Some instructions, how to make 'perspotjes'.

Add water


Fill to the brim.

And press.

It is easy, you see :-)
I got this tutorial in my mailbox the other day;
didn't knew what 'perspotjes' were, pressed soil
for the seeds.
These were made by Billie in the greenhouse of
her favourite uncle.

I've got a sunshine award by sweet Alessandra!

The beans etc...

The beansprouts grow like hell, I'm afraid that is
because they need more sunlight; should I take
the risk to put them outside in bigger containers?
They say untill half May there's chance of night frost :-(

When you have a closer look, you can see tiny sprouts
of sunflower together with the beans, to save place.

The beans are coming out, one week ago!


Hollyhock on the left corner.
I need to move very urgently, these plants
need light & space!!

My new home.

Hello everybody, may I introduce you to Stella,
the cat downstairs from my new home.
I can't show you any interesting pictures yet,
so I took some photos of the Wisteria that is growing from
the courtyard to the second floor; the blue sky photo
with the blackbird nest is taken from the kitchen window;
the babybirds have fledged last sunday :-)
There's also a huge Virginia Creeper on the other side
of the building, I will take some photos when he's got more
leaves; I guess they both need a few warm&sunny days more.
The drawing on the wall is an image of a little ghost :-)

Some random pictures of my room.

Found this embroiderie in the drawers last week;
it belongs to a pincushion series from a year ago;
for some unknown reason it disappeared amongst
my fabrics, and it slipped my mind.
I made the cushion this morning and hope it will
meet his new owner very soon :-)

Have a nice weekend everybody.

Reparation day.

I had to carry out some repairs today, you know,
the usual stuff, sewing on some buttons, replacing a zipper
that doesn't work anymore etc... not really exciting.
Too bad this gorgeous 1950 sewing storage is not mine,
I saw it by accident on aapc today,
you can have a bid if you like on ebay and
see more photos.
Isbells was on the radio, love this song :-)
Another cushion.

Everything is ok.

Do you remember this one?
It arrived with the post this morning,
all the way from Iran :-)
So much beauty&delicacy meeting together on
this little box; the magic inside is saying:
' Everything is ok! '
Could be some kind of a spell, no?

By the way,seems that my table was waiting for
this little box to come, they match perfectly :-)

went to the park to see the magnolia trees,
made some labels,
and while I had my sunday afternoon nap,
the first sprouts have come out, finally ! :-),
the avocado stone's still unchanged.
Did you know magnolias date from prehistoric
times, some 20 million years ago!!
(one of my favourite movies :-)

Katleen's garden.


Only 5min. walking from my new home :-)
That tree on the first photo is an old pear.
