......found some more buttons, of glazed clay this time.
And within shortly there is The Invasion of Bruges.
Lots of beautiful things to see.
A great deal of talent from all corners of Belgium and The Netherlands De Invasie

One of my absolute favourite books here at home is Husbibeln (The House Bible),
a book with lovingly words and wonderful photo’s as a declaration of love to the unique cultural environment in the region of Hälsingland, Sweden.
What I really find fascinating in these old houses is the wallpaper. Dreaming to find an original one like that if we ever decide to move to an old house in Sweden.
The photo in the book inspired me to dress up this lucky doll.
Small present for Lotta.

These are old boxes for the sweets given here in Belgium when a child is born, the suikerboon .
Pink for the girl and blue for the boy, just as it should be in those days.
We found it a cute way of wrapping the vintage baby-smock.

You can find these in the Fiasask webshop where we now have made a new heading called Fialotta-things, simply things we like and that we show here on the blog with a link to the shop.

Time to take up the thread where it was left last year and see where it lead us this year, or maybe it’s the moment to start with something completely new.
Today, I laid all the pieces of the traditional clothes from Lotta’s grandmother next to each other. Happy that I got the permission to put them in a suitcase in Sweden and keep them with me for a while.

Love this textile and the beautiful handwork, even the enclosed seam on the inside of the apron
is kind of special.

This book by Dominique Goblet was already laying around for a couple of days, waiting to be read.
And now when it's finished, I absolutely want to share it with you; really beautiful.
