A little question...

I've been wondering if everyone managed to subscribe to my blog when I changed the name.

I realized that I got significantly less comments since I've made the change. Don't understand me wrong: It's completely fine with me if you're just a "silent reader", so am I because I read a lot of blogs and can't comment often. And even though I'm of course happy about each comment, I neither have to get tons of comments to keep my blog going. I just wonder where everyone disappeared to...

Maybe you could just leave a short message to this post that you are still there?
(and no, the number of my readers doesn't indicate anymore the number of people really managed to subscribe... so I have no idea who's out there!)

Have a wonderful weekend! Here, it's warm and sunny, finally again.

Fading Colors

When autumn is coming and the colors of the year fade, I always fall in love with vintage again...

It should be called the "Vintage Season"...

... and of course it's my favorite!

Now the summer vacation is over and the flea market season will begin again.

I'm ready for treasure hunting!

This means also changing a little bit the decor of our home with new old things...

... and working on new crafting ideas.

Let's hope for a beautiful sunny autumn (better than our summer)!
