Summer in the city

Something curious is going on in this country. It is April, almost May, but when you go outside it feels like summer. The thermometer rises far above 20 (25-26 degrees celsius) Don't get me wrong I like summer, it is just that I like spring too... I like to go outside with my coat on and to discover that I don't need it. But we skipped that part and went from winter jacket to tank top almost overnight... Well, let's not complain. This kind of weather is way better then just rain. And upcoming Tuesday is going to be the first day at my new job, so I'll spend this last three days outside DIY'ing :) Last Tuesday I've worked on this chest with drawers.

I have painted all the wood in a colour called 'home'. The colours on the drawers are made of handmade paper colored with ink. While making this chest I discovered glue spray. So easy and no stripes!

A few things I bought lately:

Lovely red anemones

A turqoise teacup, made in India

A double letter tray

Buttons from the thriftshop

A wooden sewing box

At Goodnightlittlespoon I found this really nice ABC. Bianca borrowed it from Adeline who borrowed it from Sarah. I think it is a great way to get to know a person. And so is the content of someone's handbag. But I will save that list for later.
