Btssb Heart Pochette

Oh my god, how could I forget to post about that? o__O
I've told you, that I won Harlyharlekin's giveaway, but I failed to tell you, that my prize already arrived last Thursday!! *O*

The Btssb Heart Pochette is so cute and now claims the title "Smallest bag in my possession" :D
It's really small, there's only space for my mobile phone and some money (without purse), I guess. I hope, I can bring it in a coord soon.

It came in the Baby, the Stars Shine Bright / Alice and the Pirates bag, I'll keep it. The handle has to straighten a bit, so I hung it on my door.

Inside was Harlyharlekin's card, she's so pretty♥ Thanks for the great prize again! ^___^

Floriade 2012 in Venlo *photo-heavy*

Last Saturday my parents, my sister and I visited the Floriade 2012 in Venlo. But only from 5 to 8 o'clock, because the entrance is cheaper after 5 p.m. This way, we only saw not even 1/3 of the area. We already decided, that we have to  go there again, maybe even with a 2-days-ticket and earlier :)

From our decision you may be able to tell, that the Floriade is really worth a visit ^__^  Or, in this case, even more than one...

 The bridge from the cashpoint to the Floriade grounds

There are different districts and so many beautiful flowers, it's amazing *__* We were all very thrilled about it. Of course, I had to adjust my outfit to the location:

My dad couldn't believe, how people stare at you, just because you're wearing a fluffy skirt... people.
There are also gardens and houses of different countries and in some of them, they were really excited about my look xD So, if you're visiting the Floriade in lolita, make sure, you stop at the houses of Spain, Sudan and Sri Lanka :D A woman at the Sudan house asked me, if my dress was for dancing and wanted to touch my poofy skirt, the women at Spain just smiled and talked a lot in Spanish, so I just understood the word 'Harajuku' and a woman from Sri Lanka said, I'd look very beautiful, like a doll ♥
 That made me very happy :)

Now, I better let the photos speak for themselves:

 I want to take a ride with the cable car - but a single ride costs 6€ oO

 Huge stork's nest on the left


 Indonesia - they copied  the traditional houses from the different islands

 A mini version of a famous temple complex

 The Floriade theatre - concerts take place on several days



Another thing well worth seeing was the film shown at the "Earth Walk". It was only 5 minutes long, but it was shown in the floor and it made you feel like you were flying over the landscape in an airship *___* 

Visit the Floriade 2012 in Venlo! I definitely recommend that!

Millingen tea house

Now some catching up with the recent events.
Somehow I have the feeling, that I spent most time of the weekend in the Netherlands xD

On Friday morning, my parents drove with me to Millingen, where a tea house is located, set up in an Asian inspired garden. The "bad" thing was, that you couldn't drive up to it, we had to park at a parking lot and then walk 2 km through the pampas :D It was really warm and there was a lot of beautiful nature around :)
And there were quite a few cowpats, but we didn't see any cows running around ^__^

My mum claimed, that it was more than 2 km to walk, but my dad and I don't believe her :D
The tea house was quite expensive, you had to pay 5 euro for entrance and we paid 27 euros for some buns with cream cheese, cola and a coffee. Yeah, shame on me, I drank cola at a tea house.. v___v  But it was too damn hot! No hot tea for me with these temperatures.

Inside the house
The house lies in a big garden,  with many different corners. There's a terrace with low sofas, little fountains, a big lawn with tables, a small bamboo forest and many flowerbeds. It's really beautiful, but I was also a bit disappointed, because my mother told me before, that it was supposed to be a Japanese tea house and I expected something different. 

You can see a tiny glimpse of my alpine green hair at the back of my head xD

The way back was much worse :D Additional to the heat there were many gadflys now D: 
The flew around us and I still have a sting at the back of my left thigh... they made it through my tights! It's so itchy from time to time... but still it was a nice walk through the nature!
