3. i had to go to the department of tourism which was one of the most depressing experiences ever
4. i've been separated from my camera for 4 days now
5. our sunset mural was knocked down. boooohooooo this is our last picture on the beach before it disappeared forever. sadness.

a small collection (part 3)

some pretty kitchen towels that i just want to look at and never get dirty.

1. paris metro map from paris. (i was there exactly a year ago. sigh)

2. let's make pie. a gift from kallie from the u. s. of a. now i just need to make pie.

3. a lucky find from an antique store. vintage hungarian embroidery with the text that apparently means "one holds success, not the other". how sad, look at that little boy crying while his slutty girlfriend falls for some flowers and a smooch.

4. a present from my loved one. skinny laminx

ps: i don't like ironing.

a small collection (part 2)

a collection of scales which i'm not quite sure what to do with but still love.
the big one is a baby scale. yes, you weigh new born babies on it. i like thinking about where it was used and how many screaming babies lay in it. maybe i can weigh some kittens instead.

a small collection (part1)

my collection of swans who hang out on our bathroom cabinet.
i love the tiny one the most. he's from a junk shop in amanzimtoti. shame, it's not his fault.
