New bags

I've made some new bags. This one is made from an old curtain. It's a quick and easy reversable tote.
The horse embrodery is one of my thrifting finds. The bag is made for a friend who loves horses. It's a big bag that fits both a binder and a laptop.
The pattern is from the book Hånd i hanke by Anne-Pia Godske Rasmussen.

Boys toys

A friend came by last night to show us his veteran Porsche that he's been working on all winter. It's a 911 from 1976. He took my boys for a ride, and they where thrilled.

I did a little bit of thrifting today, and found these ugly stools. With some sanding, a can of spraypaint and som leftover oilcloth they turned out quite nice.

Yellow jugs

From an antique store in Grasse. This reminded me of my own collection of yellow mugs, stored in my attic somewhere.

The reason for my absence

The reason for not blogging for a while is a trip to France. This picture is from my absolute favourite place, La Brave. It's an old mas provençal (french farmhouse) in Vaucluce where we've spent many lovly vacations.
