I would love to know what you think!!

Today I am going to show you guys a new pillow on my shop!

I used a wonderful vintage fabric from sosovintage, I love the soft texture of her fabrics and for the back and complements I used a burlap fabric to give it a little bit of contrast..the burlap fabric at the same time is a really soft one!

I would like a little bit of help about the name of the pillow!!...what style do you think the pillow is??...I am always more than happy to hear what do you guys think about it!!

Like every week today is the day that we can thank for what or who make us happy and this week is a very special one for me!!

This week I am grateful for maternity.

For the last couple of years my husband and I have been trying to have a baby.
Sometimes it was hard,month after month when that day of the month was arriving we had our fingers cross hoping that it was the rigth one.It took us time,but it finaly happened!!, and the funny part about it is that it happened when we least expected!!!

I am between six to seven weeks,I will have my first sonogram the first of the next month and I am very excited!!!!..I know it is still too early to tell everybody about it but I always have faith that everythinng is going to be ok!

Here is a treasury that one on my team mates form Etsy made in Spain made when I told them the news!! this week...what are you grateful for??

Walking around etsy

Today was a lovely day to visit etsy market like every week!!

I woke up early,the sun was out and it was the perfect day to take a walk to the market!
I decided to take the shorter way to the market but to do that I had to take a mountain path. I was half way there when I found a turtle family.
It looks like they were lost so I picked them up and put them back inside the forest...

I kept walking, I could heard the birds singing on the background and feel the sun warming up my face,I was so distracted by the beautiful things around me that I almost step on a little mouse that was stading on the size of the road..

Online mouse class from barby303

 It looks like she was having a friendly conversation with her owl friend and as soon as they saw me,the disappeared into the forest.
I started to think that maybe the coffee that I took before I left home was making me to have weird visions!

I was just shaking that thoughts out of my head when i saw something that made my blood freeze,between the bushes I saw a little dragon,I couldn't believe my eyes!!

That was my clue to take off running and go back home!!!
I was getting really scare when I finnaly got home,I opened the door and what was my surprise when I found three little monsters waiting for me!!

Every started to spin around me and then I woke up!!..I was dreaming the hole time!!...I looked at the clock and it was early in the morning,the sun was out and it was the prefect day to take a walk to the market....

I love Pounce!!

Today is tuesday and it is pounce day!!

Like every tuesday we try to find new shop around Etsy with the pounce button,this week I found one that facinated me,I always loved dolls,there is something misterious about them and they are so delicate.
When I found lesleyjanedoll I felt in love with her dolls!

I asked her to tell us a bit about her and her work!

 I live in a small town called Arbroath in the North East of Scotland and I started making dolls around about a year ago when I saw a book by the doll guru Patti Medaris-Culea. I had never imagined that dolls could look so intricate and beautiful, and I wanted to learn how to make them too. My first attempts were dreadful! However, I kept going and practiced a lot, and soon friends were buying them and ordering more...and so here I am today on Etsy (just starting out, but feeling hopeful!)

Being a bit of a clothes-addict myself seems to influence my dolls as I am always collecting pictures and photos of dresses and outfits that I like, and trying to think how I can turn them into a doll costume. If I see a picture of a beautiful face or some lovely jewellery, then I save it in my 'doll inspiration' folder so that I have ideas for my next creation. The dolls themselves take around 3 days each to make (if I am feeling energetic....if I am feeling lazy then they take a lot longer!) My favourite part to do is the hair, and my least favourite part is making the clay limbs because I always have sore hands after a clay-session!

 In my spare (non-doll-making) time I love walking my dog, shopping with my sister and learning Spanish - which I have been trying to do forever and I'm really awful at it! :D

Isn't she grate???..her and her shop are lovely and just looking at her dolls make me want to try to learn how to create them too!!
Please take a look to her shop and give her all of your hearts!!..and If I was you I would take one of her beautiful dolls home!!...I know I will soon or later!!;^P

Walking around Etsy

After a couple of weeks being stuck at home getting everything ready for our new beginning,I felt that I needed to go to Etsy market and pay a visit to some of my friends!

So that morning I woke up ,had some breakfast and walked out of the door ready to spend the day around my favorite people!
The first thing I did was stopping by my dear friend Delia,from Discola,we had a lot to talk about!:^P..she showed me one of her latest addition to her shop,I don't know what is going on with me and her rings but I just can't help myself, I would take them all home with me!

After spending some time with her I stopped by Sosorosey shop ,I needed to thank Jennie for the wonderful fabrics that I received on my mail last week from her shop sosovintage, and before I left I took a look around her shop and I found one of my favorites rugs!

Getting addictive to her fabrics and her creations is the right word to describe how I feel!;^P

Right by her shop there was TatterBeans shop,I walked inside and I saw Rachel with her camera ready to capture wonderful moments!

It was a pleasure talking to her for a while but it was getting late and I needed to go back home!
But before so I had to stop by Lalay shop ,Arcoiris and spend some time with her talking about my dear Spain!
She create wonderful baby cloths,head bands and brooches for our little ones!
I felt in love with this one so I had to take it home with me!

