New duvet cover and pillow

So I have fallen completely in LOVE with this new batik fabric and I decided that it would be absolutely beautiful as a duvet and pillow cover for a baby/toddler. Is it just me or is the bedding available in stores made in fabrics with the most awful or predictable Mumin trollen or Tummelisa (aka Moomin or Thumbelina). One can actually make a set that will be appreciated by the child as well as the adults...just look at this!

Pimped IKEA stool

So Ebba needed a stool in the kitchen and friends of our had bought these stools at IKEA and they were super popular with their kids. I wanted to spice it up a little as it comes "au naturel". An hour later and some wallpaper and decoupaging et voilá the stool looks really snazzy....and yes I'm aware of the fact that the top piece is upside down...arrrgh!

New Owls Hand Made by PilLove

New owls are now available on the webshop. These are a hand made by moi and are a little bigger (approx. 10 cm) than the smaller ones I buy from Malasia and softer. More plush and big enough to rest a little tired head on. They all have names and a specific personality, which one will you choose?

New Lamp shades for the Living room

So I have been wanting to buy a pair of velvet shades for our lamps in the living room and I finally found a pair that works really well (although I would prefer if the inside had been lined with another color besides white...I could see them lined in musterd/gold which gives that soft warm light mmm....I like. Anyway...they still bring a whole new vibe to the room ...I say welcome to our elegant boudoir ; ) Although it is still a little too bright to be a boudoir with white walls and white sofa ; ) We'll need to work on that...hmmm or I will have to dream about it as it will never happen if my husband has anything to say about it! (To be honest most of the time he doesn't.....buuuut I try my outmost not to TOTALLY run him over when it comes to decorating. I try to remind myself that he lives here too...even though decorating wise you wouldn't be able to tell : )

Anyone out there?

Can't believe that 2 years have past already...

Sometimes I feel like I'm having this monolog with myself since I seldom get any comments on my posts (I'n not complaining...just feeling lonely in my small blogger bubble). So this post is for all of you who takes the time to say...well anything really *smiles * (I'm not picky - believe me!) Big hugs to all of you!

But honestly one does feel kind of stupied or self-absorbed publishing all this information that I have no idea if anyone is reading or even interested in knowing anything about. It's silly really. I feel like Julie in the movie Julie & Julia when she writes on the blog; "is anyone out there?", "is anyone reading this?" *smiles*
Ahh well it does give me the opportunity to make my little mark in the world - a very very teeny tiny one - but hey it's still a mark!
Hope you're all enjoying your weekend. We had the most wonderful weather today...feels like spring is in the air even though the temperature is just below freezing. Our daughter is turning two towards the end of March and we're planning of having a picnic in the garden even if we have to wear our winter gear; coats, hats, gloves and all *smiles*

Lots of love,
