Nesting

It´s raining outside but there´s plenty of colour in here! I received a lovely gift this week from Mirre in Holland - a beautiful pocket wallhanging which has now been placed on the side of my work bench and it´s perfect for scissors, pencils, tapemeasure etc. In the next picture you can see some bags which I´ve made for a swap - more on that another time, it´s still a secret. I saw Hanna´s lovely postcards and thought I´d make some of my own...I then covered them with contact plastic and hung them on my kitchen door as inspiration. They catch my eye whenever I sit down to drink a coffee and endless ideas pop into my head so I´m usually not sitting for long. It was a big harvest week in the garden this week...we dug out over 10 kilos of wonderful potatoes and we picked the last of our tomatoes, onions and capsicums. I cooked letcho with them and the smell had me dreaming of long Italian summers.

Whenever I come to your blog, from the very first day, I think your home looks like such an inviting and wonderful place to be, full of colour and good food and warmth and love. What a beautiful space you've created.

Mmm... I am loving that wall hanging! I am actually trying to design a few wall pockets right now. Any chance you have a closeup that I could see?

Thank you for that little glimpse into your life via your collage of photos and now I'm off to research capsicums and letcho, as I have no idea what they are, other than something you can eat (I think!).

Claudia, I love how you fill your days with such abundance and creativity and love in so many ways. I always leave your blog somehow refreshed and reminded of all there is to feel joy about.

Ok...I am embarassed. I just now discovered your blog & see all your fabulous creations! I'm sure you thought the bag I made for the Open Yours Trade 10 was pathetic. Please know I am a beginner & forgive the mishaps! :)

Stunning photos, your world is quite lively and fascinating. I love that you had a harvest and can just imagine the joy of growing your own food. One day I'll be able to do that in my garden, as long as the deer don't get to it first!

I just love your blog, found it today. It is so colorful and warm and homey. I can't beleive you have time for so much with children, makes me feel like I need to get more organized somehow, I want to do more too. I love the potatoes.

Laini said...

Wow -- your own potatoes. I always feel so removed from the basic things in life when I read your posts about all you do yourself. I feel like such a lazy consumer! Oh, and I saw part of a travel program on Austria last night -- SO gorgeous! I want to come visit!

So happy I wandered here. The world was beginning to feel dominated by grey.
