/2 yearly SALES.
But I am true to my word.
I SAID NO!! NO I WILL NOT GO!
Mind you, my favourite shop in Toulouse
has fair trade, hand sewn Cashmere...
STILL - NO!
there would be too much other temptation
For I have joined the
And, like Tiff, I shall not falter for 365 days.
Day 8 - so far so good!
Apart from food and essential items
I too have resolved to buy only products
made by hand or recycled for at least the next year!
Mind you - does organic, hand picked food count too???
This is of course a guilt-free and very cheeky way
for me to SPLURGE in the vide greniers and brocantes
this coming spring.
And to support all those wonderfully crafty artists and creators out there!
And to remain resolutely CREATIVE.
(Anyone got a recipe for fabric ink? I have some fabric ideas brewing)
And heavens! Maybe I could even make a small impact on this beautiful Earth of ours!
Now Chickpea who is nearly 11, has sprouted like a bean
and I must get her some jeans.
As I have as much creative ability with a needle as a hippo,
I imagine I shall be hitting Etsy, Big Cartel...
and the thrift shops in the next few days!
In the mean time - don't forget I'm drawing the
giveaway competition this evening.
6 little mitts will be delving into a big box to pull out 3 lucky papers
graced with inspiring words
There is still time until 7pm in Toulouse that is!
A tout à l'heure ...
