I think I saw these great handmade notebooks on Sia's blog for the first time and I think they are gorgeous. The colors are so beautiful! Kaija from Finland sells these and some amazing handmade 'pebble' brooches in her shop called, Paperiaarre.
Kaija is a bookbinder, but she also makes jewelry/accessories out of paper and leather.She says she wishes to make books and jewelry that bring joy for a long time...and I think these pieces will! Click here for the Paperiaarre shop!
Hope you had a great weekend...we did! And I was visiting Elle Decoration South Africa's blog and found some images of a living room that I really liked...the colors, the lamp...and I love, love the 'concrete' shelf...more here...enjoy!

Today is Ana Ventura's Day...I'm showing her amazing art work on both my blogs...the art, prints and things she makes are suitable for all ages and fit in any room of your house...and I think I'm her biggest fan! I was just scrolling to her website to see if she had any new prints available and then I discovered her astonishing 'Cut and Paste' series...
What I totally appreciate about Ana's shop is that she is showing the procedure of how her artwork came together as well...it makes it so much livelier and interesting for me...and here you can find her inspiring blog.
