I came home on Thursday, only to find out my internet connection has gone on a holiday… Maybe due to a thunderstorm that passed that day, I thought… On Friday, still nothing and I couldn’t reach my provider, so I have to wait until Monday :-(

Moments like this you realise just how much you use and depend on the online world! I miss my blog, I miss posting the photo a day challenge pics, I miss reading your blogs, Twitter, etc. A very frequent thought in my head these days: “I have to check out the… Oh, wait, I can’t…”

So for the meanwhile I’m going to be offline, hopefully not for long!

Miss you all…

Love, Zjizjipke!

Fave photo you’ve ever taken.

Or one of my faves that is :-) My mom’s roses bloom from May trough December most years. This results in some stunning views like roses in the snow!

Something you don’t know about me.

My name is Zjizjipke and I’ve got a really ugly kitchen… Terracotta floor, brown/green tiles, white/green cupboards, yuck!
I like retro and vintage, but this is not my kind of retro :-)Sadly a new kitchen isn’t cheap, so this summer I’m planning on painting the tiles and the walls…

Love, Zjizjipke!

In my bag.

The findings of our treasure hunt today! A yellow companion for my red, flowery thermos flask. And a purple bowl from Rosti Mepal, I love those melamine pretties!

Best part? I’ve only spent 2 euros :-) If my house was big enough, I would have spent more! I saw some really pretty cupboards… Someday! Someday I’ll go out and get me some nice, vintage kitchen cupboards!

Love, Zjizjipke!

Out and about.

A map for our trip tomorrow! Me and my BFF are going on a treasure hunt in Hasselt… Vintage and retro stock sale! Hopefully I can show off my new-old goodies tomorrow :-)
And yes, it’s a paper map (thanks Google maps!) My gps has gone to electronics heaven, so I’m back to the old ways now…

Love, Zjizjipke!

I was in doubt between posting a pic of bananas or my cute, little, retro cups… The cups won and the bananas got eaten :-)

Love, Zjizjipke!

The timer on the oven :-) My fave cooking tool for when I’m alone! Love pizza, homemade and the frozen kind…

Since I don’t really own any art, this is a preview of all the art I’m (hopefully) going to make in the future! I always think stuff I make isn’t good enough of perfect in my eyes, so maybe this book can give me the push I need to be less perfectionistic and just create…
Anyone got other tips?? I’m looking forward to hearing them!

Love, Zjizjipke!

Blankie (p)inspiration!

Well, it’s about time to show you some more of my favourite pins!

Today it’s all about gorgeous, warm and cosy blankies! While I’m (still) working on blankie n°2, I already have some ideas in mind for the next one!

Hope you like my (p)inspiration!

Love, Zjizjipke!

Best bit of the weekend.

Movie night with my BFF :-) Some snacks, a movie, a drink and perfect company!
Easy peasy, lazy mojitos when you don’t have limes or mint... Take some alcohol-free mojito drink, add rum to taste, enjoy!

Love, Zjizjipke!

6 o’clock.

Well actually ten seconds past six :-) My retro-ish kitchen clock was a bargain, only problem is the colour is fading over time… She was bright red once!

Love, Zjizjipke!

A nice, hot cup of tea! Because the Belgian weather has gone from all sunny and hot to all wet and cold… Looks more like Fall than Spring!

Love, Zjizjipke!

Hat? Hat? I don’t have a hat!!! Oh, wait, I do have one… From a new years party a few years back :-)
So, this is my one and only hat: a silver, sparkly one!

Love, Zjizjipke!

My horoscope sign is Leo, so I’m posting a picture of my horoscope for June :-)

Do I believe in them? No, not the ones in magazines and the fact that they can predict what happens next, but I do believe in horoscopes and characters. My boyfriend is a Libra and boy he does take ages to decide something… My BFF is a Leo too and we share so many (positive and negative) qualities!

Love, Zjizjipke!

A close-up of one of mum’s orchids. Sadly my camera doesn’t do close-ups like I want, so I took a pic with a decent camera this time...

Maybe, someday, I’ll have one myself :-) Anyone got some tips about cameras?

Love, Zjizjipke!

Trains waiting to bring everyone to work on the last day of the week… Under a grey sky today! Where’s the sun?

Love, Zjizjipke!

Go for June!

Well I had so much fun doing the #photoadayMay challenge, I’m going to keep it up in June!

The ‘photo a day challenge’ is started by Chantelle from fatmumslim, every month she posts a list what the topic of the day will be. You just have to post a picture on your blog, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or whatever and join the fun :-)

June topics are:


I hope you all are enjoying my posts and pictures about the challenge as well, all comments are welcome! Don’t worry, crafty and other posts are on their way as well!

Love, Zjizjipke!
