It has been a while since I've been here. Finally we are having lovely weather here in the Netherlands and last week it felt like summer. We were able to have dinner outside, spending evenings in the garden and working in the garden .
We also started with something that has been on our wishlist for quite some time; a bit of a make over in the living room. Today we were busy with a new floor in the living room, kitchen and hallway. It's almost finished:).And than there will be a new couch, new comfy chairs, a coffee table and I have to paint an old panelled closet. It took me a while to pick a color but I finally decided to paint it in a shade of frosted blue. A pale shade of blue almost blue-grey. After weeks of making plans it is fun to be busy and to see our work in progress. I will post photos once we're finished.
That's why I have not been around. Sorting out things (threw away a lot...), making decisions about colors, furniture and shopping ( that has been the best part hee hee!)
And now I am here again; it's nice to sit down after a long day!
I squeezed in some time for my submission at the City Crafter Challenge Blog. This week we have to use roses on our project. Here is the photo inspiration:
My submission is a small and simple take on the challenge.
I made small box as a thank you gift. A while ago I bought a few small boxes made of chipwood. I painted it in a shade of green/ blue and made some roses out of felt. And added a few pearls.
It turned out quite simple; I let the roses speak for itself.
I filled it with hazelnuts covered in chocolate.
And here is my box:
Time to have something to drink and than...off to bed.
