Monday moodboard

“It gives one a sudden start in going down a barren, stony street, to see upon a narrow strip of grass, just within the iron fence, the radiant dandelion, shining in the grass, like a spark dropped from the sun”

~Henry Ward Beecher

Flickr favorites - collections

“One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach; one can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few”  - Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Last week I couldn't play the flickr favorites game. So here I'll make up for that. The theme was: what do you collect?
I  used to collect lots and lots of things:  vintage pinocchios, vintage black dolls, old wooden boxes, children books, camels, elephants, (no, not the real ones!) vintage jewellery, bottles..

now I  restrict myself to records, books, vintage jewelry and ephemera for my journaling craze.

1. Record Collection, 2. Book Piles, the Literary, 3. seashell jewelry collection, 4. box of treats

Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without

A little reminder to be thoughtful about what we use and use up what we have, to recycle, upcycle and reclaim.
We are kinder to the earth when we do.

Here are a few vintage items or items made of/with vintage materials.

Monday moodboard: Beautiful People


Inspired by all the beautiful people of the Europeanstreetteam, I made this mosaic.

In march 2010 I started a Beautiful People Project on hyves.
A project for everyone, fat or thin, large or small, young or old, black or white, gay or straight, muslim, christian or jew, who is beautiful, inside and out, who thinks that inner beauty is more important than your looks, who thinks that everyone is beautiful.
With the pictures of some of  the members  I made a slideshow.
