We found this unique work of Mister Finch, a UK based artist who taught himself everything he knows.

Scraps of thread, fabric and paper are stitched and pulled into fairytale creatures looking for new owners and worlds to inhabit.

 They hide in the woods, behind masks, some have died along the way and are buried under spoon lockets. Finch works alone and makes everything himself by hand in a studio full of books, glass jars and naughty cats.

Mr. Finch about his work:
"Most of my pieces use recycled materials, not only as an ethical statement, but I believe they add more authenticity and charm. A story sewn in, woven in. Velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress and a vintage apron become birds and beasts, looking for new owners and adventures to have. Storytelling creatures for people who are also a little lost, found and forgotten…"

Koloro Wagon teaches little kids to be organized. We have more gizmos and gadgets than ever.
Inspired by the concept of “storable furniture,” the mobile wagon lets kids store all their toys in one place. The mobility gives them the freedom to roll it around while the 3 stacking shelves lets them unhook certain parts and relocate to other parts of the room. It teaches organization but also mechanics and engineering, 2 flies in one clap ;-)!

Designed by Torafu Architects, the koloro-wagon is the 3rd in a series designed for furniture manufacturer Ichiro. Local purchasing details can be found on the Ichiro shoplist.

This week on social media we asked for the best Easter Do It Yourself ideas, to get inspired for the holidays. Well this worked! Sanneke Swen gave us the best idea.

This Easter she and the kids are practising 'kisses for daddy,' who will return home from a long businesstrip to Taiwan. 
Max (2.5) is teaching his sister BelĂ©n (14 weeks) how to do it!

During the weekend, I read about a great concept on the Milk Magazine blog. It's called Koa Koa. Koa Koa is a monthly subscription service that offers creative and educational activities for kids starting from 5 years old. Each month they select a new theme in the field of the arts or sciences. For this they collaborate with talented designers who develop elegant and appealing activities that will arouse your kids imagination.

Perfect concept in a time where our World becomes more and more virtual! For more information, pls visit their lovely website.

Hello police officer!

Meet the new National Police Officers. For years they have protected the treasures of the National Museum in Amsterdam. They travelled all over the world together.

But since the National Museum re-opened recently, the transport boxes (of which the National Police Officers are made), are not needed anymore. The boxes are given another life!

Every National Police Officer has a different story. If you buy one of them, you can enter the number of your officer at the website and find out which treasure it has protected. Isn't this stimulating the imagination ultimately?

They are really nice as decorative items, or to play with, but the Police officers come as lamps as well!
