Making Something out of Nothing

We returned from a long weekend in Paris yesterday, where there was so much to inspire me. I am ready to get started on more sewing and blogging.  Meanwhile, this little display in a Mercerie (haberdashery shop) caught my eye because it was a simple idea for a display.  Little organdie bags (for favours or jewellery) were hung on a small wooden fruit crate and dangled in the window.
My husband said it was making something out of nothing, a gift his mother had as she lived through two world wars, rationing and early widowhood.  She was always chic, even on a budget.
In the background you can see the lovely buildings across the road reflected in the window.

  1. I find that fruit crate endearing. Very simplistic but stylish. Good on your husband for spotting it.
