A quiet one

Yesterdays flea market find..
Sunday snail mail
Apartamento #5

Lunch
Reading in bed on a grey and rainy day
What a very unusual weather we have here.. Instead of sitting in parks, reading books and enjoying the warm sun of May...I am sitting here drinking tea wrapped up with blankets...

It really wasn't the best conditions to be on the flea market with a little stall yesterday as it was supposed to rain all day. But I did go with all my boxes and it was fun to see all the people coming by and to sell all sorts of things which were lying up in the attic un-used way too long. And in the end it didn't rain. What a great thing flea markets are..You can get rid of things and feel relieved and at the same time make people happy with finding bargains and tell little stories about a view pieces.
It feels great to have more space now and I can use the money for a not so cheap flight or many other things I am organizing right now.
Oh and I couldn't resist and got myself one tiny thing. This OXO cup which is standing right in front of me right now and makes me happy with its bright yellow and blue colours..a bit like the sun is shining with a blue sky : )

I was just very lazy today. Wrote a few cards, read in bed the new "Apartamento" magazine which came last week. I love the article about "the unlucky allotment".....There is this garden colony close by the place I live and it is so nice to watch the people gardening there...It must be a great feeling of growing your on vegetables and most of all eating them or giving them to friends..Maybe one day I will have the chance of having a garden with a veggie patch...

The other image I liked a lot was the one with the red/white heart in the back. I have dear friends living in Copenhagen which once crafted those for me for Christmas...It made me smile because it reminded me so much of them..

I wish you all a wonderful start in the new week

It does rain here, and I spent a lot of time online which led me to subscribe to Apartamento earlier today! I can't wait to receive it. And, nice mug!

sounds wonderful! i've been writing lots of cards myself lately, it's such a joy :) I like the little drawing on the envelope!

My dear friends live in Hannover. Hopefully I will get to visit them someday soon.... I like that sound of a coffee with you in Melbourne - it would be great :)

Maria,
I´ve just read that you are moving to Sydney in the other post. Just say that you are very brave and that I hope everything is gonna be ok.
Real life is made of this kind of important decisions.
Best wishes from Spain.
(I like your blog very much)

Maria said...

mm, the sandwich!
I've just booked a table/stand at a local fleamarket, have too many things to get rid of. Fleamarkets are GREAT.

I'm dreaming of my very own garden too.

stephanie renee said...

Dotti said...

Maria, ich muss dir beipflichten: Flohmärkte sind einfach befreiend. Und Gemüse aus den eigenen Garten stelle ich mir wie das Größte überhaupt vor! Wirst du bald einen Garten haben?

die zeitschrift ist großartig! wirklich schön. und ich hab auf dem bild eine schreibtischlampe entdeckt, die mein bruder aus alten beständen meines vaters ausgegraben hat - und ich habe total übersehen, dass die eigentlich ein totales kultobjekt ist :)
