In the rhythm of the needles

there is music for the soul.

recycle art

something I made with small objects from the flea market :

I don't know the word in English for this.  It's something you can use to put small chocolates, or cupcakes on. It's nice to present your little teabiscuits on, when you have friends over for tea or coffee. I find it has a lot of cosiness and a romantic shine.

I made it with old plates, saucers and glasses.  I glued everything together with an invisible 2-component glue. 
The yellow one with little romantic flowers is for myself.  The blue one is for my sister, she has white and blue dishes, it will match nicely.

I think it's a nice gift, and doesn't cost much (about 6 euros for the 2) and it gives me the good feeling of using old pieces to create something pretty.

  2. What I call 'een etagère' is a three tiered afternoon tea tray.... no online dictionary has found this translation ! I think it is indeed a typical English invention, to be able to serve all these yummy tea time scones and fingerfoods. What a great blog this is, by the way !
