a Sprinkling of Love

I hope you had a lovely long weekend
It's a new week, a new month and a new year
with many wonderful things to look forward to,
beginning here with a
little sprinkling of love from me to you

Did you make resolutions?
I did not, I never do
what I did do was reading the next sentence somewhere

Simply become who you are

I think it a wonderful thought
pinned it onto the mood board in my kitchen

Enjoy this new day, this new week, this new month and this new year,
sweet friends !

    Looking forward to your posts throughout 2011.


  20. Agree with that statement very much! Just simply being who we are is more than enough of a resolution for me too. May you and your family have a blissful new year!

  21. Happy New Year...

    resolution or not im sure you'll have a beautiful days ahead ...

    xoxo ,.. yhosie

  22. I don't do resolutions either.

    Love the fabric...

  23. Oh, sweet , sweet Saskia!!!!
    Thank you for the comment!!!!
    It means so much to me!!

    I hope the new year will bring lots of happiness and joy for you and your family, aswell!!! May all your wishes come true!!!

    Have a glorious day!

  24. Dearest Saskia,

    Yes, the Efteling I know from about 30+ years back... Did you bring those sweets from there? I don't know those either. Looks like 'spekkies' with sugared coating but I might be totally wrong. Not living in a country anymore we cannot keep up with your market supply. Anyway, I'm not supposed to take sweets since a couple of years. My blood sugar level was perfect last check up and it appears that looking at sweets doesn't cause any harm...

    Enjoy your first week of 2011. My 'Papa' in Limburg is 90 today (the 4th is already on for you; not yet for me...).

  25. Ooh, all the Rubie girls are loving the sprinkles, Saskia :D Fabulous quote that you found, I love it! Hope you and your sweeties are having a wonderful start to 2011. Huge hugs to you ~ Txx

  26. I love your sweet thought....it is soooo true. I am soooo happy you are home..I missed my daily dose of you my sweet friend.
    Now you know the word "sprinkles" is my favourite....how do you say that word in dutch? I need to start using it!

    Happy hugs for week one of 2011...off to school tomorrow to see my little chickadees....xoxoxo

    Please tell us all about your weekend.

  27. Happy New Year Saskia!
    I am so glad to have met you in Blogworld! You are so uplifting, inspiring, and spread so much sunshine! You keep being you, your really good at it!
    Could you be me for awhile, he he
    love gi gi

  28. Voor jou ook een happy new year, kom graag altijd even bij je aan hoor.
    Alleen dat engels dat kan ik niet zo goed volgen, hihi een idee voor mij om daar es mee aaan de slag te gaan wie weet.

    Fijne dag vandaag groet Stina

  29. Hi Saskia!
    Yesterday at church the pastor talked about attaching a Christmas card with the three kings over a doorway in our house ~ to remind us to always seek Christ. I love that as a resolution for always *
    blessings to you dear friend ♥

  30. dear saskia...
    i so agree...i pray that God will continue to mould me into the best i can be... wishing you many blessings in the new year... xx pam

  31. Mooie woorden voor een mooi nieuw jaar!

  32. Wat een vrolijke kleurig foto Saskia. En hele mooie wijze woorden.
    Ik heb trouwens ook geen goede voornemens hoor. Gewoon lekker zo door gaan. Misschien wel wat meer weer gaan wandelen want dat is er de laatste tijd bij ingeschoten.
    Ik wens je een fijne week toe.
    liefs Ester

  33. Een lekkere foto -so lief beginnen het nieuwe jaar on such a happy note! Het liefspreuk is wonderwel - much better then a long list of resolutions. Am thinking about mine today ... want to renovate my blog a bit, let's see! Een fijne dag en tot gauw!

  34. Voor jou ook een,
    fijne dag
    fijne week
    fijne maand
    fijn jaar
    Ik zit hier te swingen op de stoel met dit heerlijke muziekje.
    Sprinkling of love ziet er lekker en vrolijk uit.

  35. Hier ook geen nieuwjaar voornemens, maar vooral vasthouden aan die prachtige gedachte op je blogje van vandaag, lijkt me een veel betere optie :-)

    Lieve groetjes,

  36. Mooie woorden, wens jullie ook een fijne week en kom volgende week je gewoon weer een fijne week wensen. Leuke vrolijke muziek trouwens, lieve groetjes Esther.

