a good start on a rainy day

It is raining outside and the garden is getting greener and greener. Almost an explosion of nature out there! This morning I started my rainy day with some feel good items :) I made a strawberry-pear shake and had a few slices of our homemade bread (with dill and lime). A good start of the day accompanied by two new messages. I got one from my mom in Turkey, she wrote about her adventures in the new land. And I got a sweet happy letter from Anne (Breda)!

a message from Doesburg, Kazachstan and Germany

I found a nice package of new messages on my doormat today! A very cheerful envelope by Rinske. She also sent me some nice beads for our lovely little one  and a handmade watercolour picture of our last ultrasound! So sweet!!
The red envelope with the Scandinavian horse is from Katrin (Germany), a new pen friend :) And last but not least a message from Eugenia (Kazachstan), one that has travelled many weeks to get here ;)

back to the 1950's

We've spent the night at the famous SS Rotterdam. A ship that sailed for several years between Rotterdam and New York after WOII. There are some great photo's in the halls of the ship showing us how it once used to be like. How impressive must it have been to arrive in New York after so many days at sea and see those amazingly high buildings rise from the horizon!

♥ sunny garden

Oh what a lovely sunny and relaxing day we've had! We enjoyed the sun in our lovely garden, moved some new grown plants, we weeded the garden and we sowed some wildflowers! Every time we're in our garden we realize how much we appreciate our own green space  In the afternoon I made some homemade bread and a zucchini soup, our first lunch outside! Fiep loves to roll on the fresly cut grass, sweetheart.

new messages on a pile

After a busy week I found a pile of new messages on my desk. I hope I can reply all of them in this upcoming week :) A nice message from Anne (Breda), one from Steffi (Germany), one from Hanna (Japan) and a very pretty handwritten one from Anni (Finland). I love the smell of coffee on Anni's letter :)!

A SKY A DAY goes Niche

This last week I've been working pretty hard to make my 365 days project (A SKY A DAY) presentable. I'm very happy with the result and I really want to thank my dear friend Suus for having my project in her fabulous flowershop Niche. The project isn't finished yet, not untill the 20th of July but these 281 photo's are done! I really love the blue and grey shades all together. It works pretty well in her nice shop.
