Happy Birthday Mila!

Mila is celebrating her very first birthday this week.
I took the "official" 1 year old picture of her in a same dress I was wearing in my picture in 1979.
Past is reaching to future.

Cardigan dress with a button embroidery

             My mom just crochet this little cardigan dress for Mila, and I thought it needed something extra...

Since I've been buying stuff for nursery decorations,
 I've found also other cute things,
 like rosy pink, lila and greenish brown buttons.

Hum... I see an owl! 

Here it is!

This amazing transformer owl was my "model".

Happy happy, joy joy!

PS  In case you haven't seen this hilarious Transformer Owl video before, see it! I can't stop laughing at the owls "evil face". It's just so...cute. And these "Hungover Owls" -pictures are so funny too.

Back in FINLAND!

Hello my dear friends,

Her Pinkiness at the Rodeo Drive
First of all, I'm sorry I haven't been blogging lately. Our vacation in States was truly a vacation. Few months in California and one week in New York was an amazing journey. I got new friends, had a great time with my family and enjoyed the sun. Mila got 8 teeths, ate her first handful of Venice Beach sand and learned to stand and crawl so quick, that she's almost impossible to manage. Time goes so fast, she's not a little baby anymore, she's more like a toddler with a strong personality. I can hardly wait that she's going to start to talk. Maybe then she can tell me what she dreams about.

The Project Nursery

Since I know it's a kind of a bummer that I don't post those daydream photos anymore, but I decided to start another, creative project here in this blog and in our little home. I hope you like it! We just started to make a renovation in my hubby's old studio, it's going to be Mila's new nursery!

There's a lot of things to do, and I want to make personal decorations.  Paint furnitures, sew pillows, curtains and maybe some soft toys. My hubby is going to do some improvements to the old plank floor with his best friend and Mila's godfather Miika.

"Mommy, is this my new room?"
I like all arts and crafts, and children room is perfect place for my creative outbursts. I hope Mila will love her room, too bad she's still too tiny to tell me what she wants, but I know a few things she will defintely love. In that picture on left you can see that round pillow, she loves to hug that pillow or lay on top of that like she's planking. (you've heard about that silly internet craze?  So yes, she will have that pillow in her own room. This pillow was also in my first daydream -picture, so it has some sentimental value too.

Now I have to go and take those first "Before" photos from that room. I have to confess that I find that room quite ugly as it is right now. It's practical as a walk-in-closet or studio, but as a nursery it's almost dangerous. Well, we are working on it. More soon!
