Something is happening at Olivia Café! A bunch of cuddlies arrived yesterday and have taken over the windows! They are way too cute not to show you, so here they are!
The collection of super adorable stuffed dolls are marketed under the name Abril (blog here and facebook page here) and are handmade by Carmo, a native Portuguese artist who lives between Lisbon and Barcelona.
Made from bits of (pretty) fabric, pompons, felt, coloured rope and embroidered with beads, buttons or ribbons, they are each lovable in their own way, and can be used as toys or decorative items.
I can’t decide which are my favourite, although the cute little angels are very strong contenders, I have to say. Super as gifts, but also great as decoration for your Christmas tree!
Just look at these faces – aren’t they just lovable?
Considering they are handmade, the prices of all the Abril cuddlies are very reasonable, so why don’t you stop by Olivia Café (Carrer Pintor Fortuny 22) and check them out?
Hmmm… I also have a soft spot for these birds…
… especially this cool one with the funky denim scarf! Which do you prefer?
To celebrate the arrival of the Abril bunch, homemade cookie men, decorated with colourful smarties, have been added to Olivia Café’s usual delights, so be sure to order one when you drop by!
