Unseen Photo Fair was on the last few days. Amazing stuff. I went with a lovely bunch of gals from mostly from work, our first stop; Inside Out by JR. The project is like a photo booth on a massive scale. The photos have then been printed large format and posted all the way around the exhibition space with stunning results.
Foam, to smaller exhibitions, the Unseen shop, and even an oyster bar.
Wim Van Krimpen Gallery by photographer Tanja Deman's Collective Narratives series which I just love to death. The first two shown below I just adore.

Fun and games at home for the kiddly winks today. I've noticed a lot of pins of Mr Printables on Pinterest, but never really clicked through to find out more. Friday I did, and discovered an absolute treasure trove of gorgeous free downloadable templates for kids crafts, and more! I had some friends over on the weekend with kids and printed off these bird templates as a test run – they went down a treat. Super fun.
Mr Printables also had a lovely blog with wonderful inspiration for kids toys, games, advent calendars, decor, and lots lots more. It'll be a few years before Ricochet and I can be crafting up a storm together, but I have some friend out there who I know will be head over heels for these (Liv, Nic... :)).

Leah Giberson has graced the Tiny Showcase gallery with another of her sublime artworks. The print of this super slick and sexy airstream trailer is up for grabs now. But chop chop, at USD $40, this limited edition of 100 prints of "Untitled Trailer" is high-taling it outta there fast.
Stop motion paper treat today: The Human Body by Kelli Anderson. It's to promote a great educational app on the body. You can check our her blog here for more about this video's production. Nice on, Kelli.

Trodelmarkt Arkonaplatz for the second time this year for a treasure hunt and cafe lunch. Edu managed to find some vinyl treasure and I found a few little trinket boxes (pictured) for my jewellery box, and for sewing needles and pins, and two lovely vintage children's books. Today is marks my first day of maternity leave (yay!!), so I'll be busy translating these from French and German soon – thank goodness for Google Translate – along with a few other irresistible books I've picked up the last few years. A fabulous weekend with friends and my man; my last flight and bit of travel for a while. Now I'm grounded in Amsterdam until little Ricochet arrives...

Portugal was decided on receiving a rather spectacular wedding invitation from Edu's ex-Crispin-partner. He's Portuguese, his bride to be American, and they were going to tie the knot in Luso. Oh, did I mention it was to take place in a palace. In the crazy beautiful Bussaco Palace. Take a gander. Talk about your next-level fairy-tale wedding. Had us a fab time – thanks Lauren and Nuno!
