Toi Art Gallery

Toi Art Gallery

I like art. I like good prints. I would love to fall in love with a real big {probably expensive} painting. Oil maybe. Something I can imagine to love forever.

So far I have not found that painting but make myself happy with affordable prints. A home without art is like a home without plants and books. Impossible.

And when Karina & Viviana introduced me to their world called Toi Art Gallery I was in love straight away. A paradise with carefully selected artists. A paradise so nicely different to what you see everywhere. If I could, I would hang it all!

The two girls, originally from Argentina but based in California, wanted to focus on South American artists initially but expanded ‘world wide’. Great art needs to have its place!

Josephine’s first birthday

Josephine's First Birthday
Last week was Joséphine’s BIG day. She turned O N E. Yes…. one year ago we became a family of six.

The little extra wonder that entered the world. The sunshine that makes everyone smile. The little girl that we all love!

Was celebrated!

For parties I always love to check out Little Lulubel – Natalie has the best kits, inspiration and lots of little extras like party bags and dressing up stuff.

I wanted something a little soft and girly – the Belle and Boo kit is perfect, we just added a tassel garland {that truly makes such a great difference to the set up} and some cupcake liners.

We baked some very simple vanilla cupcakes – or better Romy did – something easy to eat and hold for the birthday girl.

See the happy birthday girl. This is her. Always happy, always smiling – pure joy, bliss and happiness. Amazing!

And that cute little pointy hat… believe it or not… she was wearing for every meal the two next days… love her to bits!

Beija Flor

Beija Flor

Our kitchen has this beautiful wooden floor. And our kitchen is home to a little lady who only enjoys food she can eat all by herself…

Which means we cover the floor to keep things a little in check. And have a look, there is an alternative to the boring see through plastic thingies. There is Beija Flor!
High quality vinyl mats that re-introduce the beauty of ancient tiles. The patterns are based on authentic tiles rediscovered from the past, each of them very eye-catching and also very modern in their own way. Created in their design studio, each mat is built to last from extra durable and strong PVC resulting in easy maintenance.

They truly have the best vinyl mats. The best. It is so hard to choose just one believe me…

Road Trip Part Two – 12 days in a camper van

RV trip

After our week in San Francisco we went to pick up a camper van (RV). There are various reasons behind it – being able to get away from the coast is one, trying something new is another and going on a little extra adventure that the kids will love was a BIG one.

Weeks before we even left they hardly talked about something else. They were drawing camper vans, asked if ours would be the same every time we spotted one on the streets and Romy was super excited that her birthday would fall into the 12 days we had the rolling house.

Mara Mea diaper bag – review

Mara Mea changing bag
Soooooo me, myself and a diaper bag. Nothing super special about that seeing there are 4 kids in the house. But until now I did not own a proper diaper bag. Well, that is not completely true. I did get one when Romy {my eldest} was born. A rather simple dark blue version… but I never used it. Maybe I tried it once or twice… and went just back to “put a few diapers and wipes in my normal bag and done” kinda life…

Until recently.
