color coordinated

harlequin pillow iffr filmfestival 2022

I crocheted a new harlequin pillow cover for our bamboo daybed and matched the colors to the (homemade) cushions, that I made from a Berber blanket some years ago. Look here.

One of my best-loved crochet projects, this harlequin pillow. You can download the pattern in my ETSY SHOP.

Furthermore, the IFFR film festival started today and I sponsored the (online) festival by ordering a poster and beanie.

mimosa all over the place

Yellow puffs of fluff brighten up the house.

One bunch of mimosa divided over several vases, ergo mimosa all over the place.

mix don't match

mix don't match mix don't match mix don't match

Day & night.

The new pendant light on the ceiling is an alluring wedding anniversary gift from Henk.
Made of terracotta, raffia and fringe, an unusual combination, which fits very well in our mix-don't-match bedroom style.
The light effect on the ceiling is surprising and phenomenal, it adds so much atmosphere.

Our bedroom has such a good vibe, day and night, it feels like a cheerful, comfortable and spacious hotel room.

Rotterdam - Saturday 15th of January - 10715 steps

Weekend!
We visited the Noordermarkt in Rotterdam Noord.
Made a citywalk.
The first day the shops opened up again after the lockdown, we only visited Kookpunt and bought a new cookbook, Comida Mexicana by Rosa Cienfuegos.
Thereafter we had a coffee to go at Hopper.
And found a lot of inspiration by walking through the streets of Rotterdam Noord.

Sunday 9th of January 2022

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary yesterday!

This year in our hometown with a delightful sleepover at Villa Augustus.
Room with a view and roomservice made our stay a super nice alternative to the more exclusive trip we had in mind for our anniversary.

We had brunch at home and after check-in in the blue room at Villa Augustus, made a city walk in our hometown in the afternoon.

And this morning Pippa & Liam dropped by to join us for breakfast as a surprise.

Celebrate love and enjoy the special moments in life!
