Great mail

I don't know if anybody had noticed that I was one of the lucky winners over at Jennifer's site. I won a set of beautiful decorated frappo bottles filled with goodies. The weather was great and the kids were playing outside, so I opened my parcel outside. Being on my doorstep reminded me of the old milk bottles we used to get when I was teeny tiny.

Displayed on my windowsill, you can tell how lucky I am with such gorgeous contents. I feel especially lucky with the trim. I only got Amy's book a few days ago and saw a wonderful headbank described in it, and these vintage trims are perfect to try to get that "Amy makes it look so wonderful" look.

Oh and not to forget to mentioning the keys. I love old keys and my wonderful parcel didn't just contain one beautiful key, but TWO. My daughter told me today she likes keys too (she didn't even see me play with them) and decided that since there were two, we could each have one. (I think I'll have to hide the keys...)

So Jennifer, thank you very much for sending me such wonderful mail!

Busy doing...

Constance kindly asked if I was OK. Doing very well, just very busy with arranging things for the upcoming move and ... reading Harry Potter of course. I didn't go to any fancy party but Some Pink Flowers tells wonderfully about one she went to. I just got up early and got a copy from Costco, where a man before me walked away with 5 full boxes. I feel an extra connection, since we used to live in Edinburgh. Not that this has anything to do with potter, but we lived near the Botanic Gardens.

Change of address

This is the card I designed to send to everybody, to let them know our change of address. It will all be offset printed in a nice heavy cardformat like these.

London

As I wrote we went to London. We didn't do any sightseeing at all though. Luckily I've been there many times already when I did and in the future I'll have lots of oppertunities to do so much more, because we'll be moving to London (or officially the greater London area).
I'm very excited. To give a little more background about myself, I was born in Korea. My parents moved to the Netherlands when I was one year old. I grew up there, so Dutch is my first language. After our marriage we moved to Edinburgh, where our oldest two kids were born. Then after four years, we moved to the US, where our youngest was born and now we are headed back to the UK. We're aiming to have all our stuff shipped end of this month, so I'll be a little sparse and even disappear a bit from blogland, but as soon as we're settled, I'll be back full time.

Since I always carry a D70 around, I would hope to take these type of pictures soon (all taken with a D70 by Phil Askey)

I've been tagged

How wonderful to be tagged by Some Pink Flowers with the rockingbadge_2_3.jpg award.
I feel so honoured, I feel like I'm dreaming



The only thing is that I'm supposed to pass it on to three others, but there are so many wonderful blogs out there, that I find it hard to choose. Another thing is that we'll be flying to some place in Europe for a week, so I'll happily postpone this decision till after I get back. For now I have to announce another blogging break, but hope to be back with new nice pictures.

Florida

They call it the Sunshine State, unfortunatly we had two whole mornings of rain! Still we had a very good time and the hotel we were in at Boca Raton was beautiful with lots of nice things to photograph.

You'd think I'd come back rested, but I was so tired I fell asleep while putting the little one to sleep, so didn't have my usual evening time to do things for myself. But now I've managed to put the pictures up.
