What would be a nursery without a crib mobile?

They say they’re useful for babies to develop vision and tactile skills. But I say they’re useful for moms too, ’cause they look so cute you really can’t help giggling when you see one of them!!

The best news is… you don’t have to spend lots of money to have one, you can easily make one yourself!! Since I actually didn’t make one myself for my baby, I’m just trying to inspire your creativity with the following gallery of images… Each and every one is simply gorgeous!!!

Ok, so now I know. I will never, ever, buy shoes with shoestrings for my daughter again. They are ALWAYS come undone!!

But since I liked this pair of shoes a lot, I couldn’t give up at the idea of giving them away. So… I pimped out the shoes with a bit of creativity and I’m enthusiastic about the outcome: they won’t untie anymore and they’re even prettier!!! 😉

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing an easy DIY project: a flower box to be put inside your baby’s nursery or everywhere else in your house! Let’s say you have a bright and cozy spot in your home where you love spending relaxing moments sipping a coffee… why not cheering it further up with some colored flowers in a window box? I love the idea!!

You simply need a plastic flower box, floral foam and fabric flowers. I chose daisies and tulips since they are my favorite, but you can obviously pick whichever you like and also make them yourself! … Read more...

The idea of writing a blog was still taking its shape into my mind and I was already overwhelmed by notes, reminders, random notebook pages, sketches, etc. Well, the good thing is that the ideas were freely flowing but… what a mess!!

So, I immediately started to look for some kind of organization and I found myself urging the help of a “Blog planner”. Well, turns out I’m not the only one, since I found many different blog planners online (provided by other generous bloggers), yet I was not entirely satisfied with any of these different versions.

DIY Fairy Mobile

by

My latest addiction? Sculpting with fommy! In Italy it is also known as moosgummi, a thin layer of colored foam that gets very plastic when heated, allowing tridimensional creations!

To practice a bit with with this material I decided to go for a nursery mobile… isn’t this cute? The body of the fairy was made out by felt roses, to which I hanged romantic and scented bars of soap as well as small bells. Head and wings are made with Renkalik Fommy, and decorated with Sharpie and glitters!

I love it! And my toddler does, too!!

Snuggles for the eyes - vol1

 

I’ve always loved fashion. Yes, I’m Italian, I guess it is part of my DNA :)

And since I’ve become a mom… well, I totally lost my mind for BABY and KID FASHION! It must be for the cute  pastel colors, for the soft and tender textures, for the adorable prints… whatever the spell is, I simply can’t resist admiring the beautifully designed clothes for the kids, and wish that lovely dress is available for teenagers too, so I still have a chance to fit in it (even if I’m not a teenager anymore…) :)

OK, it’s true that kids grow … Read more...

lamp makeover cover

This is a super easy, yet very cute project that I did some time ago, while still planning and setting up Minnie’s nursery.

I had bought a cute and feminine bedside lamp at Zara Home, yet it seemed too anonymous to me… So with just a few touches I changed its appearance and made it look much more suitable for a cute nursery! First of all, I spray painted the wooden base of the lamp ’cause it was plain white, while I wanted it to match all the other furniture pieces in my daughter’s room, which are a pale … Read more...

Delightful Pastel Nurseries

by

When I got pregnant with my baby girl a whole new world opened up for me. Literally. And it was the greatest blessing of my life.

Before that, I used to be a neuroscientist wannabe, i.e. a post-doc research fellow who used to work interminable hours in a lab with the hope to really contribute and make the difference. Well, turned out I actually was VERY FAR from all of this, and motherhood opened up my eyes to the truth. Long story. Anyway, the last trimester of pregnancy also gave me an invaluable chance: get (finally!!!!) more time to catch … Read more...

Italian quote

I love this quote.

It’s taken from a Grey’s Anatomy episode (S05E23), and when I first heard it, I couldn’t stop thinking about how true these words are. There are times in life when you feel stressed out by zillions of duties you may have, and others when you are not sure you’re on the right track for something valuable. In any case, this quote is to remind you that you may always take a step back and see things from a distance, so you can enjoy the bigger picture and feel like all pieces fall in their right place.… Read more...
