Wednesday Wonders ~ La Pomme


...you are wandering along a narrow tree shaded street in a village in the south of France. Lined with character-filled buildings and shops, you spy among them a wee shopfront with a gently peeling painted white wooden door. Irresistably drawn to it, you open the door, peer inside...and what do your eyes behold? A wonderland of soft vintage lace and fabrics, nature-inspired embroidery, and delightful creations that simply ooze comfort, light, softness and balm for your inner child!
This was my experience entering LaPomme on etsy! Apol's comfy, softly colored home decor items (pillows, flowers, sleep angels, sachets) and her Fairytale Plushies for grown ups are perfectly wonderful ~ and, I love the stories that accompany each creation. Many of them will make you giggle!
Exloring La Pomme further, I discovered La Pomme Stories, Apol's second shop where her original stories are collaged into embroidered fabric books and cards...her stories are lovely and inspiring and are 'illustrated' in her unique style.

Why don't you take a walk down that street and peer in her door as well...
