Introducing Retro Love Photography: Fine Art Prints {giveaway}


I met Nastasia 9 years ago. We were both working as nannies in London, we were young, wild and free. We both had a passion for photography, languages and traveling. Today, we are both happily married to foreigners: she moved to the US, I moved to Canada. She managed to turn her love for photography into a full-time home based business and I couldn’t be more proud of her. I love her and I think everyone should hear about her and what she does.


nastasia buttonShe says: “Hi! I’m Nastasia, a 26 year old photographer based in sunny Orange, California. Photography has always been a big passion of mine, and after growing a nice collection of photographs from all my travels, I decided to start an Etsy shop in the summer of 2011. What started as a side hobby of selling some fine art prints has since grown into a full time business that I run from my home studio. My art can now be found on multiple mediums such as Iphone cases, pillow covers, photo wood blocks and jewelry. All of these products are  handmade by me with lots of love!” 




All my readers will be offered 10% off on pillow covers and wood blocks using SIXTINE10 and 20% off on everything else using SIXTINE20.


And because I love you that much, we are also running a giveaway contest. One lucky winner will receive an art wood block with picture of choice. Similar as these one, available in black or white, all art wood blocks come ready to hang. Beautiful nursery and home decor, it would also make a wonderful gift for a new baby! “Your first breath took ours away”, “She will move mountains”, “Young wild and free”…and so on!

Natural Baby Gifts And Toys by Mjolkig – Giveaway

Enter Giveaway & Win The Crocheted Wooden Teething Ring Of Your Choice With Mjolkig!

‘Tis the season to be pregnant! I am pregnant and quite a few of my friends are or have recently given birth. I have been on the look for useful yet pretty and natural birth gifts for my friends (and myself). Being a fairly new mum, my priorities have changed and from big name brand companies (pre-pregnancy), I have shifted my interest to natural, organic and handmade products.

Mjolkig’s crocheted wooden teething ring are amazing: there are not only absolutely beautiful, but they are handmade by a British mum of two anglo-swedish young children, and they are very practical. Easy to wash, easy to hold for baby, and highly resistant. My daughter has been enjoying hers for months. If you are interested in the Montessori and the Waldorf approach, you will enjoy this teething ring better than a plastic one.

Rachael is happy to offer one lucky mother, expectant mother, or anyone else for that matter (ie. you have a baby shower coming up or a birth gift to make…) the crocheted wooden teething ring of your choice. Colors are displayed on the Etsy Shop. She will ship anywhere in the world! 


Domestic Diva! Congratulations and thank you to all participants.

About Mjolkig and Rachael:

My items are inspired by Scandinavian folk design and handmade in Paris. I make natural and simple baby toys and gifts inspired by Waldorf and Montessori principles. My favourite items to make are the Montessori infant mobiles such as the Gobbi or Munari which are designed to stimulate the senses of the very youngest babies. You can see how my second son enjoyed his by taking a look at my blog or YouTube channel.

But my most loved items are the traditional Scandinavian crochet covered teething rings. I have been making them for many years now and they make perfect gifts for babies. I can custom make any colour that you like. I make all of my items in either Paris or the Swedish countryside where I live with my lovely family. I love to use natural, organic and non toxic materials and all items are packaged beautifully so that they can be given as gifts.

If you want to get to know me a little better feel free to visit me at where I blog about making my own children’s toys, natural living and applying Montessori and Waldorf philosophies to our everyday lives. I also run a free worldwide cultural exchange to put you and your little ones in touch with families around the world.

Please do come back to see what’s new in my shop because I have a lot more items to add!

Warmest wishes
