I confess - the printers' tray

I hesitated to show you this because it seems so old fashioned. During the seventies old printers' drawers were used as decoration pieces. I had a replica back then too. Filled with small figurines and other stuff. When my neighbour Claire threw out these drawers I was walking past and decided to adopt them.
I use them to show off my wood block letters, small tin cans, stones and other vintage items. My children love it too! My daughter has a small one of her own.

Zeeuws meisje

This is me, here at Turning pages, on two Twitter accounts, Pinterest and a few other social networks. I made this logo about 10 years ago. When I started blogging and tweeting I dusted off the logo and since then I've been using it as an alter ego. 
The logo is based upon a butter brand called Zeeuws meisje (see below). Zeeuws meisje is synonymous  with: a distinct accent, old fashioned, thrifty and folklore dresses. When I was 18, I left Zeeland to study and people around me started calling me Zeeuws Meisje.

In case you're wondering what I actually look like:

Some say I look like Mona Lisa...
