Things

First of all my apologies for my long absence!

Let me make it up to you by showing you all the super delicious things Michel and I scored for me this weekend. While I was at the thriftstore, he was at Hema and we both had some great finds.















First up are these two cute boxes that Michel found for just 2 euros each. Look at those polka dots!!















Then these two hobby kits (also 2 euros each) which contain everything you need to make a scarf and a child's cape.


How could I not buy this mug? Especially when it was only 30 cents?! I'm hoping this will mean that Michel and I are really going to England this spring... I would so looooooove to go!















I found the fabric on the left and Michel bought me the fabric on the right. Isn't it funny that the flowers are exactly the same?!




















This book is wonderful. Lots of fun crafts.
















But these two creatures really made me decide to buy it... I think they're both adorable and I would love to try them out.

Not pictured, but treasured nonetheless: 2 more hobby kits, a tiny bag for my I-pod and a fantastic basket for my sewing things.
I know it's superficial, but sometimes buying lovely things really makes me happy.

Today I've been cleaning and sorting again...when will I ever be finished?! I've been trying to unearth my craftroom. In some areas I've been successful, like sorting out my stash:

I hope to have more pictures very soon!
