This week's Flickr Favorites where inspired by Psarokokalo's beautiful dog, Satie.

Visit ArtMind's blog to join the fun and admire more beautiful mosaics!

And we have been tagged by Chichiboulie a few weeks back, so it is time to do that. It is a little interview with myself :)
So here we go:

What is your current obsession?
Uhmm, I think it would be finding very interesting sea urchins and other treasures on the beach.

What are you wearing today?
I'm still in my Pj's, actually it is an old slip of my grandmother, I have about 5 of them and they are oh so comfortable, I had a sexy Grandma as they are all pretty and lacey :)

What's for dinner?
It's still early but I think I'll make a meal salad with spinach pasta, letuce, chicken and corn, yummm.

What would you eat for your last meal?
Pepper steak, medium to well done, with lots of chips *drools*

What's the last thing you bought?
I purchased a glasscase of my dear friend Renate who just opened a second shop on Etsy, Kreativling.

What are you listening to right now?
There is not much music in our house, mostly because of the dogs, they make enough sounds. But I love to have some hard music in the car, just the radio.

What is your favorite ice-cream flavour?
Strawberry and Lemon. I love chocolate but I hate chocolate ice cream.

What do you think of the person who tagged you?
Gretchen definitly has a great sense of humor, I always enjoy reading her stories at her blog. She must be a very loving person with 3 kids and a big kid (her husband) to take care of :)

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Oh that's a hard one... I think it would be close to the beach where we find the urchins so I could look for them every day!

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
New York, never been there and would love to see it!

Which language do you want to learn?
Spanish, I speak 3 languages very well, but not my mother's mothertongue, such a shame...

What's your favorite quote (for now)?
'Life is a bitch and then you die.' It might sound negative but it isn't, just it is a fact that life can be often hard and that we'll all die in the end :)

What is your favorite colour?
I hate these favorite questions, as I often don't have a favorite. For example red is a beautiful color but I would never wear red, and never ever would want a red car. I love to wear neutral colors, but I do love vibrant colors for my paintings and such.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
I have some clothes I love to wear more than others, but don't really have a favorite.

What is your dream job?
What I'm doing right now, making jewelry and accessories, it would be great if we would have some contracts with more shops.

If you could invent any useful invention, what would it be?
A cleaning robot! Ahhh.... *dreams*

If you had £100 (165$) now, what would you spend it on?
Bags or clothes.

Do you admire any one's style?
Misha Barton and Natalie Portman, they both are about my age and I love (mostly) what they wear.

Describe your personal style?
Comfortable, neutral with a different flair.

What are you going to do after this?
Taking pictures of new jewelry we've made last night.

What are your favourite movies?
Leon (with Jean Reno and Natalie portman), any movie with Morgan Freeman, any movie with Julia Roberts, Lord of the rings (all 3 in a row is the best way to go), Matrix (the first one was the best), As Good as it get's (with Jack Nickolson), The Mothman Prophecies (with Richard Gere) and many many more...

What's your favorite fruit?
I got a bad habbit from mum, we hardly eat any fruit although we love it, favorite is kiwi, strawberries and bananas.

What inspires you?
Nature, materials, movies and life.

Your favorite book ?
Harry Potter :D, Lord of the Rings, The time traveler's wife, and anything exciting :)

Do you collect something ?
Too many things actually, I have a big collection of picture frames, bags, lizards (of wood and metal), stamps and foreign money (the classics), magnets, and many more...

Are you a home body or do you prefer to be out?
I love to stay at home, but also love to be outside. When I'm home all day I need an hour outside, and all day outside is also not perfect.

Do you have any pets?
We have 15 dogs, life with them is wonderful although it can be hard and a great commitment. We never had dogs untill 7 years ago, it started with one and well in 5 years they became 15, by finding them adorable abandoned on the street. They are thankful, need alot of love, food and sleep :)

Are you a country girl or City Vamp?
I used to live in Amsterdam and I still love cities but I now love to live in a quiter place surrounded with nature.

    I love that sea-urchin nose photo. I had a fave childhood book, its title was "Fairy with Copper Nose". It is about an actress who plays the role of "fairy with copper nose" so well, that she becomes the fairy herself :-)

    The cover of the book was like your photo :-)
