(500) Days of Summer

I've wanted to see the movie '(500) Days of Summer' for quite some time. So Fleur and I saw it this week. It's such a lovely movie. The whole concept of love that isn't returned is not that original. But the I never saw a movie like this. There was one scene that reminded us of 'Enchanted'. I really enjoyed that one.

The soundtrack is amazing and we both love Zooey Deschanel (and her sister, who is the actrice that playes Bones). Anyway, to make you want to see it.. You can watch the trailer here.

Pretty Photographs.

It's such lovely weather that I just have to go outside. So a tiny post for today.
6 very inspiring and pretty photographs.

I feel kind of inspired by sunshine, green, flowers and spring today! (:

I really enjoy this version of 'Umbrella'. Don't know if you've already heard it, but it's fun to see how a song can change so much.

Tea & Muffin

I made muffins last week. They were delicious. I can't remember why I didn't make them before. When spring arrives and little flowers start to pop up, my mind starts to have a way of its own and keeps telling me I have to photograph in stead of doing homework. Naturally, I made photographs of the muffins.

I thought it would be fun to show us more of our photography rather then always showing the work of other people. This is the result!

Hee everyone,

I am really really sorry for not posting such a long time, but right now I just don't have my mind in the right spot and there is happening a lot.. I hope I will find the will to start again very soon.

For now I'm really sorry..
Fortunately their is the amazing Karin who does posts lovely things from time to time ^^.

DIY Button Earrings

I promised you a DIY today. So here it is. Quite some time ago I made these button earrings:
It's really simple.

First you buy/collect/pick out a few sets of 2 buttons:

Then you buy those little pieces of metal you put behind the buttons. I don't know what they're called, but you can buy them at every shop where they have supplies to make jewellery. And make sure you have some glue that can be used on both metal and buttons (My buttons were made of plastic, wood and metal so I just used a glue that works on all those materials)
You probably already guessed what happens next! Just glue the buttons onto those metal things.

It's also funny to use some thread in the buttons, then it looks like you really have a button on your ear. I haven't done this, because I thought of it later.

Just let it dry for a day. And then you have your earrings..


We kind of fixed the problem with my computer. It's working and I can work on These Lovely Things. Unfortunately, my keyboard doesn't work that well and sometimes he types a letter without my permission.
But who cares, I have acces to internet again..

I promised you a lot of new things we wanted to show you.
I'll post the first one this afternoon. It's a DIY!

M i l k

One of my favourite things is milk. I just love to drink milk.Unfortunately, I managed to throw some of it on my laptop and now it doesn't work like it should. All my school stuff is on it, so the teachers weren't that pleased. I can still use another computer at home, but since the time on this computer is a little limited I won't post that much.

I'm sorry. I have so much to show you.. You need to have a little more patience.


Floral Print Dresses

Although they kind of remind me of 'grandmother dresses' I really like floral print dresses. I don't own one. Yet. I just love the summery feeling they have. It makes me want to go outside, sit in the sun and make smoothies. :) So I've selected 4 pretty ones to show you. Every single one is a little bit different, but I wouldn't mind throwing them in my closet for the first sunny day!
Which one do you prefer?

I'll probably go for the first one.

In the Sun

I'm very sorry for the lack of posting lately. We're quite busy, but we'll try to make some time for you. :)

I just saw the music video of She & Him - In the Sun. It's such a fun video that I wanted to share. Another post coming tomorrow!

Simply beautiful.

A few weeks ago I came across this Etsy Shop. She makes such amazing paintings. They're very simple, but that is probably what makes them beautiful. I absolutely love them. Here are my favourites:
