Tulips from Holland

I receaved a lovely package from Sylvia yesterday,
She was so kind to send me a tutorial of how she makes her beautiful roses for her flowershop (
But as extra surprise she added some finished tulips to,
I thank her a lot for her kindness.
You have to visit her blog, it is so charming, especially the attic from the alcoholic!:)

HipHip Hoeraa!!!I

I have 10 followers and I want to thank them for showing their interest in me, I never had so much followers before.
Well I did not have one follower at all.
Except for my dog and my children (when they where very little)
But I kind of like it, and it certainly gives me a certain drive and energy. Maybe there will be less posting, because I really have to get on in the new house, we move in 70 days and there is still a lot to do!
Today I wanted to paint a whole room and I still am washing the walls.
hate that part!:(
Posting is also (maybe) good for practising my English(which is very bad) and also a little bit Italian. (that's even worse)
Tomorrow I will post ,to you all, a lovely welcome picture, but battery is too low at this moment!
Bye X

HipHip Hoeraa!!!

Belgian food

This is what we ate tonight, you can't have a more typical Belgian plate of food. Mmmm,
I loved it!

A table and a few magazines

I made this table all by myself and I am a little bit proud of it.
It's a little bit too big but it can go.
A few magazines where not hard to make and I love the result, just go to amazon and pick yourself some pictures, (or is this illegal??)

A scarf, a sweater and a dress for my lovely black bear.

I made these a while ago, but just wanted to post them.
Taking a picture of a black bear is as hard as taking a picture of a black cat! How do you do this?? :(

A fabulous book

I received this book last week and I enjoyed it already every day, It is really beautiful and everything in it well explained.
I tried to make this little childrens bed, but I must say "it looks easy but it is very difficult"
Mine is very clumsy but I don't mind. The matras is soft!
The description is in the book.

what a mess

Making miniatures is fun, but look at my desc!

flowers for a cold day

paper roses

I made some paper flowers today, from a tutorial from

Lesley Shepherd.

I must say that hers look much,much better.
But they give colour

The old dresser from my witch house

This is a dresser I made a long time ago for my witch house,
I used it to present some of my new pots I made. Don't look at the dust, the chair is also an old one

miniatures cabbage, carrots and tomatoes.
I have been making cabbage this evening, very dirty job but great fun. Yesterday I made the carrots while watching a movie, mmmm I love doing this

It' s snowing again today

We finally disieded to move by the end of april.
When I think of it I can cry, there is so much work that needs to be done before we move, you can not believe how much stuff we have, and the house we move in is half the size of the one we live in at the moment, and then all the restauration work of the other one and.........
