Barcelona, Spain

Misako Mimoko creates little stuffies – dolls, brooches, and necklaces – with lots of personality and a nod to the past. I followed a link in her shop announcement to find this little embroidery pattern, inspired by one of her dolls, that you can download and use to embellish a tea towel or pillow.

Imaginario de Neruuu is full of fabulous brightly colored prints but what really caught my eye was this black & white mobile. My poor daughter was a deprived of a mobile because I could not find anything that fit the aesthetic I wanted to raise her in (ooh..that sounds snobby!). This, however, would have been perfect. And then I could have just decorated the walls of the nursery with her prints!
