Toby and I spent a long, quiet weekend in the French speaking part of Belgium, the Ardennes. Little tiny villages clustered over hills and rivers and farmland and beautiful forests.
These photos were taken around the village Celles which was one of the prettiest villages we visited. It also had the best patisserie. We ate sweet, flakey millefeuilles in the sunshine for breakfast. Très délicieux!
ra is a concept store two floors of fashion, an exhibition & sculpture space, book store, music corner and a cafe. It's goal is to support young artists and independent fashion designers. It was really inspiring seeing some of the work there- so adventurous and different to I've been seeing here in Amsterdam. Made me feel excited about making stuff- and that there's a market for the kind of stuff I want to make.
Made of brass, felt, glass beads, silk thread, this brooch is from the Rose tint my world series. The cross and the skull are both ancient symbols of protection. It came out a little more day-of-the-dead than I was expecting but I really enjoyed making this piece. I love the final result, it's a bit mental.
Our friend Fiona made this beautiful quilt for the baby. Amazing huh? So sweet of her. It makes me want to make a few things myself. Well- I have started a few projects but somehow I have yet to finish anything. It's all becoming very real now though, this baby thing. We even bought a pram, which sits in the lounge looking out of place and awkward. Also, bending over is getting harder. Once something is dropped on the floor, it kinda just stays there.
