14 joyful things for your November!

14 joyful things for your November!

Sending you into the new months with some really cool stuff. Reads, finds and interiors. November is (nearly) here and I know… it is not everyone’s favourite month of the year.

So let’s just believe that the golden autumn weather will stay and in case of grey skies and rainy days… you can just enjoy this list.
By the way – are you all set for Halloween today?

I am so curious on what will happen here in London. Because in Sweden Halloween was not (yet) a big deal. Some parties, mostly at school, and maybe a bit of decoration at home. But not much trick or treating…
The kids are super excited, of course!

paperless card
We used these pretty e-cards from Paperless to share our new address with friends and family. Everyone loved them and lots followed our invitation to send a little card for our arrival at the new house. The children were so happy to find some snail mail when we arrived.
And the designs are so cute, that we will use them for holiday cards again! You can find designs from Rifle Paper, Marimekko, Kate Spade and many more…

Home inspiration!

These Little Treasures – Wish Pixies

These Little Treasures - Wish Pixies
Just before Christmas we received a little box all the way from Australia. And when we opened it we met four little friends. Pixies to be precise.
The box come from the memory makers, whimsy creators and childhood dreamers of These Little Treasures.

‘The new range of Wish Pixies that we have recently released expand on these values and aim to help children overcome the challenges of growing up. Each doll has a tiny Pixie Pocket on its back which can be used by the parent to leave messages of encouragement to the child.’

These cute little friends are made of cotton/linen fabric and are printed from an original water colour painting. Sweet little cotton jersey dangly legs, fine tulle wings, felt ears and other exquisite details.

They are really a little magical and a lovely little gift!

For Josephine we found a Pixie Bebe that we had to wake up. It was sleeping, probably all the way from Australia, in it’s little bed.

Ah, I love little things like this. Beautiful whimsical and perfect to sit on a shelf or chair next to your bed. For sweeter dreams and big wishes!

Let’s Party

Let's Party
Good Morning!
After all the celebrations and anniversaries during the last weeks, I thought I will do a little party round up. There is always something to celebrate and I, for example, usually stock up on party essentials like paper plates&cups or confetti and balloons when I spot some lovely ones. So I never have to run out and buy for the moment.

And since the festive end of year season is really not that far away anymore, here are some ideas for good outfits and accessories as well.

I am especially fond of the birthday cake cushion, such a fantastic idea!

Top row from left to right:

1. Sophisticated layered pink dress that is perfect for twirling!

2. Anemone PomPom headband – a party is always a good occasion for special headbands.

3. Party Mary Janes for twinkle toes! The sparkly bindings will help make every outfit extra special…

4. Party must-do: Confetti Balloons!

5. Very special Pompom Headband.

 

Bottom row from left to right:

1. Sparkling Cake Topper

2. XL Birthday Cake Pillow & Happy Birthday Crown

3. Oversized Tulle Dress in Powder Pink {also available in black}

4. Smart blazer with fancy pocket flaps and a fun lining

Leonor’s & Josephine’s birthdays

Leonor's & Josephine's birthdays

September is a very busy month in our house {not that the others are boring …ha…}.  Back to the routine after the summer break, the husband always very charged with work and two birthdays to celebrate.

Leonor and Joséphine are exactly one week apart with their special day. Leonor turned 5 this year which meant that she threw her very first party with friends. A small, cosy and very selected party because for a long time she was not sure if she actually wanted one. My girl gets easily overwhelmed with too many people around.

And the little munchkin turned 2. Unbelievable.

We celebrated. Baked lots of cakes. Sang birthday songs. Decorated the house and saw happy eyes and lots of laughter.

Funny enough one brand – House of Jamie – that I got to know and followed since their first steps, celebrated a big anniversary two. They also turned 5 and launched a special Party Collection!

I still remember when I first met Barbara in Amsterdam and her then headquarter – her living room. With baby Leonor in tow. 5 years on, we celebrate and I can see my girls in these adorable tulle dresses and see why I love my job so much. Congratulations House of Jamie, it is so exciting seeing your journey.

Boho Baby Heaven

Boho Baby Heaven
Good Morning! Today I am taking you on a boho journey. I think it is a great way to start a new week and when I discovered this etsy shop last week I was smitten straight away.

Boho Baby Heaven was founded by Mariann & Inez, a mother-daughter duo based in Debrecen, Hungary.

Their creative adventure really took off when Inez became pregnant with her son, Milán, almost 6 years ago.
Inez was never a fan of dinosaurs, robots and cars for little boys and could hardly find things that she really liked in the shops.
Together with her Mum they started to gather ideas for Milán’s nursery and got amazing feedback from their friends.

This led them to consider the opening of an Etsy shop in 2013…

In 2016 the shop became a bohemian style makeover and today you can find original designs that are handmade with love and great attention to detail.

Creating heirloom soft toys, blankets and baby sleeping bags, play-mats that can be cherished and passed down to generations to come.

I really like those first birthday bibs – the embroidery is stunning and this really makes a great photo prop that can be used afterwards.

The Llama mobiles are the cutest and just love who these two created such a charming universe.
