One of my goals for this week was to make some new brooches. I must have summer on my mind, because I ended up with an icecream cone. Our local 'gelateria' will open again next month and it would be great if the first scoops of icecream will be accompanied by sunrays. My mom got me a beautiful rose as a surprise after work. Talking about work, on my way to work I always see this black and red eyed dude, but I've never taken the time to get of my bike and take a picture of him, until last saturday. As you might know I love sending and receiving old fashioned mail* and this card and gorgeous stamp are from Vatican City. Lots of time this week was spent watching the Olympics. The last photo is actually my Christmas washi tree. Or what's left of it. I've also made some changes to the lay out of this blog. It's not yet what I have in mind (I blame Blogger, but it just might as well be my computer skills), but it's slowly getting there where I want it to go. What have you been up to this week?

Nature has summer on it's mind, spring must be on it's way.Delete
that "tree" is such an interesting way to display pictures. I may have to steal it. lolReplyDelete
I like to recycle, so a tree isn't an exception :-)Delete
Love your new brooches. And what a beautiful rose!ReplyDelete
Thank you! And what not to love about pink roses :-) ?Delete
Love icecream! I'm guilty of having it for breakfast in summer :)ReplyDelete
That sounds like my kind of breakfast :-)Delete
I think you did good and you've earned a drink ;)ReplyDelete
so do I! ;-)Delete
I love your little ice cream cone! I too have summer on my mind because we've had such a rough winter. I love the guy with the red eyes too. I do get so jealous of your street art. When Brian and I went to the Lake to photograph the shelf ice (which is melting quickly now) I noticed that our downtown area just added some really cool sculptures. Looking forward to photographing them when the weather gets nicer.ReplyDelete
As always, I love your week posts, they are my favorites!
I'm looking forward to your sculptures! A lot of the graffiti walls have been painted over, and are white now. I hope someone sees that as an invitation to make some new awesome artwork :-)Delete
Aww...how sweet of your mom and your ice cream cone is adorable! Have a beautiful start to the week, darling and talk to you soon:) xoxoReplyDelete
I hope your week is going good so far. Temperatures are getting higher, so I'm happy :-)Delete
I love the ice cream cone! I'll definitely drop you an email to join in the post card exchange - Hawaii has some neat cards to share!ReplyDelete
I'll send you an email back!Delete
Love the new layout, Marieken:) Very clean. And yay for the Olympics.ReplyDelete
