Spring Shopping!

Just a few more days until our baby arrives and the shop has never been busier! Sales, custom orders, wholesale inquiries. And we still have 2 more days left on Euro Week!

Between orders and redecorating our bedroom - new bedspread and linnen arrived yesterday, yay! - I finished a new bag yesterday:

I love the bold print in classic black and white combo! You can find it here. And don't forget that you can still use the coupon EUROWEEK10OFF and get your 10% discount until tomorrow evening!

More Saturday shopping? Check out Sandra's lovely blog here.

From March 21 through March 27, 2011, Etsy is going to be celebrating the European art and artists with special home pages full of products from throughout Europe.

To mark the occasion, many shops including b*lota, will be running a week-long discount so be sure to check it out!

We are also donating items to the European Street Team's charity shop Europe for Charity which is currently benefiting Japan via Architecture for Humanity.

A Little Saturday iCandy... Bedrooms

In the last couple of months, as the nesting drive took over, I have been remodeling and re-organizing  our house. After buying new bookcases for the living room and ordering new chairs for the dining area, I turned my attention to the bedroom - a problem area since pretty much ever. 
Unfortunately, our budget (and hubby) doesn't allow me to take rip everything out and start fresh so I will have to work with the current Ikea furniture and focus on the soft furnishings: curtains, bedding, light fixtures. Plus, we are going to share the room with our new baby in the next few months!
Mmmmm, what to do, where to start... Naturally, I turned to the internet for ideas, advice and eye candy! 

Luckily in the last couple of weeks, some of my favorite design blogs have had features on bedrooms, giving me tons of ideas:

On Design*Sponge

On Decor8

Now the challenge is to get it done before the baby comes! Oh, I better get started!!
