potato printing









Every day the the trees come more and more out. It's so good to be outside again.

Frida Viola and I made the invitations for her birthday party this weekend with potato printed bowties and little cats. We must do more potato prints soon - Frida Viola loved the stamping part, and it is a really easy way to decorate something (and fun to recall my own childhood's creative projects!)

We made these very good muffins this weekend, with cardamom, marzipan and pears. And Frida Viola made the hama heart for Molly. A says everything is getting more and more girlish around here. I guess he's right. When Frida Viola was born I was very careful with her clothes and toys, not wanting everything to be pink. I try to do the same with Molly - but with a 3-years old in kindergarten it seems almost impossible to avoid the wast impact of barbie, princesses, pink and glitter. And I see that we are very strict compared with many other homes (no barbies, no disney plastic), but I do find it a difficult issue... What are your experiences...?
