For some, these are just a few candles on a bench in our kitchen.
For me, a feast for the eyes.

Enjoy your weekend!

marrakech daydreamin'

Luckily we've got daydreams...

For today was all about hale and sleet in my hometown Dordrecht.
Browsing through an old Living Magazine from June 2009, I'm looking forward to return to Marrakech within a few months.

throwback tuesday

minne & me 1993

My son Minne, the eldest, was born on Tuesday, January 28th in 1992.
He came five weeks early and was a super sweet and tiny baby.
This picture of us was taken in the summer of 1993 in Cuba. Wow, time flies...
Nowadays Minne works as a journalist for a newspaper.

Today we celebrate his 23th birthday!

Is a trip to Marrakech on your bucket list?

But you rather not travel alone? This is your chance!
With a group of super nice participants from all over Europe, you will have the time of your life! We have place for only one participant in April.
During the Cool Crochet workshop, you stay in riad Chambres d'Amis in the middle of the Medina in Marrakech.
You will discover the colorful city in a very special and adventurous way.
We will bring you to the most wonderful places and yes, we will crochet 'in between' in the coolest places.
How about a daytrip to the Atlas Mountains?
Furthermore we take you to wool heaven in the Souk (don't forget to save some space in your suitcase, for it's a bargain to bring wool from the Souk)
