So first , 11 things about me :

1. Almost all stuff at my home comes from yard sales ...  , my kitchen and my living room are 50s style , the dining room and the bedroom are 60s ... but i hate the fake today's 60's style ( and it's not snobbery ) .

2. When i was young , i wanted to get married to a baker so i could eat chocolate croissant whenever i want.

3. I like Lefort Openo ,  two french graphic designers who started in the 50s .( )

4. I couldn't live without music : Soul ( the exciters : movin too slow ) ,  Glam Rock ( Iron virgin : rebels rule) ,  Punk Rock ( Vibrators : whips and furs , ) , Power Pop ( the chords : maybe tomorow) ...


and of course 60's sound :
 For Cat who asked this question and who is more into 60s music , this is my top 6 for 60s :
      - The Eyes : I'm Rowed Out
      - The Remains : Don't look back
      - The Unrelated Segments : It's Gonna Rain
      - The Yardbirds : Evil Hearted You
      - The Brogues : I Ain't No Miracle Worker
      - The Seeds : Can't seem to make you mine  

5. I love sun-dried tomatoes and basil ,I love  korean movie, i like to take a big breakfast and then to go back to bed  , windows open and with birds singing . .. very snow white spirit ;) . I change often my hair color , for the moment i 'm a light golden copper blond .
Ok , Ok , i cheat : 8 things about me in 1 !!! Sorry , I wouldn't do it again .


6. My favorite great fashion designers are Louis Feraud and Jean patou  .

7. I would really  like to draw well but i didn't make any progress since ... my first year of primary school.

8. I have played bass for around 15 years but stopped during both my pregnancies so not much progress there! .

  1. Hey!
    Merci de citer le blog et pour ce gentil compliment :)
    J'aime bien le principe de l'article. Il me fait penser aux "chaînes" que l'on recevait par courrier avant!

    1. ouh terrible , les chaines qui portaient malheur si tu ne les suivais pas ... mais qui te permettais de devenir milliardaire dans le cas contraire ( t'as vu où j'en suis maintenant , à ton avis quel chemin ai-je suivi à l' époque ;) ) !
      En tout cas , tout ce qui est écrit dans l'article a été préalablement approuvé par ... ma conscience ! ( pas de commentaire stp ).

  2. Thank you for accepting the award! I love your answer that you wanted to be a bakers wife so you could eat chocolate croissants anytime. that is such a good reason! I love you GIF of your dresses too. Wonderful!

    1. thanks a lot Cat . I didn't know the Liebster Awards before you gave me one , it's a good way to know a little more about people .
