Where Bloggers Create 2015

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my little space
in Blogland !!
First of all 
Thank you so, so much Karen Valentine
for hosting this wonderful event
The Where Bloggers Create Party 2015. 

My name is Wilma, I'm honored
that you take time to visit my blog,
to see my creative space.
This is my second time I participate,
in 2013 was my first and
if you'd like to see the make over,
by Mr.B.,
of our attic to my work space 
click Here.

Last year my Mr. B.
made a dream come true
by adding a lot of shelves
to my work table.
You see the result in the pictures
that I want to share with you. 

I'm not going to do a lot of text,
and really hope you'll feel at home :)

here we go........

                                   Above containers with things
                                            I made to sell.

                              The 'chocolate' cakes I made for centerpieces......

                                In this wicker basket I keep lots of fabric snippets,
                                       find it hard to throw them away...... :)

                                  Love to alter perfume bottles, there are some
                                   lovely friends that save their empty bottles
                                                        for me.....

                                         The book is a work in progress
                                         it contains little thriftshop finds,
                                 that I have for years and didn't know where
                                                     to put them
                                              a ' junk book ' to be....... : )
                                         Hope to show you in a later post
                                                  when it's finished........

                                   the man in the photo seems to be family,
                                          from a long looong time ago,
                                         but no one knows who he was.............
                                    well, kinda weird photo anyway  LOL               

                                  This desk with the (white) sewing machine
                                   is the one my father made his sermons at.
                                         He passed away in 1973 and I'm
                                         very happy to have this memory.

                            an other work in progress...it's an old jewelry box.....

                                     Some decoupage on the Ikea drawers....

                             This crazy quilt block is the result
                           of a CQ course I did some months ago.
                        It was given by Kathy Shaw, to see her blog

The Living Room Redo, a Doily Tablecloth and My Old Piano........


                                             Hello my dear Blog Sisters ,

                           Today I'd like to show you one of my latest projects,
                                            and a bit of the change we're
                                                  working on in our
                                                      living room .

                         Over a year ago , I told you that we were not that happy
                               with all the white in the room , simply too much.....
                                                      to our taste .
                            To read a post about the start of our redo click Here.

                                So we decided to add some darker elements ,
                           and started with the wall ( behind the beautiful painting
                                      by our son , it is there temporarily )
                                     and painted it a tone of sage green.

                         The brick wall was next..........here's a photo I made
                      on a winter's night , but it will give you an impression .

                             I 'm sure you can picture me lounging and
                                          surfing the internet : ).

                          The photo's of this abandoned apartment in Paris
                                       very much inspired me.......
                             I just love this combination of colors.........

                          The lace on the lampshade is a gold colored table cloth
                                  I luckily found in a thrift shop ( where else : ) .
                              The pillow cases are from vintage fabrics and match
                                         the colors in the globe picture.
                          We chose this picture because Mr.B. was a geometrician
                                             and the colors of course....... : ).
                             All in all I wanted to add something more masculine ,
                              considering all the lace my dear one has to look at........


                        A dark floor was a long-held desire of my Mr. B : ).
                        But a dark floor and a dark dining table and chairs....
                                    was again a bit too much , sooo.....
                                   there we found our selves painting
                                  something WHITE again......HaHa....


                                       I know !!
            you must think : ....."Why do these people drag around
                             their furniture all the time....... ???                                                                                                             and what is Mr. B. up to.... ?? "                                              
                                   Well there's a simple reason                                                                                   
                        we have a Winter and Summer formation : )
                     and I took pictures in the middle of some moves......
                     but since we isolated the ceiling in the back room
                            we can also be there in the winter.....: )) !
                                        So there you are......... ; )
                           ( Little thing is that in that way we can't
                         sit on the couch in front of the wood stove
                             hmmmm.....what can we do about that......? )
                        ( more about picture above later in this post ).
                       Now here's one of my latest projects
                       A table cloth I made of vintage doilies....
                         I like the 'Shabby Chic' feel it has,
                       together with the table and chairs now.....

                                 here are some photo's...
                   The beautiful flowers are a Mother's Day gift
                            from son # 2 and my d-i-l  !

                                    My desire was a piano , just to look at
                                       and as a great addition to the room .

                                  I found one on the internet for only 25 Euro ,
                                ( see.....how good it is to surf on the internet ; )  ?!
                                           it was not far from our town......
                                  and yes , my dear , sweet Mr. B. volunteered.....

                                            Thank you so much , my love !!

                                                   and here it is......

                                                  "My old piano....."

                                            Hope you enjoyed......
