  Dear readers,

 

I come here today to make a confession (it's okay if just reading this, you burst into song, I know two just popped in my mind typing these words...)

 

I'm addicted to Wedgwood since I visited the Victoria & Albert museum when I was 16 (yes, that was a long time ago!).

 

Je dois vous avouer que j'ai un faible pour les objets en biscuit Wedgwood depuis mon adolescence.

Most of my friends believe it's very "kitsch", but I'm with Milan Kundera here, and I love "kitsch".

 

La plupart des gens ici trouve ça vraiment trop kitch, mais, tant pis je préfère le kitsch au bling-bling.

 

So let's open the drawers of my little "Happiness of the Day " (that's how these little desks are called in French) - sorry about the blurry picture taken on a rainy day, a year ago, just to show it off to my mom...(Also, the bedroom is still in the previous owner's state... )

 

Ouvrons donc quelques tiroirs de mon petit bonheur du jour...

 

Now, look what's been on it for a few months now...

Now, having read all these posts about pictures being manely about lighting and being the stubborn spirit I am, I had fun taking a picture at night.

Let's open one more drawer, shall we?

 

Un souvenir d'une journée faite de petites folies avec ma Maman...

It's Hope on her anchor, a very old Wedgwood design, though the brooch itself is only in its thirties!

The last of my Wedgwood treasure is perect for Valentine's Day!

There's one more Wedgwood item I can't show you yet, but I'm so very excited about it (and the story behind it).

 

 

Magali, from the Little White House xxx

 


PS1: I wasn't offered anything from Wedgwood to write this post. All the items are second-hand... But I'm all for a little gift from Wedgwood if they feel like it!

 

Wedgwood ne m'a pas sponsorisée pour cet article, mais si jamais l'envie leur en prenait, j'accepte toute proposition...

 

PS2: I was re-re-re-re-watching The Bodyguard while writing this, so any typing mystake can be blamed on Whitney's then beautiful voice.

 

Bien sûr j'écris cet article en regardant pour la énième fois The Bodyguard, ce qui peut expliquer des erreurs de typo.

 

PS3: There's a nice white kitchen in that film and Kevin Coster's silk tie are just perfect!

 

PS4: Behind the scenes... The picture you were never supposed to see...

Please, don't focus on the mess or on the darkness of the picture or even my still wet hair, but have a look above the dining-room door...  Because the mirror is beveled, in the picture it looks like I have a transom, nice, hey?

 

Donc, vous n'étiez pas censé voir cette photo, mais le hasard fait que le biseau du miroir a créé un imposte virtuel au dessus de la porte de la salle-à-manger. Pas mal pour se faire une idée, non?

 

PS5: Sorry the PS part is actually longer than the post!!!

 

PS6: Joining some parties (with my wet hair!)
