twentyfifteen





Too early to think about 2015? Not for a notebook and journal frenzy like myself. I have been waiting for Majolein Delhaas planners to come out and am fairly certain that a purchase will be made very early next month.

DIY | THE DESK ORGANISER














As I just got my desk at school I have desk organisation all over my mind. Scrolling through my favorite: My Dubio I came across this desk organiser using a long metal bar and bending it into place to hold your notebooks. Gorgeous!

ONE



One from my instagram account, a couple of notebooks that I have made for school. A black one with a carton cover (see it's diy instructions here) and a marbled one. It has been a little bit quiet around  here lately, I have just been süper busy with school and finding ways to bend wood... For more regularly life updates find me @dagnybjorg_ on instagram.

ODE TO THINGS




It's a cold, autumn morning today and I feel like all I want to do is stay at home under a blanket with a book and a nice cup of tea. That would be lovely! I'm opting for a work out session and sauna before heading back to school while introducing you to a recent find of mine. It's a micro store called Ode to Things who specializes in well designed everyday object, from coffee makers to memo blocks.

DIY | THE PLANT POCKET

I had these two little plants that were in the need of a proper flower pot, but I just didn't find what I wanted. I recently upholstered a chair and I had some left over fabric and while I still had my mother in laws sewing machine I created these little plant pockets to go around the plastic pots. It's very simple and it took less than 10 minutes to make. That little pile of rope right next to it is a failed attempt to create a twenty five cm high sculpture out of rope and copper wire.

To make the plant pocket follow these steps:
1. cut the fabric into the size you need, depending on the size of the plastic pot that is going in. Make the height twice the size so that you can fold down the edges.
2. Sew along the top in a zig zag motion to secure the fabric from raveling. Fold the fabeuc in half and sew together the bottom edge and the side.
3. To make the corners look nicer pull them out while the fabric is still inside out and sew across the corners and cut away the excess.
4. Turn the fabric around, fold down the top part and place the plant inside the pocket. I have a small plate or bowl underneath to gather the water so that it doesn't leak on the furniture.
