Passing by

Dreaming of glass

Look at this.

Glass.

Most of you would have passed by a junkyard filled with glass like this. My radar, however, starts beeping out of control. My head explodes. My camera takes a thousand pictures. One of my favourite hidden gems in London.


I’ve passed this little glass-collection – on the corner of Middleton Road and Haggerston Road – many a time when I was in London. Every time my heart pumps faster. Skipping beats. As though in love. It’s a combination of the colours and structures of the glass and the abandoned atmosphere of scenery. The few little flowers breaking through the concrete walls. The note on the door. The owner never reached.

Just gorgeous.

I can spend a whole hour watching, peeking over the wall. Always.
Incomprehensible to you, maybe. I understand that.
It’s probably just glass for you. Just someone who forgot he ran a business. Just what looks like glass bathtubs.
Nothing special.


I think it’s mesmerizing. Not damaged goods. And I won’t stop looking at it. Until the owner sells the place.
I hope Haggerston – or whatever London council the glass garden belongs to – can see the value of this beautiful spot.
Preserve it. For the greater good and the dreamers’ hearts! I know I would…

Fulfilling

I received some lovely pictures from Australia! A few weeks back someone ordered two Christmas cards through Etsy and asked me to write and send them to two lovely boys. And they arrived! Look at the result…

That’s heart-warming… Very well done Lewis! And exactly what I hoped my cards would trigger (whether you’re 8 or 80). Happy me!

And, as if my day couldn’t have started any better already after the beautiful pictures from Australia, I also got promoted on Instagram via @AAApromotion. They featured my Christmas tree!

What a day… I’m content and I’m gonna share this feeling of contentment with you. If you still haven’t found the time to write your Nan, lover or lovely niece and nephew a Christmas card – and I know the thought is nagging! – you’re at the right address. I absolutely LOVE writing and sending the card for you. The thought that you can sit back and relax and have yourself a Merry Little Christmas, is so fulfilling to me. So, as Christmas is approaching real fast, just place your order with the address and text before December 20th and I will do the rest!

A yellow conclusion

This was September, my yellow month. And yellow was everywhere! Because I focused and because yellow catches attention.

Not my colour, but my friend Annie can sport light yellow like no one does!

I won’t be moving into a yellow submarine just yet, but during this month my affection for this colour has grown. And although the light and pastel version of yellow still doesn’t really do it for me (but that is taste and the pastel yellow making me look like a sheet), I didn’t realise until now that yellow actually brightens up my mood. A lot!

Yellow picture mixture

Picture mixture: this whole month I’ve been collecting yellow inspiration.

The colour is summery and optimistic and is said to be good for inspiration and concentration – always handy. Maybe that’s why I feel like I need more yellow indoors. To be more precise, I feel as though it may pull me through the dark Winter months, may help me in finding a balance and so in dealing with depression. I wonder if that’s because it’s such a vibrant colour? Does it reflect more light?

If so, I might just paint one of my walls a bright egg yolk yellow to get me through another Autumn blues! Or I could just start with getting that bike, including balloon, and put that up my wall.

And when I’m all grown up I want a bathroom with a yellow floor. Or a minty-green bathroom with a yellow bath. Via Marie-Claire.

But then this bright yellow! And thanks for image used - found it in my inspiration folder!
