Dream


For more than 10 years now I sometimes search the internet for an Eames seafoam armshell.
I have always loved the designs of Ray and Charles Eames. Especially their vintage shells with fibers.
This so called seafoam colour is my fav colour. And it would fit in so nicely with our interior.
Today we have been sitting in this chair for the first time. For just a brief moment I almost hoped for a disillusion so I could put this chair to the back of my mind but this chair is really comfortable for the both of us. There is just one big obstacle left........................
so I am looking for a sponsor now :)

Jumping Kenders

 The kenderman (X-man) jumped out of his crocs.

"Jumping" kenderfrau is definitely from the seventies.
This photo looks more like a pose from Saterday Night Fever :)
The photographer was too late (too early according to himself) taking the actual jumping shot.

Harley Days

This afternoon we bumped into the Harley Days in Leopoldsburg.







Better to burnout than to fade away.

This tough "hardcore" biker seems a bit emotional :)

Two Owls



 Today we spotted two little owls!

 Here an older close-up.

This is the deserted farm house where the little owls live.
Me and the kenderman would like to live here too......... after some renovation work :)

These photo's were taken in the neighbourhood we used to live.
Besides our (nr 10) neighbours we miss the swifts.
You can read my previous blogpost about the swifts here.

Feast

Last week my "sister" invited us for dinner.
She's the greatest cook ever! My favourite Kurdish dish is Japrag.
If she would ever start a restaurant I would go there at least once a week.
So last saturday we went overthere and had a great time with close friends/family and delicious food.

Yesterday I ate Japrag again because the night before we took some Japrag home :)
This is just my plate. The kenderman was carrying his plate.
Normally I don't eat this much........ but this dish is so good!

Styled Fern



Today I bought myself a new ceramic piece by Dik Scheepers.
I went shopping with Climber Boy and we visited Dutch Design Year.
I thought this piece would be perfect for my little fern and..............I think I was right :)
You can see  my other ceramic piece from Dik here.

Sculptures

I love this sculpture!

 This sculpture has wings and a tail like a dragon.
Due to some serious damage the head has been recently replaced.

This one is much more plain.
No spines on his tail and his wings look more like beetle wings.

For the first time we have been growing our own potatoes.
We have two varieties of potatoes.
Vitelotte and ..... I don't remember the other name :)

Giant





This giant, placed in the city centre of Utrecht, caught my eye.
 My brother told me the story about Russell's teapot or the Celestial Teapot later that day.
Now I like it even more :)

Perfect Day




Today we went to Utrecht.
Yesterday it was my baby brother's birthday.
He's so much taller than me but he'll always be my baby brother :) 
Today we lunched together and I really enjoyed it.
Life can be so good!
