Every year I go to the creative market in a park near me, Utrechtse Fabriek. Every year I go, so I also went today. In the rain. I felt so bad for all those people there selling their goods. 'Cause there's no way they ever could've thought it would be only twelve degrees (yes, twélve degrees!) at the end of May. So: I put on my winter coat and got on my bike.
Een van mijn favoriete kraampjes, elk jaar weer, is die van 'Buiten de lijntjes' met hun vrolijke en gezellige papierwaren. Die theedoeken die je later tot knuffelbeesten kunt naaien, vind ik al jaren heel erg leuk. Maar toch heb ik er nog nooit één gekocht. Misschien dat mijn dier er gewoon nog niet tussen zit.
One of my favorite stalls, every year, is that of 'Buiten de lijntjes' with all the happy and nice looking stationairy. I just adore the tea towels that you can sew into softies after you're done with them. I've never bought one though, I guess I am waiting for the right animal turned into a tea towel.
Despite the rain, I overheard that it was actually quite busy yesterday. That's a good thing. Every year I end up busing something at the market, but today I came home empty handed. Mostly because I had already treated myself to a weekend away. And I already regret it. 'Cause the whole idea of a DIY Doggie kit makes me laugh! I really should have bought one. But yeah, coulda woulda shoulda... and now I forgot the name of the shop that sells them. Grump...
