♥ Top 10 acquisti fatti per i miei bebè


1)      Tatamia Pegperego: sdraietta, dondolo/altalena e seggiolone. Fantastico, tre in uno! Design compatto e ultra comodo con ruote te lo porti dove vuoi. si può posizionare a diverse altezze quindi il bimbo è sempre alla tua altezza quando è in posizione di straietta; si addatta anche a tutti i tipi di tavolo. SPESA OTTIMA

2)      Specchio auto x ovetto, non potendo mettere l'ovetto sul sedile anteriore avevo la difficoltà di vedere la faccia del mio piccolo essendo l'ovetto rivolto indietro, con questo specchio ho risolto il problema, lo si riesce a controllare comodamente.

3)      Fasciatoio posizionato in bagno sopra lavatrice, veramente comodissimo, io ce l'ho opposto al lavandino quindi faccio tutto in pochi minuti senza sgocciolare o viaggiare con sederini sposrchi per mezza casa. 

4)      Porta ciuccio breviheimess con strong clip, diciamo la verità, se si staccano troppo facilemnte è una vera rottura, specialmente se i bambini lo lanciano. Fortunatamente i miei sono stati bravi ma questi della Brevi li ho trovati ottimi.

5)      Kit 4 biberon avent, preso su amazon.co.uk, kit completo di 4 biberon, 2 ciucci e una spazzolina per pulirli, prezzo 12 €

6)      Telo impermeabile x culla/lettino, così il materassino rimane asciutto in caso di fuoriuscite.
7)      Angelcare mangiapannolini, ricariche su amazon.co.uk, molto più economiche che in Italia, spedizione gratuita.

8)      Tappeto rosso gommapiuma, dove i bimbi possono rotolardi, iniziare a gattonare, diciamo una palestrina in grande! Si pulisce benissimo con una spugnetta.

9)      Passeggino doppio phil&teds, agile per andare ovunque. Si trasforma in pochi secondi, si hanno i bimbi sottocchio. Culla + seduta o 2 sedute. NON OTTIMO, DI PIU'! Loro lo adorano.

10)   Più ciucci x la culla/lettino (avent fluorescenti): essenziale, se di notte non si trova il ciuccio è un caos! detto fatto, mettetene vari sparsi per il letto e loro li troveranno facilmente. Io ho trovato comodissimi quellie fluorescenti dfella avent, bisogna caricarli vicino ad una lampadina e per 4-5 orette si vedono.

♥ Biscotti da decorare - italiano

Quest anno ho deciso di fare l'albero di Natale in anticipo ed eccolo qui, già bello piazzato in salotto di casa nostra. Come mi piace il periodo natalizio!!
Ho deciso di non usare decorazioni rosse ma solo questo pallete di colori: bianco, verde e marrone e quindi lana e legno sono perfette.

Le decorazioni le ho comprate o fatte a mano nei mesi scorsi:

- Balls from Riccicasa
- Handmade Wool Balls
- Wooden Pins
- Crochet Stars by Jelly Wares
- White Candels
- Birdhouses from John Lewis, essendo la mia ultima mania, non potevano mancare!
- Cookies, recipe by Bakeat350, sotto vi ho tradotto la ricetta.
- my Olivia's Boots
- loads of Pinecones raccolte quest'estate al mare.








[Ho pure deciso di scrivere di più in italiano che in inglese. Farò un piccolo sunto del post in lingua ala fine.]
 
Nell'impasto dei biscotti ho aggiunto un pò di cannella perchè volevo che si sentisse l'aroma e devo dir la verità... si sente un sacco!! C'è GIA' una bellissima atmostera natalizia in casa nostra.















Qui la ricetta originale  in inglese dei cookies.
E' di Bridget, Bake at 350, il mio guro in tema cookies. Ecco i link qui sotto:
Se invece non siete ferrate in inglese e volete le traduzioni cliccate qui:
Biscotti da Decorare - ITALIANO
 


This years our xmas tree is already up in our living room, brighting and smelling! Loads of new decorations are on and NO RED at all.
Here expecially you can find the recipe for cookies for decoration I used, it's by bake at 350 , my mentor!!!

Do you like my Xmas tree?

♥ First birthday party



Pin It



And eventually I managed to put together some pics of Giulio's first birthday party. The theme is elefant with red ballon, totally inspired by Dulce Sobremesa.I made wall decorations, table decorations and the cake and decorated biscuits! Yes I DID MAKE the sugar cake and biscuits, honestly I thought it was ore difficult but it wasn't, probably also because the decorations werent' very hard to make.

