Sunshine and battles

Such a glorious sunny day again. Has the summer finally arrived to the Netherlands? Here's hoping it will stay like this for a while :-) The downside is I seem to have caught some sort of flu/cold bug, most likely from my partner who was sick last week. I've a sore throat and absolutely no energy, my whole body is aching a bit. Hope I won't get it as bad as he did... I will fight it as vigorously as I can, though right now it feels I'm losing the battle!

Details from our living room

I found this pretty crochet tablecloth from a charity shop in Haarlem. Soon I have to stop dragging home all this stuff as we are rapidly running out of space ;-)

A detail from our guestroom, though no progress has been made with it. We still need to get the electrical work done before we can proceed. My father-in-law, who is a carpenter/architect, already promised to build us a custom made bed, as the space where the bed goes is very specific. I am sure I have mentioned before how great it is to have such a handy father-in-law? :-) The watercolour painting on the background was made by one of my great-uncles, Pepe.

We have a tiny potted herb garden on our patio and right now Chives is in full bloom, and so is the Thyme on the background.

But now... time to watch some football World Cup :-)

Kiitos vierailustasi, piti heti tulla vastavierailulle! Sen verran ihana blogi, että ptää varmaan vierailla useamminkin!

Ihana blogi myös sinulla! Onnellinen, teillä on katukirppiksiä siellä päin! Meillä täällä Kajaanissa ei ikinä ole mitään noin kivaa!

Ihanaa viikonloppua sinne suunnalle!

@Aiti: Juu P:n maalaama on, kuten tuossa postauksessakin jo mainitsin ;-)

@Jaana: Kiitos vastavierailustasi :-) Ei meilläkään päin noita katukirppiksiä niin usein ole, mutta aina silloin tällöin. Useimmiten kirppistapahtumat täällä ovat sisätiloissa, mutta pääasia että niitä on! Ja hinnat ovat yleensä aivan naurettavan halpoja :-)

Löysin polkuni tänne blogiisi jostain :) Kannattipa tulla, kiva seurata sisustamista ja elämää myös siellä päin maailmaa. Kauniita kuvia ja kertomuksia, palaan niihin vielä hetkeksi.

Hope you will feel better soon!
I have a question. Some time ago you had some inspirational pictures in you sidebar. One was of a hallway, looking down at a front door with a curtain in front of it. I really liked that picture and it stuck in my mind as an inspiration for my hallway too. I thought I had saved a copy. Guess not. Do you still have it?

Kiitos visiitistäsi ja kommentistasi Pakkasakka :-)

@Marianne: I'm sorry but I've never had such picture on my sidebar. Must be some other blog? Hope you'll find it :-)

Still feeling rough, but at least today my voice has returned, not completely, but am able to make some sound ;-)
