Lazy Mondays 28.02.2012

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.

Lazy Mondays

A Monday night tucked up warm and cosy at home. A take-out pizza for diner followed by a yummy tub of Ben and Jerry's. Dennis and I are gradually working our way back through the Sex and the City series and I'm truly loving it! I do love the occasional lazy Monday :-)
I'm feeling very VERY happy with myself as I've just finished the border to my Granny square project! I can not tell you just how super happy I am with it. I am really looking forward to sharing it with you very soon. However, I've promised myself that I am not allowed to share it until every last end has been sewn in. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be in the next week or so.

Last post Dennis briefly mentioned the work of Isabelle Kessedjian and I couldn't let it pass without sharing a couple of her beautiful products we have here at home.
Dennis stumbled across these beauties when he visited Le Havre (France) with his cruise ship.

It seemed like quite a big coincidence to find these in a shop, as Dennis and I had been admiring her work for a long time on Instagram. I think the bags are so cute! We have one each. They sit on top of our yarn box, usually stuffed full with our current WIPS.
Dennis also bought this lovely little zip up coin pouch. It's just so sweet! I love it! Isabelle Kessedijian really has an amazing talent. It's really worth a visit to her fabulous blog, for a daily dose of inspiration!

We've been drinking our morning coffee out of the same dull Ikea glasses for quite some time and felt it was time for a change.
Off we went to the department store around the corner and picked up these happy mugs from the Dutch brand Blond Amsterdam.
We both knew this brand from The Netherlands and were pleasantly surprised to find it being sold in Germany as well.

We love how positive they are with their adorable illustrations.
The first cup says 'Cake it Easy!' on the front and 'Make cake not war" on the back. How very very true!

The second mug reads 'Happy days' on the front and 'Tough cookie' on the back.

The mugs came with a cheery label tied up with yummy yellow ribbon and a deep red apple.

They hang happily at home in our tiny little kitchen. Did we mention our kitchen is tiny? Judge for yourselves :-)
