Photoblog!

Although I’ve been keeping you more than up to date (photo-wise) of our US-roadtrip adventures, a lot has happened since. We’ve been back for about two months now and since then it’s been all work and very little play. But that’s okay, because a lot of great things have been happening these past weeks! Click through to see what I’ve been up to.

Inspiration Monday

Can you believe October is halfway over already?! I surely can’t. It’ll be christmas before we know it. Time really flies when you’re having fun. Anyway, I’m looking forward to a very exciting week, because this week it’s Dutch Design Week here in The Netherlands. I’m preparing for an inspiration overdose and good times with friends and fellow-designers. I hope your week will be just as good as mine, but with an Inspiration Monday like this the odds are good if you ask me. Enjoy!

The Nostalgia ‘Tag’

A few weeks ago, the lovely Evelien (a.k.a. Miss Fotografille) invited me to fill in this nostalgia tag. Now if there’s one thing I like very much, it’s dwelling over my youth years and thinking of how everything was more awesome back then. So click through, sit back and read about my kid and teenage obsessions!

Random roadtrip shots

I can’t believe I’m actually saying this, but with last week’s post about the Neon Museum, my blogpost-series about our USA-roadtrip has come to an end. Almost. Because during our trip, I also took a lot of pictures that didn’t properly fit into the posts I’ve written before. But I just couldn’t not share them with you. So here are some random roadtrip shots. And here’s to the best roadtrip ever, which will always be one of my favourite memories. Click through for all pictures.

The Neon Museum

One of my absolute favourite things of all time is neon signs, as some of you may already know. I’m sad to see we don’t have many here in The Netherlands, whereas in the U.S it’s really hard to not see them. So when I heard there was a ‘neon-sign graveyard’ in Las Vegas I just knew I had to go there. Click through to see more!

The Brooch Brigade

For those of you who have been visiting my stall at the markets I have been this past year they may not be new. To the rest of you, let me introduce you to the newest ‘baby’ of the ‘franje family’: brooches! These brooches are made of plastic and are all finished with a glossy transparent resin for protection.

Inspiration Monday

Our girls’ weekend out I told you about last week was SO much fun! I think I need about a week to recover from it. But to be honest with you, I really don’t have the time for that because a new week with awesome projects awaits! So let’s start this week like it’s supposed to: with a brandnew Inspiration Monday!

Nevada State

After six (!) blogposts entirely devoted to the states John and I visited during our USA roadtrip, this seventh one, about the state of Nevada, is the final one. We weren’t in Nevada or a very long time so we didn’t see very much over there, but it was yet again so beautiful and so very different from what we’ve seen in Washington, Oregon and California.
