this year we took a summer holiday to the southern danish island of ærø and it was lovely!

the houses were colorful and cozy, lining cobblestone roads. the countryside and coastlines were beautiful and we saw farms and loppedmarkets (flea markets) selling antiques and fresh produce--often with honor system pricing! (everyone is very trusting)

we only went to the beach once and it was sooo windy and cold...but oliver is so acclimated to danish climate and loved going in the water, teeth chattering away. we ate amazing sea food (smoked oysters NOT from a can) and fresh baked goods, took bike rides and long walks, cooked food and baked cookies in the most charming tiny house, knit while watching movies, played board games while it might not have been the tropical island holiday i imagined it would be (no, i don't know why i thought an island in denmark would be tropical) but it was a REALLY nice holiday and i can't wait to go back someday!

mini rodini quilt

of course this sold out in mere minutes! mini rodini recently had a limited edition run of baby blankets upcycled from scrap fabric of their popular prints. i love that bunny print and have yet to find it in a second hand store here (though the search is part of the fun anyway :) this is such a great way to own their prints without having to hold onto old baby clothes. genius.

big eyed baby

we are sooo lucky to have friends who spoil our little baby bebo even from afar. my bestie melissa (who keep in mind, JUST had her own little nugget a month ago) knit oliver the sweetest teddy bear (with monogrammed sweater!) and hedgehog and he immediately hugged them both, CUTE!!! he has been attached to that bear and toting it around everywhere, i might have to commission her for a back-up one soon! *wink* thanks for such sweet gifts, friend!
