I used to play with the children who lived here ... a gazillion years ago. It was a small farm, with only about 15 animals. I remember those light brown, calm cows, and the milk running through a tube under the ceiling. I remember the smell and the sounds. Today, there was only whispers of time gone by.

Elderflower Adventure

This weekend we went to our favorite elderflower spot for this years' elderflower syrup batch. It is sitting in the fridge now, in a few days it will be ready to be bottled—some we will savour right away, some will stay in the freezer. Come winter, we will defrost and drink—hot or cold—and taste Summer all over again!
You can find the recipe at Clemmensen & Brok.

I have just spend the whole week looking at these stamps, trying one out from time to time :-) The box sits in my window, and I smile every time I pass by ...
In between, I've been working like crazy. Summer is upon us, and with it, the anticipation of vacation. We have much to do before we lock up for the holidays. Thankfully.

Pernille & I met this morning at the flee marked to see if we could find inspiration and collage candy for the up-coming workshop season. Here's one of the treasures we found! Wooden stamp blocks aren't the best for stamping on paper, but it is doable, especially if the paper is damp. But the motives are glorious, and if not to stamp with directly, you can always use the patterns as inspiration for carving rubber stamps.

We also found some great paper goods (paper greats ;-) and plastic trinkets, which are going to be for sale in the pop-up shops during our workshops.
I've added a new board to Pinterest—with collages and Art Journals. The pinned collages previously lived in the board "Loveliness", but needed their own space to play :-)
