Dutch beauty

Thanks to the amazing Susie Bubble, i just discovered such a beautiful Dutch(!) clothing line. It's created by Barbara Munsel.
I was really amazed by the gorgeous prints and the lovely soft colours and the wearability of these designs.
I wonder what you think of it, let me know!

André Kertész & Rumi

On the August issue of Vogue UK, i found a little article about this photographer.
There was a gorgeous black and white photo included, which immediately caught my eye.
Jewish André Kertész, born in Hungary on July 2, 1894 and died in NY on September 28, 1985.

Next to one of his photographs i found, was this beautiful poem by Rumi.

You who are not kept anxiously awake for love's sake, sleep on.
In restless search for that river, we hurry along;
you whose heart such anxiety has not disturbed, sleep on.
Love's place is out beyond the many separate sects;
since you love choosing and excluding, sleep on.
Love's dawn cup is our sunrise, his dusk our supper;
you whose longing is for sweets and whose passion
is for supper, sleep on.
In search of the philosopher's stone, we are melting like copper;
you whose philosopher's stone is cushion and pillow, sleep on.
I have abandoned hope for my brain and head; you who wish for
a clear head and fresh brain, sleep on.
I have torn speech like a tattered robe and let words go;
you who are still dressed in your clothes, sleep on.

Let's not forget to decorate.....

....our houses
and our lives.

Lately i've been seeing some beautiful pictures from James Merrell on several blogs.
I thought it was time now to do a little 'research' myself.
I love how all the pictures look so calming and peaceful....

As you all know, i feel LOVE for vintage teacups....
That's why i made this mosaic full of the most beautiful cups, found on Flickr.

What about these gorgeous birdies on the wall?
I love it!

I love this, mainly because of the old sewing machine (oh, the beauty!) and the flowerd fabric 'doll'. I'd love to have one of those...

Last, a few things i'd love to have for decoration...
My boyfriend said today i already have waaay too many stuff, but he does like most of my things, so i guess it's okay. And...it's still MY place! ;)

(This is a great idea...wallpaper like this is very expensive, but when you buy a little pice and put it in a frame like this, it's much cheaper, but also very nice!)

My biggest wish: a gorgeous vintage sofa....

The fear

The fear you won't stay....
Very noticeable at this moment.


Don't leave me like a falling tree....once so strong...


Let us shine, although we're surrounded by darkness.....


I promise....


Walk with me...


Through rain...


And sun.
