vintage textiles

from the fleas the last weeks

Kuba raffia cloth with cowrie shells and plastic beads embroidered
from DR Congo

a salomon printed curtain in halflinnen-like the eyes, actually I saw only them and not the roosters!

a very weird black printed curtain, it's almost too much, you really need a big room for this

more green

found some more objects in green the last weeks
and yes, I'm collecting plant pots but only in shades of green and black
and it seems that it's the colour of the coming season in interior

the small painting I found in an antique shop in Antwerp
it shows definitely a landscape from the canton of Berne
the house is typical for Emmental-yes where the cheese comes from!
it feels good to bring something like this home

new sheep

I already did it once
2 new black sheep
washed and dryed
would like to make a blanket out of them
felting is not really my kind of stuff
but maybe weaving it in a fabric or knitting it in
still have to think about it

I like the curls and dreads
like how archaic it feels to wash wool like this

had this in my mailbox today
don't like the music but her clothes and the woods
