These beautiful peonies my son Nick gave me before he left for Greece on a holiday. He's at university in Amsterdam and very busy ( not always with studying, mind you) so i don't get to see him as much as i would love to. I am not a nagging mother , i just cherish the moments when he does find time to come and see us :) ilovehim.
On this cabinet there is a sculpture i got from my parents when Nick was little. It's represents him as a happy little boy on his tricycle. Next to the cabinet a lamp made out of broken glass handmade by an artist in Amsterdam.
On this small cabinet a Swedish figurine i got from a Swedish customer once. I forgot what she stands for, but when i light the candles in front of her at night, she looks so lovely, like an angel.
Inside the cabinet is a tea set i got for Mother's day when we were in Singapore, i only use it on special occasions to afraid to break it. Behind it is an old Dutch tile we found in the ground when we were renovating our house. It dates back from 1780 and was still completely intact.
ilove, love seashells. Here is a small collection. Although i am not a very religious person the small antique English bible means a lot to me. Next to it a picture of me in my weddingdress after drinking too much Champagne.
And last but not least, my latest project this sofa. I bought it at a fleamarket and chose these two fabrics for a new upholster. I am not totally satisfied yet but it's getting there. And for those of you have been following me longer. Yeah! It's still here, the painting!
Have a happy, happy Sunday!
