    Pia, I’m afraid I may have to press legal charges against you. I’m not entirely certain of how it would play out but there must be some type of crime associated with stealing someone’s life!

    Your blog is beautiful, inspiring, dreamy, and delicious. I feel like I’ve just been on vacation…swinging in a hammock, breeze adrift, french accordion playing softly in the background, deep cup of tea, and dreams of how to make the world a bit more beautiful…ahhhhhhhhh 🙂

    I will most assuredly be back!

    Happiest New Year!

    I just wanted to thank you for all the love that you so obviously put into your blog.
    I found you it couple of months ago and now I am completely addicted to it.
    And it is awesome that because you are probably 7 hours ahead (I live in New Mexico, USA) I can wake up to a new posting waiting for me every day.
    I wish you a wonderful hot Christmas.
    I’m from Brazil and grew up with hot Christmases too but I’m not going down there this year. I’m actually jealous…
    Have a beautiful new year!!!!!

    Hi Pia,

    I stumbled upon your blog by clicking on a link from somewhere else(?) Wow. My mum and I used to be customers at D.Y. We still have lots of the beautiful things we bought from you. What an amazing life you have, and such a beautiful blog. I don’t know how people find the time to blog. I’ll be popping back often to spend more time here. My husband and I have started our own business and we’ve just started at Etsy. Just wanted to say hi!

    I am an Egyptian lady, I live and work in Dubai. I have an artistic side that loves photography and fine handmade pieces of art and reading your blog connects me to the things I like. I am visiting Paris in June and will certainly buy your book Paris Made By Hand. Thank you for the beautiful blog.

I currently live in Glasgow and am in Amsterdam for the next two days… can you recommend a place to sit and watch the world go by? Or some quirky art galleries? (I’m studying at the Glasgow School of Art). And if you’ve finished your deadline and have some free time, feel free to join me!

    Happy blogging, Anna

    Hi Pia,

    I love you blog and your books. Although we are living in Amsterdam, I did not know all the adresses in your last book. It is very inspiring. We just visited London and I thought it would be wonderful if you ever could make a “London made by hand”?.

    Have a nice summer!

    Hello Pia,

    just a short note to let you know I published a post about you a your book, Amsterdam Made by Hand, on my blog: Thisgirllel.com

    We have a few things in common, I think, as I’m also an Aussie and have been living in Amsterdam for nearly 9 years (gulp!). And I’m an Art Director/Designer by trade. Currently at a place called Sid Lee, recently ex-Wieden+Kennedy, if you know anything about advertising 🙂

    I was wondering if you’d like to meet up one autumny afternoon and chat about all the beautiful things you can find in Amsterdam and beyond? If so, just drop me a line.

    Dear Pia,

    I’m a casting producer for Granada Media in Sydney and we’re currently looking for high end designers, artists, creatives and decorators for a new design-based reality television show called TOP DESIGN. The show will go to air on Channel Nine and will be hosted by Jamie Durie.

    In my research I came across your impressive blogsite and wanted to see if you would be interested (or know someone who could be interested) in applying for the show.

    The format of the show is similar to ‘Project Runway’ but will focus on Interior Design/Decorating. Each episode will feature design & interior challenges and the winner of the series will receive a large cash prize and national recognition. We are looking for people across different creative industries of a high calibre and with a strong sense of aesthetics (which you obviously have from looking through your website) who would like to translate their style into design and interior challenges.

    You can go to http://www.ninemsn.com.au/topdesign for more details and the application form which you can email through to topdesign2011@granadamedia.com.au along with a recent photograph and 3 x examples of your visual style.

    Many thanks,

    I received your book today and have read half of it already. Its inspiring… I have already ordered another to be sent to a friend who also has wanderlust..I feel inspired, I want to stop lingering in London (30years!!) and move somewhere else. I have talked about it for years but family life and creative contacts keep me here but you have made me believe I can take the step. I am only talking about moving west 100miles so what am I waiting for? Thanks Pia and good luck with your future work.

