Two sisters and their dream


This is a picture of Corry and me sitting in front of the tv on a Saturday afternoon.
We just came out of the bathtub, fresh and clean, wearing flannel pyjamas made by our mother. I'm the youngest one sitting on the right side.
Two little sisters...so sweet! There was a time we didn't do many things together because of the age difference of four years. That doesn't seem much but when you're a child it is! Since we past that period ages ago we get along just great. The two of us have pretty much the same interests and hobbies. We both like to keep ourselves creative busy by making things. And we both like to shop and go thrifting.
For some time now we have a dream, opening our own store where we can sell self made goodies and our great thrifting finds. But with a busy life and both our jobs it probably will be a dream forever!
But a little shop on the internet...that must be manageable! So we decided to give it a try.

And after spending a free Sunday afternoon behind the computer we are proud to announce that our little shop is open!

Hoi Heleen, welgefeliciteerd met jullie winkeltje! Er zit een leuke geschiedenis achter. Ik heb wel een probleempje: als ik op de banner klik, kom ik terecht bij Yahoo waar ik eerst een account moet aanmaken. Klopt dat? Moet ik zelf FlickR hebben om jullie site te bekijken? Groetjes, Marjolijn
