London, New York, Paris

It’s been a while since I posted on here. Running out of thread put a temporary stop to the cupcake piece and my motivation slowed down significantly. BUT. I’m back! I’ve just discovered these pretty designs from Satsuma Street and am desperate to get stitching again!

La librairie Canadienne de Paris / The Abbey Bookshop, 29 Rue de la Parcheminerie, Paris, France. In 1989, Brian Spence, who hails from Toronto, crossed the Atlantic to bring his Abbey Bookshop to an international audience. The Abbey Bookshop in Paris’s Latin Quarter has for the last twenty years become a cultural epicenter for Canadians, Anglophones and Anglophiles from all corners of the world. Although offering a wide variety of Canadian books, its main attraction is an eclectic collection of over 35,000 titles in English ranging from scholarly to popular literature.

I remember walking past this!

ah, ils sont très mignons!

These are probably the least well-dressed Parisian children I saw in my entire time there. Seriously, those kids are stylish. Don’t let these ragamuffins fool you. But I also learned that children who speak French are about a million times cuter than those who speak English.

Can a Computer Tell Us What Makes Paris Look Like Paris?

My brothers bought me one secretly at L’Arc de Triomphe that plays “La Valse D’Amelie”. Brothers: they don’t do the dishes, they eat all your food, but they’re still the sweetest sometimes.
