Monday Love: Art journal



Smile for a while
While you do something you really love doing, even if that something is just "dolce far niente" sometimes. Some bits and pieces of an art-journal of mine. It is not as nicely done as others you can find in blogland, just a kind of work-book to keep track of my ideas and my progress. I have in mind to start a new one, while i still have time next week.

I'll be going on another little vacation, this time to Scheveningen, in the south of the Netherlands. just me and my old guy, to smell some ocean air and feel some sand beneath our feet, before a busy and hopefully colorful and autumn starts. 
Have a great week sweet friends, i'll soon be back and catch up with you!

  5. Ooh, you are coming to the Netherlands! Scheveningen is a lovely beach. You can sit down and watch people passing by for hours and hours. Go for a stroll along all the little shops and do eat a fish, meine liebe Freundin. The weather forecast is good, sunny but not too hot. I am looking forward to your story already.
    I like the idea of an art journal, happy creating a new one!
    Alles liebe xxxx

  14. Have a wonderful holiday! We had a fabulous weekend, 2 couples we have known forever came for a B&B weekend, and it was so relaxing and fun and the weather was perfect! Which is a blessing considering the non-summery weather we've had the past 3 months.
