Sunday Goodies

welcome to our sunny Sunday

featuring the Miami Beach blanket in the making

and our lucky thrift store catches yesterday; cabinet, table cloth, cup and saucer and teapot

the table cloth has a Christmas related design

but the colors look so much like spring to me

matching the Miami Beach blanket

the cabinet ~ we might paint it in a fresh pastel blue, or green may be, what do you think?

do you paint thrift store furniture or do you prefer to keep it in the original color?

the China teapot in all it's glory

matching our new wallpaper accent

and I must admit that I have been working on the Miami Beach blanket

all week

I just had to add more rows every day

and I love it


happy Sunday to you too


  1. Oooh don't paint the cabinet, it's so pretty the way it is. Your blanket looks amazing, by the way.

  2. Ik verf altijd alles, heerlijk. Of het moet echt prachtig hout zijn maar ik hou erg van fris, alles fris. Ben ik het zat .... gewoon weer een ander kleurtje er over :-) Ik vind je kastje zo erg mooi maar als ik het moest verven werd het mint groen, zo vrolijk en goed te combineren met veel andere kleuren. Ik ben benieuwd of je het gaat verven en zo ja, welke kleur :-)


  3. Going fast!! and coming along beautifully...

  4. Mooie foto's uit je nieuwe huis Maaike! Je deken is prachtig! Waar haal jij toch de tijd vandaan om zoveel moois te maken.

    Een gezellige nieuwe week!

  5. I usually say 'paint' it, but it does look so beautiful in the sun.

    How lucky you are to have a lovely sunny sunday, it's been raining, sleeting and hailing here today.....

  6. Jouw kastje staat mooi bij de vloer zo... Maar, ik denk.... Blauw! My favorite colour. Mooi pastel blauw.
    Je deken groeit prachtig. Verleidelijk hè, als je aan een mooi haakproject bezig bent? Dan wil je blijven haken!
    Groetjes uit een regenachtig NL, terwijl de ochtend wel écht Lente leek.

  7. Looks like you've had a fun weekend! Lovely china :-) Great progress with your blanket too!
    The sideboard looks good as it is - but with your special touch anything is possible :-)

  8. Positively swooning over your blanket! What a thrift magic you have gathered. Normally I would just go 'Paint'without further thought, but that sideboard seems quite beautiful in the original state. Enjoy it all.

  9. The blanket is looking gorgeous and I really love that china teacup, the colours and designs are so beautiful and delicate. I need to get out thrifting I think!

  10. Hi Maaike, when your home looks lovely bathed in that sunlight, and especially like the teapot your found, very elegant. The blanket is gorgeous you are a very clever girl. As for the cupboard I think I would paint it blue, nice soft blue!!! but whatever you do I am sure it will look great.

  11. Lovely finds, the teacup, saucer and teapot especially. The cabinet is lovely as it is. Painted in a pastel mint or blue it would go so well with the wall and wallpaper too. Oh such a difficult decision to make :)

  12. lovely blanket. I really wish I could crochet!
    the cabinet.... what a great find! I would leave it just as is. I've been looking for one of those, too!


~ sweet thank you for your lovely words ~
