MARIMEKKO

Last Saturday while sitting at Sylvia's

in a Magazine I read an article
on Marimekko.

I use to sell Marimekko sheets over 20 years
ago at my first job with Pacific Linen.


I loved them then and I still love there bold prints today!




Bright and cheery prints




With a whole lot of funk!




So Cute....







This dress is so sweet.





I love this for Mimi.
Check out their amazing webite
for more fun items.








Saturday night was Amanda's annual swap party.
this was my treasure that I brought home.
I came down with my once a year terrible flu
so I really didn't get to take a look at it till yesterday
and found out it was a child's caplet!
No wonder it was a little snug...
Mimi loves it!!!

    Capelet is lovely and a great score for Mimi.

    I could go Marimekko crazy ... all over the house ... it's one area where overkill is not enough!

  10. Sorry to hear about the frozen blouse, I can't imagine that as it is so hot & humid here.
    Glad you remembered your Dad's birthday.
    Marimekko is a favourite of mine, such simple shapes & gorgeous bold design.I'm in love with their current crockery.
    Hope all's well up North.
