Recipe – Pasta salad with smoked paprika and bacon

March 29, 2013

pasta salad with bacon and roasted paprika

I’m not a big eater at the moment. Sometimes there’s nothing that I like and I never eat more than one meal a day. But it’s getting better and that’s what counts! The best food for me at the moment is cold food. So today I want to share a recipe with you for a pasta salad. This one would also be great to go with a summer barbecue!

DIY - Easter bunny pouch / gift bag

I thought it would be a great idea to make a pouch for Easter. It is great as a gift bag with chocolate or candy eggs inside! It’s also great for kids to carry around while searching for hidden eggs. I made this from one of the vintage fabrics that I bought yesterday. It’s a very easy thing to make and your guest will love this cute Easter bunny pouch as a gift bag!

Latest thrift store finds!

March 22, 2013

thrift store find singer sewing machine

I want to share some of my latest thrift store finds today. Some days ago I bought this amazing vintage Singer sewing machine in the thrift store. It wasn’t really working, but I fixed it! At least for now. I hope it won’t stop working again! It’s a sewing machine on a small cabinet. You can put the machine inside the cabinet (by turning the sewing machine upside down). The cabinet is not in a really good shape so I may have to paint it. But I love this sewing machine! It will get a nice place in my new craft room.

thrift store find vintage fabric

Today there was a flea market in the city. I went strait for the fabric. I found a lot of amazing fabrics. I’m so happy! I also bought a really big wicker basket. It’s 50 cm high, 55 cm wide and 85 cm long. I wanted one for a long time. I want to use it in the future for dress up clothes for kids. Wouldn’t that be lovely?

Tomorrow we will go to the same flea market because they will open the furniture section. I want a cabinet for the nursery. So we will see what we find! XO Wilma

DIY – Tapewriter magnets

DIY - Tapewriter magnets tutorial

I just ordered a this amazing tapewriter from PS Ik hou van jou. It’s a Dutch site, but don’t worry if you are not Dutch. Amazon also has a great alternative! I love the look of the letters. These old-fashioned embossing tapewriters are so much better than the modern printing ones! Because I love the look of these labels so much I decided to create some magnets from them. This way I can use the labels over and over again without damaging my lockers! So today I’m going to show you this quick and easy DIY project for tapewriter magnets.

blog love - Tournicote

I found this amazing inspirational blog today called ‘Tournicote’. I’m in love with all the crocheted animals she makes and those pictures are just amazing!! It’s in French but you really have to check it out. I would love some of those crocheted animal heads for my nursery. Now I really need to learn how to crochet! I just keep postponing it…

Love this – Colorful bags

March 9, 2013

colorful bags

1 / 2 / 34 / 5 / 67 / 89

I love color. Especially for Spring! It reminds me of all the colors nature gives us this season. So for this ‘Love this’ I want to show you some really pretty and colorful bags. I absolutely love the Miu Miu bag (number 6) but that one is waaaaay out of my budget. I also like the ModCloth bag on number 5. A small bag with a small price (38 dollars). It’s just a perfect party bag! XO Wilma
