hi, I'm back from my lazy holiday in the Vosges and still have to get used to my daily routine; tomorrow back to work, sigh
the walled herbal garden on the picture above was not far from where we were staying, so I popped in almost every day; I've seen there many beetles & butterflies I only knew from books ...
felt like a kid in a candy store :^)

I brought home some grasses from my yesterday walk;
the one in the vase is Barren brome;
that in the picture above is Wavy hairgrass.
the fairy-like cocoon below is the egg sac of a spider I will not show here :)
and this one is even better
and this one too
for the enthusiasts : O

I've got some strands of black wool from my mom that she in turn got from one of her crafting friends; my mom said she knew this wool from the old days;
the spinning mill near Brussels was called d'Aoust & frères, but no longer exist, too bad.
such pretty wraps!
brought a bunch of white matthiolas, they smell very sweet and summery,
I can hear the swallows screaming through the open window,
a postcard from a friend...
happy at home :)

I like making foto's just before bedtime, it's kind of my way to close off the day, so I'm happy with a moth on a curtain :^)
like this harlequin.
the subtle yellows and ochres on it's wings inspired me to make this cushion; while I'm not really a lover of the black&yellow combination, I think the colors are beautiful together.
The oak branches with gallnuts was also a nightshot, the shadows of the leaves came from the street lightning and the moon. bliss :)
