a good week

When I look back on this week I think of carnations, magazines, books, coffee and home-made bread, dark chocolate and nuts in a bowl, and bedtime stories told by my seven-year old. My son tests me the day after to make sure that I am indeed listening to his stories and you should see him rolling his eyes when I cannot remember a certain detail. Despite A being away it was a good week, a very quiet one. It got even better when A decided to come home to spend the weekend with us.

One of the magazines I bought this week was Travel + Leisure, the November issue, which I haven't read in a long time. It had a short article about the 3rd district of Paris with interesting addresses. In the article they speak of the Merci store (which I visited and loved) and many other places. I think I may have to plan a day trip to Paris and check them out.

Yesterday when we knew that A was on his way home the kids watched a film and I opened the laptop to discover that I had won the Suzani cushion giveaway on Igor's Happy Interior Blog. This is my first giveaway win ever! Now I'm expecting a beautiful red and colourful hand embroidered cushion cover in the mail all the way from Igor's sponsor in Uzbekistan. My son is super excited because red is his favourite colour!

Speaking of giveaways, have you entered the Besotted Brand giveaway on my blog? Besotted Brand is giving one LatteLisa reader a set of beautiful hand-printed 'thank you' cards. If you are a lover of penmanship and stationery then please feel free to enter the giveaway.

I'm wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
