DIY – Halloween decoration: bats!

DIY - Halloween decoration bats!

Halloween is not big in the Netherlands. It’s winning popularity but it’s still far from the holiday that’s known in America. I am loving it more and more. So I decided to create some Halloween decorations this year. The first things I made were these cute bats. I gave these away to a friend of mine but I’m planning to make a few more. Maybe some on a stick!

Why I didn't post that much this week…

this week

Above you see a few pictures of my week. I wasn’t able to post much this week because of a little accident. I burned by arms and right hand by a burst of flame from my pretty fifties stove. Yes I still think it’s a pretty stove, I’m only a little bit afraid of it now. We don’t know yet why it happened. We think it might be that the oven was not completely turned off and had build up some gas inside. But we don’t know that for sure. I know that I was very lucky, it could have been a lot worse.

My boyfriend baked his first ever cookies in the oven this week, so it looks like the oven is fine. Of course we are very cautious when we turn it on. We have steps now for it:

Step one: Open the door of the oven.
Step two: Smell for gas.
Step three: If you don’t smell gas you can turn it on.

Of course I will be back posting new tutorials and stories as soon as I feel a little better! I think I also have some stuff for you that I allready made pictures of but didn’t post yet. So stay tuned! XO Wilma

Recipe – Delicious homemade hot cocoa mix!

Recipe - Delicious hot cocoa mix! @By Wilma

Oh the weather… Ever since I’m back from my holiday it’s raining everyday. And it’s cold. Well it’s called fall and there is nothing wrong with that. Because fall comes with some great things like pumpkins and hot chocolate! I bought some pumpkins  and they are in my window-sill. I love the look of it and I will be a little bit sad when I have to let them go. Good thing is: I have a lot of seeds now to grow my own pumpkins next year! The other thing, hot chocolate, is tasting so much better when it’s cold outside. I always wonder why. I mean, tea and coffee do taste the same with cold or warm weather in my opinion? I made a batch of hot cocoa mix that I want to share with you. This hot cocoa mix is made with milk, not with water.
