inspiration: glass slides from the sixties

I've found these glass slides from the sixties a while ago at a thriftshop. All pictures were taken in Italy. Love how you get a sense of that era while looking at those slides. We'll be spending our holidays in Italy aswell this summer, so looking forward to our holidays!

incoming: summertime!

I received this summertime mail from Mirjam. She crocheted a summer bag and she had put the bags and envelope inside the bag. A cool idea! So if you are looking for me, I'm at the pool, swimming!

Outgoing: paper flower wreath

Since Ania was getting married, I've made a paper flower wreath as a wedding present. That always seems very romantic to me, a flower wreath. Ania had written she was going to wear a flower wreath in her hair at her wedding, that's so romantic! I wanted to try if I could make a wreath out of tissue paper. Well, I could and it turned out to be really lovely! It fitted perfectly in a mailbox size box. I've made a drawing aswell wishing it could rain down love. Well, if it was raining down love, I would be the first to dance in the rain. But I guess most people would want to do that.

Incoming: from Margrit

As a thank you for sending her a vintage magazine with a picture of a reading woman, Margit sent me this lovely package. She put it all in a mailbox size box which she decorated with pages from an old biology book. She sent me these vintage cardboard bobbins, I love and collect those. She also sent me some postcards, a schoolbook and some stamps. There was also a teabag included, but I drank that one straight away :-) because it smelled so lovely of cinnamon.

incoming: stationary heaven

On instagram Catherine who is a really busy mom of eight (yes, eight!!!) (let's give her some huge respect for that!!!), had done a huge stationary haul. She wanted to send some to me, even though I live overseas and shipping costs are quite high. How sweet is that! And look at the amazing stationary she sent me! If you are looking for me, I'm in stationary heaven right now.

Outgoing: Liebsteraward

I was nominated for the Liebster award by Carin from Moose travelling. Ehmm, that was way back in february. Anyway, I think it's ever so sweet from Carin to nominate me. But it's an award that when you accept it, you are supposed to nominate ten others bloggers. And that's just not me, I'm akward like that. Don't get me wrong, I do read lots of other blogs. But I feel quite okay just doing my blog thing, and doing it my way. So an award you can only receive by nominating other blogs, is not really an award is it? But since it sort of feels special that Carin thought of me and she was nominated herself, I've sent her a price. What's an award without a price! And a great excuse to use my vintage ledgers to write a letter on!
