There's certain things that somehow never work for someone like me. For example: I received a nice colorful Engel garland at the Woonbeurs, but when I unwrapped the foil the rope of the garland was already quite messed up, and when I tried to untie the knots it somehow only got much worse. Then as a bonus Rosa wanted to play with it, so within a few minutes the garland was all hopeless knots and mess.
Untying knots always makes me completely nervous, so I quickly gave up on the garland and considered using my scissors to cut off the colorful paper circles that I liked best (they have really lovely prints).
But then my sister Olga came to visit, and since we have two types of people in the family (the very precise ones like my mother and sister, and the ones who get all freaky and nervous from very precise jobs like me), I thought I'd show her the garland as a fun (and in my view impossible) challenge.
It took even my precise sister some time, but she did it!
Those black walls simply beg for a bit of neon...
Yes, even Rosa, who wore neon striped pants, heard the call of the black wall... ;)
