Guestblogger: Elly van Trappen

Hi girls! I'm so proud to be today's Guestblogger at Vicki's! First I will introduce myself (and appologize for my bad English!): I'm Elly from the Netherlands, I've a husband (happily married for 13 years now) and we've 2 boys (Tim, 13 and Luuk, 11) and a girl (Bo, 9). We live in a very small village in a very little cottage. But I really love our little home sweet home! My home is my greatest passion. I love to snoop around on fleamarkets, thriftstores and carbootsales and I'm so happy when I find something lovely to take home with me! I love that treasure hunting!

White is the base of our home, but in the kitchen and entrance I've used some splashes of  red

It looks so cosy don't you think?

Tableware is a little (???)  addicting of me! This is a little collection, our kitchen cabinet is stuffed with lots and lots more stoneware!

A little Fall in the livingroom: beautiful white heath/moor, behind 2 little and very old bears

And this is a glimpse of our bedroom. Again lots of white and vintage stuff

And there you can find a piece of another passion of mine: scrapbooking! I made the treasurebox on top myself.

Filled with lovely memories

and vintage goodies.

I also made a little album with old family pictures, fitting in this box.

But I like lots of other kinds of crafting, like making these little felt vignettes

Ahhh... I love those sweet colors!

Although I've mainly white in my home, in my crafts and scrapping I like to use color!

Especially the sweet ones!

Well, I hope you liked my guest post! Vicki, thank you so much for this opportunity! We don't know each other in real live, but we are blogbuddies for ages! You know I admire your scrapstyle very much!

Elly, how much you remind me of Vicki. You have streaming thoughts and you make me feel right at home. I always miss my friend when she is away but you made me feel right at home and som comfortable! I love your sewing skills as I have none. I can't sew and I am jealous of your talent. Your home and children look delightful! Thanks you so much for sharing.
