I have been walking around Stockholm this summer. The city was warm, sweet and delicious. Here’s the evidence as seen through my eyes (and phone).
I have been to Sweden quite a few times over the years (I have relatives and many friends over there), but it never gets old. The cute buildings, the pastel palette, the beautiful Swedes with their cool and impeccable sense of style, gorgeous design everywhere, the seafood, the fresh air coming from the islands… I could go on forever. Stockholm is a very interesting and very exciting city. Looking back, I actually think that one of the reasons why I loved Hamburg so much was because it reminded me of Stockholm. Either way, totally worth a visit. I recommend it!
Lots of love,
A few days ago I started painting a little Victorian house.
These houses are everywhere in England. They look so cute, with their red bricks, chimneys and tamed gardens… Bigger versions of doll houses, really. I never get tired of looking at them.
A few days after I completed this painting, I finally opened my first Etsy shop! I have been talking about it for a while and it’s finally happened! I can’t believe it has taken me such a long time to do this. I have loved Etsy for YEARS… It’s all done now and I am incredibly excited. To celebrate, I decided to list this piece for sale at a special price. It’s a one-off, watercolour original, signed by the artist (me!).
I think it looks cute on a white frame, wouldn’t you agree? It’s the kind of “happy illustration” that I love producing. If you like it, you can purchase it here.
I have a couple of other things in the shop too, take a look! It’s still early days so bear with me. I am stocking up on A LOT of goodies!
Lots of love,
Just a little collection of some of the cool stuff I see every time I look up at the sky.
The Flatiron: definitely my favorite building in the city. I can’t help smiling every time I look at it. It’s so gorgeous.
The stairs to my apartment. Very “Rosemary’s baby” inspired. I love it.
Amazing murals at the Rockefeller Center.
Oh, the Chrysler… Yeah, I lied, THIS is my favorite building in the city. I can see it from my house.
Williamsburg bridge, Brooklyn.
New York is tall, stunning and endless. A good pair of shades and a strong upper body is definitely a must.
Lots of love from the East Village.
Oscar Niemeyer is 103 years old today. He’s still working and exercising his genius mind. How absolutely inspiring, don’t you think?
