Spring is here! Meanwhile on my worktable...

Hello dears,

Europe here.

Anyone fancy some spring?

Let me send some sun rays your way,
because here the weather is so mild and sunny.

(WOYWW'ers: Second half of the post,
after my ramblings about flowers and yah... more flowers,
you can find more on the worktable part.)

Most of the times when I'm out and about I forget to bring my camera.
But luckely my cellphone has a camera too!

I have to say I'm getting quite addicted to Instagram at the moment.
Click, quick edit, and send.

These square shaped photos are all taken with my phone.

The tree above is my favourite one in our neighbourhood.
I love how the big petals of the blossoms make a soft tapestry on the ground.
Of course I forgot to take a picture of that.

But I also love how the sun shines through those beautiful petals.

And also through the petals of the tree above.
I love the effect of the light when a photo is taken against the sun.

In a forgotten corner are these sweet little blue ones...

Meanwhile, whenever I get the chance when it is not so sunny,
I try to finish a fabric wall hanger I'm working on.
Yes, well, it's taking a while.

So, here's what's on my worktable at the moment.
If you work your way through the bushes, you'll find this...

I'm still deciding on the hanging part
and on some other things.

But who cares really when there is sun to be enjoyed!

Who else is on my worktable?


An adorable little plant who found it's way to my table today.
Who could resist such a little one? Surely I can not.
I have a weak spot for wee plants.

I hope he'll enjoy his little place.
He got the best view, so I don't think he'll complain.

He had his own little name badge.
In case I couldn't understand him when he was introducing himself.

(And in case you didn't know, "Bambino" is little child in Italian).

Isn't that cute?

Oh, and yes, you're right,
months ago there was not a single plant to be seen on my worktable.

But there's an invasion going on now. They seem to take over my work space.
As long as they don't quarrel, they're most welcome to stay.

No room for mess anymore on this table.

Space is becoming increasingly scarce!


So, here's my WOYWW for this week.

(WOYWW = What's on your workdesk Wednesday)

Thank you Julia for hosting!

Wishing you all a sunny day!

xx Wen

  21. Wat heb jij een gave duidelijk camera op je foon Wen! (oh nee, je bent gewoon een supergoede fotografe! Dát is het!) Schitterende foto's van de lente, toch misschien wel het mooiste seizoen van het jaar, alhoewel alles z'n charme heeft natuurlijk. Je muurhanger wordt weer een echte blikvanger, mooie warme kleuren heb je daarvoor gebruikt zeg, heel erg mooi! Enne, vergeet niet tegen Bambino te obrollen hè? Liefs, Ira x

  22. Wat een mooie Lente foto's zeg!!!!!
    Heerlijk he, dit jaargetijde, zo genieten vind ik dat!

    Jij hebt mij laatst een mailtje gestuurd.....heb je die heel toevallig nog in je mail box, onder verzonden items staan?
    Ik ben alles kwijt.
    Als je hem niet meer hebt hoeft het niet opnieuw hoor, dan ga ik met mijn zoon wel even via jouw blog proberen.
    (een paar mensen hebben mij ook niet meer in hun leeslijst, volgens mij heeft dat ook met Google plus te maken, bah, zo jammer)

  23. So many beautiful photos my friend.I am loving the pretty photos from your phone.. And your editing looks awesome as well. And your wall hanging looks amazing. I LOVE the bead work.


  24. Dear Wendy,
