The Hema has
some cozy blankets for sale this week.
They are already sold out online

 the smaller  Hema shops.
The orange color will go well with our living room
and keep us warm through the winter.

my Amsterdam

 Love the new look of the kids department from

  Sla, cool restaurant for all the lovers of green & healty food

Yoghurt Barn... I'm a big fan of a healty breakfast

Finally we got a Hay Store... yeah!

Amsterdam is buzzing with energy at the moment. So many new shops and restaurants opening in town. Guess I can spend all week walking around with my camera and take photos.

There is a new trend in Amsterdam having an in store coffee bar. Which is cool but sometimes it is just too much and it's not easy to pick where to drink coffee now (poor me).

Definitely a good time to visit Amsterdam!

see you,

PS : Love the new black look from Jurianne Matter

art...his or hers

We love art!
Mister Kay loves his vintage Gypsy prints like J.H. Lynch. He just managed to find this one yesterday. Lucky me they are not easy to find anymore, lol.
And I like modern screen prints from young artist mainly from the UK. My latest print is from Chris Lambert which I got a couple of  weeks ago at Franks. Just need to paint the frame white.
So what are you... vintage or modern?

Off to spend my day in the garden, there is so  much do. Also I got some flower bulbs yesterday.

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend.

Made by Dede

Most of my girlfriends have lots of handbags but I only got a couple of very nice vintage collector items. I would never leave my home without a bag. On my wishing list is a backpack for my Gym.

When I met Ade Noviany last week I totally fallen for her bags. They are just perfect, beautiful and big. Guess I better start saving.

Tell which one of Ade bags would you pick??

PS: we love Mina's music.

sweet tooth

Last month I went back to have a look again at Janet Maxwell's wonderful seaside garden. Such an amazing and calm place. I started to give my garden a seaside look but I think it will take me years.
