Always looking for a light, healthy snack, like I do? I found a great recipe! All you need is chickpeas, herbs and olive oil. 

My favorite seasoning is cajun, because I like spicy.

All you need:
chickpeas
cajun seasoning
olive oil
What to do:
Toss in a bowl and spread out on a baking tin. Bake in a 200 Celsius preheated oven for about fifteen minutes.


You can find the whole recipe at Natural Chow!

Another new favorite recipe is for home made Ice Tea. It's very easy to make. What you need:
1 liter of water
2 lemons
4 spoons of sugar
2 tea bags
What to do:
Heat the water together with the juice of the lemons and the sugar. Turn of the heat and place the tea bags in the water for ten minutes. Cool the tea until ice cold. That's it. Delicious!

Dream Catcher for Kids

Since I  told my daughters about dream catchers and what they are for they seemed to have nightmares e-ve-ry night and really, really, REALLY needed a dream catcher. And because they were pretty convinced the nightmares would stop as soon as they had a dream catcher in their bed, I better could make one as soon as possible. Being the sweet mom that I am, I immediately started, of course. 

The oldest needed a red one, the youngest really had to have a pink one.

Peacock Feather

I'm not really a fan of birds, but some of them have really nice feathers. Like peacocks. So when I found this lovely pattern, I wanted to make one, too. As a key ring holder. You can buy the pattern at The Curio Crafts Room.

Pink Vase

Do you remember the two ugly brown vases I embellished with cherry blossom last year? 


 They looked better than they did before, but still I wasn't entirely satisfied with the result. They were standing in my window the whole year, but now I altered them again.
I had some pink paint left from the side table I painted two weeks ago and had a bit of copper paint, too, just enough to give one of the vases a make over. 


I admit, it's especially the flowers that look so great! It's an orange Amaryllis and it's the orange that make the vase's colors look so vibrant. But still, I think it's progress that I achieved with painting the vase over again.
