What a fantastic idea. A dollhouse made of an old suitcase which is also portable. We had a suitcase just like this which I gave away and now I really regret it. The girls would have been ecstatic over this.
Well, if you have a suitcase lying around and want to make this, head over to My Poppet to get the full scoop on the step-by-step.
Have a great weekend and if you are in the same hemisphere, Happy Spring!
What wildly quirky dolls from Malaysian artist, Evangelione! Each doll is handmade and each completely original. And not only does Evangelione make dolls but tote bags and she also paints. Just an incredibly creative person. Here is her online shop. And her Facebook page has interesting photos of her sharing her whole fascinating process. You will see some of her other items on there too.
Well, the Serbian Rockstar of British Fashion, Roksanda Ilincic has done it again with this season’s offerings for her kidswear line Blossom Spring Summer 2015. Her color blocking that she is known for (and which is reminiscent of the Sonia Delaunay) takes the front line here and she has added some interesting quilty looking fabric for a very sculptural look. And only the third season in, she has really found her stride in this more evolved collection for girls.
I blogged about her a while back right here. (Take a look at the all-time fave dress she designed for Dutchess Katherine.) And scroll down for yet another winning Kate Dress.
This wonderful photography from Jen Carver in the latest edition of Babiekins really blew me away. Especially the photo above. So dreamy and mystical. The garments are by Junk Gypsey, Jak & Peppar, Free People and Vintage Finds. It’s nice to see a lovely tween shoot happening.
Here’s a brand new French brand just for the boys from the people who brought us Billieblush, the girls equivalent label which has been around for a couple of years and is going fairly strong in Europe.
Billybandit appeals to all that is boyish. yet colorful, playful, sporty and exciting at the same time. Very refreshing to see a label dedicated to boys that is not resorting to standard esthetics. And with a mid-range price point, very appealing. You can find the first range on Children Salon.
What a fabulous idea from Czech company, Pepeto. They create customized foam and felt scenery and houses for Ikea train tracks or any tracks of the same style. Such a great way to avoid having all of those wooden houses and trees by the wayside that always get knocked over. Take a look at their page in English and see how you can order this sweet set.
What has caught my eye today? These floral, retro wallpapers and decals by Dutch company, Inke. They not only make contemporary but retro inspired wallpapers, but decals made of actual vintage wallpaper, and you can also find bedroom linen, lamps and books. Here is their online store to check out all of their loveliness.
If you are on the lookout for some unusual and special Easter Eggs, here they are. The message in the egg (above) is definitely original and really not that difficult. What kinds of eggs will you be making or decorating this Easter?
