There is beauty everywhere!!!
This morning on my way to the market.
A couple of weeks ago I got a vintage Kermit green winter coat but I must say I really liked the yellow coat this morning. Looks great with dark hair.
Which color is your winter coat this year?

A perfect mix of old and new.
Dreaming about a white Christmas tree for years now.
So I was delighted when my friend offered me one... to tryout.
Last weekend we had a little white Christmas.
Unfortunately Mister Kay wasn't very impressed with my fake white Graceland
What do you think... fake or not fake??
PS: cool Denmark poster

This week I should be in the garden. It's time to bring some of our plants in to the greenhouse and all the vintage furniture should go in to the shed.
But then I just got the new Frankie. Nice to see Anke Weckermann's work on the cover. So I'm sitting here and reading.
PS: music of the week Caetano Veloso

Elvis , Johnny Cash, Harry Hills and Morrissey... all my kind of icons. Ben Dickson's linocuts are amazing and pretty cool. I have seen his work in restaurants and in my friends houses. A couple of weeks ago I finally had a change to meet the man behind this art.
His work is totally my cup of tea. I just wonder which icon he will do next. My personal favorite is Harry Palmer.

Inox makes me happy...
my second doll from Juime (they look so vintage)
In the last couple of weeks I changed the color of my cupboard about 3 times. After driving my family and my friend Veerle crazy I finally decided that Inox from Little Greene is my color. Now I'm sitting here having coffee and enjoying my home.
