Tiny Prints


Can I share some cards with you today that are for sale at one of Bloesem's sponsors...Tiny Prints It's often hard to make a choice out of so many invitations, cards that are available, but TinyPrints I believe makes searching very easy for you and they have a huge collection of customized cards were you can add your family images, choose your colors and fonts. Really easy.

One&TheSame Tote Bags


Just when I decided to use my camera much more this super nice cotton canvas tote bag from Alessandra Olanow arrived in my mailbox....very nice encouragement indeed.... Alessandra was born in Montreal, but after moving around a lot she settled down in Brooklyn. She is a great drawing talent in my opinion and the simple but deliberate lines from her illustrations really appeal to me.You can find her custom work here on her website, if you wish to buy some of her witty greeting cards or the same canvas tote bag as I have then click here... One & The Same!

Let's Get Personal in Helsinki with Kauniste


DesignHome Kauniste unRaveled :: answers by Milla



F:: Finnish is...lakes, forests, bright summers, dark winters, weekdays in the city and weekends in the countryside.

I:: interior design to me is...a nomadic collection of items bought on trips, furniture from grandparents, bric-a- brac with sentimental value.

N:: new in my home is...hardly anything; practically all the things are second-hand, recycled, vintage. My latest find is old Kelim carpet for the hall way.


N:: next on my to-do list is...putting up some shelves in the bathroom. We had our bathroom done about a year ago, but there is still no shelving, only a few hooks on the wall. I like the bare, minimalistic look, but it's not very practical.



I:: indulgence, my secret indulgence is...buying vintage ceramics. The piles of bowls keep building up and somehow there's always an excuse to buy more.



S:: style means...not just appearance but also character.

H:: home is...truly where your heart is.


H:: hobby, I always make time for...going for a run with Chewbacca, our dog.

O:: outfit, my favorite thing to wear is...a big woolen scarf for the winter!

M:: magazines I love to read are... Swedish Elle Interior, Finnish Deko, Japanese Come Home

E:: enjoy, I can't live without...sharing good food with good friends!



...........................Thank You Milla...........................

You probably have seen the beautiful Kauniste kitchen linens around on the internet or you are perhaps a lucky owner of these gorgeous illustrated towels. Kauniste was founded in 2008 and is based in Helsinki. Milla is one of the founders and she told me how Kauniste recently teamed up with the Norwegian illustrator Bjorn Rune Lie for their new range. The new pattern is called Laululinnut, which means Songbirds. The different birds with their little hats and shoes on simply make you smile...Love, love love them! And of course the beautiful images above from Milla her home.
