costa de la luz - spain

For the next few weeks, summer is guaranteed.

We fly to Seville, drive from there to a beautiful 'pueblo blanco' near Cadiz.

The light seems to be beautiful. That explains the name of this piece of Andalusia; Costa de la Luz.

packing suitcases

Most women take far too many clothes when they travel and I'm usually one of them.
My intention for this holiday is to bring less luggage.The 'maybe' pile stays at home.

What I love about the 'handmade' is the ever changing combination of patterns, colors, wood and wool.

You never know exactly how it will be and along the way it always turns into a unique piece.

happy hare, blue buttons & mollie makes

Isabel Lammerts makes Lucky Hares ('gelukshazen') of Chinese newspapers and gives them outfits of recycled colored paper.
She will soon travel the world with her family and remains making 'gelukshazen' during her trip, using local newspapers. You can order the unique handmade hares at her shop 'vergeet-me-niet'.

The blue buttons are from Lammie sells and the cobalt blue color blends beautifully with the new 'beach house' wall.

Mollie makes me proud publishing my work in issue two. Mollie Makes is about Living & Loving handmade and it's a good read and inspiration for all crafty souls.
I'm a fan and will definitely subscribe to the magazine, because it's not for sale in the Netherlands (yet).

Marigold; flowers on the table & petals in the salad.

The Marigold flowers make their name.
They literally bring sunshine into a meal and the taste is surprisingly good.

Last Sunday we visited the annual book fair in Dordrecht, including "Lammie sells" and laughed about the humorous and appropriate window.

Believe it or not,
I've already made the first wood & wool x-mas tree this week.
This 'summer tree' is for 'curly' Deborah.
Issue remains;
Is she far too early or way to late with her order?

pancakes recipe

Inspired by the pesto recipe, I've got a request to make another recipe.
This one is for the kitchen wall of my friend Inge and involves a 'Jip & Janneke' pancakes recipe;

100 gram flour
2½ dl milk
1 egg
30 gram butter
