Deze ontzettend leuke wissellijst van het Deense ontwerpersduo Moebe zagen Jeroen en ik bij Strand West. Een paar weken later lag er thuis een cadeautje voor me klaar..lief! Direct bloemetjes gedroogd, dat was lang geleden. Ik denk wel 30 jaar.. Nog best een klus om de bloemetjes heel te houden.
Jeroen and I saw this beautiful frame of the Danish designers Moebe at Strand West. A few weeks later, he gave it to me as a gift! It’s been a long time since I’ve dried flowers. I think about 30 years.. Quite difficult to keep the delicate flowers in their original shape.
Mijn moeder haakte de kleertjes van deze schattige poppetjes, zo’n 35 jaar geleden. Wat is het toch fijn dat ze nooit wat weggooit.. De foto is niet scherp, maar ik vind het eigenlijk wel mooi zo.
My mother crocheted the clothes of these cute dolls, about 35 years ago. So great she never throws away anything.. The photo isn’t sharp, but I like it this way.
I’ve painted our gardentable the color “Dotterbloem” by Flexa and suddenly I see yellow everywhere! Like this nice Clipper tea-package design, for example. Name: Lemon & Ginger ‘infusion’.. great synonym for tea! Since the IKEA BRÅKIG collection, I serve my cups of infusion combined with saucer, just because it looks so nice..
These beautiful ceramics are made by Dutch designers Alissa + Nienke. Having met at Design Academy Eindhoven, they joined forces by combining their expertise in material, color and having fun with experimenting.
It feels like being in a candystore..
You can see and buy their work at the exibition Meet the locals at LhGWR in The Hague, opening 18 January 2014, 4PM – 6PM.
Because you can’t have enough of them, I bought myself this beautiful big handmade pillow from Hebben & Houden, made of old woolen blankets. After one of her pillows was in the latest VTWonen, Esther has been very busy making new ones. She also customises pillows, so you can have your own new years whish on your couch soon!
I still love reading my favourite blogs, but for a while know I lost the urge to write and post myself. In 2014 I really want to post more frequent again, because it’s so nice to look through my own personal findings. I also want to be more creative again. Too little time was a bit a problem lately. (Too) soon, Jens will go to kindergarten so I weekly will have FOUR FREE HOURS! I’m already fantasizing about how to spent these hours..
While cleaning up my site, I found a very nice draft posting with forgotten pics from Hidde en Jens, playing in a labyrinth in August, this year. Such happy pictures! I can still hear their excited screams, while we searched for each other (and ran away again). Good reasons to still post this draft!
It feels likes months ago, but it’s only two weeks ago we returned from France. I love glamping: enjoying the outside campinglife, but also staying in a beautiful big tent (it doesn’t deserve to be called a tent, it was more like a wooden villa). And most important: sleeping in a nice real bed. We were having the best of both worlds!
About meI'm Carly, living in Utrecht, The Netherlands, together with Jeroen, Hidde (7) and Jens (5). I like getting inspired by art, illustrations, design and just..daily life! Of course you can mail me!
