Time for a bit of colour and fun on the Kickcan & Conkers blog!
It's been a while since I came across an Eastern European shop as inspiring as Mamabu.
Offering a varied selection of kids' fashion, décor, books and toys, all made by upandcoming Polish brands, I'm pretty sure you'll find something new here. I love their wooden toys, soft toys and cardboard playkits in particular (so very K&C, don't you think?), all very reasonably priced.
The Mamabu site is in Polish but any online translation tool will do the trick. Send them an email if there's anything you fancy. The Mamabu team speak English and I'm sure they'd be happy to hear from international readers, customers or even potential buyers...
First of all, if you are following me on instagram or facebook, you'll know what a fabulous time we had on holiday in the Alps. We love going there each year and barring a couple of days the weather was glorious. Just perfect for swimming in turquoise lakes at the foot of the Mont Blanc!
My second piece of good news is about pinterest. I know a lot of you are already pinning with me but, one again, I'd like to say a huge thank you for your support! I have somehow managed to hit the 140,000 mark, and I am amazed at the sheer number of people who follow me there.
Two more days until we go on holiday and the skies are grey and cloudy here in the south of France. The weather forecast isn't looking very promising for next week in the Alps so I guess we'll be packing woolly jumpers, warm socks and the like (en juillet, vraiment ???).
Yes, I'm craving some sun today, dreaming of long walks on the beach and that beautiful glow of a late summer's evening.
A hueg thank you to these etsy sellers for the inspiration!
Kickcan and Conkers turned five last weekend, five wonderful years of blogging, sharing and hopefully inspiring.
I've been at home, trying to get a few big decorating jobs finished before friends arrive next week. I have worked hard on K + C over the past five years, and intend to continue to do so for another five at least. However, I also have a family and big house to renovate.
Sorry for the silence, I just needed to concentrate a little more on my real life. OK?
