Inspiration: Strawberries

pic's from boxtedberries

On last holiday to my homeland (why oh why I only get inspired during holiday trips), we went to this nice small restaurant with a small strawberry field where we could handpick the fresh red fruits. Though I prefer the strawberries to be served with chocolate fondue or as milkshakes or garnished on a cheesecake, yet the fresh whole fruit is already tempting with its red delicious color. *hey wait a minute.. I'm not trying to write a culinary review here.. oh well*

Anyway, one of my twin boys LLove strawberries. Why? Simply because they're RED (guess what his favourite color is ;)).

Maybe I should say (write) that this 'Inspiration:' not only comes from strawberries, but also from children as well. At first I want it to be something that all children (girls and boys) can enjoy. But then my feminine side won ;) and here it goes, the Pink Strawberry series :)

The Pink Strawberry series comprise of pink colored cushion covers complete with a (yes, pink) table runner, all with pretty red strawberries on it. The design is sweet and fun enough for the small girls, yet simple and elegant enough for their mommies too :D

Your lil girls will love to have her tea party table dressed in this pretty runner. Yet, it can also serve as bed runner or wall display! The lovely tassels effortlessly enhance the fun in a girly manner.

And ofcourse don't forget about the versatile pillow/ cushion. As a floor cushion in the playroom, or a throw pillow on the couch in the nursery room, or a huggable accent pillow for the girls' bed, or in anyway you can think of (like on your terrace chair for that pink twist in the midst of your garden's greeneries).

So see you in Feathers For Nest for a strawberry themed tea party ;)

Oh and don't forget to check out our special offer for every purchase of inner cushion along with its cover!

Children's Bedroom Wall 'Art'

How I long for my children's bedroom would look like something in the IKEA catalogue.. yeah dream on.

Dunno where the kids get the idea, but few weeks ago the almost-5-years-old-twin-boys started to display their 'art' on their bedroom wall, and their 'collection' is still growing till now.

Well, of course I should be pleased with the idea of putting some graphics and colors on the boring plain wall. But you know how kids are, they just won't let you have all the fun.

For a start, they want to make their own art without any help for me. So off they go with crayons, pens, scissors and tapes. And each time I give suggestions like "Why don't you color it first before you put it on the wall" or "Don't you think the color's too pale?" they just keep going with their work like I'm not even there..

And by the time they put their work up the wall, I must say I'm very proud of their original work of 'art'. Yet I still wish I could do something about it like frame the artwork and put it in some nice grid pattern.. or first make a theme for the bedroom so the kids can make artworks about it only, giving a nicer coordinated look. Hmmm but that means it won't be their original work again, right? ;)

Oh well, these will do for a start :)
