the new Marks & Spencer Christmas tins

The Marks & Spencer design team did it again.

I was so curious what kind of Christmas cookie tins they will bring out in 2011. After I missed the Sanna Anukka tins last Christmas I made sure I went there in time this year. Mister kay was thinking I was mad  buying 6 tins in one go! I call them Antiques of the future but they also make fabulous Christmas gifts.

My favourite is the woodland tin (I just love foxes). That one is designed by Isak.

The bus is also great. I love the vintage look. It reminds me of mister Sasek's work.

Lap partners made the telephone booth tin.

Which one is your favourite???

Halloween weekend

Trick-or-treating... happy halloween weekend. You love it or you hate it. We saw these Holeween pictures in Hastings last week.

We where in Dover last weekend.  It's great fun to go to Dover Castel around Halloween time.

Martha Stewart always has some great Pumpkin carving and Halloween decorating ideas.
We still have to do some carving this weekend, I'm sure Mister Kay will be very good in that.

Have a good weekend.
I wonder what are you doing.

Bells Bicyles

Meggs store Bells Bicycles in Hastings is different.
It is very pretty, full of vintage, cool chandeliere, carpet and art
(that sounds more like my home than like a bicyle store, lol)

I have been looking for a new bicycle for a while now...
guess I would love a 70's chopper.

Our music at the moment is the new cd 
Metals from Feist (Nila's fav)
and  the new one from Bon Iver (my fav).

see you

Travel on Paper


It's not easy to find vintage travelposters, so I was delighted that Travel on Paper had a pop-up shop in Whitstable Harbourstreet this weekend. We really liked the Berlin poster.

Our time in the Uk went so fast this time, next time we will stay two weeks again... so I can spent more time with my friends.

hope you missed me

For the long cold winter I want this pocket watch cardi from White Stuff and this Huntsgrove Fox jumper from Aubin& Wills.

Hella Jongerius

On friday afternoon we went to Ikea looking for some
new curtains. I promised myself  not to buy
any kind of nic nac .

Guess you all know the vase collection 'Jonsberg'
by Hella Jongerius. I don't go to Ikea very often
but in the last years this vase was always sold out.
