Today I got last issue of LivingEtc. There is a tiny article about my home...I won the See your home competition back in August. :) And also this fantastic home of Eliza Barnes.
I have been working on loads of things last couple of weeks. I was like a sponge for very long time and now is time to squeeze everything out.....
Man has places in his heart which do not yet exist,
and into them enters suffering in order that they may have existence.
The End of Affair which was written by Graham Green. I named my etsy shop after the two main characters...Sarah & Bendrix. I have a little obsession ...
A story has no beginning or end : arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back or from which to look ahead...
So this is a record of hate far more than of love, and if I come to say anything in favour of Henry and Sarah I can be trusted: I am writing against the bias because it is my professional pride to prefer the near- truth, even to the expression of my near-hate.
have you read the book or seen the film ?
Labels: sarah and bendrix
After encouragement from my family and friends I opened an Etsy shop. I still have to do a lot. First change some pictures, they are too dark, how hard is to photograph in this country? Second: more tags, descriptions etc. Third: add more items I have...
But for now it's 1.41am...!!! and I should go to sleep. But what do you think of it ??? suggestions, advice, comments...please..
another dream list
14 September 2009
I was doing some serious shopping last couple of days:) to be more honest I have bought few items but now have a long wish list. From very very soft slippers to a very very designer lamp. But I would be fine with these slippers for now. And the lamp ? is 180 cm high, designed by Wales -based Freshwest and put together with mathematical precision. Each oak section is fitted together with notches and pegs, while two cast -iron parts enable its Anglepoise -like movement. What do you think of it ?
All inspiring in different ways. Which one would you buy ?
1. Avedon Fashion 1944-2000 . Fashion, photographs, style...survey of the great photographer's work.
2. Eco House Book from Terence Conran. How to turn your home into virtual eco paradise.
3. The Hand of the Architect. Donated sketches from famous architects. 378 signed illustrations and a Moleskin sketchbook.
4. Laura Ashley. How it all started. From modest beginnings printing tea towels in the kitchen to phenomenal success.
5. Woman as Design....women and art, design, influence, power...
6. Mario Testino Rio de Janeiro. Rio, Mario, Gisele, Copacabana...sexy..

a very talented lady ...paloma's nest
and me :)...today I finally finished the hallway cupboard. It took me long time to decide how to use the space, because our hallway is very small and we have a quite few coats, bags, shoes, more bags and more shoes:). I will post pictures tomorrow.
New tree from Dwell Studio in A.'s nursery. She keeps pointing at it and shouts "teee":) I almost finished another DIY project today. A big cupboard ( I really never have enough) in a hallway, for all the shoes, coats and bags. Hopefully will be finished very soon...very very tired now.....
