I have just made a shirt for Mr Petal & Pins from fabric bought on last years trip to Paris.
He has several shirts made from fabric bought on our travels – they make a great memento and back home when I start cutting the cloth i’m taken back to that place and time.
The ‘Paris’ shirt is in a pure cotton from Tissus Reine in Montmartre
and the print reminds me of the tin paint boxes I had as a child.
The colours remind me of Chagall’s painting on the Palais Garnier ceiling.
I’ll enjoy seeing Mr Petal & Pins wearing the ‘Paris’ shirt and reminiscing about strolling around Montmartre stopping for lunch at Le Gascon and drinks at our (temporary) local – Le Refuge.
I also bought these Eiffel Tower scissors – aren’t they cute!

Yes, they were very cute! I did not see everything of this store (I was a bit overwhelmed actually) but look forward to visiting it again soon (-:
