Beautiful Etsy find


White Bird, duck or maybe a penguin... in White & red dotted hat and  Deep olive green corduroy -handmade fabric doll
bird, duck or penguin

I love the creations of Timo Handmade. Timo creates amazing dolls, animals and objects. TIMO, based in Israel, is a small design line, all handmade. Sewn with an eye for detail and a touch for fabric. Being hand-made, each and every item is one of a kind.

TIMO is part of the EcoDesign trend, standing up for the right consumption and the right manufacturing, alongside
recycling, minimization of manufacturing waste and simplification of processes. The objects' design is current and classic, but the methods of manufacture are traditional.

The materials are mostly recycled, or scraps of designers' fabrics.Scraps of fabric piled up in the studio are used later either as stuffing or as material for other products.

Ocean cuties

Yesterday evening I found some images of The Octonauts. I have never seen them before. The Octonauts are a crew of adorable animals who roam the ocean in search of adventure and fun.




The Octonauts is a tv serie (not on Dutch television) based on the children's books written by Vicki Wong and Michael Murphy of Meomi Design Inc.

They are so cute and I'm sure my sons will love watching them.
