blueboard paint! March 14, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — maitas @ 8:37 pm

I’ve just finished painting the long awaited other side of my daughter’s bedroom, poor thing. I decided to use coloured blackboard paint for half of it and just plain white above. It needs another coat(gotta buy some more) but it’s nice and bright. I think I’ll add some coordinating circles to make with the other side too. I thought this image looked rather pleasing..well to my eye at least! I love the new print I got the other day from Keboniko by Cosas Minimas.

Matching Brooches March 13, 2010

Filed under: accessories — maitas @ 4:53 pm

Am thinking of doing some matching brooches for my clips…even I would wear them I think, they are so pretty and summery. I bought about a million meters of gingham ribbon so I have to do something with it!!!

Estoy pensando hacer unos broches a juego con mis clips…yo los llevaria tambien, son tan bonitos y veraniego. He comprado millones de metros de cinta vichy y tengo que hacer algo con ello!!!

Rainbow clips March 11, 2010

Filed under: accessories — maitas @ 3:02 pm

After that rash of cold weather I thought these clips I’ve been making might brighten things up…I am so pleased and excited with how they have turned out and a big thanks to my mother in law for doing all the crocheted flowers for me! The clip inside the little “sleeping bag” of gingham ribbon is a normal click open and close type which stays put in little people hair!

I would take a picture of them in situ as they really do look adorable actually in hair but of course my daughter as usual isn’t playing ball!

If you would like to make an order please contact me at maitasshoes@gmail.com. They are 4 euros or 3.50GB pounds(sorry, don’t have a pound sign on my Spanish computer!)

Despues de la nieve pensaba que estas clips traen un poco de alegria  al dia! A mi me encanta muchisimo y estoy tan feliz con el resultado. Estan hechos ,a mano con cinta vichy de varios colores, y un abrazo muy grande para mi suegra quien hizo los flores de ganchillo! El clip utilizado dentro del forro es uno normal que queda fijado bien el el pelo de pequeña princesas. Me gustaria mostrar una foto con ellos en situ pero mi hija no me deja o sea que teneis que conformar con ese…

Si quieres hacer un pedido manda un mensaje a maitasshoes@gmail.com valen 4 euros cada uno

Well, this is Barcelona in March if you can believe it, because we couldn’t! Especially as we had had temperatures of 18 degrees c  here last week!
