CUP OF FLOWERS

Since the post last Sunday, I have been wanting to use these little teacups as flowerpots. They are tiny, so I had only room for a couple of muscari. But they turned out really fun and they made for a great photo sessions as well. Wish you all a happy Saturday! /Annika
 
 

FELTED FLOWERS & WOOLLY CHAIRS

I found these cute projects over at Marie Claire Idees. I like the idea of making something you have look a bit more fun or give it a new look. These flowers are made from felt and I think it's such a fun material to work with, since you don't have to finish of the edges. The chair cover is pretty cool too. I like how the fabric gives it a more practical and rough look, than if it were made from a thin, fine material. You'll find the instructions here: 
 
 
Have a productive and inspiring Friday! /Annika
 


TEA CUPS & SCRUFFY KITTENS

This collage is featuring some of my favorite objects, both to photograph and to collect. I have a thing for tea cups and mugs and I enjoy the feeling of having a cup in my hands, how it's shaped, and how it feels to drink from it.
A while back I did a lot of ceramics and I was crazy about making mugs. It was almost a contest with myself to make one cup better than the other. It seemed like the possibilities were endless.
I wouldn't say that I have a huge collection of teacups, it is more one of those objects I feel drawn to when visiting flea markets. That, along with things like little salt and pepper shakers, old illustrated books, beautiful old type & vintage posters.
I'm not really good at buying expensive finds, just because it has become popular. I like to look for odd little things that has no real value, except for its peculiar beauty. Like the scruffy kitten no one wants.
What are your favorite objects to collect?
 
Have an inspiring day! /Annika
 
 

PICTURE COLLECTION PALETTE

Found this gorgeous collection of pictures in the Brown Dress With White Dots tumblr archive. I really love the style of this collection. Have a great Monday! /Annika
 
 

FINDING BEAUTY IN WHAT YOU HAVE

I think you all know the feeling when you look in your overly filled closet, thinking that you have nothing to wear and that you need something new.
Or you got tired of your china collection and don't feel you could stand eating from it ever again. That if you just bought something new....well, you would feel renewed.
 I think that sometimes it's too easy to get rid of what you have and just buy something new. And I'm not just talking about wanting new stuff, but always wanting more, not enjoying what you already have. I know a lot of you really enjoy flea markets and buying old stuff, but I bet you also have a lot of that laying around already, things that are not being used, not being appreciated. 
It does take a bit of effort to always appreciate and use what you have, but I like to think that there is beauty and potential in everything, it just depends on how you look at it. Maybe those old clothes needs a scissor or maybe you could paint you old china? It's all about that particular light you choose to shine on things. Even a grey day can be beautiful...if you want it to be.
 
Have a great Sunday! /Annika
