The weather was so warm and sunny this past week that I found it hard to stay in, be good and work on anything for very long. So I took a walk and visited the local thrift shops. There are three within a short walk from our apartment. I was looking for some shelves but had no luck.

Instead, I got myself a new teapot, because you can never have too many of those! The plates are for my mosaics, of course. At another shop, I found some gorgeous vintage linen from the 1940s. It feels wonderful, crisp, starched, a tight weave. Printed on the side is “Toile Metis Lin” “Fleur Bleue”.

I’ll have to find a project for this fabric!
