Seeing Green

 It's almost June and the nature is getting greener every day. I've drawn inspiration from the nature around me in making a pair of slippers as a present for a friend. The green felt goes beautifully well together with the multicolored beads. Lovely, if I may say so myself :)

In the anticipation of a beautiful summer I (with A LOT of help from my dad) built a humongous vegetable grow box on our back yard. When empty, it looked like a coffin in the middle of our little garden. I was so tempted to troll the neighbours with it but thought they might not appreciate my morbid sense of humor.. But it's a great box, it's now filled with 200kg of dirt and some vegetables which hopefully will grow and bear fruit (or veg more like) and after harvest time it can serve as a handy place for our friends to curl up in and die of envy brought on by our superior feast of vegetables!


  1. there is nothing better than growing your own veggies! love the box ♥

  2. That's just what I am planning to do these days, planting some little seeds and hoping they grow green and strong (and yummy :D ) !

    1. I totally recommend! Lumber for this 1,5 x 0,5 x 0,3 meter box only cost about 30€. The timber oil was rather pricey though (45€), but covering the wood with 2 layers of timber oil prolongs the mileage of the box by several years and is totally worth it.
