urban jungle blog #1

urban jungle bloggers is an amazing initiative by bloggers Judith and Igor to inspire people to do more with plants.
this months green assignment is: show your balcony or window sill. 
my window sill has a bit of seventiesfeeling with pilea, a snake plant & some succulents.
i bought the little green giraffe at coos-je.

haven't been to a thriftstore for ages, but today i had to have an egg cup for the easterbreakfast in school tomorrow. 
i did buy an egg cup but i also came home with:
this goosenecklamp that can stand on your desk but can also hang on the wall.
the perfect (handthrown) little pot for the cactus and a planter for the young mint-seedlings.

fort festijn

took the boys up north to visit fort festijn in haarlem
the wonderful location for fort festijn is an old building from the dutch railwayorganisation 
called seinwezen 

the caravan from suiker & bloem was serving out food & beverages

and there were some workshops from 101woonideeën like crocheting with roest & haakt

the boys loved the fact that there were trains

in my hand

"Life is what happens to you, while you're busy making other plans"
John Lennon

i wish i could hold everything in my hand

lately life took over 
study, work, my children 
a good friend died
a close friend of my husband got in a coma
and died
last monday T. fell
pretty hard on his nose 
my children need me

i decided to set my priorities straight 
and that's what i did! :)
