Making an art Gallery was the title of one of Sarah Jane's posts on her fantastic blog and I couldn't resist sharing this information with you ... if you go to the post all you have to do is click on the links download the image and follow Sarah Jane's instructions ... most of you know Sarah probably from her gorgeous illustrations, prints and calenders which are all available in her online shop, but I also enjoy reading her blog on a regular basis, because getting advice from a true artist is always fun o get.

A couple of weeks ago my dear friend Jo from Charlie and Lewis brought me to a small atelier/studio here in KL run by the very friendly Nina, not only makes Nina very nice garments for other brands she also has a great baby label herself called JonasJodie ... specializing in very soft sleepingsacks, swaddles and bumpers for the crib ... they are extremely reasonable priced and the quality is just superb, I know from my own experience with little Kiet (who is doing wonderful I can tell you and swaddling him at night makes all the difference!) You can send Nina an email if you have any questions or visit her website to order anything ...

a super lovely new spring and summer collection from BabyBean vintage daywear ... again Christine used the most wonderful fabrics for her designs ... and as always the new collection is crafted from and inspired by vintage fabrics ... in 2004 Baby Bean Vintage Daywear was created by Christine Visneau and
she based in Dallas, Texas ... all designs are made locally by Christine and a few stay
at home moms... love this concept.

Aren't these 'sweet-meats' not fantastic looking? I found them via Misha-Lulu's blog and was immediately in love, not that i'm such a meat-eater, but I just love how these soft toys look ... Sweet Meats are the brainchild of Lauren Venell (nee Fleischer), a San
Francisco product designer with butchers on both sides of her family.
She originally constructed the first “Hambone” as a personal art
project, but commissions for the plush hams became so popular she
decided to bring Sweet Meats to the masses...

Nora just told me about a wonderful and generous sale over at her beautiful shop, Chittypulga, the "star" of the sale has been the clothing department ... savings are huge 25 to 50% off on every single item ... I also loved the sale on these traditional party games, 'pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey-game' and 'the-birthday-party-game' ... they really remind me of my own birthday parties...
