Toile de Jouy, eggs, shoes and wellies

Don't you just love "Toile de Jouy" ? I own two cushions with "Toile de Jouy" but I like to have more of it!


Especially since I've seen this picture in the latest issue of my favourite magazine:

I want the box and the eggs too!

Oh and yesterday I've received a lovely parcel from Kristy with my gorgeous edwardian swap shoe! Kristy I loved everything the shoe, the bag, the lovely tags and the wonderful scrap pictures too! It was a pleasure to swap with you! Thank you very much! x0x

And last but not least I want to show you my wellies, inspired from Marion's photo of her wellies in her blog I've took a picture of mine this morning:

How beautiful, Carol! Toile and roses are two of my favorites things! We just decorated my daughter's bedroom and used black toile and pink toile. And I just love your wellies!

I love them! Marion

Is the shoe handmade by Kristy? It's adorable! Love your wellies just like Marions...hmmm... should get new wellies, mine are just black ones, yak.

Carol said...

Thanks again Kristy and for the scraps too!

Oh Robyn I think you need sturdy leather boots in Australia against snakes etc., right?

LOL @ the "willis" Peggy :D

Terri I'd like to see a picture of your daughters room!

Ah Marion but mudd is what wellies are made for right? Oh no wait or was it rain.

Ulla said...

The Wellies are wonderful, and do tell What Magazine that delighful photo is from... I have a passion for Toile too...

Carol said...

I'm glad you like it too Maggie and Ulla!

It's in the new "Garten Träume" (it means Garden Dreams) magazine for spring. It has no website, because it' only released one time per season, but it is a spin off (offset?) of this also fabulous monthly magazine called "Wohnen und Garten" (= Living and Garden):

Carola, I want to come over and look and play with all your beautiful things! I love these ~ and oh my! those wellies, I think I wouldn't want to take them off ~ They're so pretty!

Sandy said...

Those are the prettiest wellies I have ever seen. Do you really wear them? I would hate to get them dirty.

ms*robyn said...

yes, snakes and spiders !!!

Carol i think you have too much pink. Yes, I do. Pink in wellies, pink in roses, pink in magazine desires, pink in cushions...to name a few; Pink is everywhere and i think you need to embrace other colors of the rainbow. So as a good friend I am offering to help you. First, put all of the above in a box and post it to me. I'll keep it safe here in France. Secondly, I'll mail you a variety of other colors...orange, apple greens, touches of midnight, bits of lemon peel..okay? I knew you would appreciate my advice. Forego the pink by sending it to me.

Love your wellies!! How fun!! Those toile pillows are lovely...

Alice said...

If I had your wellies, the snails would be very happy. They would know that I could never stomp on them in such beautiful boots.

Shannon said...

Love those wellies!!! I want, I want, I want!
