Inside beauty.


Yesterday morning I decided to make a little bike-tour in the morning, to relax. It felt so great to feel the cold on my skin, and see the beautiful autumn sun show his first shines. Perfect way to de-stress.
I thought it was a good idea to go to the thriftstore. It felt like it didn’t was my lucky day, but then suddenly I opened (by accident) a big dirty cover of a map, and I was speachless about what was in it. A full research of someone who studied lace. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I took it home with me, I’m so happy with it. Maybe I’ll make a new map of all the information, so it will become a beautiful book with lace and drawings. I don’t think making lace is something for me, just like how it looks, and love the drawings they make before they start making it.

I also found some beautiful handkerchiefs with little embroidered flowers en lace. Very pretty and fragile.

Happy weekend.

| My lovely sweet cats, Pupuce and Emile | The blue doily is almost ready, but my wire isn’t long enough to finish it. Next week I’ll search for the same wire, so I can fix it. | Looking forward to my saturday-ritual, a walk in the city and a coffee at my favourite place |

    Die map doet me denken aan de mappen van m’n mama toen ze nog kloste. Ziet er net hetzelfde uit.
    Hele mooie vondsten die zakdoeken.

    Geniet van je weekend!

    waaw hermine, echt cool. Die map wil ik ook wel eens inkijken, denk dat heel inspirerend kan zijn, die motiefjes en patronen. En om er een boek van te maken…. hehehe dat zie ik wel zitten hoor 🙂
    Geen erg dat je blauwe draad te kort is, je weet dat ik hou van onperfecte zaken, dus misschien wel leuk dat je nu verplicht bent om het zo on-af te laten, of verder te gaan met een andere (fluo)-kleur.
