Paris-the suitcase

I remember when I was 16 years old, I was wearing for one week the same let's say outfit and now I can't decide what to take with me to Paris for 10 days! 10 Outfits for every day one, even if I stay nearly have of the time in the theater in the dirt and half of the left half in bed!
Actually this packing every time get's on my nerves.
Why can I not be a minimalist? Cause I'm an addict!

coming soon: Paris

It's spring, finally and I'm looking forward to spent a while in Paris.

Want to eat in the restaurant of Inaki Aizpitarte.
Want to have lunch here.
Will have a look in this shop every morning when I go to work. (My old friends will remember the story of the chair for 18'000.-- Euro!)
Want to go to the Hamam here.

Too many Hacktätschli

I'm normally a quite strict vegetarian, but sometimes there is...
Hacktätschli-the little Hamburgers in Swiss german

the last 3 days I had to eat my Hacktätschli in all different variations:
pure late at night
and today with japanese vegetables.
Finally I liked the vegetables the most, the smell and taste of fresh ground black sesam is so good.

I think I'm still a quite strict vegetarian.

crochet wig

The crochet wig I worked out for my friend Annette.
She sent me some pictures from a shooting.

More of her beautiful work here.

My one and only jeansjacket was 8 years ago allready quite worn, but now it is nearly destroyed.
I found a similar one but it's a kids size for 10 years old-I don't know any child of this age-really a pitty!
So it goes into my vintage fundus.

I don't buy often something through the internet, but I knew for a long time what I was searching for and I found it.
The little vase from Rosenthal: Pollo from Tapio Wirkkala

It's nice to get it from somebody who cared a lot about it. Like J. told me it is called "Busen" in German and it's true. The vase looks similar. She is a really nice object. And she (of course it's a she with this form!) fits to my other white vases.
And the hulahula vase I like as well. Hawaii is calling.

coming soon: home from Elsemieke

My friend Elsemieke and me went to the Retrobeurs in de thriftstore and found the perfect springoutfit for her.
What I like is the mix of Second Hand and cheap clothes which makes a good outfit. And you have this unique pieces.
She recently moved in a new apartment: an old Jugendstil apartment, nearly not renovated.
Elsemieke is one of the persons I know, who has really a minimalistic but very warm style.
The complete Sneak Peak comes soon.

rolling matches

Thoughts about Japan and Lybia during rolling matches for the performance. Our performance which is an artistic apocalypse! What an ironie!
I don't like feeling posting much these days.
I hope, that human being start to change their ways of living and thinking. I really hope!

Reales Alcázares de Sevilla

The royal palace in Sevilla has one of the most beautiful gardens I've ever seen. From the moment I entered and had the peacock with his dance in front of me I was lost in this garden. So, I nearly didn't see something from the palace itself which is spectacular. A feast for the eyes!

Lady Sevilla

From the waitress in the café to the waitress between the Holy Virgines in a very special bar!

Sevilla windows

Sevillas windows are little gardens-I like that!
And the colour combinations are great and the mess of flowers!
Just a pitty that it was nearly constantly raining.

recently thrifted

Went to Brussels and found some amazing pieces. I wonder sometimes that somehow I often find the things in the right timing like I need them.

heavy leather scissors
a fantastic terracotta pot with now chips-heavy to carry through the whole city but worth the pain in the arm!
a clutch in best condition and a perfect model for my leather class
the sunglasses for Seville
an amazing book about Antonio Lopez Garzia-more of him soon
my first musicinstrument for my wish to make more music this year!

The land of the oranges and the hotest spot in Europe is for next week: we're hading over for Sevilla.

Dalmatian lost one eye

On the way to buy a drill machine in the Blauwe Hond I came along this dog.
A dog out of Molton, with glasseyes (actually only one left!) and handpainted dots and face.
His stuffed with straw.

A shelter-a dream

Eine Hütte, ein Zufluchtsort, eine Werkstatt zum arbeiten-das ist mein Traum.
Aus dem Fenster ins Grüne zu blicken.
Feuer zu riechen.
Blumen pflücken.

"Early man had to built with readily available local materials-canes and grasses, leaves and twigs. From these pliant and insubstantial materials he had to create a relatively permanent and structurally rigid unit."
(Di Lloyd Kahn, Shelter, by Shelter Publications, California, 1973)

Fool text about a Shelter from Amanda Maxwell in apartamento #6

Photos from:
"Woodstock-handmade houses"-a fantastic book from 1974!
"Sumu" japanese magazin winter 2011
IDEAT magazin

I'm dreaming of having a house I can built a little by my own.
Nature is important, green, flowers, forest and mountains or water.
It could be modern with a touch of old!

Here are my favourites so far:
