Christmas in Australia...
The other day I was in the grocery store and I saw a big banner with an image of sliced, juicy mangos. In red Christmassy writing the banner said 'The Taste of Christmas'. I had to stop myself from giggling. Having spent all of my life in the northern hemisphere, the taste of Christmas is ...

Paper Cut Maps by Famille Summerbelle (and a new one from Copenhagen!)
One of the treasured art pieces we have in our living room is the paper cut map of Amsterdam by Famille Summerbelle. I just love the details of it (some of them are so cute and funny!) and the concentric shape of the city, with all its canals, which makes it so typically 'Amsterdam'. The ...

Bring meaning to your life. With Love Darling is the first jewellery company to have interpreted the UN Global goals by way of a dedicated collection. At @withlovedarling “we have set out to create a community around our jewellery, curating an experience to live & breathe the Global Goals. Our jewellery is aesthetically pleasing... but also carries a deep rooted meaning and symbolism. It has a higher intrinsic value which is over and above the gold value, as customers increasingly desire to contribute to #sustainability . Our pieces are made in workshops employing #refugees and displaced persons - giving these people an income, a future and hope.” Pretty amazing, huh? Oh wait, they also have a 25% off deal this month, link in bio. #babyccinoboutiques ... link in bio. #babyccinokids

A while ago Esther painted a very dark green square on her living room wall, with the idea to use it to display all sorts of pretty little things: drawings from the children, autumn leaves, our activity advent calendar, a collection of plates or framed art… Things we feel are meaningful and which we like to temporarily display in our living room. The shape of a painted square brings cohesion to the things on display, and the big, dark shape breaks up the wall. So simple and clever! Read more on the link. How do you display your seasonal collections? #babyccinokids #babyccinocrafts
