Confiture De Poeme

confiture de poeme.

Today we celebrate Santa Lucia here in Sweden. The kids dress up, there is lots of singing, gingerbread and coffee for the adults. Cosy!

And therefore I have something very sweet for you here today. The universe of Anaïs Natiembé called Confiture De Poeme.

Beautiful dolls handmade in Lyon, France with a lot of love, details and creativity.

‘My sources of inspiration are often Asian, because I love the Japanese culture, especially the big eyes, often fearful, shy or grumpy.’

I love these very feminine soft sculptures with their slender bodies and small faces with lots of personality! Sweet and well made, packed in beautiful handmade boxes and so full of heart warming details. Think sequin embroidery, pearls and golden threads.
The color and fabric selections are on point and the embroidered touches make these dolls truly special.

Konfetti Kids – new kids store in Barcelona

Konfetti Kids - new kids store in Barcelona
Barcelona is THE city at the moment and if you happen to live there {lucky you!} or planning a trip, then take note now: there is a new kids shop called KONFETTI KIDS that opened just recently in the Barrio Gotico disctrict. And it looks really super inviting and fun.

And so does the online shop by the way, I love the illustrations.

Claudia is originally from Bergamo, Italy.
After her studies she collected some professional experiences in women’s wear, where she had the chance to travel and fall in love with Berlin.
Five years ago Claudia decided to move to Berlin, met her husband Michael and in March 2015  their daughter Lilien was born.

Since Lilien Claudia’s interest in the world of kids wear started to grow. Thinking about quality and good design and how to combine both. The starting point for her ‘project’.

In 2016, the family decided to move to Barcelona and in May this year Claudia found the perfect location for KONFETTI KIDS in a beautiful street of the Barrio Gotico and her project became finally real!

So, yes, the concept was conceived in Berlin and is now based in Barcelona. A concept store for the whole family with a hand-picked selection of international brands for children that reflects her passion for good quality and design.

Die Kleinen Biester

Die Kleinen Biester
When the bat, the unicorn and the rabbit arrived at our house the discussion was big to decide who moves in with whom. The unicorn especially was wanted by several people…

Ing-Marie just added these new friends to her collection from Die Kleinen Biester. Now some of them are here in Malmo with us, to play, test, sleep and to play music again and again. The bat is a music box and very cool. Playing Schubert’s lullaby and lets your baby gently drift into his dreams. A real eye-catcher on the cot or cradle.

All creatures are made from organic fabrics, the music boxes are washable and everyone comes with a heart full of love from the North of Germany.

Maybe one is moving in with you soon as well? The original and creative design, the high-quality workmanship and the attention to detail make Die Kleinen Biester of Ing-Marie so unique.
