cowboyslang

Typedesigner Hannes von Döhren is a busy bee, he created a great variation of fonts.
We are fond of this one, Cowboyslang, a display typefamily with a Wild West flair.
It consists of three widths plus fitting ornaments.

turn turn turn

I like the way the boy makes the girl go around and around... she only dances when he comes too close.


And I like the helicopters' propellor turning...only when the sun is shining

Piperoid is produced in Japan.
A simple, yet great idea: you have to assemble paper pipes into a robot without glue...

birthday trip

Yesterday: three girls and three bicycles in a van up to Holland.
First we went to Combitex, then Amsterdam.
We had lunch here.
The notebook was a present. It's from Orla Kiely.
We visited lots of nice shops near central station as Pappa bubble (personalised candy), Restored (bought a beautiful brooche there), &klevering en Het grote avontuur (gifts).
Then we cycled to KNSM island for Pol's potten and Sissy Boy homeland.
In the evening, we took a free ferry to a restaurant called 'Hotel De Goudfazant' (btw, it's not a hotel).

time warp

When you visit Ostel Berlin, you feel like entering an authentic East-Berlin interior.
The building is as communist as it gets, it is situated nearby the longest stroke of Berlin Wall still standing and the rates are fair!
What more do you want?
Let's leave for Berlin :-)

lazy weekend

Since we had no plans for the weekend, I booked a night at L'empreinte du temps, a small hotel in Torgny (one of the most beautiful villages in the south of Belgium).
It was good (and so was their restaurant), and yes, the village was beautiful.
Today we discovered a flea market in Muno, near France. That's where I saw this box of sewing stuff.
