Happy Friday + Plans For The Weekend!

I am so excited to be friday, my good friend from Montréal is visiting me for the weekend, I haven’t seen her for a year and half! And we both had babies since!

Our plans for the weekend include the Magic, Color, Flair exhibit at the Walt Disney Museum. Mary Blair’s work is so beautiful and magical!

I plan on showing her the best views of the city, from Twin Peaks, Corona Heights and Telegraph Hill by the Filbert Steps! Last time I climbed up those stairs I was pregnant. Climbing them and many others in the city became a little routine at the last month of my pregnancy to make Lula arrive fast or at least on time! It will be fun to go back with her.

More pool time in the backyard if the weather permits!

And a girl night, a mani-pedi, good restaurants, beach walk, picnic at the park…

Have a beautiful and fun weekend!

Happy 8 Months!

We are celebrating Lula’s 8 months in the pool. I got this baby pool on Amazon and it works perfectly in our backyard. Lula loves it and we have the perfect weather this week to enjoy it. The happiest 8 months of my life!

She is wearing a Little Hip Squeaks headband and a Gap swimsuit. She is playing with the Woodland Dolls.

Find the cat!

And The Winner Is…

…ARE Sarah Henderson, Amanda Craft and In Good Company for their beautiful space! Impossible to only choose one!

Thank you so much for all the participants on the bunny contest, I really enjoyed looking at all your photos! It was really hard to make a choice as you all did a really really great job at styling them.

I just adore the color palette of Sarah’s little girl room. It is so fresh and happy! The pompoms necklace looks so cute on the paper rabbit, and you know how much I love pompoms!

I couldn’t resist to Amanda’s baby sweet little face. Her nursery looks adorable. I know she has 3 rabbits already, but it will make a gift for a friend!

And I love In Good Company’s art wall! So cool! I recognize the illustration of one of my favorite artists: Fine Little Day’s yellow apple, Lula had the grey pear in her room (on her art wall that I will share next week).

For those who didn’t win this time but still want a little paper friend to add in your space I will send you via email a 20% off coupon to use on the new collection coming to the shop next week! I am so excited for the new colors I hope you are too!

Have a beautiful day!

Family Photos

My friend and super talented photographer Maria Del Rio (who shot me for Refinery 29 and 7×7) came over the past weekend to shoot us hanging out in our little backyard. I love those photos so much I can’t stop looking at them. Thank you so much Maria for capturing Lula’s almost 8 months! She’s been opening her arms when she sees us lately, this is the cutest thing ever.

Have a beautiful week!

PS: Lula’s room is featured today on Little Gatherer.

Indigo and Neons

Here is my second try at weaving. I’ll show you the first one that is hanging in Lula’s room next week. I went to Meghan Shimek workshop a couple weeks ago and enjoyed it so much. I love the endless possibilities weaving offers, from the colors, stitch, design…to the use. I love that you can insert little piece of wood, beads anything actually! It can just be tapestry wall hangings or bigger projects like a rug, poncho, blanket, belt, bracelet…so many things!

I just got Sheila Hicks book, her work is so inspiring.

What I’d really like to learn next is basket weaving, I am looking for a class in San Francisco.
