love, love, love

actually I was searching for a kitchen sink for the studio, when I stumbled upon some old little lampshades

and I immediately fell in love

So who needs a sink when one can have these beauties?

my new neighbor

peeping into my new neighbors studio

Jutta is an illustrator and she moved into the studio next to mine.
We broke down a brick wall to open the door behind the wall again.

Now we are connected, which is really nice and inspiring

a camel is a horse

hurray, the postwoman brought me a gift today

This cool T-shirt is from  beshart  , a visual communication studio in Belgium.

"These shirts are not for sale, they are our gift to people who have inspired us in 2010."
That´s what I read on their website. Oh, wow!

Thank you so much Inge, Serge, Bob and Tom!
