Vintage Finds

When I am in a second hand shop or at a flea market, I always like to browse through to books they have. Hoping to find books that I am already looking for for years (no luck yet). And always looking for books with names, of the kids, friends, family and myself. I was very lucky to find these two, with nice retro pictures as well!

These lovely new ribbons arrived for the shop last week. Other exciting stuff for the shop is coming my way too, but I have to be patient (and test some things first).... and waiting is not my strongest side!

I got this award:

from Nicollie.
There are some things that go with this award like saying thanks to the one that gave me the award: Thanks Nicole!
And telling 10 things about myself:
1.My parents were going to name me Joris if I was a boy;
2.I hate light softdrinks because of the awful sweet aftertaste;
3.I studied Food Technology (do not do so much with it lately);
4.I don't watch much television, but I really need to watch the detective each Wednesday night;
5.I like wearing dresses;
6.I am a lazy sewer, I do not use pins if possible and I try to avoid zippers, pockets and strechy fabrics....;
7.I like to eat raw puff-pastry;
8.My favorite shop is HEMA, I also like IKEA a lot;
9.My favorite colours (at the moment) are purple and aqua;
10.Gerberas are my favorite flowers.
So, here you have some totally useless facts about me, haha!
And the last thing that goes with the award is to pass it on to 9 other people. I am not going to do that, because I see it already everywhere in the blog world.

Finished! This is the result.
Since I cannot crochet nor knit, I tried something else with wool, I used a knitting bobbin (punniken in Dutch). I think it turned out rather nicely and I like the autumny colours of the wool a lot. To make it a bit more special, I attached matching fabric covered buttons to the necklace. I feel another crafty addiction coming up!

This little baby turned five Today!

And Today it is also his birthday at school. Very proud (and a bit shy) he went to school to celebrate it with his little friends. Singing, blowing candles, standing on the chair, making music and of course giving treats. Popcorn and a little autumn themed button.

Market and more

The Textielmarket was just awesome! I met lots of nice people, had many enthousiastic customers en had very goods sales. Unfortunately, I did not have the time to look around myself and I almost forgot to take pictures...
Here is one of my booth:

Here is one of me in my booth (taken by a photographer of Tilburg.com, you can find more pictures of the Textiel weekend there):

And here is a picture of one of my Autumn projects, a necklace (by the way it is not finished yet and has nothing to do with the market, but I liked to share something new with you):
