Home is where your heart is



You may remember the teacup-bag I had this summer? Now my friend Lisanne Janssen has a new project that I'd love to show you. This is what she has to say:

"For my graduation project i decided to spend a month travelling through scandinavia. i did not plan anything, and spent most of my nights on the couches of friendly people i met along the way. during my stay i took pictures, kept a diary, collected things, and recorded sounds. when i arrived back home, i started making small etchings about my trip. i noticed most of my work was about 'feeling at home'. what caught my attention was that i could feel at home in so many places. even if i was alone, eating an apple next to a glacier. i started to ask myself a lot of questions. what is home? why do you feel at home somewhere? could something help you feel at home when you're far away?

my final work was an amulet and talisman, offering you safety and luck. on one side of the antique locket you can find one of my etchings, made after places where i felt at home. on the other side i can write a special message for your loved ones. it is a take-away reminder of home, close to your heart
."

You can order your own necklace made to your specifications from Lisanne's shop.
Also, you can follow her blog!

wow! your friend´s idea is so great, it sounds like a beautiful idea! I would love to travel like that some day, but I do agree with her, when ever I travel some where I usually have the feeling that I´m actually at home, it´s like a new home, even if it´s only for a few days, in a completely different place...
