DIY lemon boat - i'm sailing away ...

to take a trip with little lemon boat - to see, where the lemons grow - to Italy!

And so lovelies, i'll be taking a little break from blogging until ... we all go to France together soon. More about that at the end of this post.

Have been very busy making little boat  - along with other things - for a new project of our magazine KidsLife, called "GreenKidsLife", which is meant to encourage a greener, sustainable lifestyle in kids and families. But these would also make a very cute table decoration for a kids party - or even an adult party, why not?

 I've used cocktail stickers and a bit of paper to make the sail. And that is basically all you need, except for lemons you cut in half lengthwise. Give it a try. You can also write names on the sails, if you like. 

We'll have a family celebration in Rome next week, where my brother and his family are living. and i so hope to catch some sun there! As i get back, my friend Anita, from Castles, Crowns and Cottages will be hosting this:

which will be surely great fun. Check out more by clicking on the picture 

 Let's make the most of may, such a gorgeous month! I'm in love with all the crisp, bright green around and am sending you greetings from our garden. Hope you'll all have a splendid time - see you back soon!

    Hello there my dear! Though our weather is still not warm, we were out today and we went to the zoo, a Japanese garden and did a bit of shopping! So glad to see you came by and to hear you are GOING TO ROME? HOW wonderful this will be! Thank you for mentioning the link party and LOOK AT YOUR GARDEN! STUNNING COLORS MY FRIEND! I wish I could say the same for our garden, but we should start seeing some colors in about two weeks. I love your post on the LEMON BOAT! Aren't the lemons and melons just delicious in Italy?
