Cause I'm leaving on a jet plain...

Freak of nature

Some polaroids of a shoot I did a while ago with some self-made items. (Long skirt, bodysuits, bolero and umbrella) My idea was to create some sort of freaky, but romantic nymph. The model was great, sometimes she just looks like one possessed. The original shoot will be published in a magazine soon, I'll post it when it's out. Sorry for the bad quality of the images, they were scanned with a really old scanner.

La vie en rose

Some pictures I took today in a little village nearby. I love the fact all the houses here in France are painted in these beautiful pastels. I wish I could paint my house in Holland like the houses here...

Octobre en France

I'm in the south of France right now, taking a little vacation with my family. We're staying in a cute French house in the mountains near a little village called Sospel. I've always had a soft spot for France. The language, the food, the countryside, Paris... I just love it all. I've been trying to learn the language for a while but I think it's quite difficult. They just talk so fast! Here are some pictures I took of the place we're staying in. More pictures of my trip will follow.

A pretty print hanging in the hall.


I love this sign on the bathroom door.

This was a house we passed on the way to the place we're staying now. I just love the colors, the window blinds and the little balconies.

A meter or something in the hall. I just think it's pretty

My worn off shoes in the sun...

A little cabinet for your keys.

People who have been following my blog might know I've got a little thing for light-switches.

Collecter's mania

I've got a craze for collecting. Old pictures, books, laces, suitcases... My house is too small for all my stuff! I'm not able to throw away anything, I want to keep it all! I took these pictures of these beautiful collections in Paris, wishing this stuff was all mine..
I'm really curious about your collections!
