Some domestic scenes.

I was so lucky today to find this rust-colored wool in the thrift store, probably from someone who has stopped weaving; I think this is the perfect color for another fur :^)
speaking of furs, I got an extra one for two weeks, one that is purring & lazy & fluffy, etc... remember Stella? Heavens she's become fat!
















Baked apples with brown sugar, my favourite calorie bomb :^)
Happy weekend!

The garden of Barbara, John & Eugène.





















'Sunday clears away the rust of the whole week' says Joseph Addison

 ... and with the help of a beautiful garden full of wildflowers and some goodies to eat, the 'derusting' goes much more easier in my opinion :^)
Hope you had a nice sunday too!

Slow down.



















Have you ever heard of the Chelsea chop?
Well, I've read about it in my favorite garden book 'The thrifty gardener' by Alys Fowler; actually it was not really a Chelsea chop, because it is usually carried out at the end of May, coïnciding with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show; but the result is as drastic!
By the way, the chopped plant was a sage.
And
got some fresh vegetables from a friend and the sweet peas are in bloom, they spread a wonderfull fragrance;
and
in the evening, dinner with a friend;
in short, it was a very relaxing day today :^)

The Prinzhorn Collection.



















I saw this exhibition five years ago at the Guislain Museum, but was too dumb to buy the catalog at the time; they were all pieces from the Prinzhorn Collection, so I was happy I could get a reprint when I was in the museum two weeks ago :^)
and...
I went to see Hermine's graduation exhibition, which was also very impressive, check it out here.

The pictures in this post are all from the catalog, except the one with the embroidered jacket; the bottom pics show shreds of torn bed linen.
more pictures soon.
goodnight & sweet dreams :)
