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…

Happy anniversary

This year, Daan & I have been together for 20 years (!), of which 5 years of marriage (yep, it’s serious). We celebrated with a great weekend away with friends (Fleur & Fabian, celebrating their five year anniversary – starting point: our marriage :)). I thought it would be nice to give Daan something special that Read more…

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

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…

Merry Christmas wrapping!

Thanks to An Apple A Day – the kids concept store in Utrecht I should really do a blog post about some time, that was so kind (after continuous begging from my side) to sell me some of their nice decorating stickers – my presents are nicely wrapped again this year. :)

My love affair with Adrian...

Why change a winning team? Yep, when I love something, I go all the way. I like to think of myself as the adventurous type, but unfortunately the opposite is true: I’m the boring type. I wear the same (crazy cool) (at least that’s what I like to think) outfit* over and over again, cook Read more…

Dries van Noten

When in Antwerp, don’t forget to visit the Dries van Noten exhibition ‘Inspiration’ in the MoMu Fashion Museum. It’s the very first time the fashion designer discloses his oeuvre in any exhibition and reveals the singularity of his creative process, illustrated with numerous sources of inspiration. Worth a visit!

2015 – are you ready...

   I am with my new pink (‘skin’) (the grey one is Daan’s) diary by Dutch graphic designer Marjolein Delhaas! I know, pretty old school, but I just can’t get enough of a good paper journal. :)

The White Ones

I did something bad (well, sort of, you know how spending money on pretty things sometimes makes you feel a bit guilty? That kind of bad). You might remember how I bought my pair of Adriana metallic silver sneakers a little while ago. They’re really the best (perfect fit, I could walk on them for Read more…

Croc pile

I’m in love with these little wooden crocodiles, that try to look tough but meanwhile are the cutest little creatures I can think of. They are designed by Karl Zahn for the lovely AREAWARE (you already know I’m a fan of their wooden toys) and can be stapled in a dozen ways (hence their stage name Read more…
