the colours of denial . . .

It's white,grey and windy out there again... but I'm going to stay in my spring denial as long as I can. Me and my vitamin D supplements, and my patterns... we can fake it out until the truly warm days get here. Hope your eyes can take it:)

Spring ?

It's been sunny and mild for 3 days now... and I'm almost fooled. Maybe it is spring. Maybe the winter got tired of listening to me complaining and left:) Aaaah... wouldn't that be nice:)

Swedish connection . . .

The good news: A Swedish company AHLENS has made a whole bunch of things with my 'raw connection' pattern. The sad news: It was available last fall in form of many products... but I've only received these last 3 samples that were (luckily) left behind. I'm happy I got to see these in person. They fit so perfectly with my kitchen:)

folklore . . .

What we've got here are three birds, two bunnies, one hedgehog and a whole lot of good times going on (while I'm modernizing folklore:)

the borrowers . . .

I'm taking my girls to see The Secret World of Arrietty (Myazaki's latest movie). In anticipation of the upcoming theatre adventure I did a few watercolours.

random happiness . . .

I like romantic outings and spontaneous acts of the heart... but not on Valentines day. I think that designating a day for it takes away from the 'special' and adds unnecessary sense of 'I must' and stress. Therefore, I'm celebrating random happiness today... and I hope I can bring a bit of it your way with this slightly weird and fun pattern I just made:)

warm palette . . .

A bit of a colour study to share with you today. A arm blanket of yellows and oranges.

Pippi in my print . . .

Pippi Longstocking - has made her way into a print! A childhood hero of mine. I wish I went adventuring on South Seas... and had a suitcase full of gold coins... oh, and super strength:).
