Our little baker

We have a baker in the house!!!
My thirteen year old son has developed an interest in baking. From bread to the most difficult desserts, he enjoys the process of the baking arts so much.
I can only take credit for the photos :-)

Yesterday he made these lemon curd mini tarts.
A wafer thin crust with tart lemon curd filling, topped with Swiss meringue. Just delicious!

fournier sequined pillows

Sparkly, pretty and in shapes we all love!
My sequined pillows have been a real success this holiday season. Stars, moons and hearts in silver, rose gold and pink sequins.
I will add more shapes and colors to this range soon.

morning coffee ritual

I wish every morning was like this, no rush to answer emails or get to work immediately, but that only happens around Christmas time when we have shipped all Fournier orders and our manufacturing partner in Bolivia closes for a two week holiday. Only then I can start my day with a cafe latte and a good book.

The last batch of Christmas cookies

 For this last batch of cookies I used only white royal icing with some white and pink tiny pearls.

 Iced cookies and one of Fournier's bird tree ornaments.

 For the glass jars I painted the lids with snowmen.

 Sugar cookies and Fournier's snowmen tree ornaments.

A simple organic cotton bow and one of the Christmas gift tags I painted to finish the glass jar.

The Christmas table

With the big day only a matter of days away, it is probably about time to start thinking about the Christmas table.
This time I styled two tables using my golden snowflakes soft pots and soft ornaments.

pom-pom Christmas ornaments

For the love of pom-poms I made some elves with baby alpaca and felt hats.
They look so cute on the Christmas tree and they don't break if they fall.

Sugar cookies for gift giving

There is nothing I look forward to more during the holidays than baking cookies for friends and family. My favorite are these buttery sugar cookies.

Packed in glass jars, finished with a burlap top, a watercolor gift tag,  and a snowman ornament.

Wrapping presents

People who love gifts, also love to wrap them!
I believe that the wrapping is as important as the gift.

For this holiday season I painted some watercolor gift tags to give to my customers at the Fournier showroom in Kampala. 

Each bag adorned with a special tag and washi tape or a tiny clothespin.

Shinning bright

One of my most popular Christmas tree ornaments this season have been the sequined stars and birds in rose gold and silver.
They shine bright with the tree lights and are soft and cuddly.
Handmade to keep for many years!
