TYPEWRITER PRINT FREEBIE

Today I have a really cool present/download for you. A while ago i bought this gorgeous old 1910 Mercedes typewriter. Those of you who follow us on Instagram (precious_sister) may already have seen this beauty. She a very solid and heavy lady, but she sure is elegant. I love the colors and all the details of this machine. Anything made today with so many details and functions would be all covered up in a sleek and shiny design. I think it sometimes makes us appreciate things less, when we can’t really see and understand how they work.

Anyway…back to the download. I snapped some really awesome pictures of this lady and I wanted to share them with you. They fit perfectly together on a wall, yet they are all different. Just right click the images and save. You can then have them printed at your local print shop and framed. I have made the format so they fit standards like Ikeas A4 frames. The resolution allows you to print bigger though.

I hope you like them. If you choose to get these printed, I would love to see a picture of them on your wall. You can just post the link in a comment below.

 

These prints are for personal use only. Please do not resell.

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

ITALY: LUCCA & CINQUE TERRE

I love traveling and experiencing new places and I find huge inspiration in learning about other cultures. I have always had a soft spot for architecture, food and smaller places that allows you to enjoy both nature and culture. A couple of years ago I visited Lucca in Tuscany, which was my first trip to Italy.

LUCCA & CINQUE TERRE

Lucca was, to me, a perfect place to be. You’ll find lots of great food and beautiful architecture right at your feet, while the mountains and the coast are only a short drive away. Florence and Pisa are also very close and the magnificent Cinque Terre will absolutely be worth your while.

Cinque Terre, “The five lands”, is composed of five villages built into a steep hillside. You can walk between the villages, while enjoying the breathtaking views of this piece of Italian Riviera. I have never in my life seen such a colorful place like Cinque Terre. It was like a painting.

Bring Out the Artist’s Personality with Abstract Art Apple Watch Bands

As an artist, there are several awesome ways in which you can bring out your artistic personality to fascinate and demonstrate to the world how you appreciate beauty. One of them is to invest in the beautiful Apple Watch bands. These abstract art watch bands are designed by an amazing community of independent artists, who have artistically crafted perfect designs for everyone.

Why Apple Watch Bands?

Over the past few months, we’ve been doing a survey. At the end of it, we learned something; many artists rock an Apple wristwatch. Nonetheless, we found the following to be some of the possible reasons for that:

1. Practicality

You already know that nowadays people wear wristwatches more to bring out their incredible sense of style than to check the time. After all, we can do that on our smartphones. Nonetheless, Apple wristwatches are among the best types of watches to have for fashion and sense of style purposes. This can be attributed to their artistic-oriented wrist designs, which are an artistic way to showcase your artistry.

2. Artistic Personality

Unlike many boring wristbands for other watches, Apple Watch bands are all designed to give your watch some personality, allure, and art. This is due to their well-thought-out bright and bold designs with complementary colors, which will perfectly go well with your distinguished wardrobe as an artist.

3. Durability

Apart from practicality and artistic personality, Apple watch bands are designed with durability in mind and that’s another reason they are a great choice for you as an artist. These bands are designed with a top-of-the-range material that will stand years of usage plus wear and tear without compromising on their unique looks. The material in question is vegan leather with a soft suede-like underside.

4. Comfort

Besides contributing to a refined look that coordinates with your sense of style, the above material will ensure your wrist remains comfortable in it. Even when you wear a band tightly around your hand for many hours, you’ll not feel your hand hurting. This is unlike other types of watches we wear for fashion purposes, which can prove uncomfortable if worn many hours at a time.

5. Customization

Customization is an important consideration for any real artist who is all about imagination and creativity. You want to pick a wristwatch you can wear in many different creative ways to bring out your broad sense of style.

The Apple wristwatch is a very great choice for this purpose because you can customize it with several types of bands from the same manufacturer. The bands come in four different colors that are all perfectly compatible with the watch and are going to coordinate perfectly with your wardrobe; black, silver, gold, and rose gold. You can invest in each color to expand your customization options.

