and now for something slightly different

This punk with stinkyfinger was one of my early dolls.

A while back Elisa left a comment on this blog and said, it would be nice
to have a little-punk-with-stinkyfinger-rubber-stamp

and I thought well, why not. Ok, in fact I thought, OMG that´s a FABULOUS IDEA

So here he is for all you punk hearted girls and boys out there :)






It´s really fun to use these paddy sticks (from Rico Design) and play around with colors

I only have a very small number of this stamp available at the moment,
which I´d like to offer exclusively on the blog

*******************************************************
Print size: 6 cm in length, mounted on wooden block (4 x 7 cm)
Prize: 12 EUR plus shipping
*******************************************************

If you want to stamp your town with a stinkyfinger punk too, please
send me an email to sandra(at)herzensart(dot)com

Thank you and a special thanks to Elisa!

parasols - new old love





I had found 2 old parasols at a fleamarket in France. The one in the pic above and
this one. Both awakend some childhood summer memories, so I had to take them with me
(each was only 2 EUR)

The red bench in front of my studio is from grandmothers house, one of the pieces I wanted to safe

Viking no.134 is a custom order and the last one with this kind of dotted fabric.
The fabric is all gone now.

while I was away...


+ the grass in front of my studio grew high

+ and in the factory garden as well

+ a copy of the new Penguin book "simple softies" arrived
{it includes 15 quick and easy patterns, 2 of them are my pink submarine and the little anti-spy-Xmas tree}


+ some more fabric swatches from stoffn.de

I´m slowly getting back to work, which I find not easy at temperatures over 30 degrees
But the back part of my studio is like a {dark} cave and stays almost chilly


I like the pics at folcloric blog
