In august, my housemates and I moved into a new place a few blocks over (I love my neighborhood too much to move too far away). Now that everybody is flocking back to the house with summer activities coming to an end it’s time to start giving this house a personal touch. I’ve done some basic stuff in my own room, but that’s nowhere near to coming together so I’m pretty much cosy camping with christmas lighting up there until I find the courage to put in my wooden floors.
In the meantime I finally took on the (pretty much nauseating, I’ll spare you the before-pictures) challenge of cleaning one of the bathrooms and thought that on top of cleanliness-at-last, it deserved some upgrading. So with my love for lettering surfacing after the painting I did for my father’s birthday I decided to tackle two problems at once : alerting privy-visitors of the fact that this toilet tends to be a bit of an overenthusiastic in the flushing department and ooohhh to make it pretty too!

I found this quote somewhere on a blog a while ago, it immediately made me think of someone who’s birthday just happened to be this Saturday. So I took the words to the drawing board and made my own little interpretation. Boom! Birthday gift.
Getting up on Sunday morning gets awfully difficult for me. Probably since Sunday mornings tend to take place pretty soon after Saturday nights ^^. By consequence I usually stay in bed and lounge about all day, but today I had something else to do. After an hour of sleepy public transportation I arrived at RITS café, a freshly redecorated bar here in Brussels, where I redid the lettering above the bar.

inbetween – me trying very hard to keep focus
Afterwards I went out for spaghetti, got home from my busy weekend and took a genuine Sunday style nap.
Day well spent!

I had searched for weeks before I found this old style trike just in time to still be able to put some paint on it. I was so happy to see she really liked it! Even though she’s barely 2 years old, she climbed on there herself and tried to paddle her way through the living room as soon as we’d unwrapped it ^_^!
A wedding invitation I did for a couple of friends arrived in my mailbox about a week ago. Yeey! Visiting Paris for Offf I hadn’t found the time to upload a decent picture of it yet, especially since I had to edit the dates/location/etc. for uploading..
The print turned out nice and crisp, it arrived inside a simple brown card with a ribbon tied around it, very cute, but I couldn’t keep myself from cutting it some soft corners for effect ^^.
