Sunshiny Days



I've been quite crafty the last couple of weeks. Even though the weather tempts us to go outside a lot, I still get some creating done. One of my projects was our camper van oldtimer...


My love did the outside (repaint and striping) and I did the inside. It was such a fun project, 'cause the thing looked terrible! Now check out the inside...


We bought new foam rubber and I made new cases with IKEA fabric. We made a new table and I really love the yellow flower tablecloth I stapled on it. A few picture frames here and there, my first crochet garland and a few curtains, and now it's our own cozy holiday home. We are leaving for Germany on thursday. Can't wait...


This guy visited me last saturday and it was funny, since he posed for me for about 15 minutes. Sometimes he would fly of and then instantly return. It felt like he was watching me as well. Doesn't he look extraordinary?? I love dragonflies...


My dahlia's started to bloom finally! It took about 4 months after I'd put them in the ground, but I must say, it was worth the wait. They look so beautiful and very colorful in our front yard. The vegetables in the back yard are producing nicely and I never thought I would enjoy gardening as much as i do. I'm slowly turning into my mother...


Before I leave again, some colorful craft and homy pic's. I love our pink laundry in the yard... So lucky I have girls! And I'm happy to say I started to enjoy crochet again. Have some projects on the go.

Enjoy the sunny holidays! See you later...

Color Bomb Stool Part Deux

Finally! That's a word I use often... The stool is done after 6 months of postponing. I do very much love the result.




Seeing these pictures makes me even happier!! Such bright happy colors. Should use these for more stuff. A pillow maybe?? Must think about that...


This is what our hallway looks like now, and yes, we do still have a house phone. And use it also! I've always loved the Orla Kiely pattern and just put some pictures from books and magazines in Ikea frames. The stool matches perfectly is you ask me... Now we can have long telephone calls in style!


Enjoy the sun today!!

A Little Something

Hello again! Just wanted to show you some pictures of what I'm doing.


The kawaii coffee table is done! I really like it. It's colorful and fun. I just used pages from a Kawaii book I bought while living in Thailand. Why just look in a book every once in a while when you can use it like this too? It really brightens up the living room (as if that was necessary).Varnished it 3 times. Hope it'll be enough...


This is what I'm working on right now. I really felt like some crochet. My hallway needs a stool to sit on while using the telephone. Remember this one?? In that particular post I mentioned wanting to do a round stool as well... Well, now, about 6 months later, I finally decided it was time. I like Color Bombing anything. I used to have a bit of trouble making big crochet circles. They always tend to start looking hexagonal when growing. But I'm proud to say this one is a perfect circle. Hope I'm able to show you my results soon!


Enjoy your day!
