Enna aus Deutschland

I am so excited about the things Illustrator and graphic designer Enna creates, I would almost write this post in German. What an authentic and brilliant style she has! Love the colours and the slight retro touch... You can buy her stuff in her shop called Ennaland in Hannover and through Dawanda.

Etsy Autumn

Since a few days I smell autumn in the air, in my garden and even in my house (pumpkin soup). I checked Etsy on warm woolen and wooden stuff. Here is what I found.

The woolen mushroom and the acorns are needle felted by Lil Fish Studio. Those great Danish looking candle holders come from Jenny Hopscotch Vintage. The other wooden 'thing' is a gorgious 'bird head cup' I found at Nature Design. Handknit Hugs produced those tiny knitted slippers. The larger yellow ones are crotcheted by Caity Jo.

Sit back, relax, turn on the sound and... enjoy this incredible paperworld. Got tears in my eyes, the first time I saw it!

Duckfeet stövlar

Couldn't resist ordering these Duckfeet boots from Denmark. I hope to get them delivered next week!
Totally my cup of tea these 70's models! The boots look great for long walks in the woods behind my house and I think they will match with a basic black dress as well.
Duckfeet shoes and boots are manufactured in Europe already for 30 years with consideration for environment and people.

Interior living fair

Yesterday I went to the annual 'Woonbeurs'. A mainstream and big happening in Amsterdam. Next to the usual kitchen and swimmingpool salesmen, wearing grey suits, there were some treasures as well:

This was their stand on the show. Great fabric design, stationery and other beautiful things. I bought their new wrapping paper.

A company called Weltevree showed some great stoves. My favorite, the Stonestove by Dick van Hoff, was there as well! Made of concrete parts and a timeless beauty, if you ask me. Worth to save money for!

Unfortunately I didn't see any demonstration. But this light object called 'the rithm of light' changes it's colour and intensity by pulling the 'lampshade' down. The density of the weaving changes and makes the light dimm or change the colour a bit. At least, that is what I understood reading Susanne's website. Apart from this great technical story I think this design has something heavenly.
