So glad that you found me! My blog is about everything I love like gardening, decorating my home & garden and crafting. Although I'm from Germany I write my blog in English so that hopefully every visitor can read it. Hope you'll stay a while and will leave me a comment so that I know that you were here! xoxo Carola

Hi Carol,
The pictures of your garden are so pretty and your altered book is just fabulous.

Maggie Ann said...

Your hydrangeas are the most wonderful colors and once again...you've made a beautiful sight for the eyes! Referring back to a comment about magazines...really, are scrapbooking magazines not published much in Germany? What type of crafting is popular where you live?

Carol said...

Yes Robyn they are and they are dry now. I've only had a few this year but my mums garden ist full of hydrangea bushes and she made me the wreath.

Hi Abe/Happy again lol *waves* I'm glad you've found me! See ya!

Hi Emkay, welcome to my blog! No I keep them in the house now. It's raining outside. Thank you! :D

Laurie I'm very happy that you like my alterd book so much :D

Maggie Ann thank you again! No scrapbooking isn't really popular here, people here like to do things with paper napkins oops it's difficult to explain in English. They cut the pictures they like out of them and then they glue them on plant pots or other things and then they paint them over with lack (laquer?)to make them weatherproof. It's a technique which is very popular, but I dont like it. I think it's mostly kitsch. And another thing which became really popular is to make lampshades from vellum paper or to paint specified motives on canvas, which you can all buy in craftshops.
