this old wood...

I was fortunate to get my hands on this old wood recently.
It comes from an old carpenter that used to collect
all kinds of old things like wood, doors,
windows, etc. and he often wrote on them where
they came from, on this he wrote Bægisárkirkja!
which is an old church buildt in 1858. The church has
been renovated through the years (1931,1954 and 1983)
and this old wood has probable been replaced with
a new one.

I am really grateful to this old carpenter for
having kept this for all these years.

going for red...

I usually decorate my house with
white things for christmas,

I'm going for red!!!
So now I'm getting inspired by these
lovely pictures.

new life...

I love to find old chairs that are in need of a make-over,
It's a passion of mine.
(I like to think that I'm giving them a second chance in life ;)
I have already quite many chairs and I have completed
redecorating some of them, while others
are waiting for the right moment to
get their new look!

this time I began making the textile
(for me that's the fun part ;)

I painted the chair with ( just) one layer
of white primer and then I sanded
it down again to give it a used look,
to get the patina I used two colors
of wax.

I't needed a new cover badly,
first It got some white linen,
which I stabled on, and then
I made some loose cover over
the linen so it will be easy
to use and wash !

a new life !!!

the chair before...

I'm already looking forward for the next chair make-over!!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

pink challenge...

Choosing the "right" shade of pink can be
quite the challenge, but I must say the
choices in these photos are
spot on!!

Let's celebrate with a glorious pink ;)

big cupcake day...

It's been a while since my last post as I have been
away on holiday, it's so good to get away from all the
routine and just relax and enjoy life.

But two days before I left we had our big cupcake day in our town!!
Each year a small group of mothers/women/friends organize
a cupcake party in our botanical garden.
We asked people to bake cupcakes and bring them to us,
and we then sold them and donated the money to
our maternity ward in our local hospital.
This time, like the year before, it was a great day ;-)

Here are some beautiful photos taken by my sister (Agnes),
and my son (Viktor) from that day.

what a nice couple ;-)

we decorated with candles and lots
of pom poms ;-)

a real piece of art don't you think ?

wow, which one do I choose ??

We got hundreds of home baked beauties and we
where so thankful for all of them.

We had live music

and a great atmosphere in the park that day.

Happy girls at the end of a wonderful day.
( We raised more than 3000 euros!! ;)
