italian sunbed

Summervibes in the backyard...

During our adventurous weeks in Sicily, we sometimes went 'alla spiaggia' and spent a relaxing day on a typical Italian summer bed on the beach.

Those who have been in Italy, know that these beds are s u p e r comfortable and the small adjustable sunroof is really great when you want to read a book, look on your phone or just want to lie in the shade with your face.

We agreed, we need an Italian sunbed in our backyard. It's so easy when you can leave the sunbed outside all summer and the bed is light enough to carry it by yourself and move it around in the garden. Our vintage bamboo daybed is too heavy to take outside on a sunny afternoon, I can't move it by myself.

Moreover, we know from experience that it is good to invest in quality when it comes to garden furniture. We are enjoying our Fermob furniture for years now, and it's outside all year.

The summer of 2018 has been excellent so far, so we decided to go for an Italian lounger right away when we came home from Sicily.

We ordered a weatherproof aluminum sunbed at LIGBED EXPRESS, they have a huge choice of colors, designs and materials. We went for v e r d e, a beautiful fresh green!

The sunbed was delivered from Italy super fast to our home. So everyone is happy with it and we are using the bed in turns (haha, some even lay a towel on the bed, to reserve it...) Sicilian summervibes in the backyard!

I can recommend it to everyone, treat yourself to a real Italian lounger. Instant summer feeling guaranteed!

woodwoolstool baby blanket pattern

New crochet project on the kitchen table.

I haven't touched a crochet hook for a month and that's a long time for me.
After the Sicily summer holiday, I suddenly missed the crochet.

I felt like working on small 'garden projects', feasible on summer days, so squares seemed perfect to me.

I gave my original baby blanket pattern a new twist.

Now the squares are done and ready to turn them into a baby blanket and that's certainly a kitchen table project.

bb18 - baby blanket 2018 - is almost done...

la vita è bella in sicilia

The first weeks on Sicily we walked an average of 10 km per day, so we finally decided not to go on the Etna the last day. Time to relax on the beach the last days of our holiday.

Sicily may be part of Italy, however it's separated geographically and culturally and the island is rich in its own dramatic history. Blessed by a wonderful climate and welcoming people, proud to share their beautiful island with you. With a wealth of art and archaeological gems, historic cities, medieval villages, truly superb food and stunning nature. Sicily surprised us.

La vita è bella in Sicilia!
