Christian Lacroix Travel Notebook

My Mum and I took an impromptu trip into the city (Melbourne) the other day and while we were there had to take a detour to her favourite store, a French Fabric/Craft store called L'Uccello. While she was busy consulting the store assistant about a quilt that she'd been making I noticed these amazing notebooks that they had in stock by Christian Lacroix. There were two absolutely gorgeous travel journals, and one in particular that I just had to buy. Every 'chapter' there was an beautifully illustrated page dedicated to a particular city, each with a particular part that moves. On the Paris page there's a little hot air balloon that moves across the top of the page. How adorable is that?!

The only thing I was worried about was what I would put or write in the notebook that would be special enough. One idea that I had was that I could write some of my favourite recipes in there, so it would be something that I could keep forever. 
What do you think? What would you put in a special notebook like this? 


  1. Before I heard your recipe suggestion it was exactly what I was thinking! What a gorgeous journal, the shop sounds cute too! :)

    1. Great minds think alike! It's really the only thing that I can think of that I would want to keep forever.
