a Sewing "Date"



 
I think you probably know by now that I like to sew. There is something so satisfying about cutting pieces of fabric & then stitching them together in such a way to create a whole new item. Sometimes just for prettiness & at other times something really useful. Like a bag, to carry your weekly groceries in. Sturdy and environmentally friendly as opposed to plastic...

Handmade lantern, Hailstones & Vow



Weather-wise this week has not been too fine. The windows of Pale Rose Cottage showed grey skies, rain rain rain & we even had hailstones! It was so loud that Charlotte & ChloĆ« where rudely awakened from their afternoon nap. The girls looked annoyed and still sleepy around. "What on earth was that???" their little faces said to me. I told them it was just hailstones but they did not take my word for it and popped onto the windowsill to see for themselves...

The Mailman, Books, Honey & Thyme



I've been on the lookout for the mailman. Every time I hear a small van drive through the street in which Pale Rose stands I stop, listen and have a quick little look. One time I saw the mailman's van slow down as it was approaching our cottage. My heart changed a beat and I wondered if today I would get a parcel...

Whitsun & Beetroot Cupcakes


As the title already suggests, or should I say states, it's Whitsunday today. A holiday I've always heard of growing up but for some reason never really celebrated with vigor. We would perhaps have a small vase of wildflowers on the table and eat a special meal. But no other traditions would be added to this day. I'm not even sure if there are any special things that people do for Whitsun. This year however we have a new and homemade decoration in our cottage especially for Whitsunday...

Turning 1 year old


It's the girls first Birthday today!


When I woke up early this morning I put up some festive handmade bunting that I made some time ago. In pinks, whites and green & then I wished the girls a very Happy 1st Birthday. Singing is not an option with my voice, but thankfully C&C did not seem to mind. I quickly took this photo of 2 still very sleepy cats, unaware of how special this day is. Oh, how I remember May 15 2012 like it was yesterday...

Mothers Day



In honor of Mother's Day I made mom a card, I always do :) Started in kindergarden and I kept up the tradition, for many years now. It's fun to do & my mom likes it. Great to see her smile...

Painting, Pretty Flowers & Remembering



Life has been busy here at Pale Rose Cottage. We still found some time to enjoy ourselves & do something creative. Nature is coming more alive around us every day. Flowers appear and leaves grow quickly. The sun is out and about, time to add a bit of color to our cottage...

Our Nature table & the Giggles




Spring flowers always evoke a sense of joy in me. Their delicate petals and colors. Their scent and silent message that the earth is coming alive again. Absolutely beautiful, so we had to bring a little bit of spring inside our cottage. What better way to do this then to decorate our nature table in pastels and flowerchildren...
