collections

Thrifted.

3/24/2011


I'm a collector of many small things, especially old packaging. A while ago I started to collect matchboxes after I got inspired by some images. I love the labels on them and I hope my collection will grow much more though there not so easy to find.

Two amazing Flickr photo-sets of vintage matchbox labels here and here. Maybe one day I will find some of these.

(If you want to help extend my little collection you can always contact me)

A suitcase full of cats.

Last weekend there was a big thrift fair in the neighborhood. Found a couple of beautiful old suitcases that are going to be used for storage. I wonder where they traveled to in a past live.
The cats like them as much as I do.

letter

Mailbox treasures.

3/11/2011




I love to send and receive mail, they are like little treasures. So I thought it would be fun to share my incoming and outgoing mail. The postcards you see are some of my favorites I received through postcrossing. I will show you some more in the future.

Spring is coming soon and the weather is finally changing. Though it's still a little chilly outside, me and H. made a long walk in the city yesterday. I love making walks on Sunday, especially in the morning, when everything in the city is quiet and peaceful.

A lovely song to listen to.

collage

Something different.

3/04/2011




No illustrations but something different. I waste so much of my time browsing on
Flickr, watching old adds and vintage family pictures. So I made a few digital collage works. I had so much fun making these and maybe more of them will follow in the future (if you like them?).

Have a nice weekend!
