Morning by Foley » Blog Archive » DIY – Les nouveaux pieds

Je tombe en amour devant le modèle « Aldor », un joli pied tout simple, bi-colore, en forme de cilindre. Il faut dire que l’idée de ce site est géniale, remplacer les pieds de meubles Ikea qui sont, pour 95% d’entre eux, très moches et finissent très mal des meubles qui ont parfois un très chouette design (ça concerne mon canapé Karlstag notamment…). Un peu à la façon de Bemz qui vous permet de remplacer les housses. Quelques clics plus loin (sur ce site particulièrement pas ergonomique il faut le dire) je me rends compte que ces jolis pieds tous simples coûtent la modique somme de 85€. QUATRE-VINGT CINQ EUROS O__O Je sais pas vous mais moi je trouve ça abominablement cher. English translation below. L’idée me plait tellement que je décide de la décliner pour mon lit. Grosso modo le total pour les pieds du canapé sera de 11€ de pieds + 3€ de peinture + 4€ de vernis = 18€. Il vous faut : Hanging succulent garden.

Another thing I got up to during my week long Making Friday was to make a hanging succulent garden in my studio.

It all started with the impulse buy of a magnificent Burro’s Tail from Aspen Flowers in Loop Street, and next thing I was googling macrame tutorials on the internet. Just look at how it turned out! It all came together quite quickly, after I learned how to make a really easy macrame hanger that’s not too desperately retro. Made from black cotton rope, it’s actually quite elegant, I think.

Fast and slow at the same time. Both girls had a 24hr bug, not on the same day, luckily. Both are fine now. And then, I woke up with swollen and numb lips. They felt as if I had just been given an anesthetic - an allergic reaction to a new tooth paste I bought, it turns out. Granny Stripe Blanket. All too often I hear people saying "this isn't your granny's crochet" or disparagingly calling something handmade "granny" to mean that it's unstylish, ugly or fussy.

Granny Stripe Blanket

I personally think this is unfair to our collective Grannies, women who made so many beautiful things that still inspire us today. I made this bed sized Granny Stripe blanket with the hope of showing that Granny Style can indeed be a thing of beauty. I think this blanket is both modern and elegant, especially with its playful color note which for me harkens back to the fun and funky crocheted blankets made by many of our grandmothers.
