The Perpetual Spring Collection Revival!

I had initially planned to launch these updated and new pieces last week, but if you’re following my Instagram, I got totally derailed by the TraceTogether token! I started making cosies and simply could not stop, until now. I told myself I will not touch another ball of yarn until I get this done!

So I did! And decided to have some fun with it while I was at it! I found some old photos of the previous versions so I decided to do a before and after with 2 of them.

But first, Tulle Princess!

This is a Perpetual Spring Luxe piece, complete with a girly touch of tulle! Which girl doesn’t fancy a dreamy floral piece?

Tulle Princess in Nude Beige (SGD$42) is a neutral and versatile piece which can be dressed up or dressed down, okay it might just be on the dressier side but still great with casuals! This is a tweaked version of the one I posted in my previous post.

Ivory Rose!

This was “Pretty as a bride” first, before it became Roxy Rose. I decided to name it Ivory Rose (SGD$39) as it sounds more simple and well, who was Roxy?

Black & Blue

Last but not least, Black & Blue! (SGD$39) Okay I didn’t change the name for this one because, you really can’t deviate far anyway.


Black & Blue then and now.

I have lost count of how many versions this piece has gone through! There was also a felt version of this. And now I’ve brought it back and “updated” it again! Unlike the previous version which had a raw edge blue flower, this version consists of 3 handsewn fabric rosettes and 2 singed fabric flowers, one black and one blue. 

Which version do you like better?

If you’ve been following The Perpetual Spring Collection all these years, you would have noticed that I lowered the prices of the pieces (Ivory Rose & Black & Blue included) and I thought I would share with you why I decided to do so…

When I “rebranded” to “Le Petit Cadeau”, we were pretty much in a terrible state no thanks to Covid19. With most people taking pay cuts, losing their jobs and struggling to hang on to their sanity, I wanted to make my pieces more affordable to everyone. After all, being in a pandemic situation doesn’t mean we should stop dressing well and wearing things that make us feel good about ourselves, right? The process of making them really makes me happy and getting messages from you when you have received your orders makes me even happier! I want to spread that love and joy as far as I can.

Remember, you don’t need to dress up for anyone but yourself, and we all know wearing floral pieces kinda makes you that much happier for some reason. :)
I’ll leave you with my latest stop motion animation short video!

Le Petit Cadeau

“Le Petit Cadeau” is French for “The Little Gift”.

A very similar sounding name is “Kado”, and it is believed that those with the name Kado have a pure, wild and fierce heart that is full of love.

Going about every day life, I believe it is not about grand gestures, but all the little things we do, no matter how small that truly makes the difference. Every little win in life should be celebrated, no matter how small. And the simple act of reaching out to a friend having a hard time should not be underestimated.

Just waking up to a new day might be an accomplishment for someone. Sometimes it’s okay if all you did today was breathe.

Technology has taken over our lives, and many of us have forgotten what it feels like to receive a handwritten note especially on a day when you’re feeling down. I hope to change that. Send physical cards instead of Whatsapp texts, they are two very different things. A WhatsApp text is but a text no matter how you word it, but putting in just a bit more effort to send a physical card says a lot more.

“You matter to me, You are worth it,

You are enough.”

I created Le Petit Cadeau with the hope to encourage you to reach out to your friends, even if it is just to let them know that you miss them, make someone’s day with a little gift filled with lots of love! :) ♡♡♡

Sunflowers, the universal flower of happiness!

After much “battling” with technology, to be exact as an IT noob trying to configure name servers and what not, I decided to leave Jeanine Gabrielle as my blog page and rename the store “Le Petit Cadeau”. I think it makes sense since basically everything in the store makes a great little gift for a loved one. You will find my new paper flowers under the “Petite Fleur” tab in store. Of course, you can still shop crocheted items, accessories and quirky goods for your home.

Here are some ideals that this new collection revolves around.

1. They last FOREVER.

Paper flowers are by no means a replacement for real flowers, they are an alternative option. But the fact is that paper flowers are not going to die on you like real flowers do. I always feel reluctant to throw out flowers when they have withered, it just feels so painful to throw away something that was so beautiful just the day before! With paper flowers, you don’t have to worry about changing the water every day or leaving them in the office over the weekend. They’ll be fine on their own.

2. Highly customisable!

In the world of paper flowers, you are limited only by your own imagination. Green roses? Why not?

It allows me to create pieces that are fun and unique in their own way. No two will ever be the same. Have fun! Mix and match flowers and colors or if you’re really have no idea how to go about picking a combination, just let me know what you need and consider it done. :)

3. They can be shipped very “discretely”.

This was one of the main consideration factors for me. Keeping them small means they can be delivered via normal mail which crosses out heavy shipping costs, and secondly, who would expect to receive flowers in an unsuspecting 15 x 15 box? SURPRISE!

4. Minimal Space.

On the topic of size, they also do not invade your space. The pots take up at most a 5cm square of space so they’re perfect for those empty corners too. I make them in such a way that they can stand on their own, of course you can put some double sided foam tape on the bottom to keep them in place as they are pretty weightless. (No they won’t double up as paper weights, unfortunately) I also have “hanging pot” options that you can hang up on your office desk board! Absolutely no vases required.

5. Three Words, Handmade With LOVE.

Crafting is something that has been close to my heart for as long as I can remember. Like I said, it’s the accumulation of small things that people will remember in the long run. Handmade items just have that extra something, knowing that someone put time and effort into creating something just for you. If that doesn’t make you feel special I don’t know what will.

I always include handwritten notes in my orders, it just wouldn’t be complete otherwise!

If you managed to get to the end of this very long post, THANK YOU!

I hope “Le Petit Cadeau” brings you as much happiness and love as it does for me. :)
