Our hallway is not finished yet, but it’s beginning to look nice! I have to make a cushion for the bench, and we need hang up a small hanger for Rens. I also want to put some photos and illustrations on the walls. We’ve conveniently found a solution to hide our shoes by building a bench with cabinets underneath and the gloves and scarves go in baskets. But of course there are lots of creative storage ideas. Here are a few of my favorites. I think the bookcase in the hall is a great idea. We don’t have any space here to pull it off, but it would look great in a spacious hall! XO Wilma
My life has changed a lot since I became a mommy. Rens is the sweetest little guy that I can imagine and I’m so proud! But also super in love with him. Much more than I could imagine. And I think that’s the biggest change: that overwhelming mother feeling. Every television program about the relationship between parent and child makes me cry. I thought I knew how it would feel to be a mommy but it is so much more than I could ever imagine. And by that I only mean the positive, I really would not want anything else!
I’m also super curious about his character. Will he be a rascal, is he musical, creative? And what color will his eyes be? I can’t wait, but at the same time I don’t want him to grow up too fast because he is so cute and small right now! XO Wilma
My boyfriend was busy cleaning the closet and ran into some cards. Of course they were all cards we never use. That’s probably why they are in a closet. He wanted to throw them all away, but I thought I could make something fun out of it. In the past I have made guitar picks, so I knew that they are fairly easy to cut with ordinary kitchen scissors. This gave me the idea to make a necklace with it. With a little nail polish you can give the plastic any color you want. So let your imagination run wild!
Read on to see how you can make this geometrical triangle necklace out of a recycled gift card. . . Continue reading »
Although my house is already filled with the nicest thrift store finds, I can not resist to keep looking. We continue to look for unique items. Here in Sneek we have a new store called ‘Mijn Tafel’. Here you can rent a table and the owners of the shop sell your stuff. The money goes to the you. What’s nice about this is that there is some really good stuff to be found and it’s mostly in pretty good condition. I already found quite a number of clothes for Rens in mint condition and Tom found a box full of Lego for only 25 Euros.
But outside of new things they also have the cute vintage stuff. Such as the teapot and kettle above. And what about the clock? We were looking for a clock for the living room and this one is just perfect!
I found this super cute retro garage at our favorite thrift store. I know Rens is not nearly ready to play with it, but I just couldn’t leave it there!
I currently have a weakness for pretty things for Rens, like toys and clothes, and vintage kitchen stuff. What are the items you have a soft spot for when you go shopping at thrift store? XO Wilma
