Update - Black Cat Boutique and More

I am just a  'new kid on the block' as a matter of speaking...
So I decided that I start to go on with my Black Cat Boutique before
I want to make my own Fairy Cottage... at the moment...
That is a bit too much for me to start with...
I really want to practice my skills a bit more first lol! ;)

But an update on that later...
First I want to celebrate upcomming MayDay (1th of May)
that's the day that I had choose for my give away :)
And a day we celebrate, well my believings might be a bit different than yours...
But that's fine with me :)

In Greece we celebrate May Day tomorrow,
I know that many counties do celebrate this labour day too.
Here in Greece we make a 'wild flower' door crown!
We collect flowers along the road and in the fields
and put them togheter in a  crown wreath...
I never have made one myself, but I want to do that tomorrow
on this special day :)
 I will go and collect some beautiful wild flowers...

In the meanwhile the owners of my house (they arrived yesterday)
made me a very beautiful 'Stefaní' (that is how these crowns are called here)....

Ain't it just  blooming so bright and beautiful? :)
If you are interested, read some more about 

Next that I wanted to share with you...
is that I went to Nafplio yesterday with my mom and some friends of us.
We had such a perfect day!!!! :)
Beautiful weather, great food at the most charming restaurant...
And some great findings for  my collection :)

(You must know that I have two dogs, a gorgeous colli her name is Nina,
and a dangerous Black Pomeranian her name is Bo ;)
Look what I accidently run into....

And... I found this adorable tiny fairy statue!!
She will look great in my new challenge... 
Look what I won at Katie's Claycorner!! ;)


Today we went to Ermioni for a delicious cup of coffee
and after that we went to the beach to relax.



I always have to search for some great beach findings that the
ocean has brought to land lol!
These are my today's beach findings :)


And last but not least... ;)
I have picked up my work at the Shabby Black Cat Boutique again...
It will be a small and shabby shop
were a friendly fairy sells mostley handmade cat gifts 
Well... not just any cat gift...
She has a passion for Black Cats and wants to show that
black cats are sooo sweet... but also mysterious...
So...
all of her handmade crafts happen to have a black cat on it :)

Ehhem... back to reality... lol!
I have finished the floor for the black cat boutique late last night... 
it was so much fun to do this!


That's all folks! ha ha ha

for now....

Hugs Jollie
