the first half of January flew by
let me give you an impression...
I have a weak spot for old kitchen chairs
so you can imagine how happy I was when I found this beauty for a bargain
my collection of old English china is growing steady
and I found a lot of second hand wool sweaters, which I felted and hope to transform into bags and cushions
vintage embroidery, wooden spools, lace... I hope to use them all to spice up the cushions and bags
~ as you can see, I lost myself when taking pictures and that happened again when I made the collages ~
I cannot get enough of the pretty textures, colors and patterns
these were all patiently waiting for their picture moment, but never made it to the photo set up
however, I love how the spools and vintage handkerchiefs show their beauty in just lying there
we also celebrated the husband's birthday last weekend
and were happy to have a wonderful and delicious time with our new Canadian friends and more friends!
the macaroons are as delicious as they look, from Nadège in Toronto, thank you so much Ana
and the Swedish princess cake we made ourselves, it was our first attempt and we were pretty proud of it
I am typing this in the front room of our house
where I love the January light, our new icicles and the wonderful hyacinth!
...one more thing: I am lucky to go and visit Chicago by the end of the month, yay!
all your ideas on where to go for coffee, cupcakes, yarn or vintage goodies, your favorite stops...
I would love to know!
