Golden Goose - Fairy tales by Radion

I bought these five small books at a flea market. They were published in 1959 by Radion, a soap brand.  These are part of a series of 10. They are highly collectable, if the series is complete and in perfect condition.

Forgotten - Cindy Steiler

These works by artist Cindy Steiler move me. The vintage photo's and the stories they tell. I just love the chosen material, the fragility it shows, just amazing.

Artist statement:
'My favorite childhood memories center on spending time with my great-grandmother, Mary Stieler. She taught me to sew, quilt and embroider, all while sharing amazing stories about her life. What she passed to me had been passed to her along a long line of women, inspiring in me a lifelong passion for creating.
Through my work I hope to capture the essence of my relationship with my grandmother while exploring and celebrating all women and girls; our relationships, our daily lives, and our traditions. I want to use my work to preserve and continue the traditions of both craft and story in a way that honors these lineages, but is decidedly modern; that is intensely personal, but accessible to all.'

Flying hats

A vintage game which my children still enjoy! I especially love the typography on the board. This game is from 1975. I posted another - older - version of this game here.

Rope to heaven - Pablo Sanchez Herrero

I came across Pablo Sanchez Herrero through these paintings, ink on paper. I went over to his blog and saw the most amazing work. Herrero paints trees, leafless branches actually. He paints them on doors, walls, in shops. He has a preference for painting his twigs and trees on urban decay. The combination of the two is amazing.
