wake up Dorothy . . .

A pattern of a child's dream. Once you take them out of the jungle... well, might as well dress them up and let them pick flowers:)

organic spirits . . .

Although the snow is still mounting and the weather is still harsh... the little organic spirits are planning their spring show... deep underground (in their little spirit houses)...

a whole new wall . . .

The plate wall is up and I love it! It has elevated the dining area from 'all right' to 'awesome!''. I wanted to take a picture from straight on... but the lamp was in the way. I might need to change to something far closer to the ceiling.
Thanks again to Lisa Congdon for inspiration and Heather Moore for helping me start my collection:)
Oh... and to Michael - for putting up with my precise directions:)

platewall in progress . . .

I've long been admiring Lisa Congdon's platewall (here)... Such a great way to display a collection. So much life it brings to a wall... love it!
So... I've decided to make a platewall of my own:) I've almost got it all planned out. Will show you once it's all up:)
p.s.: Heather Moore has helped me start an entire collection of Fiep Westendorp plates. Thanks Heather!

ta da!

I'm dropping in to show you what's making me happy this wintery Friday:) It's my very own Alexander Girard Vitra doll. I love it so much! What a shot of colour for the living room. One day (when I find a suitcase full of money that someone conveniently forgot on my doorstep) I'll get the rest of these lovely Girard dolls.
Happy friday to you - and a great weekend!

the smell of summer...

Ok... it can't be that long until summer. It's like a watched pot - it doesn't boil, I mean melts... snow that is.

you can do it!

I'm trying to get back into shape I've never been in:)
Holidays were so delicious - I've kept them with me... right around the middle.
It's not much... but I'd like to feel healthier and hibernate less... so I made this print to encourage me... and maybe you too!
Of course... I could have spent that time exercising - but making prints is a lot 'funner':)

my Retrosaria ribbon . . .

Ta da! A collaboration with Rosa Pomar has resulted in this sweet wavy ribbon!
I've added it to my etsy shop here.

new look for . . .

This blog needed more bunnies. Well... it needed something new. It's been a while since I've changed things up. Still - a work in progress... What do you think?

feeling warmer...

Today - this is my favourite colour combination. It might change soon, but at the moment - this cozy coloured patterns provide just the right amount of warmth. A mental fireplace.
