Hi everyone!

Dear, I haven't been very productive since last week, I was just working a lot. I had a lot of ideas though. I have to get myself a sewing machine, because I have a nice idea for a bag and some other things. A while ago I already made a nice little bag and I wanted to do some more but I did that with my Mum's machine and that is still at home ;-)

I got some good news from a friend I met in Ireland. She's from Brazil and I haven't seen her in ages but now she's probably coming back to Ireland, that would be so great!

Unfortunately my holiday plans are still not fixed. A friend of mine who had thought about coming to Spain with me can't come now and I don't know if I can afford it on my own as I wanted to go by car. Now I'm thinking about going to Ireland instead. I don't know... But what's good is I might go to Paris for a weekend in October with two friends who are living in Cork, that would be great. I have never been there and I miss the two of them a lot.

Well, I'll keep you updated and I hope to be able to show you pictures of the bag and all soon.

Jenny, xoxo

Well, there are the pictures, finally, the ones of the oven cloths:

and then some I took of the decorations in my flat:

 I got some old records from a vintage store and decorated my living room with them.

 I even used them as picture frames and I'm in love with the idea.

 That's my tiny little kitchen with lots of postcards and lovely pictures on blue color. When I moved in it was simply white and looked very boring.

 I also decorated the kitchen shelfs with records and tiny pictures with funny sayings on them. I didn't get to choose the kitchen myself, it was already in the flat and it's not too nice so I had to do something about it.

 That's my bedroom door decorated with lots of pictures (mostly advertising from magazines). I love that these pictures here and in the kitchen make the flat more colorful as it's mostly white, white furniture, white walls...

 I got those from my Nana when I was at home the last time. She got so many flowers for her golden wedding that she offerd that I could take one. And I just love flowers and plants in my flat. I've got loads of them...

Oh, and of course I have a tiny Ireland-corner. It's just a shirt I bought in Cork, decorated with my St. Paddy's Day hat and a shamrock. Also it has those tiny lights so in the evening I can turn them on and have a very lovely light in my living room. Oh, it's beside my dining table, by the way.
I hope you like my pictures, it's just so that you have some impressions of how I live.

I still haven't got a new haircut, by the way but I coloured my hair a bit darker. It's a mix between black and red. It's really dark but lovely.

Something else: I am thinking about getting a new camera and starting to take more pictures just because it's so much fun. Does anyone know something about cameras? I'm new to this topic and I don't really know where to start looking and how much I'm going to have to pay...

Anyway, that's it for now,

I'm just thinking about cutting my hair again. It's pretty long and I'm not sure how I'd like to have it. Whenever I see a girl with nice short hair I want to have short hair again. Like today, I watched football and that one girl, Megan Rapinoe from the American team has really lovely hair...
What do you think? Long? Medium? Short? (and don't even get me started about colors ^^)
Hey there,
it's me again. A lot of things have happened since the last post. Short version: We just made it to the Scouts camp on my birthday when my car died. It was probably just too much but I'm glad it happened there and not on my way back to Cologne or something. Anyway, it was very sad and I had to leave it there. Besides that we had some lovely days there. When I came back my Mum and me went looking for cars as I said I definately want a new one. We were driving around looking at used cars and found a lovely turqouise Nissan Micra which I now bought two days ago for a very reasonable price. I'm pretty happy with it although I am flat broke now...
Right now I'm back at my parents' because my grandparents have been married for 50 years now and there's a big celebration going on until tomorrow. It's unbelievable that someone is married for such a long time and I'm pretty proud of them. My Mum and Dad have been married for 25 years now which is pretty impressive, too, especially because my Mum is still so young.
Now, I have been a little productive and made some lovely watermelon-shaped oven cloths. I'll show you some pictures when I'm back at home.
Tell me, has anyone some nice ideas for lovely decorations for the summer? Or any other summer plans? I really hope to go visit a friend in Spain in September. What are your plans?
