I belong to a wonderful dutch forum, all the woman there love to decorate their house with beautiful furniture and decorations. We had a forumday last week, it was a lovely day. We have never met each other in real live. We only have talked to each other on the forum. But it was so great to meet everybody.
We all brought someting to eat or drink with us and the first part of the day we talked and talked and talked some more . Then we had lunch and then we had a lovely workshop, painting and decorating a bottle and turned it into an oillamp.
We also made a present and we didn't know for who it was.It just felt like Sinterklaas ( a Dutch holiday ) with all those presents.
I received those wafels you see on this photo. They're not real, but for decoration. Aren't they great!
On this photo you also see one of the oillamps I made.



Here are the presents that I made, 2 lavenderbags.






Here are all the bottles of that day.The other one I made is the thirth on the left.

Your oil-lamp is really charming! And the waffles look delicious. Can't believe they're not real. Lovely lavenderbags, too!

Volgens mij hebben jullie het helemaal geweldig gehad! Volgende keer hoop ik er ook bij te zijn!
Die wafels zijn net echt zeg! En jouw gemaakte kadootjes zijn ook heel schattig.

What a lovely forum to be a part of. I really like the idea of such a decorating forum, and to be able to meet likeminded ladies. And I especially like your lavender bags. They are just so pretty! All the decorated bottles make an impressive picture too. Not to forget the waffles! Never seen anything like it!
