WOYWW 94 - Springtime !!!

Hallo iedereen en welkom alweer op mijn nieuwste editie van WOYWW. Afgelopen maandag is de lente weer begonnen, maar dat is niet de enige reden dat mijn onderwerp in het teken van de LENTE staat. Afgelopen weekend hebben we hard in de tuin gewerkt. De bomen voor ons huis hadden een laatste snoeibeurt nodig en daarvoor was het nu een mooi moment.

Hello everyone and welcome on to a new episode of WOYWW. Last monday Spring began, but that's not the only reason I have SPRING as a subject this time. Last weekend, the weather was great up here, and we went out for a day of gardening. Our trees, in front of our house, had to be cut back.


Maar toen we, uiteindelijk, bij de laatste boom de top bereikten stond ons een mooie, schattige verassing te wachten. De tortelduiven, die bij ons huis leven, hadden hier hun nest gebouwd, helemaal boven in de kruin, zoals je ziet op de foto. En toen we een goed gingen kijken in het nest lag er één eitje in. Ja, de LENTE is nu echt begonnen.


But when we arrived at the top of one tree we found a big, cute surprise... A bird has built her nest at the highest point as you see in the picture above. And when we took a quick look up there, we saw a single egg lying there. It's SPRINGTIME !!!

Ik ren direct ons huis binnen om de camera te pakken, want zoiets zie je niet iedere dag. Natuurlijk wil ik dit kleine wonder op de foto hebben en zo zag het eruit...


So I ran into the house to grab my camera. I wanted to take a picture of nature's miracle of course. And this is how it looks...


Uiteindelijk hoefde ik ook niet lang na te denken waarvoor ik deze foto zou willen gebruiken. Ik doe nl. mee aan een ATC swap met als onderwerp lente / Pasen. Deze foto is hiervoor een prima achtergrond voor mijn eigen ontwerp. En dit brengt mij, tot slot, bij mijn eigen bureaublad van deze woensdag.


After all that, I didn't have to think for very long about where I wanted to use this picture. I joined an ATC swap with the subject Spring / Easter. So this picture is a pecfect background for my own ATC. And that brings me, inevitably, to my work desk this Wednesday.


Hier zien jullie alle losse onderdelen die ik wil gaan gebruiken op mijn Pasen ATC. Natuurlijk is daar ook plaats voor mijn nieuwe stempel met kleine vogeltjes erop. Tot slot hoop ik dat jullie mijn blog in de gaten gaan houden, zodat jullie binnenkort het eindresultaat kunnen zien.
Goed, dat is het weer voor vandaag. Voor iedereen "a nice WOYWW" en hopelijk tot volgende week.

Here you 'll find alle the small parts I want to use on my Easter ATC. Of course, I also want to use my new stamp with the cute little birds on it. They'll make this nest complete. I hope you'll keep an eye on my blog to see the final results. 
That's it for today. Have a nice WOYWW and hope to see you next week.

Beautiful egg and nest photo, what a wonderful surprise to find it up there, I assume you're going to leave the tree now until the little bird hatches? Great idea for an atc too and love that little birdy stamp.

Ah yes, spring is certainly on it's way. The birds have been pinching the lining of my window box and started fluttering in and out of the eaves of our roof. where they nest.

Sam zei

Well done for getting the picture. Our box has become inhabited again in the last week with Blue Tits. Your stamp would be perfect! Looking forward to seeing your ATC!
