Eye Candy | Freeform Embroidery

Eye Candy | Freeform Embroidery

July 30 is always World Embroidery Day – a day when we celebrate the slowness of stitching and enjoy the company of needle, fabric and thread. I thought I’d share some of my past embroideries (including a skirt, artist trading cards and wall hangings), as eye candy and maybe inspiration for you to pick up […]

Eye Candy | Seed Beads

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. Buddha I have this Pink box with lots of compartments. It’s filled with different colored seed beads, and some sparkly sequins too… Each compartment is like jewel with all […]

Pink and Green

Pink and Green

I think my favorite color combination in the whole world must be pink and green. I am drawn to this combination over and over again, without even thinking about it. When pink & green shows up in nature it’s such a gift, and recently I’ve had it on my table reminding me that spring is […]

Eye Candy | Succulent in a cup

Think with your senses as well as your brain. Andrew Motion This little cutie keeps me company as I write. The newest addition to my indoor plant menagerie is a succulent, sitting right by my laptop. I moved it from the plastic pot I bought it in to one of my thrifted rose cups… Related […]

Eye Candy | Blue smiling cat

Eye Candy | Blue smiling cat

Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning. Joseph Campbell At a recent visit to a rather cute second hand shop (new to me) I found this blue cat. I adore the 1970-style and shape of it, […]

Eye Candy | Drops of Color

Eye Candy | Drops of Color

No medicine cures what happiness cannot. Gabriel GarcŪ≠a MŠrquez Drops of color in puddles of water, because they sky is too gray and winter too long. I feel like I need a lot of “just because no reason” right now. Sometimes we don’t need a reason, even though our brain constantly tries to convince us […]

Eye Candy | Steampunk Machinery

Eye Candy | Steampunk Machinery

I am not interested in how these machines work, or in learning how to built them or pick them apart. I’m not even into making steampunk craft, but I can not help but to be fascinated by the look of big machines – especially vintage ones in a museum like this. Machines where the details […]

Summer Crush | Broholmer Puppies

Summer Crush | Broholmer Puppies

Eye Candy: Newborn Wool

Eye Candy: Newborn Wool

When visiting Gotland in May I came across these darling cute lambs close to where we were staying. Gotland is known for the many sheep, and in every souvenir boutiques on the island you will find a sheep of some kind in every available form; ceramics, wool, fabric or illustration on something else. But to […]

Eye Candy: Blue and White Anemone

Eye Candy: Blue and White Anemone

The most beautiful sign of spring is the forest spring flowers. In the brown, bare woods tiny white flowers rise their heads in spring. At places, if you’re lucky, they cover the entire ground and makes you think snow has come back… In Gotland this is also true for the Blue Anemone, which is rare […]
