Happy mail!

Here's part one of the happy mail i've found in my mailbox lately!
The lovely parcel i won with Severien's giveaway, beautiful yarn, cute handwarmers which i'm using already, a bunch of buttons and an old picture! Thank you Severien, me happy!

Mette was so nice to sent me some of this beautiful craftpaper! Her offer came out of the blue and it still surprises me that there are so many friendly people in this blogworld... Thank you so much Mette!

Did you hear from Hellicopter yet? I discovered the cute stuff a while ago and finally threated myself with some beautiful magnets! Love love love the owls!! And i also couldn't resist the nerdy girls :)
Go check out Helke's shop!

Lisbon street-art

Some beautiful art i've spotted on the Lisbon streets and walls.
Much more then visiting a museum, i love to search for these pieces of art everywhere in a city!

I really need to make a big "happy mail"-blogpost, so much beautiful mail arrived in my mailbox, thanks to all of you that spoiled me!!

Color swap

A while ago Vibeke organised another swap, this one was really 'my thing'... a color swap!
The sweet Christina turned out to be my swap-partner and sent me this great parcel, really meeting my taste! There was even washi tape which i'm addicted to!
Poor Christina is still waiting for her color parcel to arrive, it's been standing on my closet in the corridor for some weeks now, waiting to go to the mail office with! (i think it will need more stamps so better be sure and go to the office...)
I promise i'll make work of it very soon Christina!!

° Last weekend was a weekend out with the ladies! We went to Leuven and had lots of fun! Certainly to be continued!!
° We're going to our beloved Lisboa again in some days, can't wait!
° I'm searching for nice christmaswishes (for the cards), but not the usual.. anyone any advise?
Don't forget to enter my giveaway! It's open for everyone.
I'll pick a winner when we get back form Lisbon!

A little giveaway...

We're almost december, the biggest presents-month of the year, so i think that deserves a little giveaway!
I'm a fool for these wooden christmas decorations, i keep buying them in the thriftstore. Somehow these little dolls cheer me up and i get really excited if i find a special one.
I figured since i've got so many of them it would be nice to share some.
 Therefore a little giveaway!
You'll get the ones that are on the first 2 pictures but i'll add some more, let's say around 15 happy faces :)
Want to take a chance? Simply leave a comment, that's all!
I'll pick a winner on tuesday 11th of december...
* Edit: this giveaway is open for everyone! No matter where you live...

Happy mail!

Some weeks ago i received lovely snail mail from Ruchama, she doesn't have a blog but writes all these beautiful letters to people. I'm following her on Instagram and it looks like letter-heaven :)
We met through Marlou's sticky stuff swap and since we both love to write letters we'll continue to do so! (she's 20 times faster than me though...)
Bf is coming home in a bit! Yay! I have to go working now unfortunately but will go home this evening with a big smile!
Have a good week!

Thrifted treasures

Some months ago my friend and me had a saturday full of thrifting planned! In the morning we went to garage sales spread over a nearby village (we loved those garage sales!!), had lunch while we were driving cause there was no time to loose :) , and in the afternoon we visited some thriftstores and also a lady who sells all kind of old stuff in the barns behind her house. And those barns were filled up to the roof!! We went kind of crazy there...
Here are some treasures i found that day, oh and those wonderful tins? The lady of the barns gave them for free!! She obviously didn't know what they are worth :)
Have a good weekend all of you! Here it's kind of a lonely one.. bf is away with the guys for a weekend of gaming (playstation)! But the lonely ladies of the guys are going to cheer eachother up this evening, so yay!!

Lovely walk in the forest

Today was a really nice sunday. It started with a relaxing morning at home, don't you just love those sunday mornings with a long breakfast and afterwards some hanging around doing everything and nothing.  And this morning, when i looked outside, the morning really had gold in the mouth as we say! The early sunlight gave all our trees this wonderful golden look. ♥
This afternoon we made a beautiful autumn walk with friends, with lots of laughter & talks.
We enjoyed all the magical colors and mushrooms and the smell of autumn...
Afterwards we had some deliscious pancakes and mint tea.

A little trip

Totally out of the blue, bf and i decided to make a little trip on thursday and friday. We booked a hotel in Best, close to Eindhoven and the only thing we looked up were local thriftstores :)
We had fun, found good treasures in the thriftstores and look at the nice colorful chairs they have there! I also love all the wooden furniture they've made, like the table!
On friday we've visited Nijmegen, did some good shopping and threated ourselves with some deliscious pancakes... mmmmm!!
And ofcourse i visited the Tiger shop and left with a bag full of cute stuff  :)
I'm about to follow a course of patchwork with a friend, how exciting!! I already have some ideas of what i want to make...

Some weeks ago i received happy colorful mail from sweet Barbara! Always a little party in my mailbox :) Thank you!
And a new necklace in my shop...
Have a good monday!
