For Shash's textile pattern week. A close up from a discarded plastic canvas chair from our neighbours. We use it for relaxing on the terrace. I guess it's eighties and a wonderful example for something that's so ugly that it's almost good again (but I think it's more on the ugly side). That's a very interesting topic and a fine line between cult and no cult.
Do you know this game: Somebody picks blind a few words from a wordbook and everybody tries to invent a story with these words. I think the words in the title are great for this game:
Little Monster - hot chocolate - canvas chair - profile
It's quite a complete story yet - think up something surprising! Want to play?
Painting a ship and a fish on plywood yesterday in the afternoon. Thought it would be a good idea to paint on the changing table in the bathroom instead on the floor. Cause in case Agnes waked up, the paintings were still save of her curious little hands. But: never make your plans without thinking of the cat. The changing table is one of her fav places. And extremely interesting with strange things standing on it. Hedwig walked through the yellow and the white colour and cleaned up her paws again. The sun stood deep and made dramatic light. Finally wanted to put the fish and the ship in the shop, but Oskar decided that they stay here with us :)
Reading a few posts about cookbooks and favourite cookbooks recently: here, here and here. This is mine. A Swedish cookbook that's wonderfully photographed and very personally written. Follows the seasons and uses for the recipes what the writers have in their garden. The original title is"Sannas Kokbok". The decoration on the top photo is made by Oskar, who said this would look great on the pic (he is right, I think) Do you have any favourite cookbooks?
Some exciting news about the power lines project: Erin from sculptress studio is now a part of it too. We asked her if she would like to participate and she said yes!!! Both Kristi and I like her polaroids very much. So we are three now!
Did get another "You make my day award", this time from j. Dear j thank you very much for this! Thank you as well for your kind and thoughtful comments.
Something to bring a smile on your face: this drawing and this doll
A collaboration between Oskar and me - a castle and its residents: a knight and a maiden, her chair, a fire (cause it was very cold in these old castles), a basket with blackberries and a bear. He is used to accompany the maiden while looking for berries in the forest. They all love to have paintings in the castle. The castle's name is "Meisenknoedel" = "titmouse dumpling"
