The daybed is getting more attractive by the day.
Some extra pillows and a cotton throw blanket* from India feel at ease on the sofa.
Our newest green inmate is a gift from Pippa, because it looks like a pineapple on a stalk. It's living in a Moroccan bread basket and is called Eucomis.
Pippa told me it's a garden plant (and it smells), so Eucomis will move to the backyard within a few days.
(* good find Rosa... i love dots!)

I don't allow myself to buy another cookbook for the time being.
As long as there are at least four cookbooks on the cart, from which we have not tried a single recipe yet...
We have so many wonderful cookbooks and yet I do not know what to make for dinner tonight?

Piña colada smoothie. Super easy summer drink.
Ingredients: frozen pineapple chunks and coconut milk.
Mix in a blender until smooth. If you use fresh pineapple instead of frozen, be sure to add some ice to the mixture.
Suddenly the Pina Colada song popped up in my head [If you like piña colada's...]

One pillow, two faces!
I love to make 'fabric' with wool. All colors can be combined! The trick is how to make them work.
This harlequin pillow is now for sale in my Etsy shop ♦ 50% off ♦

In October I'm going to run the second workshop of this year and I'm already looking forward to returning to Marrakech.
At the moment I'm working on a new project for the cool crochet workshop.
I will use the wool I brought back from Marrakech last April. I wanted to make a woven wall hanging with it actually, but now I have a new colorful crochet project in mind...

Our 'new' daybed is the favorite piece of furniture in tha house. A summer afternoon daybed nap is so relaxing.
We found the vintage daybed at Arterior, an interior concept store in Breda and fell instantly in love with this bamboo beauty!
The pineapple pillow* feels completely at ease on the vintage sofa. *you can find the pattern h e r e
I will make another fabric daybed cover to vary the natural linen cover (a tropical leaf fabric or stipes of hand dyed fabric) ... and of course I need to make more daybed pillows...

Our moroccan pink kitchen wall with an almost graphic plant in front.
Eye to eye with the mighty fine combo of #PlantsOnPink. More plants on pink on Instagram @plantsonpink

During the last week, I received many emails of interested blog-followers about our hotel...
Ses Sucreres. The small charming hotel is situated in the old neighbourhood of Ferreries, in the centre of the island Menorca.
[Time ago, the two women of the Ses Sucreres, a small local grocery, used to make candies for the Ferreries children...candies for a all generation who remember our house as "Ca Ses Sucreres"...]
We stayed 7 nights in this hotel and we've enjoyed every moment of our stay.
The owners created a personnel hotel, which doesn't feel like a hotel, exactly how we love it!
We felt at home the moment we stepped inside.
Our week on the beautiful island of Menorca has become an unforgettable trip, certainly also because of this Menorcan Sweetness...

The white summer sofa is for sale.
Last weekend we found a vintage bamboo daybed and we don't have place for another sofa in the livingroom.
So the white sofa has to go, with pain in my heart i've to admit...
It's an Ikea Nikkala sofa (not available anymore) with a natural white cotton sofa cover by Bemz.

Ciutadella in the morning, Macarella in the afternoon.
The long walk in the woods was rewarded with spectacular views and splendid turquoise bay.
