late Monday night, but still Monday
to share with you some bits and pieces of last week
be aware : I made quite a lot of collages today
parking lot in Toronto, dropped a box of mini cupcakes that were nevertheless delicious
the backorder of yarn that came in to complete my Catania collection
a beautiful tile floor on Toronto, edited with the symmetry app
yarn set for sale in the creJJtion shop to create the Miami Beach blanket
blue skies on the way, 'asphalt is the new water'
and I successfully baked cupcakes with the kids that I teach Dutch over the summer
my favorite Jasmine pearl tea and my favorite view on Lake Ontario that I know
dreaming of a beautiful home and found some plastic spoons on super sale in Anthropologie
more views on the lake and in Anthropologie
below left a fifties secretary desk the husband found on the street, painted in Farrow&Ball Hague Blue
clearly this paint looks about 5 tones lighter when wet ~ can you imagine my 'eeek' when I opened the can?!
it turns out beautiful though when dry, more about that later
of course I spent quite some time again working on the pretty crochet blanket ~ it is such joy to work with
I found a hard copy of the Uppercase Magazine, Canadian made and oh so beautiful
lovely articles on crafty people, new refreshing ideas, and shops
I shared a homemade latte and our last Dutch stroopwafels with a dear Danish friend who lives in Canada
besides painting the desk, I am also trying to create a studio in the basement of our house
it is about 50 square meters, is nice and cool in the summer and warm in the winter
there are two 'but's
one, there is only one window
second, the basement is unfinished ~ floors and walls are bare concrete, ceilings are open
to overcome both, I asked and got permission from the homeowner to paint the floor white
amazing what a roller and two gallons of white epoxy paint can do...
more about the basement studio later
I definitely have a few exciting projects on the go if you ask me, I will share more soon
wishing you a lovely new week!
