Joel is a brilliant artist and a great dad. On his blog?, he posts about toys or craft projects he’s making for his kid. The projects are always fun and clever and I can’t wait to be able to do the same with the small one. I love the Paper city vehicles and the Halloween box scene. Because I felt so inspired this week… I had great plans for this week-end: I had planned to create nice dolls like those ones for my little girl. I had planned to go out it the snow and have fun. I had planned to paint and drink a nice cup of hot chocolate. And I had planned to work hard in the evening once she was asleep so I could finally share my new project here. But instead I started to get a cold, went marching in Dublin’s street to protest against the government, got frozen feet and ended up with a bad cold and temperature. So I didn’t do any of the things I had planned, I’ve spent most of the last days in bed. We should have a law against being sick during the week-end.

So I absolutely adore Stella McCartney for kids. It’s brilliant and girls can wear pretty clothes that don’t make them look like big tarty meringue. There are actually a lot of items I’d love for myself and I really wish I could wear those yellow boots!

I love those pictures (especially the one in the middle): cute kids, great clothes by Talc! I know they are a bit of  “Parisian bobo”, but I don’t care, I really like the style!

This was just too funny, I had to share! Thinking about getting one for the little one for our next holidays, though she’d totally prefer having a real camera by now!

Too cute? September 5, 2009

Our daughter rarely wears shoes… well, she doesn’t walk yet, so it’s best for her to be bare feet while she learns (plus it’s just so cute to see her grabbing toys with her feet first). But now that I’ve found those adorable shoes I feel like it would be nice for our baby to wear complete outfits that includes shoes (and I won’t look like a bad mum with my daughter cruising around without shoes… and most of the times without socks).

The Fall collection from Oeuf is brilliant! The colours are lovely and they don’t make kids looking like they’re out of a Disney movie. And the style is cool but won’t make your child look like a total freak among his peers at day care! Of course I love the Angel sweater… I want to be home now… I miss my little one too much!

Donna Wilson’s knitted creatures are so cute! They’re odd and unexpected but they’re so sweet. My favourite, well my favourites are Tina and Terry. Terry is a worrier, Tina is sly. Terry like thinking, Tina likes playing tricks on Terry. Terry dislikes loud noises, Tina dislikes bad breath. It’s a little early to think about our daughter first birthday, but Tina and Terry could be a very nice present.

For once I’m thinking that pigeons can be cute and aren’t just flying rats! Those pigeons are from Kate Sutton. Her Etsy shop is here and you can see more of her work here.

Oh I love this! It’s so gorgeous! I can already see little one wearing one of those (and ruining within 10 minutes, because it wouldn’t be fun otherwise). The top starts fitting around 8 months and continues to grow with the child up to 5 years! Plus it’s reversible!
