After several days of thinking,i decided to open up my second shop on Etsy.In this shop i 'll be selling handbags and purses made out of cotton.So far ,i didn't had much time to support it the way i wanted to.Its already full season with my knits but with some help from my husband ,i think i 'll be alright.I named it "milloo" because i really like the way it sounds...

This is the famous "liston".Its located in the city of Corfu.Long time ago,only the rich and famous were allowed to sit for a coffee.There were a list of names that only they could sit there.That's why it is called "Liston"

Just me and my two children
Back to real life once more.Although this is happening every year ,i can't get used to the idea that i must wait a hole year to leave the city for a month.This year me and my husband took our two children and went to the island where i came from.Corfu.It was really relaxing although my second child ,who is 4 months old,has a lot of needs and demands my fully attention .At least i cleared my head from trying to find new designs for my shop and organizing it.My only concern ,besides my children ,was what time i will take my towel and my sunblock and head to the beach.I really love the beach of my village.A very long sandy beach with cedars on to provide you the necessary shadow.On my return to Athens,i came up with lots of new designs to knit.They will be occasionally posted .I also tried a recipe in Corfu that its great and very very hot.It is called Burdeto and I will post it for sure .Here are some pics i took during holidays.

I didn’t know, till recently , about sling. It’s easier to wear around you and more comfortable for the baby.When I had my first baby,I bought a pouch.Neither me or my husband ever wear it because there were too many stripes on it and till it would be ready ,I normally took my baby boy in my arms and leave.Now,on my second one,I ‘ve decided to make a sling .
I found a great pair of aluminum rings from ocbabyDestash just for the particular purpose…
Recently I purchased a pack of colorful crochet hoods from Margherite.When I saw them I couldn’t resist myself from buying them. After all, vintage is coming back in our life. A perfect chance to add some color in my toolbox. I haven’t use them yet but who cares ,as long as they are there to be seen…
