The one with Valentine's day

This is a repost of a DIY I posted back in 2013. This is my most viewed post, and was featured on sites like Readers Digest and Brit.co
Because today is Valentine's day, I am posting this one again. Why? Because I think Valentine's day shouldn't have to be about fancy, expensive gifts and I wanted to show you that it's super easy to make a gift yourself. And what says I love you more, than a cute little DIY? This project only costed me a plate and a Sharpie (the one that has 'paint' written on it) that I already had. Besides that, all you need is a little bit of time!



Start by making ovals

Make triangles

Don't forget to bake your plate for half an hour at 150ºC / 300ºF
I do my dishes the old fashioned way, but once baked, it should
be dishwasher-proof.



To make it more fancy, you can wrap it up with some homemade cookies, or some of your loved ones favourite chocolates.You can find more DIY projects over here.

The one with a sunday walk

Sharing some pictures from a recent walk, it was slightly snowing that day, so that explains the stripes on the photos. So far we haven't had many snowdays, and I am hoping we are slowly moving towards spring, without to many snow, hail and other kinds of wintery weather. Surprisingly, I managed to squeeze in some doors into this post :-)






 

Noticed the creepy doll heads? They give me the Heebie-Jeebies! 


Enjoy your weekend!

The third and fourth song have been featured on the show. Have you discoved any songs lately that are shareworthy? Please feel free to share your favourites in the commentsection below.

The one with the newly discovered streetart

Two sundays ago I went for lunch with my mom at the old soup factory. On our walk there we discovered new street art, what a treat! I was happy as a bird with a french fry, with these colourful pieces. It was a bit of a grey and cold day, and I was pretty pleased with how these photos turned out. Hope they bring some sunshine to your day. 





As a bonus, we also spotted this car. I instagrammed the photo (#asundaycarpic, my favourite hashtags, where loads of people from all around the world post pictures of pretty cars), with the question what kind of car it might have been. According to Mary, it's an Opel Caravan. According to in.wien.mit.wien it's a Peugeot 404 Familiale. They both think it's from the sixties. Nowadays cars are definitely more comfortable, but I prefer the look of oldies like this one!

The one with Etsy finds

Because of the upcoming holiday season, I've been spending more time on Etsy than usual, in search of unique items that aren't available on every street corner. Buying from small shops (although I am guilty of buying from department shops occasionally) is something I love. Searching for that something special, supporting a dream, people who cook up unique items. Instead of buying things that are made by big corporations. How I spend my money is a choice. And I like to choose to spend it in a way, where I think I make the world a bit of a nicer place. Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Do you shop from websites like Etsy? Or local shops? Maybe I'll snatch up that little dove pendant for myself....
