Openhouse Project in Barcelona


Not sure how I found this project but loving it very much ... The Openhouse Project in Barcelona started with the idea of Mari luz Vidal and Andrew Trotter to open their home to show and share their photographic and gastronomic projects in a way which is more personal and intimate.

Every 3 months Mari and Andrew will together with Ana Schulz creating a program of different activities with the theme of photography ... during this exhibition called the Gallery you are all invited to come, see and share with them. All you need to do is write to them and come along, and have a coffee with us.

Or once a month in their kitchen Mari and Andres will organise  a true Japanese dinner together with Nobu Kawagoe. They will post and mail the dates and times. Booking is essential.

I admire people like Mari and Andrew to be brave anough to open their homes ... but I do believe once you are out your comfort zone festivities like this will only bring you more ... in every sense of the word.     [MORE IMAGES]

my collections


I was experimenting with my camera (nikon D7000) last week ... i am the person who loves and cherishes small things that were either given to me or bought my self ... every little item has special value to me ...

image above: my new threads from Angela Liguori ... I have so many ribbons from her already and couldn't resist buying some spools of this gorgeous wrapped cotton thread too , the spoon I bought in china town and the felt brooch was a present from Arounna from Bookhou a long time ago ... she should be selling these too don't you think?

image below: new ribbon from fog linen work, the brooch again :) , paper stars given to me by Jurianne Matter the first time we met, a little candle holder that i bought in a thrift shop and the copper key is from an old clock my parents had at home and a glimpse of one of my new fog linen trays

Hope you like my little gems too ... 




All images by me, Irene.
