leander cradle


Have been looking for the perfect picture of the Leander cradle...and yes I found it through Paul & Paula.

When I was pregnant of our boy Storm I spotted this great cradle already but decided to go for my old crib that my mother still had kept for years. The sentiment and thinking that when I was just little had slept in that same bed made me want to restyle it for our little baby. It is a rotan crib with a nice white fabric inside on a frame with wooden wheels.

But a couple of weeks ago I again saw this cradle in real and yes I fell in love with it again. And now I am in a bit of doubt...shall I go for my old crib again, which of course is very special because also Storm has been sleeping in it when he was a little baby? Or shall I go for this beautiful cradle which I adore so much too?

I have some time to think it over but am curious what you would do?


baby blankets


Last week I spotted these oh so cute and beautiful blankets for babies and kids. The Klippan blankets are made from only wool, cotton and linen. The collection is inspired by the connection to nature and wild life with straight and simple patterns or traditional with a modern touch.

Love the above animal prints or the simple stripes and stars. Would look really great in a nursery or kids room.

Klippan also offers blankets for the home and more. Take a look at their site for more.

Spaghettiii photography


When our little boy Storm was about 9 months old we did a photoshoot at home shot by the oh so nice Tineke. Tineke is photographer and loves to take pictures of children, families and happy people.

Time flies when looking back at these beautiful pictures. We had so much fun that day. It all was in a very relaxed setting with some great natural moments. I think a new shoot will also be planned when our the little baby has arrived. Would love to see Storm with his little brother or sister captured so beautifully.

If you want to see more great shoots by Tineke take a look at her site and blog.
