Soldered charms

Just when my charms were ready to be soldered ...

... my converter broke :(

The garden

Such a joy to be in the garden again
 after all these dark months.

At the brocante

When I gave away three of my special
 jelly jars for Christmas, I was hoping to find
 a replacement at my favorite shop at 
the brocante in Arlon in spring.
 Today was the first time we visited after the winter 
break and I was lucky to find three more.

And I want to use this finial for hanging my necklaces.

I should have bought another one or two...

YA books

I started a little YA books collection for my daughter.

She mostly "reads" audio books, but I like the
 idea of having a paper copy of the books 
she loves most (and that she can take with 
her when she leaves the house one day).

Die Tribute von Panem (The Hunger Games) - Suzanne Collins
Sonea (The Traitor Spy Trilogy) -Trudi Canavan
Die Edelstein Trilogie (The Ruby Red Trilogy) - Kerstin Gier

(The Ruby Red Trilogy is new, the other books are "used")

Easter decoration

It's such a joy to put the Easter nests
 and the old chocolate molds in random
 places all over the house every year.
