More new things

Just a little time for a splurge of creativity today .
I've made another birdhouse yesterday and took the pictures this morning.
                                                               Birdhouse Blue Delft

Along with a flowergarland which has all the colours of Spring in it.
I'm off on my bicycle to fetch some stamps to send a birdhouse to
Middlesex, UK. (Thanks Rachel)
And post one other to someone in the Netherlands.
I also made a casing for my handcreme tin, which does look a lot smarter in the interior.

Later today something not so happy and colourful; I'm going to a funeral. The daughter of a colleague died a few days ago. She was only 38 and will be sadly missed. I light a candle for Ingrid, who leaves behind a husband an two young children.


  1. Ik had het al gezegd, maar ik zeg het nog een keer; je huisjes zijn geweldig. Leuk dat je ook een blog begonnen bent. Ik kom vaker bij je langs.

  2. Your birdhouse is so pretty I love it!

  3. Hoi Adriana,

    Dank je wel voor je enthousiaste reactie op mijn blog. Wat een prachtige haakwerken maak jij! Zo mooi de guirlande en het vogelhuis. Ik ben eigenlijk van de zomer pas begonnen met haken en vind het soms nog erg moeilijk, maar ik hou vol. Wanneer ik jouw vrolijke creaties zie des te meer.

    Een gezellige avond!


  4. Thank you for visiting me today! Your blog is delightfully darling! I love your sweet to follow you! hugs.

  5. What beautiful work you do Adrianne :D That flower garland is delightful and full of Spring promise. I hope you will be able to publish some of your patterns too (on Etsy?) so that some of us can make our own birdhouses and garlands :0)

  6. Thanks for the kind words. Perhaps I will make patterns in the future. Because English is not my native tongue, translating it in other (two different styles) languages is quite difficult.
    For now I only sell the finished product.

  7. I love these, especially your Delft birdhouse! Which yarn did you use for the project? I have some projects brewing and would love to use the same colours, if I may..?

    I just found your blog via Pinterest, have subscribed and am about to go trawling through soaking up your inspiration. Love it!
