blog swap

just like last year dutch blogger and creative "centipede" Lynda Hovens 
started the fantastic blogswap event among dutch/belgian bloggers 

every participant was linked to another participant and the intention was to make
 or buy a personal gift for someone you don't know at all... 

yesterday I received my lovely presents from Nancy
 from the blog Madame Mikmak
and they inspired me to make a beautiful stilllife
while having some styling- and shootingfun
at the beautiful house of Alet of the  Stoer Metaal shop

thank you so much Lynda and Nancy!
It was fantastic to join in this so nice event and to discover
the other persons blog and instagram account!

there are so much gorgeous details to admire
just love them all

really made me smile today!
