Still thinking about Paris... I thought these snaps of the Eiffel Tower were a bit of a departure from the norm. Taken by J.P. on a mobile phone.

I have been meaning to do this for a while so when I collected the second production run and before I sorted them into colours , I took these snaps. I love components.Designing actual components and conferring with the experts , George , Bob , Jack and Steve about how they are made. And you might not believe me if I told you how many separate processes are involved. They are what we use on our Pillows and Poms necklace ( on our website ) and we are now working on new designs for Coastal Creatives in Bournemouth , a fab shop ! So watch out for more pillows , or flying saucers!

Our stand at the Cercle Republican . Sorry , not a great picture.This was as we were packing up.We drove to the ferry and I thought it was strange when I realised the boat was pulling away FIVE MINUTES after we boarded. The sat nav was showing U.K. time ( one hour earlier which is when we should have arrived for the sailing ) so I was never even worried ! Whew.

...and here is an apartment where the inhabitants were better with watering can than a paintbrush.Notice the way they light the streets in Paris , with a lights mounted on the apartment walls.Thank you to everyone at Workshop , Sammy , Karen , El ,Tak and boys ! And Olivia for bravely running things in our absence.
We are back from a wonderful first show in Paris , at Workshop Paris. Did they get us mixed up with royalty? There can be no better way to start the day than by having the door opened by our lovely doorman.I would go back just to hear him say my name again , and that was before our exhibitor's breakfast!I didn't get a chance to take many pictures but I love the way these 6 storey buildings often have fabulous leafy plants on the balconies but here is an alternative...
