a poster from Paris: Made By Hand…
Posted in Uncategorized August 15th, 2009 by pia


…hanging in the window at whsmith in paris.

Am I allowed to have favourite photos from my own book? If I can, this would be one of them. I think really its the space that makes the image, and I just happened to be there to take the photo.
And that person on their bike just happened to ride past looking fabulously french. I remember seeing them coming and snap snap snapping to ensure I got them in the shot.

It’s Saturday. I don’t usually post on a Saturday but sometimes I like to. This week went so fast – my head is still a few days behind.

Have you been clicking around the (blog)house this week? There is actually all sorts of things happening. My guest has posted another wonderful travel adventure, check it out right here. And if you go and take a wander to the (blog)library you will see I paid a visit in there too this week, click here to read my post. Yvette, our (blog)house kitchen guest is away right now in sunny France, but she will be back soon to post another delicious recipe. Oooh, I do hope it’s inspired by her holiday destination.

Have a lovely weekend everyone. I plan to relax as much as possible, I hope you can do so too.

    you are more than allowed to have favourites
    especially when they look like this
    the cracked concrete with the dainty greenery = sexier than brad and angelina.
    i am planting a concrete floor in the restaurant very soon and am going to water it and will it to crack as quickly as possible!

    This blog and you are way too cool. I’ll definitely come back, although I still don’t know what I really like about this blog; everything? Perhaps only the beautiful pictures? (Do you have flickr-account?) or the soundscapes? (are you a recording artist?) or your work? (are you an interior designer?).

    Best wishes,

    Hi Pia,

    I always read your blog with so much pleasure and living in Den Haag I enjoy that you post about places in Amsterdam that I recognise 🙂 Did you know that the New York Times Review of Books has published an ad for your book, at the back of the magazine? The success of your book is spreading further and further, good job! Keep on going!

    It’s a wonderful space, Pia. I have always loved those paper lanterns, and they are particularly suited to this peaceful, verdant space.
