july. part 1.

 my apologies for the lengthy absence.
july was packed to the brim
with preparations
for baby evelyn's arrival.
and with plenty of art making
and shipping.
i'll catch you up with two posts
on what i've been up to.
first, a walk through
evie's new digs.
turns out the nesting instinct
is no joke.

lamb pelt from tibet code on etsy & refinished vintage dresser

art i created inspired by some wonderful etsy artists

lovely doll hand made by my good friend ramona

babies love contrast!

"born free" - nightlight i made inspired by a gap onesie design

shel silverstein collection + the book that inspired the room's theme

little red mobile i blatantly copied from one found at acorn toy shop

all washed and ready to be taken on great adventures

stay tuned for an update
of what i've been up to
in the studio
in the next post.


  1. What a beautifully serene colour palette. The sweet touches of red are just perfect!
    Thanks for sharing. Xo

    Ciao Bella

    1. thank you, carmelina! i needed to add a little pop of color in there. :)
      i just finally got a moment to swing by your blog for the first time in a while. you've been up to all sorts of loveliness! great photos and some delicious looking baking!

  2. joyful and peaceful.loved your comment about nesting instinct :)

    1. thank you, dear! i'm quite grateful for it all. especially the miraculous burst of energy that enabled me to get the work done and enjoy the process.
      a lovely day to you!

  3. I have enjoyed watching your pins on pinterest. I can see how you carefully chose a theme, a color scheme, and loving prepared your nest for its little one. I am very excited for you and look forward to hearing about and seeing Evelyn. I love her name too.

    1. oh, pinterest! you might have also noticed that i can't help repinning everything you've pinned. oops!
      as for the room, it's amazing what a bit of obsessive compulsiveness in combination with crazy pregnancy hormones can accomplish. :)
      she'll be here in no time at all!

  4. Yes, the nesting instinct is in full bloom within you. How excited you must be getting. Your Evelyn's room is beautiful. One that will be filled soon with coos and smiles and moments of pure joy. Blessings to you, dear Anca.
