The New Artisans
I seem to have always a book of the week or month that I’m constantly talking about to my friends and family. This time I’m going to share it with You too, it’s just way too captivating to be kept as a secret!
I’ll first read text on the back cover for you…
The New Artisans
Profiling over seventy artisans who use craft techniques to create stylish, whimsical, desirable objects, this book features hundreds of one-of-a-kind, handmade wonders from all over the world.
It’s even more amazingly beautiful than that text promises. I’m in love.
By the window to the woods where the deer and creatures play.
There is a girl -a dreamer of dreams with a sore heart.
She lives there among her books and tea and a measure of heartbreak.
Loving illustration, pretty things and falling asleep far, far into the night.
Safe & Sound
This song is my most recent discovery that I couldn’t just keep to myself.
(Somehow I usually find melodies to be more of an inspiration for paintings than visual things… I haven’t figured out why that is but this time it was the combination of music and misty moorlands that caught my attention. I hope it moves you too!)
On weekend I printed some of my tumblr favourites in black and white to get some inspiration for drawings and sketches -my printer is not too fancy so the quality is not the best.
But new ideas were arisen in my mind on that brief moment when arrangeing them on my wall. I seem to glance that way all the time. Thank you to a Friend who inspired me to make a collage. It was FUN :)
Now I need to start organizing this little attic space of mine. It’s not looking as tidy as my collage…
These days are dedicated to crafts
As waiting The New Artisans book to arrive here…
Have a good good morning,
Spicy food and a sweet phonecall
