1050 bruxelles

we went to brussels yesterday and discovered some nice adresses.
like "le typographe" (paperworks, online magazine here).
bought this "papier d'armenie", little rose sented paper which you have to burn to get rid off dirty odors (let you know how it worked out)
we had lunch in "l'epicerie, cuisine du marché" (66, rue du page), they serve just one plate a day, we had a delicious lasagna.
treated myself with a silver ring (forgot the shop's name, but it's also in rue du page)
finally got to see "little circus", a cute children's shop. they are also in paumes' "belgium family style" and they sell lots of other paumes books. check their blog!
more beautiful shops: "rose" an "boucle d'or"
before getting on the train again, we ended at "lilicup" with coffee and cupcake.

we love the brilliant, yet simple and functional design of this Stockholm based studio.
especially the sketch lamp, a desk lamp that doubles as a light box
how cool is that!

favorite thing : a pendant lamp in which you can expose your own treasures

platevase : round porcelain vase with a double serving plate, nifty!

panholders as art

panholders, we love them.
and we make our own as you can see in the pictures above.
ana tuominen used flea market panholders to make art, good inspiration!
take a look at her other work, we like it.
