Birthday brunch

It was Mart's birthday on Sunday; we had a lovely brunch at home (corn pancakes - yum!) before heading to the world's leading art and antiques fair which is conveniently located just a stone's throw away from where we live.

Neon stripes and neon jewelry

I seem to have developed a bit of an obsession with neon colours lately, and last weekend I decided to turn one of my plain white tops into a bright nautical shirt, and while I was at it, I also made a necklace and a pair of earrings in matching tones.

Here's how I did it.
I used:

Neon nautical top:

1. Apply masking tape onto the front of the shirt leaving regular stripes of fabric showing in between (see jumpsuit 3 - sailor stripes in the tutorial I posted over at Fellow Fellow recently) for an example.
2. Make sure everything which shouldn't get sprayed (i.e. the sleeves, the table, the walls, etc.) is well protected with your protective plastic.
3. Spray shirt thoroughly with neon spray paint.
4. Let dry.
5. Repeat all steps on the back of the shirt.
6. Let dry.
7. Remove strips of masking tape, and admire you work.

Neon necklace and earrings

1. Spray a few of your wooden beads (I sprayed 7; five for the necklace, and two for the earrings).
2. Let dry.
3. Thread all your beads on your chain.
4. Voila! The necklace is ready!
5. Cut nails with cutting pliers so that they don't stick out of the bead.
6. Glue nails into beads.
7. Let dry.
8. Glue earrings studs at the back of beads.
9. Let dry.
10. Enjoy your new outfit!

Happy birthday Fabien!

Today is my youngest brother's birthday; and because what I ordered for him is taking longer than expected to get to him, I told him to download a little something to keep him waiting patiently until my package makes it to its destination: the eboy FixPix app.


The app, just like eboy's fantastic posters, is full of countless little details
(we've have the one pictured above in our entrance hall for more than a year and I still discover new things every time I look at it).
The game is colourful, it's fun, and fixing the pictures by tilting your iPhone/iPad feels strangely satisfying (and probably makes you look a little crazy - I'd avoid playing the game while waiting for a bus or metro in a crowded space for example).
Head over here to try out the pixel fixing fun! :-)

Bright jewels

After seeing these two beautiful necklaces I went straight to the hardware store to buy a can of neon yellow spray paint. I just needed to make one too (and now I might just start spraying random things in bright colours too...).

P.S. Claire, from Fellow Fellow, has asked me to do a few guest posts on her beautiful blog. Head over here to see the first one!
It seriously makes me want to be all tanned and in the middle of summer...

Day dreaming

I have been looking longingly at the photos from our trip to California a few summers ago...

Two favourites

I've just noticed that two of my current favourites feature adorable little bees...

On the left is the March screen saver I downloaded from the oh-so-talented Rebekka from Dear Friend
(you can get your own here if you also want your computer to feel fresh and happy).
And on the right is the amazing baby oil from Burt's Bees. 100% natural and absolute goodness for my itchy dry legs.

I can't wait to see little bees buzzing around again. And flowers. And sun.
Ah Spring, please come soon!

I love how one photo (from here) can change so drastically when replicated and mirrored...
