Love x3

today is about Love
in three different ways

first there is love to give and receive ~ to and from ~ Maureen
she sent me this wonderful heart~and~cushioncover~package because I won her give-away
look how it all perfectly matches my new knitted blanket... I love the cushions and the wooden heart

thank you so much Maureen! You are the sweetest

second there is of course the Lovely Royal Wedding today in London, GB
are you watching it? I love royal weddings

I was in Amsterdam when Willem Alexander and Máxima married in 2002
we watched the horse carriage with the royal couple from a close stand
and even saw Valentino, who designed The Dress, attending the party at the royal palace
it was an amazing day ~ and today will be as well

of course, since my blog is kind of a craftblog as well
I have to show you this knitted couple from this book, the stamps, and how about the teabags?!
all found in last Saturday's newspaper

third there is another reason this day is about love
and that is... well, kind of a personal thing
ladies I have news for you!
stay tuned, it will be revealed this Sunday...

~ Happy Royal Weekend to you! ~
~ and to the Dutch ladies: Happy Queensday tomorrow! ~
