SUNDAY INSPIRATION

Today we are going to FORMLAND (danish home accessory fair) and we are looking forward to being inspired and see what spring/summer are bringing. We have a lot of plans for this year and we are very exited about it. We can't let you in on anything yet, but we assure you that it's going to be very creative and hopefully it will make you feel inspired. 
 
 
Have a great Sunday! /Sussi & Annika

THE LIGHT OF DAY

Photography is all about light. I think many of us, who prefer to shoot in natural light, are fed up with the dark months and very much longing for lighter and longer days. But this afternoon, when the sun was setting, I was lucky enough to catch a very warm light, and for those couple of minutes, it almost felt like a summer's evening. I'm definitely awaiting spring and not having to use a tripod all the time :) 'Cause nothing beats the actual feeling of the camera in your hands. How have you been coping with your photography this winter? /Annika
 

SPRING INSPIRATION

Today I made an ad for my sister's work, where I had to do a minor photo shoot of the new flowerpot spring collection. I took the opportunity to snap a few extra photos for the blog. The flower pots are from KRIFON (wholesale) and the material are mostly wood, worn looking glazed ceramics, glass, metal and terracotta with concrete looking glaze. It's fun to get new inspiration and this weekend we are of to FORMLAND (danish home accessory fair) to be even more inspired. Are any of you visiting FORMLAND this weekend? /Annika
 
 

CUP OF FLOWERS

Since the post last Sunday, I have been wanting to use these little teacups as flowerpots. They are tiny, so I had only room for a couple of muscari. But they turned out really fun and they made for a great photo sessions as well. Wish you all a happy Saturday! /Annika
 
 

TEA CUPS & SCRUFFY KITTENS

This collage is featuring some of my favorite objects, both to photograph and to collect. I have a thing for tea cups and mugs and I enjoy the feeling of having a cup in my hands, how it's shaped, and how it feels to drink from it.
A while back I did a lot of ceramics and I was crazy about making mugs. It was almost a contest with myself to make one cup better than the other. It seemed like the possibilities were endless.
I wouldn't say that I have a huge collection of teacups, it is more one of those objects I feel drawn to when visiting flea markets. That, along with things like little salt and pepper shakers, old illustrated books, beautiful old type & vintage posters.
I'm not really good at buying expensive finds, just because it has become popular. I like to look for odd little things that has no real value, except for its peculiar beauty. Like the scruffy kitten no one wants.
What are your favorite objects to collect?
 
Have an inspiring day! /Annika
 
 

FINDING BEAUTY IN WHAT YOU HAVE

I think you all know the feeling when you look in your overly filled closet, thinking that you have nothing to wear and that you need something new.
Or you got tired of your china collection and don't feel you could stand eating from it ever again. That if you just bought something new....well, you would feel renewed.
 I think that sometimes it's too easy to get rid of what you have and just buy something new. And I'm not just talking about wanting new stuff, but always wanting more, not enjoying what you already have. I know a lot of you really enjoy flea markets and buying old stuff, but I bet you also have a lot of that laying around already, things that are not being used, not being appreciated. 
It does take a bit of effort to always appreciate and use what you have, but I like to think that there is beauty and potential in everything, it just depends on how you look at it. Maybe those old clothes needs a scissor or maybe you could paint you old china? It's all about that particular light you choose to shine on things. Even a grey day can be beautiful...if you want it to be.
 
Have a great Sunday! /Annika

THE CONTRASTS OF RELATIONSHIPS

I have been staying at my sisters for a while and it's quite fun to see how we do things differently. Since I'm no flower ninja, but none the less liking flowers very much, I have a more simple approach to flower arrangement. My sister being THE flower master, doing all the bouquets and flower decoration in ways that are beyond my imagination, she often uses a more artistic approach, presenting her pieces in beautiful vases and so. Where as I like to use the shabbiest containers as vases, because I have this crazy idea about using things in ways they were not intentionally meant to. It's a challenge and I like the contrasts of the results. And it's the same with the inspiration my sister gives me through her work and the contrasts it presents to my way of thinking and our relationship. It creates beautiful and interesting results.
 
Have a great Thursday! /Annika

RAW SIMPLICITY AND ELEGANCE

I have been looking forward to be sharing these pictures with you. As you might have noticed, it's my sister who's the flower master around here...and I'm the lucky one getting to photograph all of her creations. I know a lot of you really like to photograph as well, so you probably know what I'm taking about when I say that; not everything looks as good on camera as it does in real life. The interesting thing is that, what we perceive with our eyes, can be adjusted. We often choose how to see things, leaving out one detail and including something else. But the camera sees everything, nothing can be hidden. This makes certain shapes or objects more fit than others to be photographed. So when my sister came with this beautiful, odd shaped bouquet, I was not only thrilled about her ability to be creative and original, but I knew the photo shoot was going to be such a pleasure. The raw simplicity and elegance of this flower piece was breathtaking. 
 
The decoration is made from anemones and cut of branches(preferably not too crooked) in different sizes. The flowers has uneven lengths to give the piece some layers. Secure everything together with some coarse string. 
 
Happy Saturday! /Annika
 
 

TURNING OLD TO NEW

I like the thought of using found objects when decorating.
It's fun to come up with new ways of using flea marked finds and combining them to make new things for the home.
For this little project I have used a couple of embroidery frames as wall decoration. I have then attached a  cover from an old music sheet and for the other frame I used a small crochet tablecloth. The candle is made from an old oil lamp and a small tray. /Annika
