My beloved cocedama and book bestseller. When I saw it 2 years ago for the first time, it reminded me instantly the little prince & his baobab… and there was no plants deco at that time, so I made it myself (as usual) inspired by original little prince illustrations ❀ and I couldn't leave him there living alone 🦊. I have a feeling that I am not the only one there who loves this amazing book. and that is why I decided to make it for you guys, that share the same passion, available on my store. I hope they will make your day more beautiful, the same as it makes mine.
