Let’s go!

Unnecessary ramblings aside, it’s time for a new blog! I reckon this will be a series of notes in the form of “whatever works to currently inspire, entchant and nourish the mind, heart and hands of Fine van Brooklin“. Welcome along!

Shopgirl

Well! One week of having my own little pop up shop behind me and two more to go! Thanks so much to everyone who has come over so far, it has truly been a most exquisite pleasure!!! I’ve enjoyed spending time at the Korjaamo culture center immensely. The place has undergone a major renovation during the summer months and has really broken out of its shell now. I really hope… Read more

Sincerely Yours

Dear Blog, I’m so sorry for the long silence. I feel bad for deserting you for such a long time, since you’re my oldest online friend. Rest assured that I’ve been thinking about you every day and have never ever really let you go. Jubilee/burgundy ribbon Dear bloggy, I’ve been so busy. My life has changed so much this year. I’m all over the place now with my Facebook page,… Read more

Jubilee

It took me a while to make up my mind on what to do with these vintage chandelier chrystals that I purchased from a funny little bric-a-brac shop (the owner prefers to call it an installation and to be honest that describes it even better) in Stockholm’s Old Town last year. The chrystals are obviously sensitive to rough wear so as much as I would have loved to see one… Read more

Hands of Time

Naturally the hands of time are turning every second but there are moments when some turns are heavier than others.  I’m about to go through a major change in my life this week.

Berlin

What can I say? I’ll try to come up with something. Five intensive days in Berlin last week have left me awestruck. On top of it all, since we got back late Thursday evening I haven’t even left the apartment because I got ill almost straight away! So, I’ve just been dwelling in the memories and in my feverish dreams I’ve been walking the streets of Berlin over and over… Read more

It’s about time

Vacation time! I’m super excited since I’ll be off to Berlin for the next few days. I’ll leave you with a couple of Fine van Brooklin “classics” in the shape of Baroque Nouveau… Baroque Nouveau necklace in black. Detail view here.
