It's good fun to see the dogs running around at the beach but today there was just a tiny strip. Due to the storm the sea came up right towards the dunes. It was way to tricky to walk on the jetty for a good  that runs into the sea.... 
i'm flying...

YES! The nordic pullover for Nando, my shorthaired teckel, is ready! 
He really likes to run about in the grass when we go out walking. Stretching his little legs & jumping around like a goat. But the first day the grass was all frozen up he was shaking like a leaf. So i decided to make an exception to the rule (no dressing up the dogs) and had this pullover made by my sweet sister! 
I wasn't sure he'd appreciate it, but it turns out Nando does not mind wearing it at all!....Still i will keep it just for those snowy days! 
We take orders, just let us know!

Walking the dogs on the early saturday morning is fabulous for outside it's so quiet and peaceful. Nature has already exposed it's great treasures. Take the combination of the spider's work and the dew, little glass pearls on a string.. simply amazing!

These wallpapers were made by a Milan based design duo Francesco Rugi & Silvia Quintanilla (Carnovsky). I love the transparency of the figures, think they will look amazing on HUGE! walls...

Last weekend i visited the remarkable exposition of Henriette Simons. She showed various paintings in the back of Neef Louis 2nd hand shop in Amsterdam. A striking spot, as she placed the work in between the vintage goods of the shop. The work of Henriette is created with tangible memories from the past and translated into the present time. These old memorable pieces show the ephymerality of life. Sympathetic works of a sympathetic lady!
