journalevery day {6}

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

at the moment, every day feels like a party to me. refreshing, thrilling, and yet terribly exhausting. but I’m happy.

and in my world, being happy is the one way to go.

Guillaume and I are somewhat settled now. we love our flat, right in the heart of Notting Hill. we already have our favourite pub that makes the best food ever, and serves some damn spicy bloody mary.

instant love.

I also found a job which I really like although it’s far from what I’m used to. think patisserie for rainbow little ponies. the team I work with is fantastic, and I can’t help but feel happy when I walk back home with my fingers stained from touching blue food colouring.

although most of the day got spent on stuff-packing (yes, we are finally moving to London – like TOMORROW) – which I don’t particularly enjoy (and that’s and understatement) – we had the best surprises.

a new member of the family. please welcome Mister Peanut, possibly the sweetest bunny ever.

a gorgeous poster sent all the way from Sweden. oh yes, that one, made by Elisabeth for Studio Violet.

a pretty pile of lost polaroid pictures that will go straight onto our Kensington-flat naked walls.

a white guirlande, for the tree we’re planning on buying tomorrow night. any tips for buying Christmas trees in London? please.

an amazing one-colour-a-month Moleskine daily diary. I just can’t wait for 2010 to begin! let’s not rush though.

hope you had lovely surprises too on this Friday that marks a new beginning for me. I might not be able to post for a while, but I’ll make sure to think about you every day.

food, handmade, journalaujourd’hui {one}

today

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

today’s to-do list makes me feel happy.

one. make soft trees (picture by Shanna Murray) using this perfect pattern. I’m thinking of a combination of white, cream, brown and red.

two. make cookies (picture by Heidi Swanson). perhaps with pumpkin, a touch of cinnamon and crushed daims. yum!

three. finish the fabric garland I started a year ago. I want it huge so I can hang it on the ceiling of our new flat.

inspiration, journalone week {3}

in exactly one week, we’ll be sleeping in our new flat. in London. right now, we’re more excited than jumping bunnies.

the fact that Christmas is around might have something to do with it as well. in fact, we’ve already planned to rush to a Christmas tree patch and get one, on the day we arrive.

it will have handmade ornaments like a paper garland, frosted cinnamon biscuits, and wool pompoms.

I went away for a long time. apparently. and I missed it here. sure I still collected pretty images on my much-loved tumblr blog, but things just don’t seem right when I don’t post here.

but now I’m back – at least for today – with a different kind of post. and trust me, it’s pretty hard for the uniformity-freak that I am not to style this the same way I usually do. I guess the fact that I’m slightly tired with a cold and probably an emotionnal wreck from a recent break-up might have to do with this sudden routine-bashing.
edit: so hard in fact that I had to change the way it looked. I might be healing faster that I thought I would (I totally went against my maniac-ness though. nine images; not ten. big huge step!).

lately, I’ve felt overly inspired, and in need for constant inspiration. here is my top nine, in random order.
