This week we were lucky enough to see Pierre TardifTardif arrive with his paintbrushes !
We have a beautifully sunny day, he created our new window. Do you like it ?
Saturday May 16th between 11am and 5pm, In our Big Shop and Factory at 69 Villeneuve street West in Montréal
All the dolls and stuffed animales are invited and can be accompanied by their owners. (Actually, you might want to fix yourself up a bit – or not- because we’re going to be taking photos).
We’ll pay your taxes on the day of the party, as a special treat. There will also be natural wine, sweet surprises, cotton candy, a banana peel, dolls in flight, the raplaplamobile, my dad and my mom, and orange balloons.
It’s Easter, and we’re going to the sugar bush too.
Here are a few of the magnificent photos taken by Valérieat the boutique this winter.
Okay. Let’s get real. I’m not going on holiday in the raplaplamobile for two weeks in Arizona. So, if you too are spending the holidays in Montréal, I invite you to come to some surpirse fireside workshops with my lover Arnaud and I! We will craft, we will sew, we’ll play dominoes and other games, and we will sip hot chocolate.

The crows who installed themselves in our window display are inviting you to raplapla for halloween.
We want to see your costumes, and we’ll also havecotton-candy and hot chocolate for you. (Pssst… they’re even saying a bit of especial mulled wine will be served to the grownups…).
(Yes, I wanted to use the word ‘especial’ today, we forget about it too often, it really is a word).
So, it’s a date tomorrow, as of night fall.
It’s Thanksgiving, and we are also going to be eating Turkey.
p.s. the boutique is open Monday October 13th.
Monsieur Tsé-tsé is a picky eater, he eats nothing but strawberry soup.
Soon it’s his birthday, he will be 39 years old. (In Tsé-tsé years, the first three years count as 9, and as of the 40th, each counts for 3. In case you didn’t know).
We received these embroidery kits from Kiriki ! The animals are small and cute, just how we like them.
Starter kit (with embroidery hoop, needles and stork-scissors, silk screened animal on organic cotton, stuffing and embroidery thread) $39.
Animal to embroider (silkscreened animal on organic cotton, stuffing, and embroidery thread) $18.
For my birthday I received a mini-Erica-raplapla. It’s Dominique – she helps me in the boutique and sews with me – who made this sized surprised…I adore it.
It’s Canada day, and we are also going to eat pizza.
Alleyway barbeque and strawberry rhubard icecream to celebrate summer, the long holiday, and Erica’s borthday.
