I was lucky enough to attend the Artissano launch event a couple of weeks ago here in NYC and loved what this online shop does! They actively seek out original and worthy designers and make them available in their beautiful shop. They have a great selection of jewelry, handbags, accessories and even menswear.
And the people at Artissano have personally chosen some picks for the Holidays just for Bellissima Moms! So, here they are!

My girls are so in love with these Amelia dolls from A Girl For All Time as you can see! They were positively squealing with delight when they opened them…and don’t want to put them down. They have already been loving their Matilda dolls for a year now and really take care of them which shows how much they care about them. (I reviewed the Matilda doll right here.)
These exquisite dolls very rightfully were nominated ’Playdoll of the Year 2013′ by DOLLS Magazine which is the top publication in the collectors sector, which is really kind of like getting an Academy Award nomination in the doll world! And the good news is that it’s still not too late to order these for Christmas. If you are in the Europe, you have until December 21st, but if you are in the US, make sure you get your order in by December 17th!

To celebrate a birthday and see what the art world’s up to, we visited Venice – which is quite beautiful in October! (Okay, so a bit late posting this. But better late than never!)
We rented the third floor of the wonderful Palazzo Albrizzi in San Polo, close to the Vaporetto Station San Silvestro. If you go to Venice, you must take a watertaxi from the airport – you will never forget your first terribly decadent arrival in this wonderful Italian city. During our stay, we discovered the lagune and, of course, went to the Biennale. The entire city offers art in every form – from exhibitions at the Biennale pavilions, in palaces, museums and gardens! The kids enjoyed it more than I expected. Keep Reading…

The girls and I are all equally enchanted by these magical pop-up books by the super talented Yevgeniya Yeretskaya whom we were lucky enough to meet at a Books of Wonder event! Her illustrations are in a word, magnificent. They remind me of the vintage illustrations in picture books of days gone by, yet with a modern edginess and color palette that is delectable. And the pop-ups bring them to another whole level.
We picked up The Snow Queen
and also Woodland Christmas
. And I also did a short interview with Yevgeniya. Scroll down to read about her inspirations for these gorgeous books.

I just discovered this exquisite online store, Little Cabari. Each product in it is made in a traditional way, by hand or to measure. I respect that personal and real way of making things and also absolutely and truly love every single item in their shop! Here are a few but make sure you take a visit to their website to see it all!They have linens, toys, rugs, wallpaper, and other wonderful things.
