Just nice, pretty wrappings
We are having so much fun!
This weekend I’m on a unique trip: with my 2 sisters and mum.
Love, fun and laughter in Copenhagen!
Often I make things for others and actually most of the time for little others!
But this idea was already going through my head for a while and prefect for my size. I was inspired by her, Merrick has a great blog where she styles clothes a lot.
I transformed my t-shirt, one from Hema, by changing one sleeve and adding a pocket. And I am quite happy with the result!
Just undo the sleeve and copy that on your new fabric. Sew it back together and you are done!
A great summer drink!
Mix a bit of everything, just how much you like it, add water and you’re done, a very yummy fresh summer drink.
I was inspired by this old pin on Pinterest.
There are so many great ideas on Pinterest, I still enjoy browsing it. Another summer drink that I would like to try is this one, pinned by culy.nl also a great website. It’s in the freezer at the moment…when it’s nice I write about it later.
Today I have counted my blessings several times, and some loved ones with me. Thank you!

The 11th of May was a day when I counted my blessings. (like she does: Zilverblauw)
My oldest sister finished her studies for General Practitioner (doctor). After years of studying and a very rough period she managed to do this. We are all so proud of her, so my parents decided we would throw her a party! A relaxed and pure get-together, outside in their garden: dear friends, music and good food.
See? A nice garden, even with sun! Nice drinks, pretty flowers, a beautiful set table and great food (excellent biological catered by Jana – Deksels catering catering)
And we all missed him, at his place next to my sister… But despite this, my sister shined during her party.
So I counted my blessings.
Yesterday I planted the menu in my mini garden, a little joke of the caterer. ‘Plant it’ she said, and you will be surprised!
What a great reminder of this day! A Big thank you to everybody who helped and partied with us!!!!
I think: Blogging online enlarges your view to the world. You write about your daily things, but you also read along with others. Even if you don’t know each other in real, your thoughts are with other bloggers every once in a while. Some share happiness, some share sadness, today I join (although a day too late) MirrorMonday, initiated by Roos. She shares her braveness by looking in the mirror every Monday at RoosRustenRegelmaat (Dutch and English)
Yesterday it was the 100th times she looked in the mirror to keep seeing reality.
Roos, my thoughts are with you and your men!
Can you remember the Childhood memories blanket a few post ago?
I had some fabric left over and it was laying around for a while. Last weekend my sister planned a visit to a friend who is pregnant. She told me that she bought the book ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ and that is where the idea for this project grew. A green zipper completed the supplies, the rest I still had. I sewed an inner cushion from an old bed sheet and stuffed it with the filling of an old pillow. The pillowcase is of course fabric leftover of the baby blanket.
The baby isn’t born yet but I hope (s)he will enjoy the Hungry Caterpillar story with this pillow on his/her bed!
