Just pictures....

Pictures .....I would love to post more often, but I the fact is I don't have time, or just forget.
Still I would love you to see a glimpse of my last year in pictures.

In May my sister and I went to Rimini, Italy. Where we went for holiday when we were children and later when we were young adults. It had been 27 years when we were there the last time.

The street where we stayed the very first time in 1974

Market in Rimini City

Then in July I had my front and backgarden renovated

Carved a lovely Jack o' Lantern for Halloween

Took a moment (as did the whole world) to remember the people who died from the terrorist attacs in Paris
Three lighted yars in my front garden.
Liberte, Fraternite, Egalite

A few days later there was a National minute of silence as well.
The advertising screens at work showed a burning candle.

And now I'm all ready for Christmas. I have time of work for 2 and a half weeks. Bliss!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a Very Happy New Year!!!

Spring, again...

So Spring is upon us and so much of my New Years resolution
 of updating my Blog a bit more frequently.
But I'm here now and I have moved on from my
 "NoSnowThisWinter" dissapointment.
Now I'm enjoying the soft, green haze that appears on
 the trees and bushes.
In my neighbours garden a blossom tree is showing it's pink lushious flowers
and will soon be confettiyng the whole street.

Also (in the back garden of an other neighbour, there is a pear tree in full bloom.

In my livingroom I changed the warm winter decor into fresh and springy!
I bought a new cover for my Ektorp Sofa.
The colour is called Duck Egg.

Please ignore the mess on the coffeetable,
 I was just in the middle of something when I took this picture.

Between my fulltime job and keeping my house tidy and neat,
I (ofcourse) crocheted a lot.
Here are some creations;


For the TeenyWeenyDesign Etsy Shop;
Yosd/LittleFee items

Blythe items;

And last but not least, I have ordered a new doll. 
Even when I was on a dolly diet!!
It is a doll from the talented dollmaker Connie Lowe.
The doll's name is Sprocket "Glee".
I itch to make all kinds of wonderful hats, shoes and many more things!
Here's an example how she looks;

I'm still waiting for her to be delivered and then I have to do the face makeup.
(this made the doll a lot cheaper) 
I'll make her in a little redhead with freckles!

Keeping you informed how I get along with this......later!

Early Autumn Walk....

Today my youngest sister and I took a  walk through a nearby piece of woodland called Amelisweerd (in Bunnik, Utrecht)
The weather was wonderful and  the scenery too! Everything was still very green and at first we mentioned it was not autmny enough, but soon we began to see all kinds of beautiful mushrooms everywhere.
I Always love to see how the sunlight shines through the leaves!
After about an hour we visited a little cafe.
Coffee  and date and walnut cake on the left, carrotcake and tea on the right.
On the way back to our bicycles we took a peak at the organic flower and vegetable garden. Stupid enough I was so in "ahw" , I forgot to make an overall picture
Just part of it
When we walked past a few rows of chard (snijbiet) I saw how the sun set the red stems alight and of course I did take a picture of this! Isn't it amazing? No colour enhancement or photoshop!!
It was a lovely morning indeed!!
