Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful
William Morris

I need to put this into practice and
made it one of my goals for the Summer

Here's to a wonderful weekend, sweet friends

    So very true. Every few months I feel the need to purge even more things. It is all starting to look just like things I need to dust :)
    Happy Weekend to you as well.

  38. Hi Saskia!
    I'm totally with you on this! It's been my goal for lots of years...
    I'll let you know how I'm doing with this later on this summer ;o)

    It's time for me and Chris to give real hugs to Jason! I'm thrilled to see him!
    Enjoy all the free time and extra hugs now that school is over for the summer!
    God bless you, always ♥ Maria

  39. Hi Saskia,

    I have that quote written in my journal and something I need to do too. I love your sweet photographs.
    Hope that you and your dear family are having a perfect summer weekend, enjoying every minute of it.


  40. I love your beautiful photos and the words you write to us. My day is better after visiting your blog.
    Hugs from Brazil,

  41. Hoi Saskia,

    Zo lief die bloemetjes in het jampotje :-)!

    Ik wens jullie ook een heel fijn weekend. Vandaag viel het jammergenoeg een beetje tegen, maar hopelijk maakt het weer morgen alles weer goed!

    Bij jullie is nu ook de laatste schoolweek begonnen. Hebben de kinderen zin in de vakantie? Hier hoeven ze alleen nog maar hun boeken weg te brengen en hun rapport op te halen en dan zit het erop! Nog eventjes en we reizen af naar Parijs & Normandie....:-)!

    Een heel gezellig weekend,

    Madelief xox

  42. Thanks for visiting my blog. Great to read your blog and it is hard to get rid of things!
    Really enjoying your blog, glad I found it.
    Enjoy the weekend
    Gem xx

  43. Hi Saskia!
    Oh I know how that feels... to start a BIG project, especially in the kitchen, and then you must finish in time for dinner {or a late dinner!}
    I hope you were able to finish with a little time to spare for another cuppa!
    *happy Sunday to you, Saskia*

  44. Dearest sweet saskia, such a beautiful quote and your images are gorgeous! Have a lovely merry happy sunday and love to you!

  45. Happy weekend to you, too Saskia! :)

  46. Missed you, missed you, missed YOU!!!
    How are you all dearest Friend Saskia?? So, so glad to be sitting right here at my desk and write you some extra sweet lines!!!
    I bet things around there have been busy and summer vacation has come fastest than you expect them to come!!!rsrsrs...I am sure you will have the best time together!! Swimming, having ice cream, fresh juice, and all wonderful summer offers!!!

    My visitors have already left. You can realize how my sweet home is right now...yes...mess...laundry waiting for me? Oh, yes...bunches....rsrsrsrs...but be sure, dear Saskia, our friends made our days happier and we had much fun together!!! Aila was surrounded by hands and kisses and lots lots of care!!!! She adored that, of course!!!:o))

    It is cold and rainy outside. Winter is coming. Cold days but a warmed heart!!
    Much love to you all!!!!
