staring at all the cracks he found himself surrounded by,
he suddenly realized security was an illusion...
These quirky fellows are made by a flickr friend of mine, Erykah
Erykah just openend an etsy store, called ticklishtoys where you find her funny creatures.
Look what treasures I got from Anne. By the way Anne celebrates her new blog address
with a giveaway of 2 of her cute linocut prints. Take the chance!

when Linda Gaylord from well known fabric store Volksfaden offered me to have one of my "what I wore today"
doodles transferred into a fabric pattern, I just couldn´t believe my luck.
But et voila, here it is: "What I wore today", 100% Organic Cotton Poplin, printed with Herbal Dyes
I think it´s a funny pattern for the coming summer season and nice for bags,
pillows and bedding, maybe curtains, a summer dress or tunic, or a skirt or whatever you are coming up with
The first herzensart fabric is exclusively available here
And what´s best: to celebrate the fact that Spring has finally sprung....
Volksfaden is having a Spring Sale... 20% off on all fabrics, patterns, and notions from
Saturday March 20th, until Monday 22, 2010
Please enter this code at the top of the order page:

this is the house of my great-grandparents and the place where my grandmother was born.
My family moved already before I was born and for a while nobody lived there.
Later my parents spent some weekends with friends over there.
my parents in 1967
Then the house was sold, but from time to time we came back together with my grandparents.
I remember my grandmother standing in front of the house and telling stories from the past.
Although the place changed over the years, she still felt a deep connection,
not only to the house and ground, but I think to her family´s past -
that´s what she called HOME.
Feeling some kind of "unsettledness" inside myself, I lately think a lot about what HOME is.
I´d like to know where or what do you call HOME?

I woke up early today and shot some pics of the snow covered garden,
wandered through the house with the camera in one hand and the coffee
cup in the other one, taking pics of some corners:
this the place where the art of Picasso meets the art of Graca Paz and others
- the guest restroom.
For a psychedelic dose just take a deep look to the tiles

I needed some small cards for give away by occasion and also to add to the
small packages, where no postcard format fits in. Both sides can be printed in
color. I think they are really cute and I like the little card boxes they are coming in.
Ordered online here
Sometimes my customers are sending me pics from my "babies" in their new homes,
this one makes me especially blissful
Grüffalo, alias Arni Twillson was taken to the carneval party in the kindergarden
by 4 year old Henry...
I´m still waiting for the rubber stamps to arrive.
Hope they are coming today, latest tomorrow.
I promise to ship your orders as soon as they are here. Thank you for your patience!
