I went to a flea market on Sunday and got two old postcards and antique china. I love it all and it cost me like 50 cents. :)

T-Shirts & Prints

I have a thing for "illustrated" plain T-Shirts. Here are some of my current favourites.
First picture: My new shirt - an invitation to a masked ball - from H&M (left) and a similar "antique" design from Urban Outfitters (right).
Second picture: The new creation from 5 Preview (left) - it will be available in their online shop in December 2009, I personally like it a lot. On the right, the best version of the Wolf shirt I have seen in ages. It's from Lazy Oaf (brilliant as usually).
Third picture: If you (like me) cannot wait for "Where the Wild Things are", this is the shirt to get! It's from Urban Outfitters again. On the right: Danny Roberts' beautiful illustrated shirt. Almost a classic.

Illustration: Mademoiselle Pandora

This drawing is dedicated to the adorable Louise Ebel aka Miss Pandora. It's crayons and watercolour. Unfortunately some of it is missing because my scanner was too small for the entire picture and it could not capture all nuances.

I'm also in LCF's "Pigeons & Peacocks" Blog!

My new skirt

I bought a new skirt today. It's from H&M and it's perfect if you want to look like a ballet dancer. At the moment there are lots of tull skirts and ruffle dresses in H&M which make nice budget party pieces.

Spring Dreaming – Paris

Surprise, it's sunny today! I can actually see the blue sky. That makes me think of spring...
This year in spring I went to Paris and it was lovely. I suppose Paris is beautiful any time of the year but nothing beats a hot day in the "jardin des tuileries", when everybody is sitting around the big pond and enjoying the sun.
Above are a few pictures from my trip. They show some my favourite spots, among them: Laduree, Chanel in Rue Cambon, Chateau de Versailles, and the vintage shop Fripes Star in le Marais.
