Autumn holidays

While cleaning out the attic, my son found some old Turkish money and an old purse. My daughter was very jealous, since she also wanted to have a purse! You know how children are! So, I decided to sew her a purse and this is the result:

I used the pattern from Amy Karol's Bend-the-rules sewing.

I also wanted to show you how beautifyl my Easter cactus looks. It's supposed to bloom in April, but hey, who can follow the seasons lately?

We have great plans for our attic! We want to make it our own private space, with a huge bedroom, a dressing and a small bathroom, a place for us to relax and wind down. As you can see from the photo, we have a lot of work ahead of us! At the rate we are going, it will take us a couple of years, but we don't mind, we are patient.

This picture is taken at our attic. You can see a beautiful old closet that we got from my parents-in-law. We will have no space for it anymore, but I've got plans with it! I'd like to paint it and put it in my daughter's room! The only problem is that I can't decide which color to paint it... I hope that in the next few months, I can show you an 'after' picture of the closet.

That's it for now, the kids have autumn holidays and I also got a week off from work, I hope we can do some fun things together!

Hallo Linda,
Wat een prachtige kast! Die zou mijn dochter ook graag op haar kamer willen hebben hoor.. Ook het portomoneetje/tasje/etuitje is erg snoezig (en netjes!). Trouwens, mijn lidcactus staat ook bijna te bloeien (donker roze/rood), ze zit vol met knoppen. Maar die bloeit altijd twee keer per jaar. Ik dacht dat dat zo hoorde. (Er komt nog wel een foto op mijn blog te staan)Veel plezier deze week en groetjes van mama lieveheersbeestje
