Kids bookshelves

 Isn't this such a cool idea? These bookshelves are extremely accessible for children even the more younger ones. And the beauty of it is they are cheap and accessible. They are infact spice racks from Ikea!

 Check this out too if you're looking for a gift for your child. I found it really inspiring.

Sea urchins and such

 Isn't this sea urchin lamp so beautiful. And that chair is just perfect for hiding away and reading a book.

Chevron power

I can't believe that it's already Friday and that my last entry was on Monday!
 Where, oh where did the time go?  I have been enjoying a lot of your blog posts and I have neglected my own.........Please do forgive me seriously lousy photos :(
 So what have I been doing? You may ask.
 Apart from a lot of day dreaming and other essential tasks I have been ...........painting!
 You know, when you have a thousand things on your hand that you need and should be doing , what do you do? Well if you're like me you get totally distracted and start wondering "How would that boring wall look like with zig zags on it? And then you take it one step further and you grab some paint, a paint brush and masking tape (which you disregard after realising this is going to take you too much time and decide to go free style!!) And you start painting that wall! Before you know it it's done!
                                         Next I might try a rug and then maybe........... the world!!!!!
Have a fun week-end making your dreams become reality even if it is just a bit of chevron :) xx Iris.

 These chairs are so fun. given the classique form but unusual paint colour for the wood work and fabric.
 I'm such a chicken with colour because I know it wont last long and in a week or two I'll want to change and make it more classique!
Which leads me to my chair........... I have had it hanging around in my studio for a while and finally got down to painting and replacing the aged fabric. I tossed around the idea of painting it red, or yellow or hot pink and why not? It would have been fun .......right? Why am I so indecisive?
So here she is. Classical but snazy! Hooray for zebra! That's my idea of safe fantasy :)

 Unusual colour for an old table and chairs all calmed down by grey as a backdrop. Fun!

 Book marks I made with my girls as a momento for the  baptism of my oldest son Zach this week-end. We cut strips of leather ( our old sofa) and with a permanent marker we drew different designs. Quick, original, fun and cheap!!!
