3 year blog giveaway

Looking at my older posts a few days ago, I was surprised that it is almost 3 years that I have been blogging now, And I liked looking at a few pictures that had been tucked away into my blog archive,
The puppy Milan, our children at easter so much smaller than now, the IItalian villa from the holiday.
there were lots of things that have happend without any blogging about them of course but still I liked my little diary. On the 23 of march it will be 3 years from my first posting, this is the first picture I posted.

To celebrate this I want to organise a give away ,

I want to give away my blue  bear, 

All you have to do is leave me a message and link the giveaway picture to your blog

This is the picture!

This is one of the first bears I have dyed, but I did not have anough dyed mohair to make all her dodyparts so she ended up with a yellow legging,
but she did not mind, after a few lessons at the Antwerp Academy for fashion she made herself a lovely mohair dress with a yoyo flower on it.
Happy as she is she is looking for a new home and a name.
Please make a comment with a name and I will draw a winner on the 23 of march!

Good luck!! 

Thanks for all your enthousiasm, but if you want to make a chance in winning the bear you will have to paste the picture, with a link to the give away post, on your blog though!

Sweet Bunny(adopted)

Hi, I have been playing with a new pattern and did some dying and I loved it!
The little one that came out is one of my favorites now and he will stay with me I guess,
I love him to much to sell him.

the last winter pictures( Let us hope so)

Milan is the only one that doesn't complaine, maybe he doesn't realise that he gets more walks in warmer times.

hide the mess with a curtain

I am pleased with myself because I had an idea last week for hiding the mess behind a  peace of fabric.
We have a few animals that live with us and their stuf is not always so decorative and takes a lot of place, this was bothering me .
So When looking in my drawers  I found a piece of fabric that I loved and I was not using it.
Perfect for a curtain.
And I love the result,
We live here  for 6 months now and there is still a lot to do, but not all at once.
I am pleased with the small change and next week something else.
I long for the sun, that will give me more energy to work in the house.
I will post a few pictures from the same room before we lived here.
We have worked already a lot!!

NO, no more snow!!

NO, no more snow!!I do not want it. This morning when we woke everything was covered again!!Just when we started to think that spring was in the air, I am not in the mood for it. This is the thirt time it starts all over again.
And nobody was expecting it!
We had a 1000 km traffic jam in Belgium. I guess that would be 750 miles +_??
That is 3 times the lenght of our country!!
It had never happened before.

And I long to start working in the garden!
We still have to design it!
Maybe we should concentrate on that!
So sorry for the bad spelling!
