The second time around we will be at the fantastic FAD right in the center of Barcelona: actually oposite to MACBA and CCCB – two of the great modern museums here in town. The event will take place the 30th november – 1st of dicember. The doors open at 11 oclock and closes at 21 hours so you have plenty of time to come shopping your Christmas gifts as organic baby wear ( us! ), cool wall art, beads and jewellery, photography and clothes, items for the home and hand bags etc made by Etsy sellers living and creating here in Barcelona and near by.

Do stop by if you have a minute a two, hang out, drink a beer….

Check out the event on Facebook too!

Christmas gift

Jane Eleni has the most wonderfull idea how to reuse your childrens favorite drawings. I am considering to seriously send some of my sons art to her to make one of these collages that are so decorative for any room in your home and what a great why to ‘save’ a memory. Hang it on the wall!!!!

Shop – La DE Dah Kids

Roaming the blogs I just found out about this lovely on-line shop from down under called  La De Dah Kids that makes tons of super cute things in croshet for your baby! I am in love with the blue and white stripes: the bucket for Milos toys would just be perfect and the little stripe monkey for hugs and the rug for under his bed. Yes I can just see it in front of me……Christmas is soon right?

Teddy bears

My oldest son got from his grandparents when he was a born a teddybear named Alfred. He was chosen and stuffed with love and he even has a red woolen heart beating inside his now rather worn teddy bear body. Indeed all the teddybears around the world has been very much loved – a safe home when the night comes and it is time to sleep. Someone who will allways protect you agains all evil, especially the monster under the bed.

The other day I found these portraits photographed by Mark Nixon of much loved teddy bears that has now become a book and thought to share them with you. I am thinking to make one of Alfred as well. He deserves it!
