We're gonna dream in full color and sleep like in a 5-star hotel in our brand new Suite 702 bedding.
The name SUITE702 is a nod to the famous Bed-In by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. In 1969, during their honeymoon, they spent a whole week in bed, in Suite 702 of the Hilton Hotel in Amsterdam South. John and Yoko's Bed-In was all about World Peace. In this hectic world of always on, just like John Lenon and Yoko Ono, we should log out more often.
Let's stay in bed for a whole week!

Our tiny tree ✨
This time we decorated the tree with Christmas hares of Anthropologie that we have collected over the years 🐰
The seven hares below you've have seen before and this Christmas season we have expanded our collection with new metropolitan hares from New York, London and Paris.
These hares will always remain a tradition I suspect and reappear every December.

Rotterdam - Sunday 11th of December
Waluw XL vintage market, a carefully curated market for lovers of vintage & fashion.
We went out early for the best treasure hunting and found a white space age stool, a yellow giraffe Ikea design bedside lamp by Monica Mulder and a stack of cognac colored plates from the 70's.
And i discovered an original crochet woodwoolstool cover, so apparently also vintage nowadays...

The trend for autumn/winter are oversized waistcoats.
First I made a sand colored waistcoat for Pippa, the second one in dusty pink for myself and this week I knitted another one with tweedyarn.
I love this knitting project and naturally also the waistcoat itself. The striking shoulder detail is my favorite part!
The woolen waistcoat is a super stylish item for this season. You can simply mix it with anything.
Do you absolutely need this oversized waistcoat in your wardrobe?!
You can order the pattern directly from me by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for orders within the Netherlands. Or you can download the knitting pattern in my ETSY SHOP.
The pattern is available in English & Dutch version, with easy to follow description and many photos. And I made a pattern update for the tweed yarn information.