    Hi Pia – I have just found your blog and then immediately went out and bought My Heart Wanders – it’s inspiring-it’s glorious – an assault on all the senses. Now I know what I am going to buy my girlfriends for Christmas. I gave up a career to live in Crete in the Nineties – THE best thing I have ever done – scary – but my gut instinct (which I had lost touch with living in Sydney – I think we all do) knew this was the right thing to do. Looking forward to devouring your blog posts. If we can’t be there ourselves then we can live vicariously thanks to people like you. Thank you. F

    Hi Pia, I’ve been following you for some time and love everything about what you do. My friend just gave me your beautiful book, My Heart Wanders for my birthday. It’s as though it was meant to be just for me. I am at a cross roads in my life and have been on a journey to discover my own heart (i lost it somewhere…) Your book spoke to me and clarified so many questions….to be, just to be is what I am working on now. Thank you for sharing your journey.

  70. Dawn says

    Hi Pia
    I have just finished reading your book My heart wanders, I love it, the presentation, the photographs and the storytelling really touched me deeply. I myself have been a bit of a wanderer since my marriage break down, people would ask me what are you searching for as I moved from state to state, I didn’t know that I was searching for something I had this inner knowing that I needed to follow my heart. The journey wasn’t always easy, now looking back on the last 13 years I can say that I know myself a little better, sometimes I sit in the place of contentment, then the urge to move comes along, this time I have decided to stay with the urge and go within connecting deeply with my heart and encouraging my inner creator to design new artscapes from my life journey. As yet I haven’t managed to get anything together but like you I have a blog spot where I occationally these days add new stories. Thank you for your inspiration and good luck with the new baby, I look forward to following your blog as a new creative journey is about to begin for you.

    I just came upon something special. I first became aware of your work through the design files, Lucy’s blog. I was Typo in Melbourne about a month ago and a book jumped out at me, Markets in France, then today I got your email and went into your blog only to find out that you designed the front cover of this book. I love it, the cover and the book. Then I find out from your blog that this article was posted on 19th May, my beautiful mother’s birthday one year after she passed away. The world keeps getting smaller.

    I discovered your website and blog via the Anthology magazine. I am a belgian/american photographer, based in LA and I LOVE your work! Since I’m going to Amsterdam this coming April and I am interested in housing for rent/buy, could you tell me where you found your houseboat or what would be a good address to find one?

    Hello Pia, I just found a reference to your book in Frankie, while at the library, here in Wellington New Zealand, then wondered if, possibly they held it, and was wrapped to find they did. I took it home and immediately plunged into it. The ‘tiny signs of tenderness are everywhere.’ Defiantely let you heart rule your in your new role as a mother.

    Nice to see another wandering heart. At the moment my time is divided between a home in Vancouver, Canada and a cottage in Oxfordshire, UK. It’s always been like this (except the countries and amounts of children in tow may have changed) Good for you Pia, I’m glad I came across your blog.

    Hi Pia,

    I came across your piece called “Should I post this image?” on another blog and was wondering (ironically?) about the permissions for that particular flowchart. Is it released under a creative commons license? If not, would you object to me using it at my school and with my students when discussing copyright, ownership and the use of images in self-publishing/blogging? Thank you so much and I await your reply!

    Hi Clint, please go ahead and use the poster, that’s why we made it, to spread the word about copyright. Thanks for asking!

    Hi Pia, I am a young stylist based in Melbourne. Since reading your book my heart wonders (which was truly an amazing read) I cannot stop dreaming of taking my talents overseas! The only thing is I’m absolutely terrified!! Can I please ask how you managed to take the plunge?

    Wonderful, keep inspiring

    Hi Pia,
    Your blog is beautiful. I’m working on a story for Club magazine in Cape Town about people who live in unique homes and interviewing them about what home means to them. I would love to include you in the piece. The mag goes out to 700 000 readers in SA. Please let me know if you’d be interested. Many thanks, Vanessa

    Hi Vanessa, thank you so much for your interest in my work. I’m happy for you to include me in your magazine. I don’t have much time these days for interviews, so if you require one it may take a while. Thanks again! Pia
