At work....

It is this happy crazy time again when my mind is ridiculously Christmas oriented. So here I am preparing orders and making cards. These are two models of my new holiday cards. I will show you the entire collection next week and put some on my etsy shop which I've been neglected for too long.
Monchéri whose help is very appreciated, gives a hand for the rosettes making. Monchéri loves his hats...especially at home. (He takes it off to go out.. God knows why). While I'm listening to French radio FIP and gesticulating on French singer Clarika's hit Moi en mieux (which I adore), Monchéri quietly makes his rosettes, listening to Iggy Pop in his earphones....
A few days ago, as he was playing around with the rosettes, trying them on his shirt, he gave me the idea to make boutonnières with them
Monchéri said: mmm...no podrias hacerme una mas masculina? couldn't you make me one which looks more masculine? I think he means, more macho...so it's my challenge for next saturday!


ps: by the way, what do you prefer...the cards or the boutonnières ?

Iggy pop and rosettes, it doesn't get much better than that! lol
Lala, you do beautiful, beautiful work. I melt over the details of your cards. Please let us know, when you fill your etsy shop.
Love you!

I do agree with Christina about your work Lala. It is beautiful as are all your thoughtful and delightful blog posts. As for me, I like the flower on the card, rather than the lapel (boutonnieres seem only to be seen at weddings here nowadays) but I'm so impressed by what you've done with it as a boutonniere!

Hmm it is not an either /or questions it is a how many question for both! I would wear the boutonierre if i could spell it correctly - I am not entirely girley, not even a little bit, and think that those would look very nice on women, too. I so appreciate the fashion sence your lovely lover has- ball caps drive me crazy and I just want to slap them off of every one I see wearing them...that would be a lot of slapping and probably jail time- kudos to your love for wearing decent hats!!

Me encantan las dos cosas, Lala!

Martha said...

I quite like them both!I feel better about my own post knowing that you have posted something Christmasy already.
(My current post happpens to have Noel as the center theme, which I couldn't help because it was a time-line thing.)
There are so many pretty bows one can make, each one with its own look according to the pattern...inspirational

I love them both! The cards are beautiful, and I could just see happy lapels walking to and fro decorated with the boutonnieres.

Your blog is always a respite for the eyes and the mind. It looks like you are feeling better, and so I'm very happy for that.

I also listened to Moi en mieux and really enjoyed it. It was refreshing and different from the usual.

Thank you for sharing your life with all of us!
:)

Wow, you guys make a great team. I love the macho rosette idea--Mon Cheri cracks me up!

Anairam said...

I like the boutonnières best! That is probably because I love brooches and rosettes and that kind of thing. They really are lovely (the cards too)!

DolceDreams said...

Lala, I love them both! Especially the fuschia ribbon with boutonniere...so happy to see you are creating again, you must be on the mend!

A Gift Wrapped Life said...

Your rosettes are adorable and the cards most beautiful. Happy to hear you have recovered and back to blogging.

studioJudith said...

I find the idea of a butonnieres to be totally enchanting!
An moment of instant whimsy, which one could place ... . anywhere.
On a lapel or a wrist or a hat or purse. Don't we all need as many small smiles as possible ?

dutchbaby said...

Lovin' the cards!

Ahh. . .to live in Spain, design cards, and plan beautiful weddings. . .sounds like you've got it made, my friend!

Italo said...

WOW! Come dice Obama! Quel joli travail!!!!!!!

Scarlet said...

Your cards are beautiful and original pieces of art, and I especially like the Happy 2010 design.

If given the choice, I'd go for the rosettes, however, because they're something I could show off everywhere I go. :)
