This & that

I thought I’d share some art that has inspired me recently. I came across this fantastic site the other day, featuring absolutely to-die-for Art Deco prints. This one is by George Barbier. Telefon Tel Aviv, whose music I enjoy immensely, has a particularly stylish website. You can listen to whole tracks at the “listening station” and “discography”. I only found this artist recently although I guess they’ve been around for… Read more


Goodness me, I’ve been tagged by Kathleen! Five is supposed to be my lucky number, so let’s see how I can manage this… Five minutes to yourself: Well, it seems that almost every time I leave the house for work or whatever, I’m just about five minutes late and end up putting on my lipstick or earrings in the tram or elevator.

In the summer of 1990 us girls (me and my best friend M)… Read more

How fantastic to read such encouraging words, thank’s a million Tiffini! Her work is amazing, by the way. I’ve been thinking that I’d like to order an optical lens necklace from her at some… Read more

So, I’ve finally started my very own blog! Wow, I’m still a bit confused! I must say, I had some serious doubts about this… First of all, I’m rather useless with computers, so it took a while to find a place where blogging is as easy as here at WordPress. Also, for a long time I felt that keeping a journal online was quite absurd. Writing down my thoughts and… Read more
