I spend an hour at the dentist this morning and believe me that was no fun! One of my back tooth partly broke of just before I left on vacation. The denstist had to remove the old filling and restore the whole tooth. Afterwards I spoke like I was drunk. He was ready at lunchtime but I couldn't eat for 2 hours. And if that wasn't bad enough I bit my lip because I couldn't feel it and my family made fun of the way I was talking :(
Ahhh well.... my grandma used to say "wie mooi wil zijn moet pijn lijden" wich means as much as who wants to be pretty has to suffer.

Anyway, during lunch (while my family was eating except me) the postman came and brought a nice surprise. I got a wonderful "Thank you" package from Prima for being their guest designer in july. I didn't even know I was going to get something untill I had this e-mail from Sharon Laakkonen when I got home from vacation asking for my adress. Such gorgeous goodies, I just love them and they certainly made me smile, even tho my mouth wasn't really co-operating :)



I finished another vacation LO, a simple one as I don't want to spent to much time on my vacation album. It's about Lucca, a beautiful old Italian village in Tuscany. Lucca is everything you expect from an Italian village. The little streets with the yellow houses, the fancy shopping street Via Fillungo, the old town-wall with the towngates, the shops with homemade ice cream (wich costs alsmost nothing). It's just how we think Italy is. We visited the centre first, did some shopping and sightseeing and took pictures and then we rented bikes and had a ride on the town-wall wich is 30 meters wide and 12 meters high and had a marvelous sight on the town. The town-wall is completly intact and it takes less than an hour to go around. We had a wonderful day there! Much, much more fun than Pisa although the tower is a must see!


When I got home this morning from bringing Marlijn to school I saw that all the spiderwebs in our garden were white because of the dew. They looked beautiful so I took out my camera and made some pictures. This is my favorite:



I almost forgot but here's a little reminder for the july/august challenge wich ends on august 31th. There's a nice RAK to win! Check out the challenge and play along! Click here for more information!

So far I visited half of my bloglines list, gosh you've been so busy blogging while I was away :)
Will take care of the rest this weekend!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

I really love your new LO. My sister has been to Luca this summer too. It looks like an awesome village.
Hope your lip is better after biting it several times (I have the same problem after a visit at the dentist).

Wat vervelend dat je naar de tandarts moest. Ik hoop dat je nu nergens meer last van hebt ( en zeker niet van de grapjes van je familie)
Je LO van Lucca is geweldig. Ik ben daar zelf deze zomer ook geweest. Wat een geweldige stadje. Zo gezellig!!
Liefs, es
