Happy 2011!

Wishing you all the very best for next year....

I had a great ending of the year yesterday with my bestie, and lots of presents!! All little vintage treasures which we both love so much... I might show those next year but here's the beautiful tree with the presents for now. I'm looking forward already to the next presents-swap ;-)

Have fun you all tonight.....

I've been following Ingrid's blog for some months now. Every day i'm curious to see what beautiful pics will be there, what she'll have come up with now (she's creative!) or if she found new vintage treasures... As if all this isn't enough, she's also too good for this world! Every week she's doing a swap with one or a few of her readers! I love the whole swapping idea and some weeks ago i got lucky!! Yay! And oh what a nice surprise to find the package in my mailbox!
The stuff inside couldn't have been more perfect! As if Ingrid knew me...
There were beautiful vintage postcards, a 1969-teatowel, 2 of Ingrid's selfmade paper birds but what made my day was the wooden doll! Love at first side, and now she's showing off between my other wooden dolls!
Ingrid, thanx again, your generosity is really appreciated! As can be read on your blog... ingthings brighten up my day :-)

Box on a visit.

My friend Cy found this beautiful tin box in the house of her grandma. We're always on the lookout for nice vintage stuff, boxes like this one make our hearts beat a little bit faster...
And! What made this find even better: the box was filled with buttons!! Yay!

The box stayed for some days while i picked the buttons i fancy and then went back to Cy!

Seems like winter finally began here! I can't seem to warm up so only one thing left to do: put the woodfire on & cuddle up in the sofa in front of it! I've already baked cakes and made marzipan (bf is coming home laters from a weekend with the guys so a little party is on its place...), so time for some lazy sunday-behaviour now!

And dreaming of nice warm days...

Time out

I spent last weekend in the lovely Ardennes with a part of my big family... We filled the weekend with walks, boardgames, lots of chatting & catching up, playing with the kids, drinking bubbles on bf & me being together for 15 years (YAY!), listening to music, eating chocolate and cookies, and... some more chatting!!

I'm a big fan of scandinavian designs.. no wonder i love the brand Isak!! Everything looks so colorful, funny & yummy :-) Everyone should have a little bit of Isak in their house to brighten up your days!! Be sure to check the blogs, a great place for inspiration...

Lisboa, i love you!

My number one on my list of favourite cities! I knew it the first time i was there, and it was proved again last week! Lisbon feels a bit like home & there's always something new that surprises me around every corner or every little alley you walk into...
Some things that make me happy there... There's sun! Lots of sun! Artsy peeps around! Shops, shops & more shops! Historical buildings! Lots of lovely terraces and good places to eat a descent but cheap meal! The beach is around the corner! Same for the mountains! A huge flea market twice a week: heaven for me! Lots of old stuff around everywhere! Yummy cakes & desserts everywhere! Starbucks! Good vibes! Oh did i mention good weather yet??

Bf & i decided we need more of this city so i think there's a new trip coming soon :-)
Check for yourself!!
