{ handmade with love }

By Brit

The time has come, today I will open my Etsy store with some of my DIY creations. Summertime has been like fuel for my creative mind. Plenty of ideas are buzzing in my head since a long, long time and now I finally created some of them. It’s a new experience for me, a kind of challenge, something I always wanted to do. Curious ? Sneak a peek: MBB

{ hello, fall }

By Brit

Have you already felt that first chill in the air that whispers of fall ? I always find it so exciting when summer changes to fall, my favorite season. I am in the mood for changing colors, crisp breezes and comforting food with cozy flavors like homemade pumpkin soup, warm scones and hot apple cider. Enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of autumn !

{ ocean memories }

By Brit

Thinking of the end of summer always makes me a little nostalgic but at the same time, I am very excited to welcome fall, my favorite season. So just after coming back home from my ocean trip I created this little collage reflecting three weeks of sweet idleness and serendipities. A perfect ending to a wonderful late summer vacation.

{ surreal fairytale }

By Brit

British artist Katharine Morling is working in the medium of ceramics. Each piece has been given layers of emotion and embedded with stories, which are open for interpretation in the viewer’s mind. When put together, the pieces combine to make a tableau staging the still lives of everyday objects. An original and surreal fairytale experience.

{ flow }

By Brit

I recently discovered the magazine Flow, a magazine for paper lovers with full of ideas, beautiful art work, inspiring stories and fun projects. The magazine is split into four sections, each indicated by a fold-out tab: Feel connected – about family, relationships and the wider world, Live mindfully – about living consciously and being aware of the moment, Spoil yourself – with gadget tips, recipes, inspiration and so on, and Simplify your life – with practical solutions that can make life easier. Leafing through any edition is an experience in itself. Each issue also contains little gifts, such as labels, pennants, postcards, sheets of paper, illustrations to color in and window stickers; a real treasure trove with stunning graphics and beautiful illustrations. The story behind Flow Magazine is quite incredible. Two Dutch journalists were mulling over what kind of magazine they wanted to read, when they realized that such a magazine didn’t exist. So they created it and within just a few years they were reaching several hundred thousand readers, first in the Netherlands and Belgium, then in the rest of Europe and around the world. However, Flow is about more than just paper but a lovely inspiration source of happiness. Have a look inside…
