Flying in the sky

Remember this day?
Well, Mart finally got to take his introductory flying lesson this weekend!
And I was sitting at the back of the tiny Cessna 172, feeling quite sick in the windy weather... :-)
It was great though! So cool to see the area we live in from the sky, and of course, for Mart, so wonderful to finally fly in the sky!

Blueberry pops

I tried making popsicles with blueberry juice this weekend. They weren't amazing to be honest, so we plopped them into our juice-maker (without the wooden sticks of course) and made fluffy orange-blueberry-ginger juice. That was much nicer! :-)

Zucchini blossoms

One one my colleagues brought be beautiful zucchini blossoms from his parents' garden today, and so Mart whisked together a beautiful lemon, ricotta and zucchini blossom rigatoni dinner... it was y - u - m ! We ate on our little terrasse, in the evening light, with a nice glass of white... now that's what I call Summer!

wonderful wallpaper week 39


It finally feels like summer here in the Netherlands. The weather forecast doesn't look like it's going to stay that way for very long, so we're making the very best of it while we can!

And... it's my Daddy's birthday today! Joyeux anniversaire Papa!

The insides of a hill

Today we cycled across the border and visited this fort. It's an impressive place; so very big, quite scary, and full of history.

For sale: set of 3 hand-printed onesies

Hello everyone!

I hope you're all having a lovely Sunday. Here a few rays of sun have appeared after a morning of crazy rain... everything is still really wet but it's good to see some light again!

Today I've decided to try something new; I'm quite curious to see what will come out of it!

From now on, and from time to time, I will offer one-off items for sale on this blog. The idea is to send some of the things I make
off to greener pastures. I love creating stuff but cannot possibly keep them all for myself!

Here's the first item I am putting up for sale. It's actually a set of three. Three adorable hand-printed little onesies which you might remember from this guest post.

Fancy buying them?
Just click on the button below!

It should be summer here in the South of the Netherlands but we've seen so much rain lately that it feels more like fall. It reminds me of last year.
We've had some lovely days though (like when I took this photo a few evenings ago). I hope they come back soon!

This time three years ago...

... we were in California, having a wonderful time driving down Highway 1. I just peaked at our photos again, and found this incredibly lazy looking lad.
He makes me smile.

Quick lunch

I somehow had hopes that these would be amazing... well, silly me got slightly disappointed today.
Never mind; it was a fun nevertheless!
