Wednesday, 1st of August.
We celebrated my birthday in Haarlem and on the Parnassia beach of Bloemendaal.
Unlike previous years, we do not always celebrate my birthday abroad, but hey in the summer of 2018, it feels like a holiday birthday, like the ones in Cadiz, Madrid, Pamplona, Berlin, Antwerp...
And the visit to the graceful Ottomania shop, added an extra foreign touch! The Ottomania shop has a refined collection, all products with the simplicity of Ottoman design and lifestyle. Perfect place to choose a very special birthday present. The first time we visited Ottomania was in December 2005, we bought some embroidered pillowcases and a handmade carrying tray with handle of tinned copper, that we still use every day. I love those timeless handmade products, they always remain beautiful.
