By now you probably all know that Pia Jane Bijkerk has published her first book.
I was lucky enough to see an advance copy of Paris: Made by Hand when I visited with her in Amsterdam last month. And, oh my goodness, it is LOVELY!
She's found all sorts of little artisanal shops in Paris and grouped them by 'wanders' - so if you want to use it as a travel guide, you easily can, with plenty of time to stop into a cafe. It's as beautiful as her blog and makes me want to go back to Paris immediately.
So if you're planning a trip, or if you just want to dream, please do take a look at Paris: Made by Hand
Congratulations, Pia! Well done!
My second link for this week is even more personal than 'my friend has published a book'. In fact, it's 'my sister-in-law has started a blog' and I couldn't be more pleased.
Catherine Craig is an amazing artist in fibre and clay. Her blog highlights her work and the processes behind the finished pieces.
Hope you're all having a lovely lazy Sunday!
