I saw this cool Starlamp this morning at Sissy-Boy. Looks so pretty, a bit like Hollywood Glamour.

Would be cool to have a vintage one but I guess that would be not easy.

winter poster

The Christmas tree poster I got last year just after Christmas.

So now I need to get a frame but I just realized how huge it actually is. It´s going to be quite a challenge to find one that fits.

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??

I should be

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.

Ben Dickson

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.

Hi There,
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.
