Flea Market Finds

I was hanging out with a friend at the fleamarket, when I spoted these fabulous nutcrackers wich are just what I needed for the christmas decoration of the shop. I made a feather wreath to complete the Vintage European Christmas look I was going for. Here I show two arrangements, one with a pale nordic look and a more colorful one, still don't know which one I will use for the window.

Neena's creation

This patchwork mat is our solution for the mess under the highchair, protects the carpet when kids play with dough and best of all, is perfect for a picknick. This is the one I like best with the classical red and white combination.

Retro fabric

While in NY we also went fabric shopping. We found this retro fabric from Robert Kauffman at B&J fabrics on 7th Ave right in the fashion district. I love the color, I am so into purple lately...

Flea Market finds

I went to 'La Lagunilla' flea market searching for treasures to fill the new shop. I found this beautiful chair. I've always loved chairs, there is something about them, they resemble sculptures. This one was found in a small village on the mountains of Oaxaca. You can almost picture a local woman ebroidering while sitting on it.

NY Inspiration trip

Two weeks or so from opening the first ever Neenä shop, we went on a very inspirational trip to New York City. Here we are at Petrarca Vino e cucina in Tribeca where they had the oilcloth tablecovers that we like so much.

Handpainted enamel thermos we found at a made in china store on Broadway in Soho.

We watched "Il y a longtemps que je t' aime" at The Angelika Film Center.

Beautiful crochet blanket from Anthropologie.

Aina at Moma next to one of Mark Rothko's paintings

Lovely window from a shop in the East Village. Yarn balls give a very homey feeling.
