Danish textile designer Mai Plank behind Plankdesign has´s just launched her first collection of cushions in various sizes and colour combinations and coffee- and tea cosies. I really like her fresh colour combinations with a touch of retro - and think they fit the trend right now so well.

I find these original drawings of gouache on paper by Betsy Walton so fresh and inspiring that I keep going back to The Shiny Squirrel to look at them and check if they are still there - so I thought I might as well stick them on my blog instead and dream on about Ice Cream Cloud Plant Heaven which is the title of the bottom one.

To celebrate that things were back to normal this weekend, I decided to buy a huge bunch of Peonies. Fiori in ogni stanza! as they say in Italian - meaning decorate every room with flowers! implying that someone important is coming to visit... and that´s just what I did - decorated every room with flowers and yes the important persons was the 3 of us!

Today things are back to normal again - after one month without Kindergarten due to the strike - so no more stress and organizing where to play and who to look after who, no more trips to various museums, jumping in the trampoline and eating icecream everyday - but hopefully we will continue to have little guest in the studio - painting little masterpieces - and proudly sharing them afterwards - there has been quite a production going on here and the smiles on their little faces afterwards has been so rewarding. Our flat is also back to normal now - 6 weeks after the water damage - and we now have newly painted walls and a lovely new wooden floor - you see I´m practicing to focus on the good things and not give energy to things you can´t change anyway - and all this has been a good lesson and opportunity to practice this skill .)

It´s hay fever season here and like last year I´ve become a Hayfever Zombie... so these flowers by danish illustrator Toril Bækmark are safe and great to look at right now and too delicate not to share. I used Toril for a annual report years ago and enjoy to watch her portfolio grow and can highly recommend her work.
