The coolest thing

So browsing the www for inspiration I found the coolest thing. Check out this program that turnes a collection of photos into the sweetest collage shaped as a heart or a circle or any other custom shape that you'd prefer http://www.shapecollage.com/ This is how my little family collage turned out.

These bags

So I have been tempted to buy these weekender bags for ages but can't seem to build up the courage to buy them. You see I think people in general will find them too pricey and now I'm thinking of just treating myself to one. I'm leaning towards bag no 3...what do you think?

The bags are Fair traded made out of Ralli or Kantha quilts. Kantha is the name of the method that these lovely quilts from West Bengal, India are done in. Women in Bengal typically use old saris and cloth and layer them with Kantha stitch to make a light blanket or throw or beadspread. The women who make the quilts - that are turned into these lovely bags - work in a Fair Trade cooperative through which the members earn an income to support their families. A great initiative and buying a bag not only lets you own the most beautiful bag but help support a good cause. Just take a look aren't they beautiful!

If I ever win the lottery

...this is what I'll buy! I saw these module sofa cushions when we where strolling along the streets of Palma (I hadn't a clue what brand they were). Then by chance I saw them in Living etc once we got back home, and voilá, now I know the name of the maker and that they are NOT - I repeat (and silently cry) - available in Sweden. Not that it makes that big a difference since i would have to buy another house first, preferably in Asia, since our house simply wouldn't do them justice. I could see one or two in our daughters room...a nice reading corner perhaps. But then again they would be far too expensive to waste on her room ;-) No, these are for mummy. I can just imagine myself in say Thailand...evening...nice summers dress on and a Mai thai...yupp....that's me when I'm like 60+....ahhh a girl can dream, can't she?

New owls arriving soon

So I've just ordered a new batch of my lovely owls and everytime I look at the pics of the latest ones, they make me smile. They are just the coolest creatures ever and the fabrics and the craftsmanship is superb. Every child should have one and every sofa and bed for that matter. They simply have that je nais sais quoi that we all need to sprouce up our dull furniture with. I only ordered a maximum of 2 owls per design and in some cases only one. I want you to feel that you are pretty much unique in owning a particular design, so if you fancy one in particular you should be quick on your keyboard ;-)

New pillow design soon to arrive

New ABSOLUTELY gorgeous pillow covers by Bonjour mon Coussin soon arriving at the web shop. As usual I only bought a few of each (a maximum of 4 but in most cases only 2) so if you have your eyes set on one, you better hurry! :-) Take a look at these beauties!

Back and rested?...

...hmmm....I'm not sure...I think I could have done a week or two more in Mallorca. We had the most wonderful time and although we had time to relax (as much as is humanly possible with a 2 year old!) and had loads of great wine and food, I could easily have done a couple of more weeks. If we could dream a nice little dream we'd actually buy ourselves a nice litte finca and stay forever ;-)

Up...up and away!

So I will take a little trip for a few days and re-charge my batteries, YEAH! So being a lonely camper i.e. running the business all by myself, I will need to close the shop for this period. You are all more than welcome to place an order, but it will be shipped earliest by the 13th of August. Thank you for understanding! You're the best!

Lots of Love,
