First salad from our garden!

This week we had our first salad from our garden. We already used some salad for bread and burgers but we never had a ‘real’ salad until now. They were growing so hard for the last couple of days that we needed to eat them now. So that’s going to be a lot of salad for the next week!

We also had radish and of course fresh herbs. I also added some feta cheese and walnuts. It really was delicious. So much better than store bought salad! I’m already thinking about what to plant next now there is room for more. XO Wilma

My couch was in desperate need of some new pillows. I wanted some color in my home and I thought making some colorful pillow covers would just do theΒ trick. Of course I will add more color in the near future but this was a really nice project to start. These pillow covers are the quickest and easiest pillow covers you have ever made. They are also removable for washing!

Latest thrift store finds

thrif store finds fabric and teatowel

I made a quick stop by the thrift store today. Just to see if they have anything new and amazing for me. I also needed some small baskets for a project that I will be sharing with you soon. Of course they had all kind of amazing new things. I found two vintage mermaidΒ tea towels. They are so cute! The blouse I bought just for the fabric. I love the fabric but the model really isn’t my kind of thing.

Shopping for plants

Today I went shopping for some plants for the bedroom. I love to have some plants there, it makes it so much more alive! I also wanted some small colorful cactus. I found everything and I am so happy with how everything looks in my home! It’s coming more and more together.

I never was able to keep plants alive, but lately I’m doing much better. I still like to buy plants who don’t mind it when I forget them though… Do you have a lot of plants in your home? XO Wilma