  37. GOOD MORNING PRECIOUS ONE! It looks to me that I missed your prior post...how did that happen??????

    MY DEAR FRIEND...I never make resolutions either. BEING YOU is what has hit me just in the last six months....and you know what? At 52 years old, I am finally fitting into my skin of WHO I AM. That is all we can ever be after much education, many experiences.....who we are is a gift. You are a gift to me dearest Saskia. I am so stunned that I missed your last post. OFF TO SCHOOL I GO NOW...it was a lovely two weeks off to play with friends. MILLE BISES, Anita

  38. Niet alleen worden wie je bent maar vooral ZIJN wie je bent...mooie gedachte voor deze 'brand new day'!
    Geniet van deze dag, lieve groet Jolanda

  39. mooie gedachte aan het begin van een heel nieuw jaar!
    lieve groet van Tjitske

    Your weekend sounded wonderful a true delight, especial to start a new year in this way!!!!! And your quote I adore it, the first of the year and the week and the month so many first that will become us, I wonder were they will lead........

  49. Dear Saskia,

    Such a beautiful photo and words you have shared.
    I never make resolutions, used to, but now I think that it is better to be happy and be who you are!
    Hope that you are having a happy week

  50. Lieve Saskia,

    Néé toch! Limburg is zwaar de overhand aan het krijgen op Blogger... Chantal van ABACAXI and HORTELÂ uit Roermond; Nicole van Rêve douce uit Heerlen; Lynda van Een klein stukje van mij... uit Grubbenvorst en jij uit Brunssum en Heerlen... Zelf kom ik uit Horst!
    Mogelijk kende je dan nog de tante van Pieter (mijn man) die een frietzaak had in Brunssum. Haar naam was Van den Broek - Peer maar de naam van de zaak weet ik niet. Tante Tonnie was het.
    Vraag nog maar eens na.
    Kleine wereld is het en best léuk.
    Jij doet het goed met je blog in het engels; erg leuk en met goed resultaat ook.
    Spontane no-nonsens griet met leuke, levendige kinderen. Je bruist van het leven en dat werkt lekker aanstekelijk. Zoals mijn joie de vivre van mijn 27 november blog.

    Heel veel liefs en we gáán het winnen met onze meerderheid!!!

  51. Hey friend!
    Beautiful thought! I'll follow it :D
    I think this year will be great! better than the other one!
    It's been good for now, I hope it lasts all year :D
    And I wish the same for you there :)


  52. love it, saskia. simply 'becoming who you already are', is ideal.

    anything with sprinkles is a hit with the girls.

    hope your new year is off to a rocking start, my friend.


  53. Love you sprinkles of love here! The fabric is so cheery too...adorable mixed with those cute sprinkles!

    I hope your New Year is sprinkled with blessings of promise and hope for a bright & Joyous Year to come!!

    Thank you for your encouraging words!
    XOXO Gloria

  54. Ooooo Love that picture! Your blog is so happy and joyful. Thank you for sharing and thanks for commenting on mine.
    You are a dear!
    Smiles to you in this new year!

  55. SASKIA MIJN LIEVE SASKIA!!! Oh dearest, now that school is back on, I AM SO BUSY! I had forgotten, being off for two weeks, how much time is spent traveling to work (one hour each way) and then having after school meetings. Whew.....I am so glad to hear that your trip to ELFLING was FUN!!! And that is exactly where I thought you would be. I had seen pictures of it on another Dutch blog and was automatically ENCHANTED! Now you dearest, YOU must get back on YOUR FEET after hanging upside down, and being twirled around by your wonderful children! My sweet students are wild because it is so cold outside that the school will NOT allow them to play outside during recess so they are like wild ponies confined in a small cage! But I love them dearly and we will all manage until the warmth comes back to us in MAY!!! Sending you much love dearest, Anita

  56. Hallo Saskia

  59. Hi Saskia! That looks absolutely delicious! Happy day sweet one, xoxo alice

  60. Wat leuk de Efteling, dat is heeeeel lang geleden. Was het niet en beetje koud? Of viel dat juist het afgelopen weekend weer wat mee?
    Ik wens jou ook een schitterend jaar vol met liefde en nieuwe uitdagingen.
    Hier ook geen echte voornemens, behalve dat ik wat meer moet gaan bewegen. En daar ben ik afgelopen dinsdag mee begonnen. Dus gaat goed.
    Bonne soirée
    Bisous Michaja

  61. I don't make resolutions either, but I do love your sentence. I think I clip that one up on my wall too! ... and you are such a beautiful person Saskia, always happy and upbeat. It's always wonderful to visit here! xoxo Paulette
