Keepsakes

I been excavating my magazine scraps and amongst the articles in my hoarding I found this one that I've been keeping safe for a few years now. It is from an old issue of The World of Interiors and it deliciously describes the workings and makings of one of the few bespoke flower and feather trimming producers left in Paris. Bruno Legeron's 'Legeron, fleurs et plumes' I hope if you enlarge the photos with a click you may be able to read this charming piece, if not : ( I hope the pictures will be a treat in themselves. I would love to work for a company like this using traditional techniques, surrounded by beautiful supplies.

Hi! Just wanted to say that I really love your site, actually love both of them! A lot! The collages @ RtD are really inspiring...
Do have to admit that I 'stole' your 'wedding earrings' from opheliax @etsy, last weekend. Found them so pretty and couldn't help but buying them. Sorry!@ ;-)
Bye!

Ahhh, this is SO beautiful! I'd go absolutely nuts if I were allowed in here. The article was great and the site has been bookmarked for future inspiration!!! Thank you, thank you, Jess!

Happy (belated) 30th Birthday! Hope it was a lovely one for you.

What a great article, thanks so much for posting it. I love that kind of thing - the French really seem to appreciate craftsmanship!
