Petite Provencale tout cousu main

I love Provence and have spent many of my childhoods summer discovering its particularity.
A rustic elegance, warm summers and time that went by slowly.

Colors, odors, fruits, vegetables, oil and sun-blessed bread...
a rich awakening of senses for any little child.

I like to dress as an modern Provencal and I am in great admiration of the beauty of the ancient way to dress, especially the comtadin costume from Comtat Venaissin.

If one is lucky one can see during a celebration, a crowd with young and old, proudly wearing
 handsewn traditional costumes were peasants, artisans and bastidanes happily melts.

 My doll waits for her little "coiffe" and a straw hat to protect from summer sun.

for now...A bèn lèu...à bientôt!
