thank you for the sweet comments on the previous posts
you sure know how to brighten my days!
this is a little Dutch hug for you ~ smile
last week we finally got our couch
and it makes me very happy to see my Amsterdam~made cushion cover and crochet blanket on it
I have been busy organizing and decluttering our house
that is how it works for me;
the more things are organized, the more room there is in my head for creativity
after all the cleaning and organizing we went out for a little walk
it is unusually warm for this time of the year, Canadians tell us
we enjoy it a lot though
I am showing you the poncho my mom and I made together two years ago
she sewed it together, I added the blanket stitch, stars and wooden details
with so many leafs on the ground
we can almost picture what it will look like in a few weeks from now with snow...
back home we enjoy a nice cup of tea and little treats
in our lives full of 'firsts' here in Canada
we had a joyful 'first' last night; Canadian friends came over to our place for dinner
a good reason for me to try out a new recipe and bake mini lemon coconut cakes
such a wonderful evening, such delicious cakes!
and to finish this post
the husband got me this sweet pretty rose
I miss the pretty Dutch flower shops at every street corner
so this rose is a real treat and it is very precious to me
we are ready for a new week!
~ how was your weekend? ~
