In the mood for some color like me? These will brighten up you and your home!

⌲ Next, a handmade wooden rainbow toy from Outside Everywhere, that will brighten up every gray day for sure!
◈ A Canning Jar pendant with veggies from the Yellow Owl Workshop, a happy healthy thing to wear. And it comes in a nice reusable packaging too: a thin glass tube with a cork.
◑ Everything that Jenn from Upper tiny touches becomes funky and fun like this Banana Fade Moleskin notebook.
» Yes, Give Peas a Chance! Okay, I’m buying this one and Gemma Correll you are awesome!
⚀ And on the bottom, Potted Succulents from the Etsy shop Little Canoe. In the item details it says that the print will remind you of summer all year through, exactly what I want!
It’s been so long but I’m here again! Hi!
This post is a little ode to my Morning fog reproductions. I’ve sold five in the last couple of weeks to Australia, England, Finland and The Netherlands and now they are all sold out! I had a fun time making them and I hope that the buyers will enjoy them. Above a photo of the last package that I’ve sent out and at the bottom Morning fog itself.
Today’s brooch is a handmade wooden feather brooch from Outside Everywhere!
They are a fun shop on Etsy who sell wooden toys and jewelry. One of the fun things is that their goods are eco friendly, they are made of sustainably-harvested poplar (local) wood and painted with high-quality AP certified non-toxic watercolors. Check out their shop for lots of brooches and cool toys!
I’m back! It’s really been too long. It’s a new beginning for me at our new studio (pictures soon in my next blog post) and to kick this off: a brand new blog post with a summer feel! The beautiful items and pictures above give me such a happy vibe, because all we need in summer is legs, feet and icecream right? And a bag and phone of course :)
+ Clutch Libro Petit Prince, I want this bag for lots of reasons I will give you two: it’s pretty and it’s a book bag.
+ Black Cat iPhone Case, I love everything that Leah Gorens makes, yes everything.
+ Popsicle project, a fun print made by Carmyn Joys that breathes summer.
+ From Where I Stand, a print with beautiful light and colors made by Stephanie Somebody.
I follow Carmyn and Stephanie on Instagram and discovered they both have an Etsy shop where they sell their wonderful photos!
You can wear all your awesome brooches as a pendant with the brooch converter from Broesj! It’s a small loop with a hollow tube attached to it. You simply slide the pin of the brooch through the tube and close it, that’s it!
There is a vertical and a horizontal brooch converter for brooches with a vertical or a horizontal pin on the back. I tested both and for me the vertical one (shown on the photos) worked best. With the horizontal one some of my brooches were leaning over a bit, this ofcourse depends on the placement of the pin on the brooch and the weight of the brooch.
The cute owl brooch you see in the photos is from Elizabeth Pawle, I can’t get enough of her illustrations and brooches! The brooch converter is available at Broesj, a super nice vintage brooch shop on Etsy run by Babette, she’s a big brooch lover (just like me :)
I’ve been all into geometric and folded shapes this past week. It’s crazy, I see them everywhere! So I decided to show you guys the most beautiful things I’ve come across.
The amazing hand folded lamp named Moth is from Studio Snowpuppe. The super cute want-to-have Squirrel origami pin is from The little drömstore. Andrea Simic makes beautiful delicate jewelry like this necklace called Pyramid Illusion. She sells it in her Etsy shop MIRTA. The polyhedra jotter is from the wonderful webshop Present & Correct, I have to say it: I love their product photos! Lenneke Wispelwey made the pastel porcelain cups ‘star & stripes’ I love the fact that they are part of a bigger family of porcelains. And the last one in the row is a work called Altered Book Folded Paper Sculpture from yinsteadofi, another store on Etsy.
The photos of the lamp and the cups I used are from the (web)shop & designshop, they’ve got nice products and have done some very good product photography as well!
I’m participating in the first Etsy Showroom in the Netherlands, yay! There are so many other wonderful participants that I’ve chosen a few shops to give you a little taste.
The first one in the list is Factory on the Moon where you can find handmade jewelry of recycled materials like this super cute cloudy brooch. The notebook with a photo print in the shape of a leaf is from Puur Anders, the handmade work in this shop has a beautiful lightness to it.
The zeppelin floating above the mountains is one of three of a postcard set made by de Krantenkapper. They (two sisters) design all fun things on paper and everything that has to do with paper. And yes, the fantastic spirograph is another brooch! It’s from the shop trincar uvas and beautifully handmade. Second Hand Sandy is such a fun name and says it all, the shop sells vintage dinnerware and other vintage things. I love this pretty plate and I so want it!
The big big pillow is from the shop Studio Lilesadi, don’t you just want to cuddle this one! They (twin sisters) make funky prints and silkscreen them by hand on all kind of fabric products. The diagonal photo shows a necklace named the Big Dipper/ Ursa Major. The shop Twinklebird sells a lot of beautiful and delicate jewelry but I’m totally in love with this one. Etsy makes sure that I want and buy a lot! My list is long..

On Etsy I came across this lovely work called ‘Bits of autumn’ (first photo), by Romina Bacci at her shop Miles Of Light. She makes nature inspired photographic art prints.
Looking at her work brought back some fun memories from school. The process of drying all kinds of leaves and flowers between paper underneath big heavy books. Going on a search for names and species. And once they dried you would stick them on paper and write the correct name down with them. The second thing I immediately related her work to is this book I own called ‘Bomen en Struiken’, the English translation would be: ‘Trees and Shrubs’ (second photo). The book has a big fun factor because the layout is so playful, every spread has a funky composition, different sized photos and little fun drawings.

Here’s three new works I’ve made! Their titles are ‘In sight’, ‘Flat view’ and ‘Preserved’. For more photos and information on each work check my Etsy shop.

There are all kind of things happening on the new workbench!
I’ve combined a second hand (hand made) picture frame + a beautiful work I bought from babouche rouge by Felicita Sala + a silkscreen print with dots of my own and this is the result! It’s going to get a nice place in our living room!
