When I started this blog over a year ago, I'd never have thought I'd make it to the 100th post. I usually have zero persistence when it comes to any activity...

But oh surprise, here we are. The 100th post.

To celebrate this major interweb event, I'm staging a little giveaway. Yeah, Christmas is coming early this year.
So if you want to have a chance at winning this set of lovely vintage Belgian bowls, just leave me a comment. I'm curious to read who you are and where you're from.
I'll announce the winner in two weeks.

And from what I've seen on other blogs, nothing brings out the commentators as free loot... So bring it on guys.

Edit - Since I have been totally neglecting this little blog for the last few weeks and months, I think I will prolong the giveaway for a couple more weeks. Sort of a belated Christmas gift then... And hopefully by January I will have gotten my priorities right and will start blogging more regularly again :-)

Tomado loot

Thursday, 11 November 2010

I am unstoppable. Look what I scored on ebay last week.

That's right. More Tomado shelves ! 'Cos a girl can never have too many Tomados...

Ok now, what am I going to do with all these ?

1. Replace the orange and green metal shelves on the "bedside table" with two lovely wooden ones. Done.

Btw, I also swapped some art around. This is Sandro Juto's 'bookgirl' print, and it's definitely appropriate bedroom decor for somebody who could spend days in bed just reading.

A wider view. I still need to find some big-ass art to hang over the bed.

And of course :

2. Hang up the twin bedside Tomado on the left side.

And just for kicks the same space 'after' and 'before'. Almost one year apart.

Further on the Tomado to-do list:

3. Use the wider shelve for the kitchen Tomado. Done, but not yet documented.
Sorry I slept through most of the afternoon and now it's already too dark to take a decent photo. Just this much, I have now even more space for even more "onion men"...

4. Resell the leftovers. Half-way done. A friend came by to pick up the larger elements. I am now left with one big vertical piece, one small one and the two metal planks, all of which are going to be sold on ebay as spare parts. Someday.

Feeding my West German Pottery addiction

Allow me introduce my latest WGP acquisition: an orange and green Bay vase, 30 cm tall, bought on ebay this week for 6 eur. Add to that about the same amount for shipping.

It's still a deal.

All Saints' Day

Tuesday, 2 November 2010

No, I did not spend the day in Lothlorien...

I did however go through some good old traditional 'Toussaint' activities.

Drive to Luxembourg to visit family. Check. Spend about three minutes at the cemetery to honour the dead. Check. Instead spend three hours at lunch to honour the living. Check. Mandatory tax-free booze and cigarette shopping. Check.

What about you ? Did you have a long weekend ? Did you accomplish anything productive ?
