Spring arrival - Frühlingsanfang

Spring has finally arrived in my garden. The dwarf daffs in my front garden are finally flowering. I also call them my smiling duffs, as they always make me smile when I leave the house or come home and I know Sprin is finally upon us.


Der Frühlung ist jetzt auch bei mir, in meinem Süd-Londoner Vorgarten eingezogen. Die Zwergosterglocken blühen und ich muss immer lächeln, wenn ich an ihnen vorbeigehe.

The hyacinths and muscari are not quite there yet, but I took a picture anyway.


Die Hyazinthen und Muscari sind noch nicht ganz da, aber ein Photo konnte ich mir dann doch nicht verkneifen.

Stunning treasury

My vintage fabric coin purse was included in this stunning etsy treasury today. I just love the colours and the 're use re gain' theme!

Mein Vintage Stoffportemonnaie war in dieser wunderbaren Etsy 'Treasury' eingestellt. Ich finde die Farben ganz toll und auch das Thema 're use re gain' (wieder benutzen, wieder gewinnen)

The treasury was curated by floweredskybeads who sells amazingly beautiful pendants and other treasures!


Die 'Treasury' wurde von floweredskybeads zusammengestellt, die sehr schöne Anhänger und ander Schätze verkauft.

An Outing to Joss Bay, Kent, UK

We visitied relatives at the Kent Coast this weekend. The girl's were full of energy, so we headed down to Joss Bay. It was just stunning. The wind was freezing though and we could only stay a few minutes. Here some pictures for everyone to enjoy!

One of the girls having fun in the waves and on the beach.

I could not resist to take some pictures of beach finds.

And finally .......

Decoration's for a girl's room

We are currently looking to re-design my 4 year-old's room, as she is a 'big' girl now and requires suitable accommodation :-) We (mum and daughter) finally have decided on a bed, an adult sized cabin bed with an alice-house style tent underneath, no less. The wall colour, which may or may not be a surprise to you, is pink, 'pretty pink' to be precise.

Now, the fun bit is to look for room decorations, and to be honest I did not even think that I would be looking for decorations. But here we go, my list of beautiful adornments is growing by the minute and I probably required 2 or 3 rooms if I wanted to accommodate them all. Here is a first selection of my finds:

1. Siblings Silhouettes Wall Decal by lepapierstudio

2. Custom Name Design by englishmuffinsshop

3. Coatrack by GLANZeffect

4. Paper Cuckoo's clock by petie

5. Vintage Wallpaper Birds by Inke Heiland
