They bloom so much better as the year I bought them!

Day 116

Look at the log cabin quilt.  I want to make one with these colors. I found this picture in a living magazine so this is the only picture I have from the quilt. Wish I could see more of it.


edit: the magazine is Land Idyl  issue 02/2015
I think it is the german version of Scandinavian Lev Landig (but I'm not sure about that)

Happy with my vintage little table cloth which I found a while ago at a yard sale of a nunnery. 
The lace around the edge is crocheted with an impressive small size hook.

Day 109

Somewhere in the middle of Luxemburg we found this on our bicycle ride. 
It's build in a little tiny creek in the mountains. What a treasure, it makes my hart sing.
 I can imagine how a child is building it. (with his dad I suppose ;-) )

Day 103

(I took this picture through the kitchen window. The quality is bad.)
Look at this big tit. He is picking sisal from the handles for his nest. He was so busy that he didn't notice me at all.
