25 02 2013

Are you still up for some inspiration? 

Jurate from Lithuania creates these B E A U T I F U L pieces from Linen. They were new to the fair and I so wish them success for their great products.

Please visit their website and take a look at this awesome catalog and share the word if you can...such nice and friendly people.

Tableware "Positano" from CASAgent

Happy Monday,


Ambiente13 - Part 2 - Frohstoff

22 02 2013

Frohstoff, located in Hamburg, creates beautiful and unique handmade products from fabric and felt.

Their specialty is hand sreen printing with eco-conscious paints on high quality materials.

I absolutely love their colors and cool motifs! So special and very esthetic.

This neon bunny is so cute - unfortunately my I-phone pictures are not really true to the real neon color...

Frohstoff also offers to manufacture special orders and individual pieces so you could create and have your very own sreen-printed design!

Or you could attend Workshops in Hamburg and learn how to make something nice yourself.

Good to know - in case we finally find our new appartement...

Happy Day,


P.S. Ambiente Part 1 here :) 

Ambiente13 - Part 1 - Baobab

19 02 2013

Off we go - today I will take you to Frankfurt to visit the Ambiente - one of the largest consumer-goods exhibitions.

I typically go there to get my materials for my jewelry and when I am done with that I like to wander around checking out what's new and exciting in the field of interior and design.

Of course I always visit the large brands but I equally like to discover small and unique labels.

Like Baobab from beautiful France. They have been in business since 1998 and I had heard about them before but hadn't seen a lot of their products yet.

They are located in La Rochelle at the atlantic coast! [Waaahhh - I spent my very first vacation without parents there when i was fourteen - together with my girlfriends. I can't imagine that I will allow my daughter to go in about four years...]

I really like their original pattern and color combinations and all the lovely little details on their products. Expressive and unusual in a very good way.

Please take a look:

The young French sales-Mademoiselles were so nice and friendly and had the cutest accent ever - I really appreciated their fun attitude because it is not an easy task to be at the fair all day long meeting and greeting tons of people. Real fair-heroes...

I exactly know how they feel at the end of the day because I've been an exhibitor with my own booth at the Ambiente for many years myself. 

Happy Day,


P.S. Stay tuned! There will be more inspiration from Ambiente 13 in upcoming posts. Please note: These are NOT sponsored posts :-)

Knitted Blanket 1

09 10 2012

Same location as last week...

I also took this beautiful wool throw from Zilalila to the field to be photographed when we shoot the towel.

Zilalila is an entrepreneurial "Two women business" from the Netherlands with a Fair Trade Philosophy.

Their website is really nice so please stop by,if you like...

I'm usually pretty spontaneous in getting my blog pictures done.

It goes like this: (Picture my husband sitting in his office at the very far end of our hall. I'm usually busy in the kitchen - so, for convenience we yell thru the house...)

"I neeeeed you to do a picture of meeee and the new toooowel!"

"You want me to photograph you in that bath rooooom ruuuug???"

"It's a TOWEL and yes I neeeeeed a picture with the entire toooowel on it!"

"We dont't have enough rooooom to do a shot like that!"

"Then let's go to the fiiiield!"

"???..." "O.K - I have 10 minutes until the next call!" 

'Hm - then I will pack the wool blanket as well' - thinks the foresighted Blogger...

And that's why you can see that flat land I'm living on again today...

Oh - by the way - the village observation alarm system is still working well - we were of course spotted and it was thought, we were shooting nude photos...

Isn't that hilarious? :) 

Next post I will let you know about the knitted blanket No.2!

More people in scarfs and throws at Papagena.

XOXO, Anette
