Hej July – my happy finds for the sunny month!

nordic kids room

July is here! Summer is still here and we are following the World Cup, eating our weight in strawberries and dance a happy dance because it is Friday. I was away the two last week ends for trade show visits and I am so happy to spend the upcoming one with my crew.

But before I am sharing some cool stuff from around the world of kids design and fashion. Plus some goodies for mums and other great stuff. Hand picked, for you, with love!

Top: Beautiful Scandinavian children’s room!

Hello! The week is coming to an end, we are heading straight towards Christmas {the kids already asked when we will put the decorations up and buy a tree} and I am planning to make Cinnamon buns from scratch this week end.

So yes, the cosy candle time of the year is clearly here!

I have a few things for you today… that I stumbled upon the last weeks and days. Enjoy and enjoy your precious week end…

The Easter Friday List

eastereggDIY

It is Good Friday today. Are you ready for Easter? I am, especially the long week end part. We will do some crafts over the week end, hoping for an egg hunt outside {but most probably will have to do it in the house if the weather stays} and will have a brunch with friends on Monday at our place…

What are your plans?

Tomorrow I will share how we dyed our eggs. I posted a picture on Instagram and got so many questions. I thought I will share and you can have fun over the week end… stay tuned.
[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]
Above is a cute Easter Egg DIY to get you started… {still lovely without the colouring in case you are out}

 

easter-bunny-egg-cup-DIY

Or this super easy idea.

Cool fashion for Teens.

 

Strawberry-Balsamic-Crostini-with-Whipped-Ricotta

I have seen some strawberries around and if I find some that taste like strawberries – I am really tempted to try this. Looks very yummy and is easy to make… Strawberry Balsamic Crostini with whipped Ricotta. Oh yes!

 

During diner for the next days, when the kids are done and keen to leave the table, I will ask them what they would like to have for the brunch. They will come up with some ideas. AND they will think which they can do themselves. Next step: Writing down {or telling me and I’ll write it down} what we will need…. This usually becomes quite an entertaining conversation.

Make your own Easter Bunny – origami instructions here.

Walnut & Walrus launched their first clothing collection.

Another diner conversation: Where do we go on summer holiday? Leonor wants a big house with a pool. Romy wants to go to Encinitas and Antoine to Santa Cruz {same direction at least}. There are many places we would like to see but somehow {and I think it is for the first time} we have difficulties to ‘nail it down’…

Remember my mummy&me post – here is another cool brand that does lovely MiniMe fashion.

ROO rocking toy

This is ROO – a rocking toy from Riga Chair.

Don’t forget to print our bunny cones.

A few things … {Friday List}

main sauvage

Cabin fever has hit here. Really hard! It’s been a little over 3 weeks with my cast. And even so I can walk without the crutches I cannot go really far. Weather has been bad too. And all this sitting and starring at the screen is driving me crazy.

In a bit I am off to a lunch with a friend {picking me up, I am so lucky} and this week end I will just need to stretch my capabilities and go out. Crossing fingers the weather is with me…

But stop with the whining now and lets have a look at this week’s Friday List! Full of inspiration – kids fashion, kids rooms, news from our favourite shops and brands…

New collection from Main Sauvage! {above}
