Sunday afternoon during the 'autumn storm' we brought a visit to Rotterdam.
At Sissy Boy Homeland we bought some Christmas decorations.
In the shop various white stars flickered on the high ceiling. Very beautiful!
We chose this star to bring home and put it high on the locker cabinet.
There's a light inside for a somewhat early x-mas mood!

the book is always better

Yesterday I got the new book by Dottie Angel and Rachelle Blondel as a present. Thank you! It's beautiful! Each and every page is granny chic and a joy to see and read.
The book is about crafty recipes & inspiration for the handmade home and lovely photography by Catherine Gratwicke.

And remember to take this good advice;
do feel a little crafty at least twice a day

A large knitted sweater with 'net stockings' and sneakers?
It may sound weird, but I think it's a cool outfit.

Today the mailman brought a H & M package.
Tonight after work I found the online purchases and though I had not ordered the garments as one outfit (I never buy complete sets) the unexpected combination seemd really awesome to me when I tried it on accidentally.

I'm wearing:
H&M gift of the week & magic legging by Maison Martin Margiela with black New Balance sneakers

dutch & vintage

Saturday afternoon I went to see Lammie and we had tea.
Obviously I looked around in her pleasant shop, during our tea sip.
In a corner I found two iron plant holders.
I saw them hanging at our front door during the Christmas season, with red berries plants or candles in glass jars.
Once at home I noticed the amaryllis bulb lying on a plate and figured it would be nice to put it in my new pot holder.

Amaryllis bulbs have a high [Tulips from Holland] content.
I never really know whether I like them or not. As sprouting bulb I like them best, though with the cultivated flower it's not my cup of tea.

Some weeks ago Inck send me a traditional Dutch tile from Oh Marie (The Fellowship of the Travelling Vintage Items) and I think this vintage tile matches very well with the bulb and pot holders.

Who wants to be the next member of the Fellowship and welcome the waving girl with tulips?

autumn atmosphere

There's a yellow tapestry in our front yard.

From the bay window roof (where I had climbed to capture this beauty) the garden looks like a mini park.

The heart-shaped leaves of the Ginkgo Biloba tree are little pieces of art.

high heel mural by pippa

Pippa pimped/pumped her bedroom with a mural today.
First she outlined the high heel with masking tape, after that with a chalk marker.

At Anthropologie I've been sitting on my favorite Ercol half blue love seat for a while and we've found an utterly cute Christmas bunnie family for our tree.

Two days in London is quite short,
but we've seen a lot though.
We visited Tate Modern,
enjoyed a truly amazing view from Primrose Hill (blue skies!)
We dined at Moro with family and obviously went to both Anthropologie stores.
We've got the London Look!

The new wood & wool x-mas trees are named after Swedish cities.

I love the Scandinavian Christmas atmosphere.

The svenska trees are for sale in my Etsy shop.
(Halmstad & Ludvika are already sold)

It may not seem so, but I am busy.

After packing some x-mas trees and bringing them to the post office by bike (the sun in shining after all), now I proceed to the seated work (feet up).

good morning!
