I have just had to rush over from Flickr to add some work from a brand new Flickr friend, I don’t know how she found me but I’m glad she did! Wonderful hand painted, embroidered and beaded blouses from chou.diane. Diane has an Etsy shop called Hibou Caillou Chou. Below you will find some images of Diane’s work from both Flickr and Etsy.

Just beautiful work. I would love to wear all of these! Diane describes herself as a “paysagiste, illustratrice et bricoleuse du dimanche” (landscape gardener, illustrator and ‘Sunday handywoman’ which I think must mean that she works on her handmade items at the weekend, in other words part time! I told you that my French was terrible, excuse the literalism, if anyone can help me out here I would be grateful!). What a lovely way to finish this post, I will be keeping a very close eye on Diane’s Flickr site and Etsy shop. Head over heels again!

    thanks you so much for this article!! I found your flickr by reading “design is mine” blog. and i immediately fall in love with the creatures you make, especially the fish boy! your translation is not at all literal:I’m a landscape architect, and i do some illustrations and handmade items on the week-end. 🙂
    thanks again! (and sorry for my English…)
