Presenting "Boudoir Chic", a pre-Valentine collection!

With Christmas only just finished (we took the Christmas tree down yesterday!), I was getting a bit tired of using red clay after nearly two months of it.  I wasn't especially looking forward to more red for Valentine's day...

So I decided that I was going make some pieces in a style that I would really enjoy working on for a couple of weeks...more 'play' than 'work'!

And here is what I came up with.  This new collection is infused with a mix of romance, lingerie, lace, bows and hearts.  And cake.  Never forget the cake...

And that's how the collection called 'Boudoir Chic' was born! 

These will be listed on our Etsy store later this evening - around 8pm our time (7pm GMT, 11am PST, 2pm EST).

Noël vient à peine de claquer la porte, le sapin fraîchement est démonté, je me voyais mal me remettre - si tôt - à tripoter de la Fimo rouge pour la Saint Valentin...nan, pas envie.... :)

Du coup, j'ai décidé de me faire plaisir avec des couleurs pas forcémént pâtissières, et j'ai gardé l'esprit "romantique/dentelle/lingerie/coeurs/petits noeuds" et des gâteaux, bien sûr, on oublie pas les gâteaux!!!!!
Une "pré-Saint Valentin .... voilou: la collection "Boudoir Chic", rien que ça!!! et c'est ici dans notre boutique Etsy :)

A closer look at the shelf unit
Don't worry if you're looking for more traditional red miniatures for Valentine's day.   Now that I've got this out of my system, I'm getting those ready for you :)

Bien sûr, maintenant que je me suis bien défoulée, je suis prête à attaquer le rouge officiel, les coeurs et les angelots :) à bientôt les gens!

Galettes des rois - French Epiphany Pastries

The hectic but very enjoyable Christmas period is over, although our Christmas tree is still up (ours is so pretty that we're keeping up a little bit longer!), we're just about done digesting the leftover bûche and whaddya know, it's time for the galettes des rois again!  In the middle of all that, there was the new year so Happy New Year everyone!

Some freshly baked miniature galettes are now in our Etsy store.

Ca y est, les gens, c'est fini Noël, on démonte le sapin (euh.....un jour....bientô est trop beau le nôtre,on le garde encore un peu:), on digère la bûche et hop hop,c'est déjà l'heure de la galette, miam!!!
Les galettes, toutes chaudes, c'est par là
Entre les deux, bien sûr, il y avait le jour de l'an, alors Bonne Année 2014 les gens!!!
