I’ve discovered a new hobby! Writing names with fabric rags is so much fun! Now I just need to practice my photographer skills… I bought an IKEA frame and some washi tape to decorate it and voilà ! A new picture to hang on my baby’s bedroom ♥ ♥ ♥

Olivia is very responsive to sounds, so I made these maracas to play with her. I filled some Orangina‘s bottles with rice, salt, water and Japanese Mugi-Cha beans to make different sounds. First I washed the bottles and submerged them in hot water so the label could come of. Then I filled them and protected the cap with some tape. You can watch the video and listen the sound of each bottle.

Animals’ Canvases for Olivia’s bedroom

(Podem ler este artigo em Português aqui. Podéis leer este artículo en Español aquí.)

In a month I’ll be giving birth and we still don’t have Olivia’s bedroom prepared… We’ve not even assembled the crib! From the very beginning I knew how I wanted to decorate her room, but since we live in a rented apartment we find it hard to spend time and money in a place that is not ours and which we sooner or later might leave.  But I’ve decided that I’ll hang at least some canvases! I wanted them to be very simple and clean, so I used only two colors (grey in two tones) and a theme that never fails, animals! I chose these four because they are our (mine and Joaquim‘s) favorites.

What do you think? Do you like it? I love it and I am super proud!
