SHOW & TELL

When our son came for Mother's day together with his girl Marieken, I stated with horror, that all bowls we had in the house were all slightly cracked, except the two once we always use. That happens when you are only two in a household. So first thing I did on Monday was buying new bowls. Not so easy to find because this year all dishes I saw were grey, black or white. Must be the crisis who puts everything in funeral colors.

But finally after 3 shops I found red once, just fitting into the kitchen and the rest.

They had brought me yellow and white tulips, but the white once bent down after two days, so I cut them and put them in this little vase so I am sure they will last for another few days.

The nicest and most original gift for Mother's day I got from Marieken. She had bought this little cat for me.

Isn't it cute ? It's a brush to clean your fingernails !

The little tongue is to clean under your fingernails. Of course I wouldn't use it, it stands on my sink in the bathroom.

and on tuesday I got another surprise a friend brought me this cute little cat, just like that for no reason, she had seen it while shopping and thought it would fit perfectly in my room !

I love your new bowls, they are so cheery. And the little nail brush is too cute.

Enjoy your flowers! Someone told me that if you add a penny to the water they won't wilt.

Have a wonderful weekend!
