Presents and Visits.
Lately I have been given several little presents from people.
Some vintage fabrics from my lovely friend N. and some small presents came to me via my Dad who returned from a holiday in Thailand and The Netherlands.
He thought they were a little sily, but I don't. As a matter of fact they are exactly the kind of things that I like: little vintage pictures and 3-d paper flowers, wooden ladybugs and a red bead necklace that used to be my Oma's. Thank you Tante Alie. I will use the pictures in my collages. And have already worn the beads.
But I don't know from whom the gorgeous little diary came. Tante Joukje, Adrie?
It is published by Pipstudio.com ,and is full of delicious collages of ribbons, old photographs, birds, threads and teacups. Their homepage is gorgeous and interactive, and I want the blue teacup with the bird on it... And their wallpaper is most unusual! The diary has some postcards included, and those are going on the wall of my workroom.
In the first week of my holiday I picked up N. and we drove to our friend J.'s place. She lives way in the "wopwops" : a good 40 minute drive from Hastings. This is the sight that greeted us on the outskirts of town, fresh snow on the Ruahines.
BBrrrrr...!! And that's why the wind is so chilly!
So cute all prancing about and pestering their mothers for more milk. I hope they don't get too cold at night! It isn't spring yet...