Now it was really late,I definitaly had to go back home,next week I will be back again!..will you walk with me?...If you want to share your walks around Etsy link your post!

Take care!!

Bling on Love

One of my favorites blog maxabella Love and her friend Gifts of Serendipity are doing a fun Valentine's day linky.

Maxabella loves...

During this week in the lead up to Valentine's Day, you can do a post talking about your favourite Bling Bling!. Your jewel might be an Engagement or Wedding ring, but it might also be a special little bauble that your man has lovingly bestowed during your love journey. If you like, you can share 'your story' in the post as well.

Write your post anytime before or on 14 February and on Valentine's Day link up you post to Maxabella blog hop!. Add their Blingy Button as well if you can.

I used to say that I didn't like diamonds too much,in Spain we really don't use them as our wedding ring,we just use a gold band,and we use it on our right hand!
But when I got my engagement rings I felt in love with the sparkly of it!!, my husband and I have been married for over three years now,we usually don't celebrate our anniversaries, most of the time we forget about it!
I know it sounds weird but it happens for a reason,we have two anniversary days!,when we first married on court back in Seattle and the second when we got married in Spain,so if it is hard for me personally to remember one date,two is just too much!:^(

So,This last Dicember (when our first anniversary day is) he decided to give me some for the last two years that forgot to celebrate it!,He gave me this wonderful Heart necklace!

I try to wear it everyday all day!...I just love it!
And you...What is your favorite bling bling that your beloved one gave you?

Take care everybody!

I love Pounce!

Today is Pounce day!

Like every Tuesday we try to find new shops around etsy using the pounce tool.

I always had a soft spot for things made out of wood, after I graduated from Art school I wanted to continue studying joinery but the money was tight and I had to start working, so today when I found Carlson Sculptural shop,something inside me woke up and made me think about going back to school and following my dream!

He sells beautiful  letter openers like this one made out of hardwood from countries in Central America. It has a reddish color with a lovely grain and smooth to the touch.

Born in Los Angeles and raised near the beach in Venice, Ralph was influenced by his parents’ artistic hobbies. His mother painted with oils and made jewelry, his father enjoyed both woodcarving and charcoal drawing.
As a child he liked drawing and putting plastic model cars together, adding details like black thread for spark plug wires and shock absorbers from ballpoint pen springs.He works with wood.metal,and fiberglass, and makes molds and castings on various mediums.
He LOVES making bowls which at first look like they are turned on a lathe, but are really cut in pieces like a pie - these are the kind of projects that produce the wood scraps that he uses for the letter openers. He hangs on to nice pieces of wood sometimes for years until the right project comes along.

He also has a web side called  at it and take a look of his magnificent creations like this three legged cabinet!

I personaly love this creamy yellow letter opener made from an exotic wood found in Brasil!

He just opened his shop a week ago and something on my heart tells me that it is going to be very successful!
Please take a look around his shop,you wont be disappointed!

This week I am grateful for..

Today is that day of the week when we can stop for a little and think about what make us happy and grateful for.
This week I am grateful for the moving company!!

I don't know if you guys noticed but the last couple of weeks I have been complaining about having to move to our new home. I had to do it myself, in a town that a barely knew and in the last minute!
We had 4 moves in the last three years and I am starting to hate it!

That is why this week I want to thank the moving companies, because without them i don't know what I would do!!..they took care of everything and did a grate job!

And I am grateful because my husband is finally back!!!...I am going to start thinking that he did it on purpose so he didn't has to deal with all the moving nightmare! ;^P

And you..what are you grateful for?

I love Pounce!

Today is pounce day!

Like every Tuesday I try to find new shops around with the Pounce button on Etsy!
This week I found Supercutetilly,a really cute one! I always had a soft spot for teddy bears and this one is full of it!

I asked her to tell me a little bit about her and her shop!

I have been working in the gift industry for the last ten or so years since I left University and I have decided that instead of going to the trade fairs looking at all the beautiful items I would like to be the one showing off the things she makes. The bears were something I made in my spare time, I never really intended to sell them but had so many lovely comments from people that I decided to give it a go. I love color so decided to make a few in different colors and fabrics but they take so long to make that they are on hold at the moment. My love for machine embroidery came when I was about 10, my mum and nan have always sewn and I watched them for years. Although they never freehand embroider they taught me the basics and I went from there.....I love my sewing machine and use it as a drawing medium. My inspiration usually comes from print although it could just be a song or it very comes off the back of something else I've's like a permanent ongoing process. My daughter also provides me with reasons to make clips and bobbles are always on her wish list. It has taken me a long time to realise what I want to do, I finally feel I'm in a good place :-)

Let me introduce you Disty, she is just too cute and it is one of my favorites!

She is around 40cm tall when she are standing and 28cm when sitting.she is made out of wool felt, cotton print fabric, cotton embroidery thread and poly filling. She have safety eyes and fabric covered buttons that joint her arms.

You can also find this Standing felt mushroom made out of wool felt and hand stitched using embroidery cotton. It also has a ribbon and twisted paper bow.

Do you need a journal??...she has very cute ones that you can remove and it is machine washable!!...just perfect!

Please take a look to her lovely store and give her your heart!
