Gifts from Korea..

I love all things about French, I bought Vicki's first book when it came out and was wondering if I could translate into Korean(Yes, my first language is Korean, getting really bad at the moment, sigh~ even my hubby don't speak Korean noticed. LOL). Translating a good English book in Korean is in one of my to do lists. I will need to study Korean before I do that.(smile)

Yesterday, our postman delivered a parcel and I was surprise to find what was in the box.
Korean Version of "My French Life " It is smaller than original book, but look so adorable .
I am excited to read all my Korean Books especially " My French Life " in Korean.

These were what was in the box , all the way from Korea
All about French..

Purple cover book is written by Korean Interior Decorator who travelled Provence for a month.
titled " Houses of Provence"

Inside of " Houses of Provence"

I will have fun reading all these books.
Hope you are having a wonderful day wherever you are.

French Canape & chaise.

Every since I learn how to do reupholstery, I am in love chairs, old and new. Unfortunately I only learnt to do simply chair upholstery since my teacher moved away. I found this lovely canape and chaise on ebay france and wondering should I keep the fabric or change it if these were mine.

It's lovely as is and very cheerful..
What do you think?
Would you change it or keep the fabric??

Have a wonderful day wherever you are.

My Bedroom with the new pillows I made..

I personally love the white furnitures but my bedroom has no white whatsoever, since Mr. chic is not a big fan of white anyway. But I get to add some of my favorite elements such as pink lamps , white pillows.. etc.. My bedroom is not that big .. Just for a bed and two side table.

I love linen and French words, so I made my own accent pillows using two elememts.

This is the window side of the room, and Mr. Chic side.

This is my side as you have guessed with girly desk..
Its a beautiful day in Melbourne, Sun is out.
I have a lot of things to do..
Wish you a beautiful MONDAY..
