My place

 
 

Since my very early childhood
I love the place called home. 
I love to travel and making tiny adventures,
but whenever I return to my place,
it feels so good.
One of my favorite things
when I was a child
was making a home within our home.
Was it in form of a cardboard house with my brother
or a house built of chairs, blankets and other things,
or I simply moved into the wardrobe :)
What is home for you?

Stamps in action

 

Happy mail

First package is from dear Sara who spoiled me again with vintage treasures. I'm in love with the fabric poster with the tree & forest animals, isn't it lovely? Thank you, you will soon receive something from me again!
 
Lily is travelling right now, she was so kind to send me a card from Vilnius. What a pretty one!
And last but not least, more snail mail from Barbara. She sent me next to a card some seeds. I'm all excited! And she made me a tiny notebook with pink pages, just perfect! I'm looking forward to use it :)
Thank you so much!

Geraniums

 
 
 
Nothing world-shaking today.
My geranium has grown good since I have it.
I was able to pick the fist strawberry
from the plant on the outside windowsill.

Surprise

 
This is what happens when different plants
are standing next to each other on a window sill.
I was really surprised about the purple shamrock
sprouting in the pot of my tangerine plant.
And the nasturtium seed must have been somewhere in the soil I use.
Happy Friday!

Bird stamps + stationery

 
 
Inspired of the last visit in the park
I carved some bird stamps
and decided to make some green stationery.
If I have time again I definitely want to make more :)
{You can find it in my shop if you want some for yourself}
I often think about creating.
Creating makes me disappear.
No feeling of any need,
always so replete.
How about you?

Birds

 •
 •
Weather was rainy, but not that cold, so my friend and I decided to go to the park. It did not take long and some hungry little birds appeared. Their babies where waiting to be fed in the trees, we could hear them screech. Unfortunately we had nothing to eat for the squirrels with us, but they were very gamely.

Insects

 
 
 
 
Do you know the insect on the last picture?
It always reminds me on a hummingbird.
It is called bee fly.
In any case one of my favorite insects next to bumble-bees.
Do you like insects?

The wind

{Music: The Wind • Cat Stevens}
Today I enjoyed the wind very much,
it had the right temperature
and made everything around us dance.

Black doily rug

 
 
Although I am not much into black,
I have to admit though it's a nice color for a rug.
My new shamrock is already blooming.
Wish you all a happy weekend with the ones you love!

Plants

Last weekend I got some plants from my parents for my outside windowsill. It's so nice to finally be able to have some plants outside as well. Unfortunately the weather is so crazy that some of them already got killed by rain & wind. I guess this is life. I have to find out which plants are most suitable. Yesterday it was so cold that we had to turn the heating on, last Friday we had 32 degrees!
