A day out with the girls

Yesterday I had my first niece-day. Together with my mother, two sisters, aunt and niece we visisted my other nice in her rebuilt house in Utrecht. After a little lunch we had a guided tour into the Dom Tower, where we had to walk 465 stairs to reach 97 meters. And that made me claustrofobic and acrophobic and the same time, but it was worth it.

The top! At 112 meters

  After all the hard work, my niece made reservations at a really nice place for an extensive high tea.

Busy bee

Even though I am not writing as many blog posts and letters as if I would like, that does not mean that I spend my spare time sitting on the couch doing nothing. With my friend Sara I'm crafting my hands off lately.. We are preparing for the Hip & Handgemaakt Markt in Hengelo this september where we will have our very own booth :) Down below some things I've recently made.

Spring flowers

Even though we had the same temperature today as on Boxing day 2011 it is spring out there. 19 Days from now the summer will start. To get in a sunny mood I would love to share some flower pictures with you, which I made lately.
