I love this Etsy seller! Sonia, whose shop is called so thoughtfully, Cozy Memories. I first ran across her jam jar covers on Flickr (searching 'linen', I'm obsessed, I swear). Then I found her Etsy shop, and she has just a lovely selection of sweet little items, each exactly the sort of thing that makes my eyes happy. Lots of linen and lace with a charming French domesticity that is always so effortless.
The best, though, is her blog, gorgeous and colourful and lively. I have a little dream that we will retire to France someday...not so crazy, as it's only a boat ride away and we escaped the mortgage trap here in Ireland. I love Ireland but I would love to have a little more sunshine, a little bit nicer food, and maybe some of that charming, lazy, effortless domesticity. Sonia's blog, Cozy Homemaking, feeds that fantasy for me...and when I started clicking on her friends blogs (many of whom I recognise already from their beautiful art and photos!), it all just left me wistful and convinced that my little dream is one I should nurture and prod at as much as possible.
If you are feeling cozy and French now, spend an hour reading through her blog and blogroll! Such a treat.
