As part of a few up coming changes which are soon to take place here on the blog, I am introducing 'Magpie Mix' as a weekly feature to Mode Madeleine. The posts will generally be mini features on anything that has caught my eye and inspired me, whether it be a quirky boutique, new clothing collection, jewellery, interiors, film, music, art or an event I have attended...the aim is to inspire others with something that has caught my Magpie eye!
I am kicking off the feature with a post dedicated to a quirky little independent home and garden boutique called Les Jolies Choses, located just down the road from my Mother's house in Basingstoke, which is just full to the brim of shabby chic glorious-ness! These images were actually taken last year on my Birthday, and I realised when clearing out and tidying up my photo albums recently, that shamefully I had never actually gotten around to posting them at the time! Since the photos are too pretty to be kept stored on my laptop forever, and I feel the need to share the shop's existence with my readers. Also, since my partner and I have recently been handed the keys to our new flat and I am in the exciting process of gathering personal bits and pieces and purchasing new household goodies, I felt it made the perfect first Magpie Mix post.
