Happy Blog-iversary!

Today marks the third anniversary of Bubble and Speak and we could not be more thankful to all of you for reading us.
During that time, we have published over 500 posts, taken hundreds of photographs and travelled around Europe to share some of our fabulous finds.

The cherry on the cake has to be named one of the top 10 blogs for kidswear inspiration by WGSN for 2012 earlier this week.
See the full report on Bellisima Kids and make sure to visit all our fellow bloggers!
Wishing you all a great Christmas and Happy New Year.

O Christmas Tree

With Christmas just six days away, we thought we would share one of the most amazing Christmas trees we’ve come across this year.
Called the “The Taste Tree”, this piece was made from 5,000 donated ceramic dishes and cups in Hasselt, Belgium.
