Get the Look Vol.19

Hand shaped door knockers originated in Muslim countries and symbolize the Hand of Fatima (recognized and used as a sign of protection as Evil Eye, just like the Hamsa).
We have two of these in the shop, beautiful solid brass vintage pieces, ready to give your door some character.

Don't you just love the textures of baskets? They give a rustic beach/ cottage vibe and can have a purpose too. Ours has a lovely stripe here and there giving it some extra color. These are great for couch throws storage, to cover ugly plastic plant pots, storage for logs for the fireplace etc.

Maybe this many swans is a little too much, although a lot of things do look more fun when grouped.
This little swan dish is a beautifully delicate piece made by Fitz And Floyd from 1981.

I hate hunting trophies and taxidermy but naturally found curiosities are always cool. We find some really cool bones on the beach, sometimes we don't even know what kind they are. This skull is of a wild boar, we have lots of them in the woods, and at night they come out in search of food.

While they look a lot alike the lamp above is electric and has a vintage look, while ours below is the real vintage deal. Both are very cool, perfect for a rustic or steampunk vibe.

Who says that beach vibes need to be blue, pink looks pretty beachy too.
Love the lovely shell print above, our pink beach decor is a beautiful vintage enamel piece from the brand Bovano of Cheshire, an atelier in Connecticut making only enamel pieces.

Cozy Creative Space

We haven't done any update on our move, we are still moving :D It has been almost 6 months, we are still in our old home, going to the new house 3 times a week. Our workspaces are now all there, and everything is almost ordered as it should, I'll blog about the new workspace once everything is done.
With the workspaces not under the same roof Mum has been knitting a lot, here she is very comfy and strictly supervised by the 3 Juanita's. Here an old blogpost about the Juanita's (Lulu, Olivia and Truusje).

Lulu's crescent moon eyes don't miss anything, not a stitch can be dropped under her supervision.

 Mum is right now knitting something that requires 8 skeins at once, kind of hellish if you ask me, so she needed a comfortable set up to keep sanity.

The Juanita's do get exhausted, luckily there are 3 of them so they can keep guard in turns.

I do hope that this set up will keep my mother sane, things don't look that good, and she only started yesterday :)
