Daily Inspiration: Crib Mobiles for the Nursery

by


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!!!

These first ones are … Read more...

Take spring inside your house: DIY indoor flower box!

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...

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 . . . Vol.1

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...

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...

Inspire your week-end . . . Beautiful Italian quote free printable!

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...

Last minute Easter Gift Box!

by

bunnyWW

This year I got a little late with all Easter preparations, and I found myself in the urge of coming up with something cute yet simple for two special moms I’ve recently had the blessing to become close to. No time for making my own printables, no time for setting up a DIY gift box… so what could I do? Recycle boxes from my wedding and borrow a printable from another blogger!!

So, first of all I used a very cute Bunny layout from a free printable generously shared by Erin from Strawberry Mommycakes via http://www.Iheartnaptime.net (be sure you get … Read more...

Keep track of yearly world events in a… fashionable way!

elle mag

 

I have a very clear memory of something that happened last year, at the beginning of March.

It was a bright and sunny day, and I was lying in a hospital bed and reading my favourite fashion magazine, Elle.

Yes, I had just delivered my baby, and she was peacefully sleeping in a tiny crib next to me. As I was flipping through the shiny pages a sudden thought occurred to me: what will it be like, our world, in 20, or 30, or 40 years?

Will the pollution be decreased? Will poverty throughout the world be defeated? Will … Read more...

Today, in Italy we celebrate Father’s Day. I know it’s a different date from American celebrations, and that was the coolest part when I lived in US: I could celebrate it twice!! (even if I could hug my daddy from Italy just through Skype…).

Anyway, according to the calendar today is St. Joseph, Jesus’ father, and any dad deserves special greetings!!!

I dedicate this to my adorable DAD, nobody like him can make me feel loved and esteemed. But I also dedicate this post to A., the best husband ever, who proved to be not only a gorgeous friend, … Read more...