6. Universal

There’s no denying the fact that there are many different types of Apple watches on the market. For example, we have about seven watches in the company’s wristwatch lineup released in different years since 2015;

  • 1st Generation Apple Wristwatch(2015).
  • Series 1 Apple Wristwatch(2016).
  • Series 2 Apple Wristwatch(2016).
  • Series 3 Apple Wristwatch(2017).
  • Series 4 Apple Wristwatch(2018).
  • Series 5 Apple Wristwatch(2019).
  • Series 6 Apple Wristwatch(2020).
  • Series E Apple Wristwatch(2020).
  • Series 7 Apple Wristwatch(2021).

Now, Apple wristwatch bands are compatible with most watch series from the manufacturer as the connector size and shape are standard across the board. That allows artists to continue using their existing Apple wristwatch bands with any new Apple watch they acquire.

Final Thoughts

As an artist, you can bring out your creativity and show your sense of style as well as sophistication by investing in an Apple wristwatch and the bands that are designed to be used with the watch. These bands come in different amazing colors that will perfectly complement your wardrobe and style, showing the world how unique and limitless your creativity is.

HOMEMADE BREAD

Since 2007 I have been eating gluten free. In the beginning I mostly bought the gluten free food I needed, but with time, when it became more of a life style, I started to bake and make my own bread, cakes and so on. I have always appreciated food and I love to cook, but the awareness living gluten free has brought to my life, is probably what I am most grateful for. It has forced me to listen to my body, feel the difference between bad and good foods, and it has really taught me to enjoy homemade meals.

HOMEMADE BREAD

Bread and desserts are some of my favorite kitchen endeavors. I love the smell of homemade bread and even more to eat it. Dessert is something I especially like to make for others. I just love the expression someone gets when they take that first bite of a really yummy dessert.

HOMEMADE BREAD

When I started out baking I always used a recipe. The bread in these pictures is one of those “let’s see what we have in the cupboard” kind of bread. I have a basic recipe I use and then I change it, according to what I might have at home. I like baking this way, but I can’t give you the exact recipe here. I can tell you, though, that some of my added ingredients are oats, linseed, sunflower, buckwheat, and rice flour.

HOMEMADE BREAD

BASE RECIPE: makes 1 loaf

1 cup water
15 g yeast
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp honey
2 1/2 cups gluten free flour

Let rise for 1 hour.
I sometimes let it sit for another 30 min in the baking tray before baking it.
Bake about 30-40 min. at 220 degrees celsius.

WOOD FLOWER POT

Hi guys. I was actually going to post this yesterday, but I was busy doing things and I totally forgot about it. Anyway, so I’ll do it today, show you this wooden flower pot that I made for my magnolia tree.

WOOD FLOWER POT

Those of you who follow us on Pinterest might remember these very gorgeous worn looking flowerpots from Pottery Barn. Well, that was the inspiration for this project. I wanted to achieve a similar look to in my flower pot, so without really having a plan to follow, I decided that the wood I had laying around, was going to determine the look and the size of the pot.

*the following description of how I built the pot is not an exact plan, but more an inspiration to how you could make and design your own.

WOOD FLOWER POT

I used scrap pieces of planks from pallets and scrap plywood pieces. I cut 4 identical pieces of plywood for the sides. The planks were cut into thinner pieces to go outside the sides of the pot and their length was adjusted to the length of the plywood sides. I put everything together and added 4 pieces of wood to the inner corners to strengthen the construction. Then I added a bottom and feet and I made a trim to go on the top edge of the pot, but didn’t attach it yet.

WOOD FLOWER POT

I stained the wood blue before I painted it white, because I wanted to see if some of that stain would show through when I distressed it later. I only gave it one coat of white to keep as much of the wood structure as possible and when it had dried I sanded it down to give it a worn look. (Remember to paint the trim as well). The stain didn’t shine through as blue, but more a grey color. If you’d like a more intense color to shine through, you should use a colored paint instead of stain.

WOOD FLOWER POT

Before I planted my small magnolia tree, I covered the inside of the pot with plastic. I use the bottom of one of those sturdy see-through garbage bags and secured it to the top edge of the pot. Remember the trim we made, but didn’t attach? Nail that to the top edge on top of the plastic. This way you get a nice finish and the plastic edge wont show.

WOOD FLOWER POT

Now plant your tree and enjoy your little project 🙂
