Ndebele by Vittorio Locatelli

We love Ndebele!!!


We love Ndebele, the fab small house for children in colored carton (above). It´s so cute!!!.
Ndebele was designed by Vittorio Locatelli.

Locatelli, born in 1962, after studying art he received a degree in architecture from the Milan Polytechnic, where he has been teaching for a number of years. He combines work closely tied to architecture and design (primarily interior and exhibit design) with “studio” work involving the applied arts, from decoration to illustration to graphics and painting in the strict sense. He designed this fantastic Ndebele for Driade, the gorgeous workshop.

He has also designed fabulous hand tufted carpets, "the land" and "the sea" (pictures below) perfect for children room, and "i ching", modular animals in wool cloth, of various colours, in a white cotton piquet packing unit of four different animals, a lion, an elephant, a giraffe and a seal (below).

Catalina misses Ireland

The Strawberry Fraisier, Cafe Léon

Catalina has a really sweet tooth, and she knows she is coming to Dublin, where I live, in six weeks, so she is thinking about "Strawberry Fraisier", her favouirte cake in Cafe Léon, all the time. She loves drawing and also coloring, so she´s drawing and coloring a lot of "Strawberry Fraisier" in her chalkboard (pictures below). She always ask me "Ana, when are we going to eat a strawberry fraisier to Cafe Léon?, it´s a such delicious cake!!!".

Cafe Léon is a cozy and welcoming popular cafe chain (there are three within a hundred yards of each other) in Dublin. The staff is real gent and all the cakes are delicious; my favourite, the Banofi Pie, but the cheesecake is wonderfull too. The tea is perfect and the coffee... this is Ireland.

Strawberry fraisier and cheesecake


Catalina es muy golosa y ella sabe que va a ir a Irlanda, donde yo vivo, en seis semanas, y ella está pensando todo el tiempo en Strawberry fraisier, su pastel favorito de Café Léon. A Catalina le encanta dibujar y colorear, y ella está dibujando un montón de esos pastelitos en su pizarra. Ella siempre me preguna: "Ana, ¿cuándo vamos a ir a tomar una strawberry fraisier a Café Léon? ¡ son tan deliciosos!."
Cafe Léon es una acogedora y coqueta cadena de cafés en Dublín. Los empleados son encantadores y muy atentos y sus tartas y sus pasteles son deliciosos. Mi favorito, el Banofi Pie, pero la tarta de queso es maravillosa también. El té es perfecto y el café... esto es Irlanda.

Happy birthday lonesome puppy

Ten years ago Yoshitomo Nara, the acclaimed artist, wrote his first book for children, The Lonesome Puppy, a sweet tale from an artist for whom childhood holds a magical appeal. So Happy birthday Puppy from Catalina to you.

The book tells the story of a puppy so big (even more than the planet Earth) that anyone notices him, so he is always all alone and lonesome, until a determined girl (picture below) climbs high enough to meet him and become his friend.


Hace 10 años, Yoshitomo Nara, el aclamado artista japonés, escribió su primer libro para niños, The Lonesome Puppy, un cuento maravilloso de una artista para el que la niñez conlleva una mundo mágico. Por lo tanto, feliz cumpleaños puppy de parte de Catalina.

El libro cuenta la historia de una perro tan grande, incluso más grande que la tierra, que nadie se da cuenta de su existencia y, está siempre solo, hasta que una niña valiente trepa lo suficientemente alto para llegar a él y hacerse su amiga.

Happy to see you "Portant"

we love this stunning
