✿Souvenir from Paris

My friend just visited Paris and she offer to bring something back from Paris.  
Yes, I love Ladurée and that's what I requested.  ♥ ♥ ♥

I also collect these Ladurée empty boxes and... voila, here is a new additions to my collection !

I love going to Ladurée, one in St Germain especially the upstairs.   It's so chic and feels like I can spend all day there reading books and writing letters while enjoying the sweets.

Here are the macaroons.  They got little damage while they travel but still cute, aren't they?

Merci beaucoup, Rahnel!!

✿Dot Obsession

Driving on Santa Monica Blvd in Beverly Hills, I found this dot sculpture and I suddenly noticed it was a work by Yayoi Kusama.

I like her art works but I never seen one 
in real life so I had to step out the car to see it. 
Yayoi kusama is a Japanese Artist who obsessed with dots and she has been doing dot art from her early childhood.
2007, Hymn of Life: Tulips

I was wearing my dots slippers that day ! 

I love dots as well and  make lots of ceramic art with dots.  I will show you sometime!

✿Visiting Millinery Shop in L.A.

While I was in L.A., I visited California Millinery. 
I was very excited to visit this place ever since I found it on line. I never been to "Millinery Shop" before and I know there are not much left anymore.  I usually buy supplies in the fabric shops  and online.
The person who was working there told me that his boss bought this shop in the 1980's but this millinery shop exist since the 1930's.

I thinks it's amazing that it has a long history and still in business.  I respect that so much because I know how hard it is to even just stay in business for all these long years.

I found some interesting trims, veils and grosgrain to add to my hats and I was very happy that I could visit this place. ♥
