The rare bird…

Iris Apfel who once said “Never be afraid to stop traffic” a style Icon by accident and a huge inspiration, I just love her colours-, patterns, textile-, stylecombinations and ALL her accessories…so playful…she has a huge warehouse full of her wardrobe…

fairy magic and sacred spaces

from irish garden designer Mary Reynolds which have written several books about the subject of inviting the wild nature in to our lives and a sweet movie have been made about her life…. She has her roots in natural gardening theory, and seeks to create spaces that are healing, truthful and magical.

That have made me wonder about my own place on earth (which I find the most beautiful). I live in a natural magical surrounding and nature…so I don’ t have any ambition about re-arranging or redesigning my environment, but I I would love to transform the magical energy or absorb it into something beneficial…it sounds so effective, but I really think that if any of You could feel the energy of this huge amazing nature of Greenland, you would understand why it gives me and others such an awe feeling…filled with gratitude…you connect immediately with nature, probably because its there pushing you in your mind, body and space..

What Mary Reynolds encourages us to do is to form our own relationship with the little piece of earth we are lucky enough to call our own gardens. I have a huge garden both in front of my house and in the back…wild wild nature…

I have bought some of her books, and they are still waiting to be read…

The Garden Awakening – Designs to Nurture Our Land and Ourselves
Mary is also developing her years of listening to the land into a comprehensive book. Her new approach to garden design is a practical treasure map that leads gardeners into a gentle and healing relationship with the land. This book is a step by step instruction manual drawing on ancient methods of working with the land and using them to invite the power and energy of nature back into your life and surround your house and life in its life giving healing embrace.

Everything becomes simple if you immerse yourself in nature. Life’s complications melt away, leaving only the truth of the present moment, and the presence of what I call God. In this place we can see our soul reflected in every living thing, every gust of wind and splash of rain, and here we can find peace. This is our true home. Yet we are losing what little wild places we have left in nature, those corners where the spirits of the earth are flowing freely, where harmony, and balance still exists and we feel accepted for the truth of who we are. We have gone off course and need to find our way again.An old pathway, overgrown and forgotten, is waiting impatiently to lead us back home. Nature is willing us on.

IMPROVISATION MACH by ANNIKA FRYE – The improvisation machine is an experimental production set up: A series of rotational moulded pieces was produced in it. I transferred the industrial process of rotational molding into my atelier. Because I am not using a fixed mold that produces the same object every time, I can produce variation instead of repetition. Found on annikafrye.de
