The fun of cheap and the joy of handmade
About as much as I love to buy beautiful high end design or expensive, but carefully made handmade items every now and then, I love the surprise of finding something nice and super cheap at a discount store that's mainly packed with the most hideous stuff. (So maybe the conclusion here should be that I just like to buy, whatever it is... Shame on me!)
Like this super kawaii little children's stool/stair, found at one of those Dutch discount stores where you can find cheap 'practical stuff' like cleaning rags and socks (and where you were terrified to be seen by classmates as a kid, but fortunately we grow up! ;)), but sometimes also other little gems like this.
And what about that lovely little painting? That's made by Octavie of course! And no, that's not the kind of thing you'll find in a cheap discount store, nor in a posh design shop... It's the kind of thing that makes me realize why I still love handmade best!

Superkawai indeed! Uit welke winkel komt dat krukje? Is een ideaal cadeautje voor m´n kleine nichtje!
