..Crane bird..

The crane is a symbol of happiness and eternal youth, if you fold a thousand origami cranes you will be granted a wish by a crane according to an ancient Japanese legend.

Lately I received different cranes. 
One folded of old book paper, which is hanging nicely on a neon pink string (so still a thousand to fold).
And new crane embroidery scissors, they are perfect for cutting my threads.
Bought them at the wonderful shop of Ganiveteria Roca in the centre of Barcelona.

..CERAMIK Justyna Łodzińska..

Recently I found out that one of my colleague's has a sister who makes beautiful ceramics. So I asked him if he could bring me some plates when he went back home to Poland so I can share them as gifts with friends. I especially liked  these plates that have doilies imprinted in them which creates a nice three dimensional effect.
Justyna Łodzińska has a website, which only is in Polish unfortunately, which is a hard language to understand as a foreigner. But I am sure you can contact her for information. Because these plates can't go unnoticed!


Our boys room, they are sharing a room, is already in need for some changes.
Even big changes, every boy a room of their own is the question?
So we are contemplating who to sleep and play where.
I have been trying out pinterest to get some images together for the rooms.


What it is like to be 40?

.. A.B.C.D.E.F.G..HOLA..

HOLA, let me introduce Raquel Vela.

She has been featured in this blog showing her wonderful home in the Eixample in Barcelona.
Next to being a gifted landscape architect, she also makes beautiful drawings.

She works as a illustrator and has made this animal abecedary, for now in Catalan. Which is nice for me because we educate our children in two languages, Dutch and Catalan. But even if you do not speak the language the alphabet invites to make words.

So, if you like her illustrations you can say HOLA to her here.
