The perfect little dress.

8/30/2010





Remember the cute dress I got from my grandmother? I 've got an even cuter one! This was waiting in my room when I came home. Still in the original package (which is so pretty) and never worn.

Today the weather is sad, I thought that it was going to rain so I drew this little friend.


P.S. I'm so happy! My knitting-needle-picture is on the famous decor8. I'm a big big fan of decor8, it's such a great place for looking at pretty stuff and get inspired. If you never heard of it be sure to check it out!

They finally arrived!

A little wile ago I told you that I was making postcards. They finally arrived! I ordered them via Moo and they turned out great. I'm really pleased with the result. Now they gonna travel all around the world. If you wonder why I need so many (60 in total), it's because I'm a member of postcrossing. If you like to receive snail-mail you should definitely pay a visit to their site.

Remember my washi paper tapes that I ordered from Japan. I used them to decorate some clothespins. In my next post I will show you for what you can use them.

Another one of my collections. I have many knitting needles but I just keep on buying them. I think they look great in this coffee-can which is another gift from my grandmother. I also collect vintage fabrics. Don't know what I'm gonna do with them yet, maybe I will turn them into pillow covers if I got a place of my own.

I'm a collector of vintage porcelain. Especially the pastels of Villeroy & Boch. Don't you just love these colors? I always make up stories of the people that once used these or the food that they have seen.

I went to visit my grandparents and look what I got. This little dress once belonged to my mother when she was little. You can see her on the right in the picture.

Little break.

8/11/2010



So busy lately with all sorts tidbits, I haven't got the time for posting something. I badly want to go on a holiday, but this year I don't have time or money for that. Me and the boyfriend are saving some for a big big project that I soon gonna share with you all. Meanwhile I'm enjoying some pictures of our trip from last year when we went to France. And just to have a little break I'm going to my parents for a few days.

Safe and sound.
