Two days in France

Our last weekend was spent in Lille, in the north of France. Lille is a charming little town, with lots of nice houses and beautiful shops. I took a few snapshots here and there, but to be honest, I was way too busy shopping and eating...




I bought books of course:
"Petunia" by Roger Duvoisin, a story about a very silly goose


"Paris", by Miroslav Sasek, a long time favourite of mine.


A book with patterns for cloth dolls and their wardrobe. My daughter is not playing with dolls anymore, but I couldn't resist...


And finally, a book with blue embroidery patterns.


The two craft books were published by Marabout, they have nice craft books and cookbooks too.
