After the exhibition, in the train on the way back, we started
to compare each others pictures we had taken in the
museum; many of the photos had a clear Braeckman
influence, so we started giggling and joking and decided to manipulate
some of the pictures in a Braeckman-way and make an additional
Braeckman inspired post :^)
The first and bottom pic were taken in the museum M, the
middle picture is my mom on the right, our neighbor Jen in
the middle and her sister in-laws José on the left.
I would just mention that Jen, our neighbor had the airs of a diva,
as if she were Ava Gardner playing a housewife and as a child
I really liked her long tanned legs :^)
My mom was wearing nylons.
Have a look at Mieke's creations too.
Ok, this is the last post for this year :)
I wish you all a very nice and creative 2012!!

My nephew Julian was born on Christmas Eve, and last
weekend we celebrated his birthday;
four candles to blow out this time, and the little guy seemed
very focussed before going into action :^)
Hope everyone had a nice Christmas too.
All photos taken by my niece Jasperine.

I think I have never been so happy with an apartment
as with my current one, as if it were designed specially for me;
that is of course nonsense, but I do know that this place
inspires and that I'm in my element here, what is very,
very important for a Cancer, ha!
Some time ago, a friend of mine made this funny joke about me,
my home & blog, saying:
'Your home is like a shell with an internet connection' :^)
Anyway, I'm a (modern) hermit and I love My Shell!
new cushion, have a look at my flickr for the back.

I haven't had any chance to take some pictures last week,

'Gardening & Accessories' and the photos date from
1 cherry tomato, own cultivation :^)
2 gardening dreamsuit, found at vads
3 sage, grasses and Siberian Edelweiss.
4 love gardening at night

I've tried to make some sharper photos from the 'Land of Rivers'
embroiderie; the result is quite better now but not yet Sharp sharp,
and I've noticed a bit too late that there was a grease stain on the lens,
so there's a blurry spot at the top of the work
and therefore, the isolated red house seems to be shrouded in a fog bank,
how poetic :^)

Have a nice weekend all!

I started a whole bunch of cushions the last two months,
partly for Huis Mortier and Atelier Solarshop, but
many of them didn't make it, like this cushion that only
needs a lining; but I think that's not so bad, since I already have
noticed that many of you prefer the back :^)
sweet dreams :^)

I went for a short walk in the park nearby; love to watch
the ducks in the water, especially the idea they're comfortable
warm and dry while paddling is very appealing to me :^)
The fallen leaves of the Wisteria give nice patterns on the terrace
they remind me a bit of a design I once made for a textile print.
... but it could also be a bunch of stylized spermatozoits :^)
Happy weekend all!
