“My destination is no longer a place, rather a new way of seeing.”
Marcel Proust

 

… grey tones in combination with pink, the different textures of velvet, rocks, ceramic art
and the amazing art of KOURPOUR

Lovely jewelry made in coastal California.

Each piece is handmade. The artist Jen Goff uses traditional craft techniques like weaving, ropemaking and braiding and combines these with natural dyed fibers and hand-hammered metals. I’m really intrigued by the mix of the different textures, the golden hues and the combination of metal and fibers.

What I love this month:

Say less, listen more.
Work less, sleep more.
Judge less, love more.

ON MY RADAR – 1’17

What I love this month:

a brand new year with lots of new goals and ideas!

I know there is snow on the ground at the moment,
but I’m thinking of the time I visited Arizona – thinking of the desert, cowboy boots and hats, cacti and adventures.

a walk in winter wonderland

Here are some impressions from the walk I took in the frozen and very quiet landscape yesterday.
Every time I’m in nature I’m fascinated by it and so inspired.
Mother nature is the best designer. There is so much beauty and magic and wonder.
Just as Ansel Adams said:

“I believe the world is incomprehensibly beautiful — an endless prospect of magic and wonder.”

With each New Year we get a fresh, clean page to start over.

Here’s hoping that life writes a beautiful new chapter for you this year.

Happy New Year!

Actually what I need right now:
the calm and reserved interior of the museums exhibition space;
amazing, inspiring art and the thought that art and creativity matters
