Let’s celebrate!


Hot air balloon for a baby boy!


Childhood friendships are friendships that last a lifetime. We keep memories and feelings in a time capsule and everytime we meet we open it. And it's like we never missed a day away even if we have along time to see each other. This is the case of my dear friend Depi. Her baby boy was baptised and it was a first class opportunity for me, Depi and Angelica to meet, plan and make this special event another memory for our time capsule. .


Happy birthday!

One sunny day 3 years ago, I was walking in my neighborhood and suddenly I saw a place that attracted my interest right away. It wasn’t a shop, it wasn’t a gallery either. But it looked like one. I wasn’t sure what kind of a place that was but I really loved it. Some furniture from the past, some handmade kids clothes that seemed like they were from another time and place, some handmade dolls, a desk and lots, lots of boxes! For a long time every time I was passing that place, it was closed, only a piece of paper in the door with a telephone number written on it, was a sign that someone was working there!!
A couple of months later, an afternoon near Christmas I saw the door opened so I walked in and met Christina, the owner of this place. Christina makes clothes for kids and women in a way that no one makes them nowadays. Her designs could be from an illustrated children's book from the 50s or the 60s, the fabrics she picks for each of the designs are like they were made for this particular clothe. And the most important is that you’ll never find a shirt, a skirt or a dress twice, not even in a different size. Every item is unique. And if you want something that isn’t in the size you want it, Christina will make it for you. Maybe with a small different detail from the one you saw, because everything must be unique!


The Fairy tale


Η ιδέα για τη βάφτιση ήταν να κάνουμε ένα κλασικό παιδικό παραμύθι, και το πρώτο που μου ήρθε στο μυαλό ήταν η Χιονάτη. Ίσως για το χρωματιστό της φόρεμα, ίσως για τη χαριτωμένη  παρέα της με τα μυτερά χρωματιστά καπελάκια… ίσως επειδή τα μήλα αυτή την εποχή είναι τόσο ζουμερά και κόκκινα σαν αυτό που κράταγε η Χιονάτη.

Το προσκλητήριο ήθελα να θυμίζει μια vintage εικογράφηση της Χιοντάτης που βλέποντάς το να νομίζεις όι είναι μια κάρτα παρά ένα προσκλητήριο. Η ζωγραφιά που έκανε ο Κώστας, ήταν ακόμα πιο όμορφη απ’οτι είχα φανταστεί!


Happy together!


And they lived happily ever after...


Planes,flags and buttons...


Μ’ αρέσουν πολύ τα βαφτίσια… είναι ανάλαφρα και χαρούμενα, πάντα “φωτεινά”  λόγω της ώρας που γίνονται και φυσικά είναι μια πολύ καλή ευκαιρία να δημιουργήσουμε όμορφες αναμνήσεις για την πρώτη γιορτή ενός παιδιού!

Λίγες μέρες πριν  είχα τη χαρά να οργανώσω τη μικρή γιορτή ενός μικρού αγοριού, στο προαύλιο της εκκλησίας μετά τη βάπτισή του.
