Hallo everyone,
Today I found these two cute little pigs,

the cutest

They are on the cover of this book,

I'm reading

I couldn't resist buying this book
and now I almost spend my whole day reading in the sun.

The other thing I did was going to the thrifth store
and found these beauty's

dutch windmill

A Dutch windmill

latest catch

And this bird with flowers.

Now I feel a little guilty doing no washing, no ironing, no cleaning, no coocking.
Ok I will prepare a meal..
after that back to the book!

oma's famous attic

I bet we mentioned the "box of Pandora" before.
Our mothers famous attic. One of our favorite places to shop.
Heleen and I regularly sniffing around looking for something we can use.
And I must say... we are rarely disappointed.
Over the years she build a wide collection of beautiful materials.
Wool, yarn, fabrics and other bits and pieces.
She sure has a good eye for beautiful things and for detail!

a touch of dutch blue

Would you also like to go shopping at oma's attic?

fabric from "oma's" famous attic

Have a lovely day or evening (depending on your time zone)
See you soon,

A sisters day,

What a nice sisterday Corry and me had!
First we drove to the thriftstore.
This Thrifthstore is in a beautifull old farm.
We wanted to take pictures to show you, but we forgot our camera.
we drove trough the Dutch country side,
it's such a beautiful weather today,
 to a cute living store where we boughth the calander for the year 2012


We ended with a late lunch in the cutest little old town Heusden.
Again without camera!

Meanwhile our cat 'Bear' spend the day sleeping on his my favorive quilt.
(After chasing and hunting all night he enjoyed being home alone.)


I hope you also had a nice day?

Just heard on the radio the weather is going to be great this weekend.
Time to swim? No but a bbq would be yummie.

Here are some 'swimming' artworks from the kids in my class,



Have a nice day!
