Making Wednesday work

Just look at those pretty beet leaves! Aren’t they lovely? I took this picture at my friend Renske’s allotment yesterday. I was helping her out with weeding and building a trellis. Today’s upcoming Green Thumb Thursday’s post will be all about... read more

Today’s pin is short but sweet. I’ve been busy all day with really exciting things that I can’t share with the blog just yet but stay tuned and all will be revealed. I really like doing these little origami tutorials when I’m short on time.... read more

The last two days were like Summer’s already here and I’m loving it. I’ve been outside in the garden almost non-stop, pottering around, pulling weeds, enjoying the sunshine, hanging out with cat Lola, knitting, and in the evening: cooking up some... read more

Moppe makeover

Moppe makeover

The project I did today must be one of most pinned projects on Pinterest. That probably makes sense: it’s quick, easy, cheap and the result is a total makeover. Ok, maybe it’s not a total makeover but the end result is a lot less boring than what you start... read more
