La famille herisson

For a while now we had been looking for a cute carpet to put at the entrance of our little house. The other day, we finally found it. Isn't it cute? And it reminds me of the book by Muriel Barbary, "The elegance of the hedgehog", that I already told you a bit about here.

<<Madame Michel has the elegance of the hedgehog: on the outside, she's covered in quills, a real fortress, but my gut feeling is that on the inside, she has the same simple refinement as the hedgehog: a deceptively indolent little creature, fiercely solitary - and terribly elegant.>>

 and in the original:

<<Mme Michel, elle a l’élégance de l’hérisson : à l’extérieur, elle est bardée de piquants, une vraie forteresse, mais j’ai l’intuition qu’à l’intérieur, elle est aussi simplement raffinée que les hérissons, qui sont des petites bêtes faussement indolentes, farouchement solitaires et terriblement élégantes. »


  1. Oh, so cute! :)
    Talking about synchronicity! One of these days I was looking at our door mat and thinking... This is not right, I need something more personal here. And I started looking for something.
    I even pinned this

  2. Oh, and this I've been loving for so long...

  3. @ Ines, wow that is so funny that you are searching for doormats as well. I love love love the colorful one, and using spray paint is a super good idea!
