This weekend I'm off to London with my son Minne. My last visit was in April 2014.
There will always be something new to discover and that's the joy that is London, one trip is never enough!

Another stage for our favorite houseplants!
Besides the homemade scrapwood plant stand, we bought an old table, with cut-out hearts.
Tomorrow I'm going to repaint this vintage beauty, because the brown is a little brown.
On stage: chamaerops humilis. Once winter is over, we will drag the small palm outside, because this plant can not cope with the harsch winter temperatures.

A visit to Amsterdam, mostly includes a bit of vintage treasure hunting at Neef Louis for industrial objects and Van Dijk & Ko for mainly hungarian furniture and wannahaves.
Both warehouses are packed with great stuff.
At Van Dijk & Ko we found a great plant stand, which needs a coat of paint. We wanted to take one of the industrial weighing scales, but don't have space enough on the kitchen counter.
We enjoyed a moment of spring sunshine on the bench at restaurant Waargenoegen, which unfortunately was not o p e n but n o p e.
