really like the cup cake part of this brooch... via french touche
and this portfolio by Jarno Kettunen
i've taken a closer look at my spoons....and that turned out to be
a very modest harvest let's just say that my collection can use some fresh input :
1 2 3
It's Friday again ... that went quick ... anyway have a nice weekend !
I've been meaning to show you this for a while now,
thought now is a good time since Autumn is setting in over here
click for bigger picture
It's a cabin by Mats Theselius called Eremitens koja meaning something like
the hermits hut... found it here
: beautiful portraits on smosch

Printed textiles by Dorte Agergaard Jensen , love the way she's showing them
and it would go great with the FLOCKS poof over here and these spoons...
Speaking of presenting....here's my first idea for the tea towel project
magnetic push pins by 100%

Work by Eiko Ishizawa.....very special
usually when someone says 'very special' they mean they like it but they're not
quite getting it or some other hurdle is stopping them from just saying 'beautiful'
I'm not sure yet about my reasons but i want to go and see it : until 30th of Sept.
in the Lloyd Hotel here in Amsterdam.
And i love Kelly's latest post especially the picture of the girl in the street.

What is a girl to say....just gorgeous isn't it
The only knew thing i can mention about Deepa Panchamia
is that she's taking part in this exhibition in Finland
And there's a new seedling in the growing spoon collection : by Sandra
.....i'm starting to get tempted
Have a lovely weekend !

Finally found the man responsible for this scarf 10 years ago,
Thibault van der Straete moved from Paris to Lima .... closer to the source
of his textiles : the alpaca's and only uses natural colors now.
My head is filled with wool like this skein from blue sky alpacas
something is brewing ....
And the tea towel project is almost finished which i'm really excited about,
need to do a photo shoot and a tag to go with it.....
through my stats i found Maize's blog who is a textile designer
... very beautiful designs

...New Marimekko fabric Aarni
A while ago Kelly showed me Lone lovschal's work...
She makes beautiful silver objects like this milk jug
the other one is made of porcelain .... and spoons.
It took me a while to find a nice combination but
....this one i like because it gives them a bit of power

Just saw this beautiful poof and rug by Paola Lenti on the style files...Daniele

Yesterday i saw this pullover for the first time , it could be that you've seen it
already but i had to show it .... i'm hoping she enjoys wearing it and that she
doesn't have to pose all the time. By pip squeak chapeau
Love these stones via rose&radish
And there's a new fashion magazine called lepli from paris aimed at fashion
students. Issue nr 1 is scheduled for Oct. 1st
Which reminded me of a long gone magazine called jeunes createurs
Took pictures of 3 clippings ...over here

As i said if your in and around Brussels this month , lots of things to see like :
New work by Christiane Högner at the 101% designed in brussels exhibition
space called CUSHIONIZED SOFA - an installation aimed to trigger our instinct for playfulness and spontaneity
and more interesting stuff because it's Design September in Brussels
Next weekend for example you can visit several design studio's/ateliers
Of which one is Urban Room
Posted by Loraine at Monday, September 10, 2007

Comptoir des Cotonniers fall/winter

When i saw this i thought my quest for a blanket was over...
Just love the colors and the transparency of the mohair.
By Lisbet Friis via redredred
....but it's a baby blanket and speaking of baby's I spent hours on a new to me
European version of etsy called DAWANDA looking for a present
Also spent hours on etsy where i would have bought these trousers and this bib if it would have been for my baby
And i thought all this would go great with this chair via k.c.k.

8 random things ..................................................................................................................
I've been eating strawberries with greek yoghurt every day this summer
Did that with tiramisu once....wouldn't recommend that one , although it was great while it lasted.
Two weeks ago i dyed my hair because i'm developing grey ones...
i like my own color and it's hard to find a color that looks the same
I called my blog grey but the word i use for it in private is rubble because that word
sums up all the different kinds of grey. I heard that word for the first time on September 11th 2001.
Large paint manufacturers started making what i call rubble colors because i wasn't the only one influenced in that way because of 9-11. They said it was because we needed safe colors around us.
Kate Bush used to be my roll model when i was about 10 or 12.
I love watching documentary's like the one over here
Next year i want to start taking driving lessons
Our cat isn't really ours , he walked in one day and decided he was going to live with us.
After 2 years he went missing , so we hung up posters around the neighborhood and we got a call from his owner who lives in our block telling us it was his cat. He doesn't mind Nico or Fritz as we like to call him is with us all the time.
Copenhagen is my favorite city to visit and i would like to move to Antwerp
One big + about Antwerp is that it's close to Paris.
I'm not tagging anyone else unless you insist on me to tag you.
I was tagged by Tracy over at simplyolive
