A few weeks ago I went to “Unseen”. This photo fair was a four days celebration of inspiration and talent at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. Galleries from all around the world presented their work. I was overwhelmed by the diversity of ideas, techniques and subjects of photographers. Close to my heart was were the collages with different materials integrated such as paper and threads. Till next year! The thread works are by the amazing Julie Cockburn. The tower in the photo is a real tower (!) in Hong Kong. The big portraits on the floor and walls are a part of this.
My dears, I thought it is an appropriate date on the 1st of May to pop-up and say hello. It is a very busy time in my life at this moment and sometimes I feel that all is going to fast. I’m creating (or more honest to say- trying to create). I participated in a workshop inspired by my own work (was great!!!), got myself completely addicted to Pinterest and I had a shitty shitty shitty bicycle accident while riding with my daughter on the back of my bike…:-( That, I must admit shuck me down and took me away for quite some time. We are OK- the BIGGEST LUCK of all is that nothing happened to my daughter Romi. I got pretty badly bruised, but further we are fine… So, happy 1th of may to everyone. I cant say that I feel like a worker (although sometimes more like a slave..;-) But as an artist, creative women and a mother many times worker is the most accurate description … Soviet postcards are from Flickr …
Well, looking at this should give a good idea how (and with whom…) I’m spending my days…;-)
I have a soft spot for collars, you can tell by this and that. Only recently I discovered that this collar has a wonderful name: Peter pan. Trough the following links you can find very nice tutorials how to make one yourself. : ) From the top: faux fur collar, ASOS Leather Peter Pan Collar, Jolie Môme Peter Pan Collar, Collar gif, Vintage collar, Peter pan, Giant polka dot, Peter Pan collar tutorial,Vintage-collar-quick-fix
Lets get warm and cozy with beautiful Finnish knitted vintage socks, a warm cup of tea, lovely softie and a well dressed chair. Have a warm and happy weekend!
