My fav restaurant and lunchroom of 2014 is Fleurie in Bloemendaal. I feel so at home there and the food is amazing, I never know what to pick. We had lunch and dinner in so many different places in 2014 but Fleurie is my winner.

Wishing you all an sparkling and healthy 2015. May all your dreams come true.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

We started to have a little new tradition... going out for a long December walk.

Tell you it was cold today and the coffee place was on a winter break but still the light was amazing.

Wishing you all a merry little Christmas with your family and friends.

Christmas is back in Amsterdam

I was in town today looking for Christmas gifts for Nila.It was one of those grey and rainy days, we have a lot of them in the moment. But even on rainy days Amsterdam has a lot to offer...

So tell me have you done all your Christmas shopping yet? I send all my snail mail. Just have to write some cards. So there is time to enjoy some Christmas party's.

see you,

PS: Totally love the music from Jaqueline du Pre.

Celinda Designs

Last Friday there was a Mini Market in Elle Aime. I had a chance to meet Celinda Versluis. I always liked her Belle Dames on vintage china... they make wonderful gifts.

It was also the first time that I visited the shop in Rotterdam and I must say I love it. Very much my cup of tea, sure we will visit again soon.

See you soon,

PS: love the work of Floor Rieder

Holiday crafting

We are stilll busy getting the house in to the Christmas spirit and finally started with some holiday crafting. Mister Kay is really good in it.

In the Danish magazine  BoligLiv was a nice idea how to recycle your empty tea lights. Have fun.

See you,

Oh Tannenbaum

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are your branches!
In beauty green will always grow
Through summer sun and winter snow.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are your branches!

We are on the way to search for the perfect Christmas tree.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend,

December... let it snow, let it snow.

Really enjoying the cold December days. My cats are inside a lot and they keep me company.

Busy with getting some of my Christmas parcels ready. I should really bring them to the post office this weekend.

Hope you are all well,
