A little bit shabby… a little bit Maileg!

I’m smitten with all things Scandinavian…

Especially their gorgeous homewares.

I’m a collector of GreenGate ceramics… I lust after IB Laursen

And one of those large Maileg Bunnies takes pride of place at the top of my shabbilicious wish list.


Shabby Art Boutique - A little bit Maileg


I won’t be getting a Maileg bunny anytime soon,

So I sufficed with a little homemade version of a mini Maileg bunny.

She’s not perfect….

I’m not even sure if the dimensions are correct…

But I LOVE her just the same!

She’s hanging out today amongst my GreenGate collection in the kitchen,

But she’s equally at home in my crafting studio too.

Isn’t it amazing that a brand that started out as a child’s toy manufacturer has become such a loved and inherent part of Scandinavian interior design.

Those Danish are a clever lot and definitely leading the way in Scandinavian design with their simplicity, clean lines and gorgeous colours.

If you are not familiar with these brands, you can check out their catalogues here ~ GreenGate catalogue, Maileg Catalogue and IBLaursen catalogue.

Along with many other people, I’m looking forward to the day that these lovely brands are readily available in stores here in Australia, but until then I’ll have to be content with online purchases and the odd homemade look-a-like.

      Thank you LuAnn. My little Maileg look-a-like is still moving around the house. It’s become a bit of a game to see where someone places her next. I think eventually she’ll come to live in my studio 🙂

  11. I love this style of decorating too. I have seen some Greengate products at the Sunshine Coast when on holidays but don’t know of anywhere to get their goodies here in Brisbane. That bunny is so beautiful!

    Best wishes,

    PS My weekly Say G’day linky party is on now and I would be thrilled if you could share your post. Please pop over if you have a minute to spare.

      There’s very little GreenGate here in Australia Natasha and no one has the full range unfortunately. Denmark seems to have all the lovely brands… maybe we need a Danish distributor to get us stocked up. Thanks for visiting and I’ll definitely pop over and check out your party 🙂

    She is perfect! Do you by chance have a tutorial or pattern for your maileg bunnies?
