#497 down home amy


down home amy makes these very sweet baby goods. I love her illustrations and the way she prints them on basic colored backgrounds. Amy also has a nice line of household goods and all the printing and sewing is done in her studio on the east-side of Vancouver, Canada. You can visit either her blog, shop or website to get a good feel of her work.

#495 plastisock wall pocket in our room


Hello everybody...I'm really looking forward to a new week, starting with a picture of our own home...I finally got a change to hang our plastisock wall pocket in the boys bedroom...I bought it over at ittikid a long time ago and I'm still very happy with it, perhaps even more now when it's actually hanging on the wall. I'm a big plastisock fan. The bold graphics and colors with a Scandinavian tradition really appeal to me. Of course I love to combine the strong prints with softer and more basic items. Lode also loves to wear his robot shirt and the Lions...and I must say as a mum I'm very pleased with the quality of the materials! Plastisock was created in 2005 by Malin Jarbo and Emily Willman.


I have placed some of my own old theather puppets...not all, becasue some of them were so scary looking. Can't believe I actually dare toplay with them when I was a child :) and if you curious to know which books are hanging there then click here and here :)
