All the luck in the world

'All the luck in the world'

ATLITW

I found Jane Schouten on Flickr and was immediately surprised by the beauty of her home, the art she makes and her shop i will definitely visit some day soon...

This is her shop!
Lucky me that she is Dutch and her shop is in The Netherlands!

Her home....











Her collection of tins....




Even her Christmastree is amazing...



Her ART work....



For this great thing...
you will definitely need all the luck in the world!



Visit the magnificent Oh, hello friend and see what amazing Etsy items you can win...
I will definitely give it a try!


(via Lolita)

One last, but IMPORTANT thing:

There's this lovely girl, named Leah Murray, who is putting together a short film.
The film is based upon the song 'This Little Light'. A film that asks only one question; what one thing would make the world a better place?



Leah is looking for contributors that want to be involved in this lovely, little project.
The idea is to film yourself while lighting a candle and answering the question mentioned earlier before.
Simple, but honest and touching.



If you are interested to contribute,
you can contact Leah via her emailaddress: ellerae @ live . com

EDIT AGAIN (stupid me!) : above the right emailaddress you can contact Leah through, the link didn't seem to be working!

The link you posted to Leah's film site (or whatever site she has) does not seem to go anywhere. Is there any chance you could pass on the URL or something; I am very interested in this.

Thank you, sweetheart!

Suusje Q. said...

Hi Mila!

Ik kwam via Igor+Andre op jouw blog. Ik ben een groot fan van die tekeningen en zag dat ze meerdere bloggers hadden getekend, waaronder jou dus! Wat leuk dat een Nederlandse als jij zo bekend bent geworden in de bloggerswereld. En heb je om de tekening gevraagd of is was het niet jouw idee?

Ik ga eens even je blog goed bekijken. Ik ben zelf ook sinds kort begonnen met bloggen. Any tips?

Liefs, Suusje Q.

greystonegardens said...

makemoremistakes said...

What beautiful photos...I love the necklaces hung on the wall- and all of the clean and bright colors. I hope you are well lovely- I miss you!

p.s. I will be in Europe at the end of August through whenever I run out of money (hopefully doing an Au Pair program in spain in October) so we should meet up somewhere and have coffee and take photos and explore.

Christine said...

That is a wonderful idea, I would love to be a part of Leah's project!

Will have to pinch the idea for hanging up your necklaces on hooks :)

And a great idea for the short film!
