{ strange & storytelling creatures }

By Brit

Inspired by nature and British folklore, Mr Finch creates strange and magical creatures out of of upcycled material:  Velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress and a vintage apron become birds and beasts, looking for new owners and adventures to have. His creations are part whimsy part true to form, all hand stitched with intricate detailing and made for people who are also a little lost, found and forgotten…

{ between the years }

By Brit

I love this time of year, the time between Christmas and New Year that Norwegians call Romjul. These days are some form of strange vortex where even time itself seems to be operating at a different yet contemplative pace. Something special and magical is in the air. Can you feel it ?

{ embroidered universe }

By Brit

Aurélie Mathigot’s work is largely inspired by the notion of recovery and the necessity of talking about everyday life in another – new – way. Several preoccupations recur throughout her work: like the will to hide, the need for isolation and for being overwhelmed by the textil material. Like an endless thinking about time flowing, out of anyone’s control. Like the desire to fix reality in another dimension to preserve it from leaving us, and to look in all things, by all means, what can remind us a present.

{ 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.
