Brand Spotlight - Casa Midy

I can't believe I didn't know about Casa Midy before. I just spent hours checking out their catalogue.


Casa Midy was established in San Miguel Allende, founded by French Anne-Marie Midy and Mexican Jorge Almada. Casa Midy mixes a contemporary design with the traditional artisan methods of manufacturing, which make their designs totally mouth-watering to me.

This is an excellent option for your house and garden, so I recommend you to visit their page. It's got all their newest designs, and trust me their good!

As for me, I'd LOVE to have one of those tables in my living room... and definitely a lantern in my patio. I hope to get them soon!

Designer Spotlight - Cia Wedin

Hey there! Merrry Christmas to you!

Our Christmas dinner was amazing. We spend it together, in family, and that itself is a wonderful gift. Today I woke up searching for beautiful images, and boy was I lucky! I found  Cia Wedin, a Swedish stylist and designer, with an amazing portfolio. I'm loving her stress-free style; visually gorgeous.


Have a great day! ;)

The Party is Here!

Welcome to our first linty party at Casa Haus.

Today it's all about sharing our Christmas home, crafts, diy's, you name it! If it's christmassy, it works!

In my case, I've been working lately on this project I'm sharing with you. I'm so excited. I hope you like it and find it inspiring for your own home.

As you recall, last year I made a pine cone wreath, and eventhough I loved it, this year I'm going for something new. Still pinecones, but with a twist. I got it finished just in time to participate in the party! Yay!


I used some magnolia leaves (from mom's garden), last year's pine cones, and some berries from the craft store.

Magnolia leaves are excellent for crafts. They are absolutely gorgeous. After drying them, I used acrylic paint to keep the silver theme going.


And I hot glued them to a wreath I bought at the craft store.


It's actually pretty simple, you just need to figure out the place for each leaf and pine cone. ;)

Ain't it lovely? There I am with my new wreath... and my bff, my camera. :P
and now, let's start the party!

Hop over to Casa Haus Spanish and link up!

Pom Poms Tutorial

As I told you, I made some tissue pom poms for the First Communion.
They looked really cute! 

This is my own twist on Martha's tutorial, so grab a pencil for my little tips.  :) 

My advice:

-Use TEN sheets of paper instead of eight.
Your pom poms will be fuller, and will remain open for longer. 
-Make sure your folds are 1 1/2 inches wide.
Narrow folds don't look as pretty.
-When you twist the wire, make a little hook (step 3).
It'll be soooo handy when hanging your pom pom.

-Half pom poms look just as cute for tables.

-You can use tulle fabric instead of tissue paper.

Have you made pom poms?

Acapulco Chair

Straight from Mexico, meet the Acapulco Chair.

From unknown designer in the hip 60's, this chair is made of iron and is knit in an old Mayan fashion, similar to a technique used when knitting hammocks. The Acapulco chair is gaining popularity everyday thanks to it's spectacular design of simple lines and retro style. It has even been successfully presented in New York and Copenhagen.

I love it, as I love the memories it evokes from my childhood. :)
