I’ve been sowing and planting and repotting on my balcony, with my dear Mimi always in the vicinity. Some of my succulents I got as a gift from dear Sara. I can’t wait for all my flowers to pop their heads above the soil, and to bloom.
This year is the first time that I’m actually doing some real kitchen gardening. Since my balcony is too tiny to grow a lot of plants, I’m using a little plot of land in the city’s old harbor, where I’m trying to grow some veggies and fruits. Since it’s in the middle of the city, I’m growing everything in containers. I’m so happy to be able to use this space on such an amazing location, and I’m very curious to see how it will turn out. You can see some tiny previews on my instagram and I’ll make some nice garden pictures for the blog soon. It’s going to be so much fun (and hopefully pretty too) when it will all be green and edible :)
Things I like:
> My garden,
> Studio Meez’s jungle,
> All the orders in my postcard shop (thank you ♡),
> This movie,
> Being outside in the sun (first time outside with bare arms today, yay!).
Now I’m off to arrange my inside plants, a lot of them have moved outside so there’s some shuffling to be done.
Speak to you soon, dear blogfriends :^)
It took me some time to choose a winner for my give-away, but I blame it on the weather. It’s just been too good and I’ve been outside enjoying it to the fullest.
But a promise is a promise, so today I wrote the names of all the participants on a little piece of paper and put these in a bowl. I closed my eyes and picked Jade as a winner! Congratulations! You can choose 10 postcards from my shop and I’ll send them your way. For those of you who didn’t win and who would love to have some of my cards, you can get them here. They make lovely gifts for yourself and for your loved ones :^)
I leave you with a great song and with the link to my instagram, where you can follow my daily adventures. And now it’s time to go outside again! See you soon…
OH, AND THIS: All Ghent-people (and other interested people!) are invited for this event!! We’ve been working in this used-to-be-factory for over a year now and finally it’s time for the opening! Come say hi, have a drink and get a free guided tour in my urban garden :^) No, seriously, I’m very excited.
It was my ♡‘s birthday last weekend and we went for a walk in the woods. I could never have imagined that there was such a beautiful forest so close to our city! Such a nice place to walk and walk and enjoy nature at its best. And the weather was so good, we had the most wonderful afternoon… We made ourselves a deal to go walk there much more often from now on.
After our walk we ate delicious cake with candles and we drank champagne. To end the day we had a good dinner with the people we love the most and had a very, very good time. There couldn’t have been a more perfect day to celebrate the birth of this beautiful man ♡
I will soon let you know the winner of the give-away, thank you so much for taking part and for all the beautiful words :^)
Dear blogfriends, I just noticed that I reached over 2000 comments here! I almost can’t believe it! Blogging has been very hard for me lately, and this is such a big motivation to keep going on. And above all, it’s so nice of you all that you’re sticking with me here. T H A N K Y O U x 2 0 0 0 !
At 1000 comments I organized a give-away, so let’s do this again… I’m going to let one of you choose 10 postcards from my postcard shop, which I will carefully wrap together with some other lovely stuff that’s not in the pictures for surprise-effect :)
To have a chance on winning you just leave a comment beneath this post (please include your e-mail) and keep your fingers crossed. If you like my blog on facebook, I will give you an extra ticket in the lottery. Everyone can join in, so please do! I will pick a winner in 10 days.
Good luck ✤
(This is fun!)
This give-away is closed, I’ll announce the winner soon!
