An autumn photo shoot

The leaves have turned, I love this time of year. Love the look and smell of the forest, a wonderful time to take a walk and kick some leaves! We went to talk a walk and not completely by accident had brought our wonderful autumn bengal spice collection of sari blankets and scarves. Add a camera to that and you have a wonderful photo shoot. We arrived at a beautiful old birch tree that was perfect for an autumn picnic.

Weekword: element

Weekword is hosted by Sally, this week it's element.

This week's word reminded of me a country where the elements are very much present, Bangladesh. The most present element is water. Around 10% of the country is covered in water, with more routinely flooded during monsoon season. If it rains, it pours, sometimes with devastating consequences.

Crafty Photo Scavenger Hunt September

The Crafty Photo Scavenger Hunt is an idea started by Kirst and this month hosted by Rach the Awesome Lady. First of all a big apology for being so late, I've been drowned in photographing and website building and completely forgot.

something i made

I've only been making things in the digital world lately. Here's a little preview. Made together with tomaline. Just a little while to go before we can show you everything!


Here's one of the beautiful sari kantha blankets that were in those huge boxes we picked up from Rotterdam harbour. It has such a beautiful autumnal colour I decided to name it pumpkin!

doodles / drawings

This was on the bench next to our front door, so cute!

seasons change

The strawberry leaves are turning and the light on those bright and crisp mornings is just wonderful.

motif: music

I was a bit stuck here, so browsed through old records for some inspiration. Then I found this beauty, not sure if it counts as a motif really, but it sounds good! Here comes the sun!

Shipment adventures

Last Friday my shipment with orders from Bangladesh was ready to be picked up. This was of course very exiting as we'd been waiting for quite a while and had been working behind the scenes in eager anticipation. So off we went to Rotterdam harbour.


We arrived at the loading platform with our car, normally reserved for trucks...
Four huge boxes, well that will fit, I thought.  The guy who brought them cheerily told us there were three more!

We managed to fit it all into the car! Just unpacked one box and fitted it's contents around the other boxes.

Here's one of the beautiful kantha blankets made from recycled vintage saris. There are some very beautiful ones, and they are all unique. They're very special and I'm so proud to be selling them soon!
