A photo of this wall was already posted on this blog when I just started out. Last saturday I came across the wall again, and thought it deserved a post of its own. I love that has has been like this for at least one and a half years now, and no one has painted it over. Some of the graffiti throughout the city (even the good ones) have been painted over after a while, but somehow, this one managed to survive. This one definitely deserves to be there, and to be enjoyed.

There's no denying, summer is over. Time to whip out the hot cocoa, blankets, lots of books, and candles. During a recent trip to the craft-supply-shop, I got a pack of clay (without knowing what to make of it). I'm like a loose canon in a craft store. I go in there, get all excited, and return home with a big bag full of new supplies (but without a plan). When trying to organise my new supplies and the ones I already had, I came across a bunch of studs and for some reason 'candleholders' popped into my mind. Maybe because the colder months are here, and I always want to cozy things up inside the house when those months are here. So I made a candleholder. Here's how:
What you'll need:
- Clay (I used a quarter of a kilo package)
- Studs, different colours, shapes and sizes
- (A thrifted) glass candleholder
- A sheet of baking paper, to keep your workspace from getting all sorts of messy
What you'll need to do:
Form a ball out of the clay
Place the candle holder in the middle of the ball and push it in the clay
My ball had gotten quite wonkey, so it needed some re-shaping
Push in the studs, while the clay is still soft
Let it dry, and ready is your candleholder
Are you getting more crafty in autumn and winter? Changing up things inside your home? Any decorating projects in the works? I'd love to here all about your projects!

Some random photo's from last week. And yes, I do realise most of them involve food :-)
Discovering a new brand of icecream. It's vegan and there are lots of other exciting flavours, like basil & lime, and strawberry & red pepper.
We received a paper edition of DaWanda's winter Lovebook. The online version can be found over here. So far, I could only find the German edition.
On wednesday my aunt surprised us around lunchtime with cheese with fenugreek from a local cheesefarm. I can't believe I've never been there. Although I can imagine it would be quite a dangerous place for me....
Adding some colour to our workspace with some plants, hopefully they are resilient little guys!

Happy World Post Day! I blogged about this special day last year, and I thought it would be fun to do a round up of all the stamp-photo's that have been up on the blog since I've started this adventure almost two years ago. Be warned, there are quite a lot of them! Some of them are truely tiny works of art. Some might say I'm a bit of a nerd, getting all excited over stamps. If you're a stamps aficionado too, I hope you'll enjoy this post. Cheers, this one's to World Post Day!

Just arrived at work after a cold journey. On my bikeride I was listening to the radio and they played this fantastic piece of music. Pour yourself a nice warm cuppa tea and give it a go. Other than that, I wanted to share some fantastic finds I discovered over at DaWanda.
