Five birds and a sweet gift,

I found these 5 little birds some time ago.
They were in the drawer waiting for the right moment to come out.

5 birds found new place

Guess spring is the best time!
But first the gift!
Corry and me are spoiled by Virginia from Portugal.

thanks for the lovely name sugestions. Rosy was mentioned several times.
I like Rosy. And now that I look at her,I find her a real rosy girl.
So Rosy is her name.


I put cherry blossom in a vase.
Do you think its to early for Easter decorations??

I blame it on the weather, still lovely sunshine here!
 And the forcast for upcomming weekend is 20 celsius on saterday! Not bad!
Again tulips on my kitchen table, yellow this time.

And while sitting in a sunny corner of the garden, out of the wind,
I crochet some flowers.

A very good day to you!

Treasures and a doll

Hello, how are you today?
 Did you have a lovely weekend? We did.
Yesterday we had some nice spring weather. Heleen and I went to a fleamarket.
 I'll show you some treasures in a minute.
First let me introduce you to my latest new friend.


She came on saterday and I don't have a name for her yet.
 Maybe you can help me by finding her one?
Please feel free to leave a suggestion.
She is a real sweetheart who loves to drink tea.
And she wears a dress made from one of my latest purchases
Now back to the fleamarket..
 It's always a surprise if we find something useable we like.
 And we did. Yesterday was a good day!
Heleen will show you her catch in a next post.
She found two perfect embroideries, they most probably end up in a bag.
And how about this beauty...will she end up in a bag??
It's a large embroidery with birds, butterflies, plants and mushrooms.
Almost too pretty to cut into pieces
I also found this sweet blue pepper and salt couple.
they look beautiful in my kitchen.
And so does this small dish.

Not bad, don't you agree?
let's see what next week will bring.
Have a good day!
Groeten, Corry

The Last Knit

You've probably already seen this,
but I thought I share it anyway.
Beware, knitting can be quite dangerous!

Now I must hurry, Heleen will be here in a minute to pick me up.
We're going treasure hunting at a fleamarket.
Have a lovely sunday!
Groeten, Corry

Friday morning,

It's friday morning

I had to do some shopping too.
The sun was shining so 'hup' on my bike to buy new kitchen towels in the Hema.

Than on my bike again to the market to buy these fresh anemones,


And at last a quick visit at the fish stall on the market to buy fresh hot kibbeling for lunch.

New stock..

I went shopping in the Attic and look what I found!
A basket full of delicious colors.
What shall I make of this lovely wool..
I've actually only hooked grannies up to now.
Maybe it's time for something new?
Let's see what I can find in my book.
All different block patterns..

Maybe something fashionable


I bet it was in the 70's!


But, don't think I can find a victim who is willing to wear this!
I can go crochet flowers for my hearts on a string..

Yes, flowers are fun..
or crochet grannies, they're fun too!


Sigh..tough choice..
Or I do both!
Have a lovely day.
Groeten, Corry

was another beautiful spring day.
A perfect day to go visit the fairytale forest in the Efteling
with Luca and Sofie.

With the park almost in our backyard we are regular visitors.
So Luca knows her way around.
She loves the wolf and the seven kids.
Here mother goat leaves the house to go shopping.
According to Luca she's going to the hema.
moeder geit
The wolf awaits his chance.
poor kids!
Another favorite fairy, Hansel and Gretel.
Especially the cake and the cookies have Luca's attention.

After a few hours strolling in the park it was time to go home again.
Bye bye efteling, we will come back soon!!
