I’ve been feeling like a Handy Mandy again. My dream to have a coloured cord with a simple bulb as a hanging light above the dining table, all fuelled by the countless appearances on  Scandinavian design blogs of course, finally came true. I made it all myself – something completely new and strange to me. It’s not as easy as it seems though - the woven electric cord needed plenty of fiddling with, preventing it from shedding, not twisting it, plus the porcelain socket got blocked, chipped off…literally – a pain to handle. The result is a slightly askew, but joyous little lamp. I’ll go back to the electric supplies shop when the occasion comes  to buy a new socket, and try my best fitting it well next time.
Today I felt like I needed to breath the cold digital winter air…I felt that my current position in blogosphere was suffocating me…I took a ride out into the infinite snowy fields and filled my lungs anew…and I felt that I needed to share.

This is a more personal and honest part of what I do. I run an image blog ± (Various Sources) on Tumblr, write a good old fashion blog .origami mon ami since 2006, and since recently publish a fashion fanzine Various Sources. All Brussels-based, I’m no globe-trotter, although I do explore the Northern part of the Old Continent with immense pleasure.

I want to share what I think, see, like, wear, buy, want, make, do, visit, love, know, discover, find, lose, keep, get, give, take, share
