What's In A Name



our Nim

I was curious what the name Nim means. This is what I found...
  A strong minded, golden hearted, one in a million individual.
He doesn't realize the importance and value he has on people
lives especially the ones closest to him. If you are fortunate
to meet a Nim, count your blessings as he is a true treasure.

Besides our Nim is a female, she is golden hearted and a real treasure!
Once my 'sister' told me in Kurdish "Nim Nim" is the beginning of the rain.
When you think you can feel it but you can't see it. That's poetry to me!!!
So I'm imagining a hot summer day, you're wishing for a rain shower and then
suddenly you think you can feel the first tiny raindrops. That's our Nim ★

What's In A Name

our Mats

- Mats is a given name, a Scandinavian form of Matthew
- In Swedish de meaning of the name Mats is : gift from God
- People with this name have a deep inner desire to use their abilities in leadership,
and to have personal independence. They would rather focus on large, important issues,
and delegate the details. People with this name are competent, practical, and often obtain
great power and wealth. They tend to be successful in business and commercial affairs,
and are able to achieve great material dreams. Because they often focus so strongly
on business and achievement, they may neglect their private lives and relationships.

 I recognise: leadership, personal independence, competent, power, focus on achievement.
But he can be adorable.... when he sleeps ;) Nevertheless I think Mats rocks ★

Tiles


I spotted these tiles in our friends renovated toilet years ago.
Let's hope the tiles are still available. A beautiful tile option for our toilet renovation.
Due to a (hopefully solved?) leakage this will take at least a few more months.

In Openhouse magazine the kenderman spotted some porcelain ducks and swallows.
Today we bought these at the brocante market in Tongeren :)
