England! :D

Last thursday I finally arrived at Capernwray Hall, Carnforth, England. It is just so great to be back. I've been here last year, as a guest, for one week. This time I'll stay three weeks. And time flies because I have lots of fun. On friday there was a big bonfire, I'll upload photos later because the internet is kind of slow here. It was lovely and we were lucky because there was a dry period for some days, so the wood was dry enough for the fire. 

I share a room with 4 roommates. Unfortunately the room is located downstairs the conference hall and not in the main building (the castle). But that's ok, I don't have to pay for my stay (because I work in the dining hall - I have to serve food-), so I can't complain ;) 

We had quite some fun last friday, so let me share just a littlebit:
from left to right: me, Kathrin, Lubuw (both from Germany)

I guess it will be just one photo for now, it takes ages to upload one. That's the country side... ;) I'll (try to) keep you updated!

How they've grown!

I can almost use my basilicum plants! They've grown very fast. Don't they look amazing? <3 (have a full view look!)

Royal Dutch Airlines

Five more days and I'll be sitting in a plane again, on my way to my first destination for the summer. I have been flying before and I really like it, esspecially when the plane takes off. This time I will be going on my own and I'm really excited and a little nervous...but this old poster cheered me up. Look at that plane! That must have been quite an adventure, back in the days! I found this poster today in a thriftstore (yes, that's the main thing I do these days because I will be moving to another place after the summer). It is a poster from Royal Dutch Airlines, also called the KLM. And the funny thing is, I'll be flying with Royal Dutch Airlines! But this airplane is in a musuem now ;)

Last friday I visited a market where I found some amazing items. I've always loved thriftmarkets and I have a very good reason to spend money! 'Cause I'm going to move into my new room in September! Today I heard the big news and I still can't believe I've got the room. It is a room very near my school, so I don't have to travel so much (more than an hour four days a week). I feel so lucky! But my new room needs furniture. Which brings me back to thrifting! :)
This beautiful glass caraffe, with two glasses. So beautiful,  it makes drinking lemonade on a hot summerday even more enjoyable! 
In this beautiful old car they were selling french fries (which I did not buy because it was far too hot to eat anything so fat)
I love the colour of this one. Hopefully I'll find some mugs in the same colour somewhere...

This ruler makes it easy to keep all my little scraps of paper together in a nice way. 
This polaroid...I just couldn't resist. Very cute, still working (but I'll have to buy film first) and very cheap. Awesome.

Some day this week I'll have a second look at my room (sounds weird, but it is MY room now, in theory), make some measurements and than I will be able to start thinking about how I can make this room my own space...

50 mm love

Recently I bought the Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens, which is absolutely amazing. It works so well and I can't stop making photos! I looked at my blog and I realised I didn't upload so many new photos yet. So here they are!
Arizona Pomegranate Green Tea - lovely on a hot summer day!
The garden of my dad (he is a gardener) keeps bringing me joy.
Isn't this amazing? It is not even in full bloom!
My brother. Making a portrait is so easy now :) (plus he 's supercute ^^)
I so like this new lens! More to come! Or take a look at the earlier blog post about my photo project!
Have a nice day!

Day 004

Maakbaar (Amsterdam ) The word was also 'maakbaar' (= ' creatable') because the windows could be opened or closed. Part 004 of The 365 Days Project.
