My Girl (II)

Although I would like my kids to be surrounded by a little bit more green on a daily basis than they are now, I like it how easily the street becomes a playground with endless possibilities. Kids are so flexible and creative. Concrete, grey, metal, as long as there is room for running, there is fun. And as long Read more…

Maria (II)

Last time I saw Maria, in October 2014, she was still working underground. Literally, since her workshop was then in a basement (a cosy one, nothing but good things about the basement). Meanwhile things have changed. You could say that two babies have been born: one is mine (Oscar), the other Maria’s new, overground workshop which Read more…

My girl

Rosa, 3 years old (3,5 she says ;)) and I’m so proud. Her she is, collecting stones (one of her favorite activities in the whole world) and all I want is hug hug hug. ♥

Serious business

Ha! Meet my new business card. Not that there is any business, nor a plan what to do with the crazy amount of cards that is now lying around in my house (in plants), but hey, I’m having fun with them and that’s important, so the rest doesn’t really matter. Of course, if you want you can have one Read more…

Stripes, monsters, mice – it’s just a selection [read: my last week’s purchase] of the crazy cool things they sell at An Apple A Day, the kids concept store in Utrecht that is close to becoming my one-stop address for a special children’s gift or piece of clothing for my little ones. Go visit. Do. [And note Read more…

Letters to Shino

Last week I received another package from my friend Shino from Tokyo. I love it when I receive a card or letter by mail, especially when it’s from Shino, since everything from her is a joy for the eye + heart. I wanted to write her back and instead of sending her the usual series of Read more…
