ecological living – style without compromise

Spoonflower / Pattern

Loving Holly Zollinger and her prints! So delicate, playfull and what use of colors! I wish I could dress my whole house in these splendid patterns! Holly Zollinger is a self taught artist ( yes we can!!! ) and mother. You go girl!

You can also find her shop over at Spoonflower!



My husband just sent me a link to this brilliant pattern artist named Judit Canela. One of my favorites below: Summer ir here!

You can find patterns anywhere you look. We are surounded by them. From the most obvious one to the more hidden. My almost 5 month old baby and I lately lay down on the grass in the park where we live and we just stay there on our backs looking up on the tree above us moving in the wind. Sometimes an our sometimes more. And he just talks and talks to the moving tree. With kids I know appreciate the smaller everyday things in life. Those are what makes life in the end isn’t it?


Summer sneakers!

Yes I am looking for a new pair of summer sneakers to change with my constant classic: the flipflops which I love and could not live without in this hot and humid climate that we have here in Barcelona during the summer. So I wound a new online stop called TITOLO that apparently also is a ‘real’ shop in Switzerland. They have a stunning selection of great brands and and ONITSUKA TIGER and below is my withlist with VANS and ONITSUKA TIGER !


Food from Italy: “melanzane alla parmeggiana”

As I used to live in Firenze and my husband is from the south of Italy I have a constant reminder of the sublime food that comes out of the Italian soil. There is no kitchen I like better then this sundrenched land. Melanzane alla parmeggiana, pasta con rape, penne alla arrabiata, insalata di burrata, la pizza con radicchio o quella con patate….I could go on and on.

My husband does a yummi melanzana alla parmeggiana that is now my fathers specialty up north.Have you ever had it?

Anyhow after a morning walk with my babyboy ( he is now asleep ) I will now go of to the studio and print some organic baby blankets.Soon they will be up in the store so be sure to stop by!

Photos from the lovely bread and breakfast in Puglia: Masseria Potenti


Somewhere in Puglia

I am sitting in front of the computer with my baby boy sleeping in my arms. It brings peace to my heart looking at him. What a little miracle he is.

This summer we will go 2 weeks to Sweden to visit family and then 2 weeks to Italy to do the same. But we are also looking for some gettaway for the four of us during 4-5 days in Puglia. I found this heavenly Masseria and I so want to go!!! My whole body aches for that swimming pool and my stomach for the food they serve. Please please please make it happen!


For father’s day!

As I allways allways run late with gifts this time I thought of being smart. So I went over to my trusted Etsy and created a treasury with gifts for the dad’s in my life: my dad and my sons dad. Maybe I will make it in time this father day!

We are real gratefull for all friends who came to see us and also really happy that the Etsy man visiting the market from London actually bought one of our baby one piece! Also we got some new contacts and more over a lot of praise for what we do, so that gives us lots of enthusiasm and hope that we are doing the right thing. Thank you!
