When we were in Paris last month I actually didn't do too much shopping as far as hitting up the usual boutiques like Dior and Chanel. Instead I enjoyed finding off beat little shops hidden on small alley ways and streets. During my little excursions I found a true gem by the name of La Boutique De Louise.
They have all sorts of unique and creative items for the house and I had a hard time not bringing back one of everything! Since I had to consider the fact that I had to find a way to get it all home, I only picked out a couple goodies but I definitely plan to order online again in the future.
This cute little night light was for Wren and she LOVED it. In fact, we carry it around when we do errands at times she is so attached to it.
This oven mitt wasn't your typical souvenir, but I was in love. And with my mission to bake and cook more this year it seemed fitting.
As did this tea towel by La Cerise sur Le Gateau (the cherry on the cake) by Anne Hubert. I am so glad I discovered her creations because I am a huge fan now. I actually ended up framing this one since. All her creations have a touch of whimsy, fun and happiness.
The polka dot pillow is another one of Anne's creations.
As is this pillow Wren hijacked from my Eames chair. What can I say, the girl likes to decorate!
I fit a couple more goodies in my suitcase (like my first Diptyque candle!) but for the most part this was the total of my shopping.
But there's always next time, right?
