a new addition

In this issue you'll find how to care about spider plants, one of the easiest
plant to grow at home, very resilient and hard to kill.
I like this magazine very much because it makes you travel around the world,
to see things in different ways and most of all it's unpretentious.
If you don't know this magazine already, I hope you'll give it a go, 
far from the usual garden/plants magazine, it covers an array of topics,
from botanical lifestyle, real people, landscapes 
all in a spontaneous and fresh approach.

(I'm a bit behind with my new website and shop,
since issue 6 of the plant journal is out I added it in my bigcartel shop,
until my new site is ready).


few new pieces from Japan in my home.


I'm knitting a pair of socks with a yarn from habu (leaf green) I hope to 
finish them before I'll go to Berlin.

Have a nice weekend.



copper and greens

Hello there,

it's been a bit quiet here, all the opposite in real life.
I received sad news and also good news.
The sad news worry me.
The good news is that I'll go on holiday soon.


A new plant hanger with a copper base in my bigcartel shop.


I'm working on a new website, with a  new webshop and blog.
I hope to show it to you soon.
La casita will close the doors once the new website is on...
I think it's time to turn page.


A lot of sunshine in the last few days, 
we spent a lazy sunday in our thrifty garden,  
eating, drinking rose lemonade and playing.


A big thank you for your orders and your support, 
the latest orders are on your way.


shop update

Hello there, friday finally.
I've been busy updating my little shop.
You'll find some handmade and some vintage.
It's the last update in that site, some changes
on the way.

Thank you for visiting.

back in the shop

I've made new plant hangers,
few of them in the e-shop for the next update:
friday 9th.

(plants not included)


new weaving + more succulents

A new wall hanging I finished yesterday.


Crassula ovata or 'jade plant', I have it for six years now.
It was a tiny cutting when I got it, it has grown unruly as I don't cut it to shape it.
I've taken few leaves and tiny branches to propagate this one too
along with several sedum leaves and cuttings.

I've been looking for this plant (crassula umbella) for ages but never managed to find it,
sometimes when you stop searching for something you'll find it.
