the morning started with lots of hugs and kisses...these little
hearts (with a little help), warm croisants, some orange juice
and coffee latte and a lot of fresh white and yellow hand picked flowers
from the little boys...

You also can see a couple of key-cords I made. Since I always
loose my keys I tend to use a key-cord but they're so ugly I
don't want to wear any. So I just cut of the fabric of an ugly one
and made myself a lovely dotted and ric-rac key cord! Like them!!

See this lovely 'table-cloth-holders' .... We used to have some
when I was a little girl...

And this was absolutely my most precious gift... my boy (5 years old)
embroidering!! I couldn't get enough of seeing him so concentrated
on his work... I also made him this blouse he is wearing with
little wooden apple-buttons. I didn't make any clothes for two
years orso...thought it was too diffucult but it wasn't so hard at all
so I'll do it again.

Here you see him working on his peace of art..a snake....
sooooooooo cute :)

Hope you enjoyed your mother's day too!

What a little sweetie you have there...that embroidery is extremely neat for a five year old. I think he has some real talent!!! Looks like you had a lovely Mother's Day.

You made that shirt? Excellent! He will be very well-dressed.
I love your photos, always so bright with color. Very sweet picture of the creative little guy. :)

Hi Erna,
Wat een leuke foto's van jouw jongen aan het borduren. Ik hoop dat die van mij ook zulke dingen gaat doen als hij wat ouder is.
Moest ook denken aan de site van SouleMama op flickr. Allemaal foto's van het creatieve gezin naar aanleiding van haar boek. Die van jou kunnen er zo tussen!
groetjes van Ria
