Picnic Time...

No, you might think (from the title of this post) that the sun has come out, but unfortunately that is not the case. We did however find the most extraordinarily fun lemonade container! Just look at this beauty:

Mr. G. found it while I was looking at this maternity dress. (I was looking at the buttons remember, not thinking of having more babies etc, in case you were wondering...)  <wink>

The dress does actually fit me nicely and it is sooo comfy having all that fabric flowing around me, but I think I will use the fabric for accent pieces in other projects.

Below you can also see some other fabric I found while thrifting last week. It has a polyester type of feel to it and Tif immediately thought of curtains. I was more thinking of a blouse with a nice drape or something like that. We'll see.... 

I also bought the plaid shirt (which is a bit snug I must admit) and the last picture shows the progress I'm making on the gingham blouse. One sleeve in, the second one will be next. I haven't tried it on yet and I fear it might also be a bit snug, but I still have hope that it becomes something wearable... (one can always hope right?)

That's about all for now. I'm mentally trying to get ready for tonight: we have tickets to go and see 'Mudhoney', a very loud grunge band from Seattle from the olden days. Mr. G. knows the lead singer and Kim (from 'Soundgarden') should be there also so that will be fun!
The concert doesn't start until 9:30pm though and that is only the warm up band! (I usually go to bed around 8:30pm or so...)

I'll let you know all about it, but maybe not until Friday, since I will need Thursday as a day of rest...  <wink>


  1. I think I would have bought the dress for the buttons, too :~)

  2. Die container is te gek! Marrtin gaat waarschijnlijk naarSoundgarden als ze op Pinkpop spelen!

  3. Ja, die lemonade container is echt te gek!
    Oh Soundgarden zeg je...ik wil meteen naar m'n cd-kast om de cd te zoeken, maar herinner me dat ik die ooit heb uitgeleend en nooit meer heb terug gekregen :( haha! Mudhoney had ik geen cd's van.. maar zal vast ook leuk zijn, hoop dat het leuk was!

  4. The maternal dress looks so comfy and the buttons are very cute!
    And I love the fabric with the flowers!
    Kram, Monica

  5. That is one cute lemonade container!!!
    Chris :o)

  6. Ik zou lekker gaan picknicken met zo'n fleurige jurk met rozenknoopjes...
    op een geruit kleedje en een rietenmand en dan de limonade in zo'n rode bus...
    en dan in een lente-bloemenweide natuurlijk!

    1. Oh, een lente bloemen weide (zoals bij jou in de buurt) zou ik graag hier willen zien, maar helaas, wij werden vanochtend weer wakker met sneeuw... ;-)


How wonderful to hear from you!

Flooded waters...

With all the recent rainfall and snow melting in the mountains, some flooding occurred once again in our valley. Yesterday, whils...
