//Wisteria Lane//

We have an amazing alley close to us where the Wisteria blooms so beautifully. I naturally dragged one of my (reluctant) models with me and we loved it there. The scent of the blooms were almost intoxicating and the hue of the flowers stunning. We had our own little Wisteria lane moment.
Hope you had a lovely long Bank holiday weekend. We have a bit of sunshine now and again, but I must admit it has been one of the coldest months of May I can remember. Happy Tuesday folks.

Spring in the kitchen

Today I have a quite serious wall obsession, and really fancy owning an old house with amazing walls like these. I am also rather fond of the styling, and the lovely vintage stuff in these images from Ikea Livat Hemma. It is clear that I need to be going to some more flea markets, to find antique looking things like these = what's not to like about that.

Happy Happy weekend folks, I would like to ask if any of you have seen the sun, and in that case could you send it our way - it's freezing here ;-)

Flower explosion

Those of you who know me, also know how fascinated I am with abandoned buildings and flowers. Well wasn't I in such when I stumbled upon the work of flower designer Lisa Waud. She bought 2 abandoned houses in Detroit for 500$, and the idea was to turn them into an art installation, but the idea kept growing, and is in Lisa's own words: 

“It’s a story in three parts: a house filled with flowers for one fall weekend, a deconstruction project partnering with a local company called Reclaim Detroit to reuse up to 75% of the materials in the structures, and the launching of an urban flower farm for my floral design company, pot & box”






I think it is safe to say that I am totally in love with everthing going on in these pictures. Detroit has many abandoned houses - remember this post, so I am delighted to see that someone is utilising and making use of these old derelict places. It's almost poetic that they get a new lease of life, and such a beautiful one as well. 

What do you think?? Isn't this something else.
Happy Wednesday my friends.
