Project garden shed

After the long winter months, our garden 
shed is in bad shape.

It is definitely in need of some fresh paint.

I am thinking about red and white,
like the wooden houses in Sweden

(and like Pettson and Findus' house).

Love these books so much!

An abundance of red currants

The red green currants have started to appear.

We might leave them to the birds this year, because we still have so much jam and syrup left from last year.

Strawberry plants

We planted new strawberry plants in one of the
empty garden beds today.

It feels good to work in the garden again.

We miss them

Our two sons and the oldest son's girlfriend came
home from Germany for a long weekend.

The kids are always so excited when their big 
brothers come home. It usually gets a bit chaotic, 
but we had so much fun together.

The boys brought a new shirt and a watch for their little brother's birthday and he was so proud.

And now they're gone again. 
And we miss them.

Original T-Bag Designs

When we entered the workshop in Hout Bay
 (here and here), it caught her eye immediately. 
"Oh mama, look!"

Remember, made of used tea bags!
I found the perfect frame and she loves it.
It is such a beautiful reminder of our trip to Africa.

What I Wore Wednesday - 20th May 2015

Linking up with The Pleated Poppy today for WIWW!

I am wearing this Cream tunic over leggings and
 with my good old Gabor boots here, but as soon as
 it gets a little warmer I'll be wearing it as a dress
with sandals.

This long necklace (bought in Johannesburg)
 is made of silver painted pieces of wood.

37 pictures

I found 37 pictures on my camera card that I didn't take.

I think I have an idea who did!

Strawberry season

The strawberry season has started in our
corner of the world.

I bought these, but we are hoping for a good 
strawberry season in our garden too! 
We just have to be a little more patient.

White hot chocolate

In Johannesburg and in Cape Town bakery/café
Vovo Telo was one of our favorites.
Especially the kids liked their white hot chocolate.

We have tried to find this white chocolate in every supermarket we visited, but without success.
And no luck here in Luxembourg either.

Until I had the brilliant idea to check on Amazon UK. 
To make a long story short...we received two cans
yesterday and I am happy to announce that 
we have found it! The kids are excited. 
I must confess that I tried a cup or two and it's yummy.
