Welcome to my blog !! I'm very happy to have you .
Thank you so much Karen Valentine at "My Desert Cottage"
for hosting this event !!!!
Where Bloggers Create 2013 .
It's my first time to participate and I'm very excited !!!
My name is Wilma . I live in the Netherlands .
I started blogging two years ago , wanting to share what I like ,
love , adore and enjoy , and hope that others will see and feel the same ,
.........and will be inspired .
I hope you'll feel at home and enjoy the photo's of the makeover of
our attic into my studio .
Click photo to enlarge
I will also add a few pictures of some of my creations..........
We moved to this house almost eight years ago . We changed a lot already ,
it had a very seventies look and we like the Shabby Chic style .
The attic was very brown and dark . Changing it had no priority .
We used it as a spare bedroom for years and
I had the laundry hanging here on rainy days .
But I really loved to have a room for myself............ a sanctuary
to create or just sit , read and think.....you know......... ,
a place where a girl can find herself when everything
is just a little bit tooo much .
So we decided to give the attic a makeover .
It was done about a year ago, I hardly had followers at that time , so it will
be new to almost everyone .
With a huge "THANK YOU, MY LOVE" to Mr.B, my husband ,
I show you the pictures.........
I will always keep and cherish it .
old Baptist Church in (I think) Rotterdam .
I love it ( and her : ). She's a teacher now .
(I may not be on the photo's.....but I truly gave him a hand...........honest : )
Don't know what to do with them yet , but I couldn't resist .
They were only 2 ,50 euro a piece , and I took them all .
Maybe I 'll use them as standards for my glass sculptures .
( sure hope my English is OK..... )
We found this beauty in a sale on internet . Love it.....it was 10 euro
and I thought it might look great in my studio .
I planned to alter the Ikea drawers , and the cream desk turned white.....
We found a huge table in a thriftshop and painted it too .
Guess I couldn't wait to bring on my homemade cake decorations..... : ).......
I tried to find pictures that marked some important moments in her life.
The old sewingmachine was my dear mother's .
I remember her sitting at it and sewing all kind of clothing for her six children . She loved to do that .
My mom knitted a lot as well, even for our dolls .
She used to lay the results on the feetend of our beds in the evening ,
while we were asleep , so we would have a lovely surprise in the morning .
Such a sweet memory .
She's 84 now , a very strong and brave lady .
This beautiful drawing of the little sleeping girls I found in a triftshop as well
A beautiful chocolatebox I once found .
Beautiful , warm morning sunshine........
The lid of a box I altered .
An altered piece of vintage lace .
After some weeks and a wonderful job by Mr.B ,
at the end of a long day.........
I started decorating my new studio .
The altered Ikea drawers .
One of my fabricbooks .
(Still some details to do ; )
The texts are old and a gift from my grandmother to my parents at the age of
sixteen and seventeen , on the day they were baptized .
Making preparations for the Victorian Christmas Fair .
Hope you enjoyed the tour.