I just baked a Madeira cake (Francesca Sugar Art Recipe) and covered it with white sugar paste ( I watched some Francesca's video about how to cover a cake on her channel on Youtube). After that I just placed some blu elephants and red ballons on the top of it. I just had colored some sugar paste with my gel red and blue colors, flatted it with a pinroll, cut the shapes and pasted them on the cake.



And here some pics of the table:



I do love to organize this little party!!

♥ Xmas sweet xmas

This is our first Xmas at home with my little one. Last year we were at the hospital as he was born right during xmas's eve night!

I decided to decorated our home with traditional xmas colour: white, red and green so Giulio can surely get the real touch of Christmas. He loves to play with my tree!!!!

So I sewed some red hearts, crocheted some white stars (click for getting the pattern) and bought other decoration such as wooden and fabric ornaments. My mum gave me also some white candels to hang on the tree, they look very nice there, very good idea mum!





and also I bought the Santa clothes for Giulio, he looks so sweet in those, doesn't he?!!

♥ advent calendar

Hey all, today I'd like to show the advent calendar I made for my husband. It was very easy to make and it was quite funny as well, what do you need? Few things.
  • white paper sheets
  • paper tape
  • few metres of strip
  • scissors
  • loads of fantasy, inspiration and creativity!
  • some scrapbooking ideas
  • 24 number

I made 24 little envelopes using normal white papers just cutting in 3 strips an A4 paper. I folded up every strip in two and I fixed both sides with paper tape leaving opened the top.

I pasted on each bag one number and then ... I used my creativity! Each front of those bags are different, I added hearts, bunting, just paper tape, some cute designs, more.

When I got all my bag totally dressed up t I hanged them to a string and, here we go, I pinned them up the wall. What is there inside these bags? I wrote short letters or just some quotes I love and I also added candies.

Doesn't it sound very easy and cheap? Have a look at the photos above.

♥ jolie petite chose



I just bumped into this gorgeous website: JOLIE PETITE CHOSE. They sell a little pieces and mobiles that add for sure a cute and cozy touch at your baby nursery.
This lovingly hand crafted nursery mobile features 5 distinctive elephants with each in its own individual colour and pattern.
This mobile is designed with the elephant trunks pointing up to bring good luck!

All of them are handmade in Jodie’s Melbourne studio and every use fabbric is soft and unique and all patterns are so sweet. You can choose among elephants, owls, tree, birds and more.

When someone asked about the inspiration behind her collection Jodie replied… “My inspiration was to give my lovely little daughter something special made by me to cherish and remember as a part of her life as a baby/infant. Hopefully she will pass the things I make for her on to her own little one someday”…. A lovely reflection that truly sums up the essence of the handmade children’s industry.

They would make the perfect gift for any new arrival.

♥ how to make: halloween's pumpkins


Five days to go to Halloween and here you can find the last minutes tutorial to make your scary pumpkin lantern. I made one with a friend of mine Cla, she is so good at hand making these kind of things.
Here you can download the template, shape or designs to use for cutting your scary punpkin. And here you can see more pumpkins made by my lovely friend Cla


Isn't it so perfect!? anyway lets go haed and let me give you some tips to get it very easily.

Step by step:

1) First able the crucial point is to find the right pumpkin to cut: it could be soft and the size should be suitable for the template you chose. Of course you can also re-size the template adapting it to your pumpkin.
2) Cope the top where the stalk is (cut at 4/5 cm from it or less, it’s depends of the size of your pumpkin), the copped part should look such as a lid. Keep the lid!
3) Empty properly our pumpkin from seeds and stuff.
4) Put the paper of our template on the side you like, hang and fix it on the pumpkin with the help of some needles. Watch out! Make sure you put the needles in the part of the pumpkin you are going to remove so at the end you won’t find any little marks.
5) With a sharp and small cutter/knif notch and make a lot of little cuts on the pumpkin following right the shape of the design. Now you should see the design impress on your pumpkin in broad terms.
6) Start removing the biggest parts (without pay attention at the little details) then you can starting to refine and give a shape cutting precisely and minutely all borders. If you are in trouble, to get the best design out and to make the work easier for you, you can also reduce the thickness near the edges but don’t go too far! And if that is not necessary please avoid it. Don’t reduce to much the thickness otherwise the pumpkin becomes soft and it can wrinkle.
7) Here you go with the magic secret!! Put on all borders a bit of Vaseline so the edges won’t become black because of the air and also this avoids our pumpkin to dry too much.
8) Now put inside a candle and cover with the copped top. It's done!

Light it up and it’s Halloween’s night!! You’ll find something to suit your skill level!
