See You Next Year...

I hope I'm not ruining the holiday spirit that someone might still have by telling that today I'm going to take down all my christmas decorations. Well, there really isn't much to do because this year the decorating has been very minimal. Less is more I think... So, all my beautiful baubles and other ornaments, I'll see you again next year!

For all my christmas decorations it would be nice to have one big storage box with ornament trays. Something similar to the ones that The Container Store sells.

Christmas Greetings!

Only one night left before Santa comes so it`s time to turn the holiday mood on... There´s no snow on the ground so I hope Santa has wheels in his sleigh so that everyone can get their presents. I`ll be back in a few days, but before I go, I want to wish all of you a very merry Christmas!

Slide Show

It must be more than few years now, when I first came across this Slide Light by SUCK UK 2000. Now I found it again and this time from the SUCK UK´s own website. I have to admit that I had forgotten it already, but nevertheless I think it is still kinda cool way to display those artistic snaps of your family, friends, holidays etc.

Bright Light!

Have you seen the new bright light designed by Eero Aarnio?! Innosol Origo is a beautiful design bright light that can be used as a cosy interior lamp outside the bright light therapy season, thanks to its dimmer. The entire lamp shade is of flexible and durable plastic (of course) giving an effective, globally dispersed light.

Snow Globes

Miniaturized scene with miniaturized people inside the glass globe... There is something magical in the Snow Globes by Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz. A bizarre fairytales trapped in snow globes. Incredible art pieces I would say...

Memory Lane...

I´m an 80`s kid. I spent my time watching My Little Pony, Care Bears, Dr. Snuggles and all those cool cartoons from TV. Now I can make a trip down memory lane just by ordering this book from Urban Outfitters...
