Give me a rug

Oh, how I dream of spring! Unfortunately there's another cold front coming our way. But I bet I would care less if I could keep my feet warm on one of the following shag rugs.

By a long chalk

One of my new year resolutions was to try and do illustration sketches on a daily basis. As so many resolutions, I haven't been able to keep it up. Every day just seems to be impossible.

But I've been wondering if a chalkboard wall could be the solution. If I would have one in the kitchen, I could doodle on it while cooking or – very anti social – while eating. It would feel like being a kid again. And if my inner child doesn't feel up to the challenge, I could still use it for grocery lists. Or love notes :)

Not so blue

Since this week featured the most depressing day of the year, I thought it was time for some colourful photos to cheer us up.

The office: officePOD

For all you lucky ones working from home, here is a nice way get away from all life's little distractions: the officePOD.

I woudn't mind to emerge from one of these at six o'clock, take a brisk walk to the house, open the door and call out: "honey, I'm home!" Ah, and so the daydreaming continues...

Fluffed up

One of these eternal misunderstandings between men and women involve cushions.

Men just don't get why we woman can, – even tough we have zillions cushions at home – still hold up new designs during every shopping trip and ask them "what do you think of this one?".

For all my readers of the other sex, it is in fact really simple. We women like a bit of change now and then and a fast an inexpensive way to do this is by adding new details to our interior like – indeed – cushions.

So next time we pop the question, just be glad we're thinking about changing the cushions of the couch and not the guy sitting on it.

Etsy favs: Kup Kup Land

I'm a bit of a daydreamer, so the wonderful imaginary world of Kup Kup land is just my cup of tea.

On a wire

I'm not 100% sure they're very comfortable but lately I've been swooning over wire chairs.

To stuff or not to stuff

Let me introduce you with a litle dillema of mine: I'm a big animal fan but still I have a morbid fascination with stuffed animals.

On the one hand I'm against any cruelty towards animals but on the other hand I do eat meat and wear leather. But are stuffed animals a step too far? I guess there is a diferentation between just killing an animal to make a trophy out of it, or having a beloved pet immortalized. Although the latter also gives me the creeps.

But even tough I like the look of stuffed animals, I think that in their vicinity, I wouldn't feel quite comfortable and would soon begin to think that their little beady eyes were watching me.

So what do you think? Taxidermy, yay or nay?

Reading corner

Alas, the first working day of the new year has begun. I'm still a bit groggy of the early rise and not quite in working mode just yet.

I think I'll daydream a bit about the recent holidays. How did you spent yours? Mine were filled with the obvious: parties, family, friends, champagne and way too much food. But whenever I had time, I sneaked off to read and I'm hapilly to report that I've finished 'The angel's game' by Carlos Luiz Zafron. I must say I absolutely loved it, I really must try to visit Barcelona in 2010.

Haven't read the book? Get inspired by the following reading nooks, get your hands on a copy and get swept away by this page-turning story.
