Small update: thanks everybody for your wonderful comments and emails, so nice to feel all your support, unfortunately we have to stay another night, but Lode definitely is feeling much better already ...
I received all your emails and attachments, but won't be able to respond until I'm back home, thanks for your patience!
Hi everybody ... sorry to let you know that I won't be back until Friday Monday with some new posts ... after a very rough night with my son not feeling well the doctor has decided that it's better for him to stay in the hospital for one night two nights so he can get better ... they call it an acute asthma attack ... very hard to see your little one struggling so hard to get some air ... but he is still all smiles and that makes me happy too.
Hope to see you back on Friday Monday and if you are interested in a Fantastic Giveaway please head over to B:Kids, you can win an $ 100 gift voucher!!!!!!

Daniel To and Emma Aiston recently presented their first collection together at the Tokyo design week ... and I LOVE it ... the collection is called 'Shapes'. They both studied industrial design at the University of South Australia.
This desk fan would be so nice and perfect for my desk here in warm Kuala Lumpur. Daniel and Emma's product design aim is 'just to be nice' and I think they are succeeding very well in achieving this! In the upper image you can find the wonderful dinnerset, shaped in a pentagon, triangle, square and circle! And listening to a radio with buttons like these will be more fun. Here you can find their website and please send them an email if you would like to require some more information.
Hello and welcome back ... I hope you had a nice weekend just like me. Last week when I was visiting Kiki&Polly's blog I discovered this great etsy shop, called FilzFelt and I saw Jan mentioning them too ... I totally understand why FilzFelt gets this attention, their thick layers of felt are simply gorgeous and usable in so many ways. I also have felt coasters at home and I never get bores when seeing them laying on the table.
