New Friends

after three weeks of travelling, joy and real life hugs

my parents fly back to Europe

our home will be a lot more empty

well empty...

let me introduce you to my new friends

this cute kite boy on a lamp stand

all made of wood, I think from the fifties

a large horse that can use a refreshing haircut

and little miss red cap, holding her purse and my tape dearly ~ with many thanks to Ana

with these eggs, Easter sneaked into our home too

I found the eggs at the local thrift store

not just a few, but a vase full

pure joy to me

and smiling back at me from the kitchen table

while I dream of seeing our families again later this year...


  1. Mm...afscheid nemen is altijd het minst leuk! Maar herinneringen zijn fijn, waardevol en mooi! vondsten zijn ook fijn! Ik vind de vaas met eitjes helemaal geweldig :-)


  2. Your shopping is so sweet. Always sad to see family leave though.

  3. Ma che belli!!!! I colori sonon abbinati davvero molto bene....e i giochini li adoro!!!!1 Baci Anto

  4. Very cheery!!!! Love the little girl with the purse. All very sweet of them to keep you company, especially since your family must travel home! March is just around the corner and Easter not far behind.
    Have a great day!

  5. your new friends are pretty sweet. I know how hard it is when parents leave. I used to go through it when we lived in Vancouver, it was sad. It always took me a couple of days to get back to normal.

  6. Wat een mooie spulletjes heb je gevonden Maaike. Om vrolijk van te worden!

    Een gezellige dag!
