Wobbly no more

First it was just wobbly but yestday he took a bite out of an apple & now it is a real loose tooth! His first!

So I had to make something fast so when it really comes out we have something to put it in.

- vintage needlebooklet

This little pattern did the trick, quick, nice & easy!


Now we are all ready for the tooth fairy!

Count my blessing # 5

This made me happy this week:

- having my own 'ugly' 70ties plant



- visiting the petting zoo with T.



- enjoying a high tea at Dudok with a friend

- I really got very happy seeing all those comments coming in for my giveaway, thank you!!!

- And I am truly happy that at least 2 out of 4 of our little family, get to enjoy this beautiful, sunny weather we are having here!
The week ended with the chicken pox for T., he is really covered in them & has a fever to match his appearance :(, T. the dalmatian kid...

Hopefully the new week has a better start!

Homemade Market

Sunday the boys & I took the tram to the citycentre of The Hague to visit the Homemade Market. The boys had fun looking at the caroussel, choosing their own pair of Walky-Talkies, eating cotton candy, checking out the ukelele workshop & trying the ballooncar!


It was fun to see a lot of webshops in real life like: Djello, Mies & MasMooch, Tas-Ka & Hebbuh! And to see & touch before buying which means: I bought more than I intended in the first place... ;)!


It was even more fun to see homemade stuff by peeps without a shop!
I bought this cute little bird-dish & fawn from a woman without a shop & I finally got myself a beautiful 'knoopjes'-bracelet (how could I not have one? :)) from ByBjor! Found me some vintage brooches as well.


We also got some homedmade pastries but they didn't make it home, we ate them at the spot!
