This is such sad news, I have quietly followed this blog for many years. I will continue to find inspiration here but will miss her brilliant contribution to the design world and her soft words.

Oh nee, wat ontzettend verdrietig... Gecondoleerd.




Tweemaal – jaren geleden – heb ik Loraine mogen ontmoeten in Amsterdam; de eerste keer met nog twee andere bloggers (Irene/Bloesem en Marieke/Treats and treasures). En ook nog in de Wilhelminastraat in Amsterdam.


Ben erg geschrokken van het bericht. Sterkte met het verlies.


Groet,

Sia

Loraine said...

Dear all,

thank you for your compassion and sympathy..
Loraine passed away due to a heart attack, followed by severe braindamage..
she was held in a coma for a week to see if there was any chance she could recover, but the damage was so widespread that she never woke up again..

on monday the 13 of july '15 she was lay to rest, in her beloved antwerp

Innige deelneming met het verlies van u lieve zus.
Ik was een half jaar haar poetshulp, samen hebben we leuke gesprekken gehad.
spijtig dat ik ze niet meer heb kunnen zien na mijn vakantie, we hadden nog zoveel om over te babbelen.

Het ga je goed Loraine, ik ben blij dat ik je heb mogen leren kennen en wie weet tot later

Nazara said...

Oh...
I'm crying...
I'm crying so much...
I loved her. She had such a pure heart.
Such a sensitive soul, my god.
What a big space she's leaving.
I have been following her for years.
She inspired me so much.
She made me in a big part, the creative person that I am now.
I can't believe that she is gone.
Once, I bought her a scarf.
It became my most precious object.
I will always have her in my heart.

My favorite blog, my favorite eyes...
A peaceful white and clean space.
Please, keep this space.
Keep it for us.
I will always come back.
She will always be alive.

With love.
