flea market finds

Aaah how I love flea markets!

I got these pretty clothes hangers for the nursery.

Plus these Japanese bowls, perfect for a hot, spicy miso soup on a chilly autumn night.

We ended up chatting about babies and baby supplies with the couple we bought these from. In the end, they also gave us these for free:

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Ps. Today we got the balcony ready for minus temperatures at night... It's quite exciting, I think. It looks so totally different now, the cats were a bit confused at the beginning and seemed to miss the many flower pots the could hide inbetween... Now that the sun has been shining and they were outside all day the seem to be a bit soothed.

Pps. My eBay addiciton has returned and I'm buying many wonderful fabrics to be turned into more quilts... let's see how many pre-baby quilts I'll be able to finish!

finally - the apron

So here's me and my apron from lovely Venus. It's so pretty I don't even dare wearing it :) But I will, eventually.

The girls' night last night was fabulous, we had a great time chatting and eating and adoring the super tiny baby socks.

There's a big flea market coming up this weekend, it starts tonight but we plan on going tomorrow in the early morning. Keep your fingers crossed for some good flea market finds!

Have a wonderful Friday.

500 days of summer

Sorry I've been absent for a couple of days - there wasn't really that much to do but it seemed like it because with the growing bump things are getting more difficult to be done and it takes a lot longer.

I was just about to take a picture of my beautiful new apron as promised, but then the camera ran out of batteries.

So for now, no new pictures, but a movie recommendation:

It has one of my favourite actresses plus many many of my favourite musical pieces. It's so nice to watch a movie which doesn't follow the typical love movie patterns.

Plans for today: Tonight I'll have some girl friends over and I'm planning on making a pea-courgette-mint-tortilla plus potato wedges with aioli. We'll see how it turns out!
