Last week...

...I worked in the garden,

...I bought new chickens,

...I went for a walk with Milan,

and I knitted in the sun.
This week, I am sitting at my computer and it's rainy and cold outside. You can take a guess which week I prefer...

Peter Pan

I really like to browse trough my book collection, and that makes it so hard for me to dust bookshelves. I always end up with a book on a chair, dreaming away...
So maybe I can show you a random book from my library from time to time, if I have no blogging inspiration for instance.
These gouache illustrations are from an old Peter Pan book.

I wish I could create an atmosphere like that!

It's about time...

Scanning al the pages of my journal is not my favourite pastime, I'm afraid... That explains my being so terribly late!
I tried another selfportrait, not quite satisfactory...

The healing sketch

Natascha Rosenberg is an illustrator who lives in Madrid, Spain. Her blog is very cute and refreshing. Lovely drawings, beautiful pictures.

She also started a group on Flickr, where you can post your daily sketches. And that's what I'm going to do now!

Spring has sprung...

At last, spring seems to be arriving...I worked in the garden for the first time, the birds are singing, the cats enjoy the sun.

I planted this spirea last year, it has wonderful white blooms now.

Time for a joyful birdies-mosaic!

A long time ago..

...publicity looked like this:

and movie stars were like gods.

This blog is all about old movies, posters, and the crazy twenties and thirties.

What I've been doing...

Finishing the mittens,

(here you can see Pooh wearing her white mittens)

knitting another pair of socks,

and finally: making curtains for Lucy's room!

Winter embroidery

It keeps on freezing at night, and I am really, really bored with this wintery weather. I am longing for spring!!! I found these lovely embroidery pictures in an old Marie Claire Idées, when I was looking for the pattern of my unfinished mittens.
