More about me

 

In the past couple of weeks two very kind ladies honored me with an Award. Andrea of Stitch Parade and Evie of Pendle Stitches. If you don’t follow their blogs already, hop over there. I am impressed by their sewing, knitting and quilting skills. Not to mention that I believe they are very sweet persons…despite not having met them I feel personalities come across from pictures and writing.

So, the story goes that I have to share some facts about me and then tag a few more people. Here we go then… I thought I’d do it with pictures


Today I celebrated my birthday…and took a walk outside…the day was gorgeous and I really wanted to sit down and admire the view from higher up.


I get very happy when something so simple appears before your eyes. Beauty is in small things


I dream about having a cocktail party right at this place…Just need to find a good enough excuse to rent it all out!

My daily route to work involves taking a ferry. Nothing fancy but the view is very relaxing.


I lived in Brussels for 6 years…and I love going back anytime I can…I actually miss it.


I love Gothic architecture…This is Brussels St. Michel Cathedral where the royal family gets married.


I love croissants…whether French, Italian, or from any other country.


I can be a tough lady…the sign (an advertising for a Belgian beer) says: My man always gets the last word: Yes, dear. (Mon mec a toujours le dernier mot: Oui, ma chérie)… But I would do anything for him…

And now I would like to tag

Frabjous Couture for inspiring me to take the plunge into couture dresses

Fehr Trade: seeing her pinup dress made me want to go out and make one too. Great inspiration.
