Little lamb

Hi there! I finished this little lamb this morning. Isn't she cute? Found her in the book by Tamie Snow: Tiny Yarn Animals. I love that book, and the lamb is the first animal I've crocheted from it, but certainly not the last. Have a nice day!

Here's the headband I was working on in the weekend. It turned out quite nice, I think. So that was me being creative...

My youngest son, Sylvester, is going to a birthday party tomorrow. He's going with his kindergarten, and they don't bring presents to the birthday child. But he's creative and made a little drawing for his friend. He made an envelope and wrote "To Sammi. From Sylvester" on it. He's so loving and thoughtful.

Nature's creative! Spring is so overwhelming. Before you know it the magnolia unfolds, and a week or two later the leaves fall of. You just have to be sure that you enjoy it while it lasts...

Childhood Nostalgia

I don't know what it is with me these past few days... It seems that I'm looking for old memories in everything and finding traces of my own history in different items found in the basement or in the boys' room. These are my first shoes...

I was born in 1974. I remember this holder for the milk cartons. We used it every day and you can see it on photographs from my birthdays, when I was a little girl. Why don't we use these anymore?

Long weekend

It's been such a nice weekend - with time to do some of the things I like...

Drinking coffee in the garden. Baked a carrot cake, but I didn't take a picture of it, sorry...

Doing some tidying. Found some of my mother's old books - with bite marks from her dog.

My mother's handwriting - 10 years old. Thinking about her today since it's Mother's Day...

Crocheting in the sun. I love it!

Working on a head band. I'll show it to you when it's finished.

Looking at the cat taking a nap in the chair. She looks cute. But she's a dangerous killer! As we ate our supper she came in from the garden to show us the big mouse, she just caught.

A snail for you

This cute snail was made from a pattern provided by Roxycraft. You find the pattern here. I have to finish my coffee and go to work. Talk to you later...

I'm back on the blog!

Yeah, I'm back... And I'm sorry I haven't been so productive lately... Today I went to a flea market, where I found this little happy fellow. My husband bought it for me:-)

I made a scoop at the flea market: found a small Mulberry leather bag for the price of 10 Dkr! It's beautyful and looks all new.

Finished this small spring ballerina yesterday. She has a big nose and she's a little shy. But when the music starts to play she dances and forgets...

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend - I know I did. So long...
