Take a peek dears:
More touring of the house : this is our dining table, a bit colorful, a bit messy, a bit eclectic and that's just who and what we are! I found 'citron flotant' (as we call it - floating lemon) in an oppy. The tiny painting of a loaf is called 'love hurts' and was made by my friend artist Kim in Belgium, it's the only piece of art I was able to bring here. The awesome embroidery was made by a 15 year old artist, he did a whole series of 'war-scenes'! We purchased it through our friends Robert and Lulu, who have a wonderfully creative clothes and accessories shop in St. Kevins arcade on K Road here in Auckland. Check their web-thing : oui-boutique!
And look at how lovely my little model Sian is. She is my friend Tessa's second child, only 3 months old and simply stunning. Truly, Sian has a distinctively rounded and open face. She reminds me of cherry-blossom somehow. Mama Tessa is an actress, and I think Sianie will be at least just as glamorous in the future! She's modeling a 'Fruity pinnie' in red apples and flowery fabrics, for our Etsy shop.
***update : this red apple pinnie sold the day after I posted it on our blog!***
And last but not least : my yummy find of vintage fabrics. I'm going to make fifties-style toddler tops out of them I think... Oh. I'm so in love with the black-and-pink-number, it will end up in Lieveke's wardrobe for sure! And the green-blue-tufts are so pretty for happy children's gear! And the deco-glam-burbon-motif... And the sweety baskets... I'm going to have sooooo much funnnnnn.
Have nice and sunny week!
