A sign bought at my favorite thrift shop. However, I have doubts about its authenticity.

A Belgian car sign which my son found in an abandoned village

I bought a vintage zoo stroller a few years ago at the Amersfoort Zoo. Really beautiful item but too big to hold on to. So we screwed off the horses' head...

Jack and Jill - nursery rhymes

I thrifted this book a while ago in the local thrift shop. Vintage English children's books are quite hard to find here in the Netherlands so I'm always pleased to discover one!

Paper sculptures - Li Hongbo

Chinese artist and designer Li Hongbo makes sculptures out of paper. What first seems like a plaster sculpture turns out to be made out of thousands of layers of paper, glued and carved. The sculptures open like a flexible sculpture. Watch the video to see how it works.

Edmund de Waal

British ceramist Edmund de Waal is one of the world’s leading artists working in ceramics today. He is best known for his large-scale installations of porcelain vessels. Much of his recent work has been concerned with ideas of collecting and collections: how objects are kept together, lost, stolen, or dispersed. 

I'm not particulary interested in pottery and ceramics but I can enjoy it very much. But this goes beyond pottery. His large scale of the collections is what makes his work so beautiful.
