more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.

1. This week again passed by so quickly ! I did a little window shopping, but apparently it wasn't only the window, because I came back with 4 little pyjamas for the little grandson

to arrive end November. I put them against Rosie's basket for those who have forgotten how tiny newborn babies are.

2. I also had lunch with a friend who wants to start acrylic painting and needed some advices.
Next week I will teach her a little about the different techniques.

3. As it had stopped to rain and the sun was shining a bit, I went with Ilona to Blankenberge at the sea.

We sat on the only pier at the Belgian coast and had a pic nic, overlooking the sea


and played pirates !


We also went to the Sand Sculpture exposition and visited 5 continents and 40 countries in 2 h. It was absolutely phantastic and I will write a post about this later.

From 1st of September on schools start again in Belgium, the two months summer holidays are finished and I see that at the traffic on the roads !

Looks like you had a great time in Blankenberge. Have a great weekend Gattina!

The sand sculptures look amazing! And I know it's hard to resist buying baby clothes when you have a special little one on the way. :)

I love sand sculptures...people are so clever. Look forward to seeing the photos. New babies are rather tiny...our young neighbours have just had a baby and when I had a cuddle, she just seemed so small.

Faith said...

I love new born baby clothes!! how precious...will this be your first grandchild?
My oldest daughter is taking Acrylics this year...she is a senior and planning on majoring in Graphic Design/Fine Arts in college. I'll have to tell her I "met" an artist blogger!
The sand sculpture looks amazing!

This is what family is today, over the miles, everyone with their own lives.
