TUBA - N°9

Last weekend we celebrated the opening of our very own collaborated pop up shop called N°9!
It was celebrated with whine, good people and music.



Lien Hereijgers invited us into her work space where she designs and makes beautiful jewelry and asked us to join the TUBA festival. An initiative to upgrade the TUrnhoutseBAan where there are a lot of empty shop spaces.
We created for Lien a natural space using reclaimed wood and light colors. A space where both here jewelry as our own products came together well.

 
 
The space was finished with light fixtures of Oplichterslampen and pillows by Liselotte Kerkhof


 Chris Reijnen created for the occasion a huge pencil drawing. Check out the process here!

For the shop we created a few new wooden products, a new sets of postcard,... 
We are also working on silkscreened items that will be in the shop ( N°9 and online) very soon!

Come and visit us when you can:

Our house!

After a long period of silence, it is finally time for an update. What a crazy few months! 


We bought a house earlier this year, in August we moved in and started renovating - starting with the garden. Well, garden... More like 3 meters of prickly bush and then a huge shed filled with junk. Here are some pictures for you to see. 


The shed was on the verge of collapsing after years of neglect. So we started with the demolition

After a few hours it looked like this...

And then the big conifer had to be taken down and cut into little pieces.



 And this is how it looks now now. Hopefully next year it will be a beautiful garden!




Summer in the allotment garden




The flowers are blossoming in my allotment garden, the Humulus lupulus at the entrance will soon reveal it's light green bells and for the first time in 5 years I have carrots!

This picture made me want to visit Bruges.
Funny GIF by Oamul.
Loving the illustrations of Amyisla Mccombie!

Allotment bouquet




When the plants in my allotment start to flower, I pick the flowers and make a small bouquet to brighten our living room. These flowers are blossoming now.

Happy weekend!

I was recently featured in a weekend magazine. It was a spread about 'women with green thumbs'  :-)
So weird to see yourself printed on paper. I'll keep it for a trip down memory lane in a few decades!
