Just a lovely song

Here 's one of my favourite songs, sung by good old Lee Marvin. Enjoy!

I was born under a wandrin' star
I was born under a wandrin' star
Wheels are made for rolling, mules are made to pack
I've never seen a sight that didn't look better looking back
I was born under a wandrin' star

Mud can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry
Snow can burn your eyes, but only people make you cry
Home is made for coming from, for dreams of going to
Which with any luck will never come true
I was born under a wandrin' star
I was born under a wandrin' star

Do I know where hell is, hell is in hello
Heaven is goodbye forever, its time for me to go
I was born under a wandrin' star

A wandrin' wandrin' star

(Mud can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry)
(Snow can burn your eyes, but only people make you cry)
(Home is made for coming from, for dreams of going to)
(Which with any luck will never come true)
(I was born under a wandrin' star)
(I was born under a wandrin' star)

When I get to heaven, tie me to a tree
For I'll begin to roam and soon you'll know where I will be
I was born under a wandrin' star
A wandrin' wandrin' star

I KNOW I KNOW! These aren 't cupcakes! And I know these have nothing to do with cute things and kawaii stuff. I KNOW these paintings aren 't happy happy joy joy, but my cupcakes are!
I 'm sorry, ladies, this is the way I paint, this is the man inside of me, screaming to get out!

I 've been away for a long time, biding my time, waiting for the right moment to go back to work. Here I am. It is time! I hope you 'll forgive me for having been away for such a long time, but I 'm back and I will be joining you with lots of more work!

P.S> I am not German, but the guy I paint IS!

Ladies Afternoon

The two young ladies: Hindele and Silna

cupcake earrings

cute little malls

millefiori beads, just to look at

my personal FIMO-stack

my cupcake collection

creation in progress

one of the first results, sooo cute!!!

you go girls! well made!

Judiths lovely bears, which were made into childrens earrings

the crystals used in a charming way

and finally a lovely spooky picture of the cakes and cupcakes in my smelly oven

Today my father and his wife Judith visited us and brought their daughter Hindele and her girl friend Silna. The ladies soon retired to the kitchen table to start crafting, using my FIMO-box.

They 're only 8 years old but have a very large attention span when it come to FIMO! They have been taken by the feared FIMO fever and so have Judith and I! We 're all addicted and I don 't think we can be saved. I don 't think we want to be saved either!
So we sat there for over two hours and had lots of fun.

I think the girls were able to create some very cute cakes, which were very tiny and had lots of detail! I think they can go very far, FIMO wise!

Take a look at my pictures and join in the fun!!!

Forest Lane Question







Since I was a child, I 've always loved forest lanes that disappear into the distance. I love not knowing where the path will lead to. Anything is possible and you 're free to make up any landscape that you like. I like imagining that I 'm on a quest, having to find a special magic tree or a some kind of temple with a lead!

Some forest lanes are more thrilling than others. I like dark lanes with tall trees and many turns. I also like going up and down on little hills and stepping over trunks and rocks.

My question to you is: Which of the following Forest lanes do you prefer and why? Which one is the most appealing to you, where would you like to walk?

Check out this new Blog!

Everybody, check out this new blog and follow this lady!!!! I couldn 't believe my eyes!

What I did with my Time

Hi everybody,

I know I know, it has been a while! But I haven 't been idle!
Look at how my Krijn and I transformed our bedroom into a very Laura Ashley-lovely place to be!
It used to be a stuffy old room, with a VERY big wardrobe, that used to block a window. We sold it for €200,= Euro 's and now we have much more air to breathe!
Let me give you a tour...

A peak outside the window.

Lovely fake flowers...

My antique desk which my great great grandfather made

Oh... AND... I 'm also trying to grow some vegetables, like courgettes, carrots, lettuce, tomatoes anddsome flowers. A real greenhouse was too expensive, but look at one can do behind the living room window!


All my pots, in which the cats like to sit and dig...

You see? I wasn 't lazy, but because of the first rays of sunlight, I just feel the itch to start improving my house and garden!

A Rainy Day in Dutch Nature

Today our little family went to the ' Veluwe', a forest-rich ridge of hills in the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands. I find going into the woods for a walk one of the best things one can do on a weary sunday afternoon. I always feel happy in nature, I feel my absolute self. Seeing my eldest jumping up and down and running around makes it even better.
I added some pictures to give you an impression of Dutch nature in the rain. Hope you like it!
