Vintage étagère

I while ago I found the lovely blog of Jolijndesign; she inspired me to make this étagère. I love to collect vintage cups and plates and I’m a big fan of drinking tea and eating chocolate. Here you can see the result of this combination.

A couple of pieces from my blue ceramic collection. I buy way too many (vintage) cups, vases, plates and bowls, but find it so lovely to use different kinds of tableware. Here a part of my blue collection. I think the combination of blue and white looks great, don’t you?

Scarf start

It’s not freezing yet, so I still have time to make my scarf. I’m not really good at knitting – certainly not as good as my mom and sister – but I find it pretty relaxing to do.

Slave free

A while ago I did a few posts about the beauty of packaging, a great idea that I got from the Magdaloony blog. Today a Dutch, fair trade and slave free chocolate bar from Tony’s Chocoloney. I love the vintage look from the package and ofcourse the taste.

O, holy thrifting

It was time for thrifting today. I went to all my favourite shops to look for hidden treasures. After the fifth shop I almost gave up, but then I found this lovely Mary. I’m a big fan of holy statues; especially female ones. It’s weird habit that studying history has done with me.

Four Mainzelmännchen

I found some old toys from my mother; four Mainzelmännchen. She used to play with these little German people when she was a child. The Mainzelmännchen are now dancing on our stereo. It makes me happy, everytime I look at them.
