NEW Children’s painting set added to the boutique!………………..
We just added a lovely new painting set to the French Blossom boutique – only €9.50. This version is more compact than the original painting set as many people asked us for a smaller version, believing something smaller would be easier for their younger children to carry around in their bags or on travels.
This new painting set is also designed by Nathalie Lété and her colourful illustrations can be seen on the cover plus on the inside of the lid. With 6 different paint colours to choose from and two different paint brushes, this little paint set is certain to keep little Monet artists busy for hours !

D.I.Y Paper windmill by La Maison de Loulou………………………..
If you love D.I.Y as much as we do, then this paper windmill is perfect for you! Created for our friends at Petit Poulou by La Maison de Loulou, this clear and easy to follow tutorial will allow you to have your own wonderful windmills in a matter of minutes.
Over the weekend we tried this project out for ourselves using different coloured pastel papers and on different height sticks. In a group blowing outside the windmills look great and they are so relaxing to watch as they twirl in the light breeze.
