A cosy home

Do you know what I mean if I say I'm suffering of Januari blues?
December always full of celebrations and parties and then there is Januari. Outside it still is dark, cold and rainy or snowy. Everyday life feels so boring. Nothing to look forward to yet, it will take a long time before spring is here.
Time to take some action!

I went to the flowershop and bought some nice flowers and plants.
I took a tray to serve drinks on that I never use and made it waterproof with foil.
I did some flower soil in it and put in the plants. Some nice blue glass stones on top of it and Yeah it looks nice!

Bring spring in my home

The tulips are placed in a very special vase.
I made it myself last summer when I explored the world of ceramics. It's not perfect, but I am so proud of myself I was able to make something with a round shape. It thought it would be very difficult to make a shape like that, but there are some tricks to make it easy :) And I love how the colours turned out to be. And best of all: It is waterproof!!! With no experience at all I've made a vase I can actual use!

2 opmerkingen:

  1. Oh ja, januariblues, dat ken ik. Heb ook al nflink wat bloemen gekocht, maar biju jou likt het al helemaal lente. En de tulpenvaas is super!

  2. I love what you did with the tray, how you arranged the plants & used the glass stones! Very pretty. Soon our florists here will be selling tulips, which I will buy... the bulbs are probably from Holland :-)
