The year os over so fast this year, less than two weeks and it’s Christmas 2016 already. This year I don’t feel like putting too much Christmas decorations. I always try to make something for Christmas, but I’m a little tired. All the work for my masterthesis cost me a lot of energy.
So i only made a couple corners with Christmas decorations which were easy to pick from the attick or that I bought this year. I you read further you can find some pictures of the Christmas corner in our house for Christmas 2016. [Read more…]
In winter I always like it to sit on the couch, watching tv and at the same time knitting or crocheting a blanket. Mostly I’m working on a couple of projects and it’s sometimes not easy to really finish a blanket. The knitting is not the problem, but after that all the loose ends need to be fixed in the blanket. And I really don’t like that. And I also want to share the blankets with you here on my blog. For now I have two plaids (with this one) finished to blog about and two blankets that need some loose-ends-work and also writing a blog about. And two new ones are on their way, which more than halfway with the knitting part. Oeps a lot of work to do then (while I first have to work on my Master Thesis to get that finished too).

The Baby Pilea, also named Pilea Peperomioides is here in Holland one of the most wanted plants on Instagram. Since spring this year you see a lot of pictures on Instagram of little and big Baby Pilea’s. It;s really a nice plant and easy to take care of. The baby Pilea is originally from China. You have more than 600 different species (bron).
While you saw a lot of pictures on Instagram the Baby Pilea wasn’t easy to find in the stores. [Read more…]
These days it’s a must to have a lot of green in your house. And with green I mean a lot of plants. I always liked plants in my house, but because of all the dust that comes with rebuilding and reconstruction in the house, most of my plants die in short time. So on a regular basis I have to buy new plants to fill the empty pots;-). But sometimes it’s nice to make a new spot for a nice plant with a great planter. Read further what I did [Read more…]
Do you have that too, you want to do so many things at the same time, and you don’t know where to start anymore? Finally you and up with doing nothing. I have that a lot.
We are rebuilding an old house since the end of 2002. The house is from before 1900 and it’s such a never ending story (but we love the house). These days it’s not only rebuilidng, but also the normal things like painting things again. And at the same time I have new ideas to change things we already rebuilded 10 years ago. Next to that I also get a lot of inspiration from Instagram, Pinterest, magazines etc. into my head. For those ideas I’m buying all kind of stuff. Most of the time I start with the idea, but It’s still not finished. It gave me the feeling that my head is floating over. Everywhere there is stuff that needs some work.
So to get things done, I bought a nice, simple notebook at the Hema and I started to write down different categories and projects on different pages. Under that I wrote all things that I could think of that need to be done and my new to do list was born.
Some people are laughing about my to do lists, but somehow this is the only way for me to finish things and to empty my head a little bit and of course to clean up the house;-). So after writing everything down, the To do list exists now of 200 items. This goes from a lot of painting and other things for the house, to clothes I need to fix, things for my Blog and other hobby things that I have in my mind. [Read more…]
