My kids are not so impressed by playground items anymore. I am.

Artist and fashion illustrator Lisa Grue from Underwerkets Projects has kindly invited
me to do a talk at her and Laura Terp Hansen design laboratory in October. Other invited
are Amelia Gregory from Amalia's magazine and the design duo Meyer-Lavigne.
The booklet.

Hello handmade competition.
Hook Rail.

I need this coat.

Don't forget about Suvi Ainoa's giveaway.

You are not kidding... These are the most amazing things I've seen in a kid's playground - EVER!! And I've seen a lot mind you... Could these even be driftwood?? The colours are right for driftwood. Thank you for visiting my dolls today. I know, they're a lot of work but I love making them and can't stop working onthem until they're perfect... So what do I do?? Pruxxx

What amazing things to have in a park to be played on. Love that horse!

And yes, that coat you want is simply gorgeous.

Have a great weekend.

Those are amazing. Wish we had them in playgrounds when I was younger.

Marina said...

These are adorable! I think the kids will remember them later and cherish the photos you took.

I care for them. I still like swinging. But dont fit in one anymore.

Olly said...

Yey! Am so excited about the talk.
It's true, those funny animals are fascinating. What I love are those carrousels that you can spin by turning the wheel in the middle. So much fun I used to have (and still do) on those ones :-)

What beautiful playground toys! I think your are right, I appreciate them much more than my children ever would, apart from maybe the horse for my daughter.
Thanks for sharing.

I love these animals on springs. We have them and I had them growing up but metal. I've never seem them made of wood- very neat.
I too love that coat. Blue or Black. Hmmmmm.
