Some Springflowers

These are some pictures from tulips and muscari's. I like the bright colours of these flowers.
I made them last year when I visited the "Keukenhof". I was never been there, but I thought that when you live in Holland you have to see this famous garden for at least one time...

Strawberries and Wild Grape at the flea market

Yesterday I went to the flea market in our village. The things I was looking for I didn't found. But I went home with a lot of other special treasures!! Today I made some pictures of the first things: these two little metal shields. I think they are lovely, I really like them. They are getting a nice place in the garden to start a second life.

The candy-coloured blanket

Lately I have started to make a crochet blanket in candy spring/summer colours.
I was really inspired by the wonderful blog of Mia's Landliv:
She really makes lovely cushions, granny's and quilts.
But it takes a lot of time!!! I have to do a lot of work before it will be finished.
So I hope in about a few weeks I can put some pictures on my blog to show you the finished candy-cloured blanket!!
Have a sunny week...

A beautiful old statue of Maria

Last week I got this beautiful statue of Maria! A friend of mine called me and said: You are looking for a statue of Maria, isn't it?? Well, I've got one for you from an old lady who is cleaning up her house because she is going to move.
I was so happy when I saw this statue, I think it's beautifull!!!
It has got a little damage but it doesn't matter for me.
Now I'm going to find a nice place for it...

Can we eat these??

The last few weeks our citrus-plant has got about 10 of these fruits.
I really love it because it's beautiful to look at it and it gives me a bit of a summer-feeling (even when it's freezing!).
I wondered if we can eat these or not!!
Have a nice week,

The first deco for Eastern

Today I finally found some time to put some decoration in our house for Eastern.
I really "need" to go to a garden-center for some flowers and green stuff to make it complete.
I really like the little birds in the egg...
