Heart warming

Heart warming by Tuttebel
Heart warming, a photo by Tuttebel on Flickr.

My favourite thing to spend time on the internet is looking at all the cuteness on Flickr. Arts, crafts, homes, thrift shop finds. I just love it ! And helps me to keep balance in this to me confusing world. So much beauty and love to be found for those who still can see it. And thanks to all who share it!

You can click on the photo and visit the photo sets of the makers if you want to see more eye candy. Have a cosy weekend with lots of love and beauty.

I like the word gray more than grey. It sounds more adequate to me. Darker.

The little doll, just 17 cm tall is just cute and cuddly :)

Yohji Yamamoto: The poet of black

Yohji Yamamoto: The poet of black / Fashion / People / V&A Channel

The Victoria and Albert museum in London has the best website. It's a true treasure trove for people on a very low travel budget, like me :) "Beautiful things are disappearing every day. Look at them, keep at them, be careful, don't go to fast, look back."- Yohji Yamamoto.

Magic forest friends

Tonight is the start of T. en P.'s autumn holidays.No school or work for a week :)

We hope for sunny walks, planned a dvd lord of the rings marathon with friends (T), visit Primark in Liege, bake a chocolate cake, watch Merlin together, maybe visit a open day at a university. Make pumpkin soup and just enjoy freedom. And I'm pretty sure we'll have some pyjama days.
I will be offline and I will take my clock and eye plant to an art event the last weekend.

Wish you happy times to!

Making stamps is easy as one - two - three.

2. Lay your drawing on the eraser.
3. Rub over paper with your pencil.

Cut out the white and ready!

Happy weekend xxx

Eraser stamps by Tuttebel
Eraser stamps, a photo by Tuttebel on Flickr.

I feel a bit spaced out, had a lot of tooth pain lately. Visited my dentist a lot. That's ok with me, it's a nice guy and at the end the f**.. pain is gone.

I try to relax in the chair by singing songs in my head. Favourite are songs from the Rocky Horror show. "When Eddie said, he didn't like his ted, you know he was a no good kid....". That helps really!, if things get evil I think of steamy windows :)
What's your trick to relax in the dentist chair?

Made some stamps from erasers, and that helped a lot to heal the soul and my gums.

Happy pain free times!

Deep Sea days

Deep Sea days by Tuttebel
Deep Sea days, a photo by Tuttebel on Flickr.

Play with a photo of my work.

Dark, you say?
These days happen, just like that.
Slowly the colours fade, my world turns black.
Fear is master.

The secret is to sink a little bit more, the best treasures lay deep down at the bottom of the deep sea...

New friends and mostly good times in the studio. I'm still working on my MollyMorpheus Etsy store. Having problems with my new bank account and paypal. In the end it all will work but for now it's the mail ping-pong game.
Keep calm and carry on :)

Dream Guardian Poem

Dream Guardian Poem by Tuttebel
Dream Guardian Poem, a photo by Tuttebel on Flickr.

Last days of summer vacation, and a load of good things to do. Busy as a bee.
So many beautiful flowers to visit, honey to make and love to celebrate :)

Internet feels like a to big time consumer these days, so I'll take a few steps back.
And leave you with this poem.

I'll show you the rest of this later :)
May your dreams come true

Love Elisa

Thoughts about Mythology Bjork - Live & Interview - Unravel

Mythology is deeply personal and skin deep to me.
By listening to songs for Drella by Lou Reed and John Cale made me think it was for Andy to.
Listen to what Bjork has to say and enjoy her beautiful song.

Dream away

Hugo is my soul mate, he dreams about being an artist and live in a wood house in the Alps. Far far away from the busy world.

I'll love to join him and knit the whole day. For now I'm still busy setting up the shop.

Play time for Fifi and Eloise, a photo by Tuttebel on Flickr.

To make a decent product photo is not so easy. We are having a lot of rain and darkness these days.
But I've learned some tricks of the trade and a 1960's filter is just perfect for my mood.

Focus on the bright side of life!

La Droguerie Rennes

Crafters paradise by Tuttebel
Crafters paradise, a photo by Tuttebel on Flickr.

This shop was high on my wish list of things to see in Brittany. It's a true crafters paradise. I could have easily spend a whole day looking at all the lovely things. Romantic fabrics and so much beads, buttons, wool, bias bands all in nice colours. The staff was super friendly and even spoke english! There are 10 La Droguerie shops in France. Wish there was one in Maastricht!

And the book La Deco des Parisiennes is so dreamy, most girls that show their petits appartements are artist and creatices.

Happy me!
Have a nice weekend my dear readers!

Best shop in the world!

Inspiration :)

Had to bake a tray full of Madelines to make them pose for me. It's a bit of a posh tribe this one, they sure love to keep their grey noses up in the air.

Let me introduce them to you;

Paper moon

It's portrait week :) Not so easy to create the image I love. Smart teacher, to start with self portraits. So hard to step in front of the lens. Still try to hide.
It's really inspirational to struggle with this.
I must admit I dream about a secret garden to play in.
