If you're familiar with my blog, you may know I have a thing for doors. Back in september I visited Den Bosch with my mom. On our walk across town, we spotted some pretty ones, that I thought deserve a post of their own. Making this post, makes me think I really should get into blogging again, because it brings me lots of joy, and I like re-reading old ones and seeing what I've been up to. Like a sort of online journal. I've made this resolution before, but this time I may succeed in doing so. How are you, how's life in your corner of the world? What have you been up to?

Ray LaMontagne - Part two - in my own way
Leo Stannard - Please don't
P!nk - Stay with me
James Blake - Waves know shores
Michael Kiwanuka - Cold little heart
The last one is the opening theme for Big Little Lies. After making a reservation for this series' DVD box at our local library, i finally gotten my hands on it last saturday. I've bingewatched it last week, and loved everything about it. The leading ladies were perfectly cast (why isn't Reese Witherspoon getting any older, what's her secret?), it's something different from any other show that's on right now. I don't do any review posts, but this is definitely a show I can recommend. Have you watched the show? Any music you've digging right now? Love to hear from you!

A couple of weeks ago mum and me went to Den Bosch, there is another post about this city, which you can find here. This time we visited the Stedelijk museum and the Noord Brabants museum.
One of the temporary exhibitions was about the eighties. On display was the dress worn by our former Queen Beatrix when she was crowned in 1980. I am digging the Queen Beatrix wallpaper adorning the walls!
Happy as a bird with a French fry when I spotted some vintage cars
The other exhibition showed work from Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota. This installation was made from about 2,000 balls of wool, held together by approximately 10,000 staples. If you're interested, and would like to know more, you may want to check out this short video.

Some pretty doors were spotted along the way too, but I'll show those in a separate post. I think they deserve a post of their own :-) Have you visited any museums lately?

June is already a week old, but I wanted to share some pictures of things I liked in may.
Walking to a friday dinner
Having pancakes for dinner at my favourite pancake-place. I love that one of the walls is covered with old baking tins.
Enjoying a sunday stroll
Even though summer has yet to begin, we already went Christmas shopping for items for our brick and mortar store

Since Etsy hasn't brought Treasuries back (yet)(but with the new CEO I am hoping they will be bringing the 'old' Etsy back), I am sharing some of my favourite finds here today. I am especially smitten with that dream of a mirror! Just to be clear, this post is just for fun, it's not in any way sponsored by Etsy, or the featured sellers.

On april 27th we celebrate King's Day in the Netherlands. It's a national holiday, where we celebrate King Willem-Alexander's birthday. Traditionally the festivities involve music, flea markets, red-white-and-blue flags adorn houses and we eat orange coloured 'tompoucen', typically Dutch pastry that's pink coloured normally, and it's impossible to eat them in a chic way! The King himself celebrates by visiting a different city each year.
Me and my mum fled the country and hustle and bustle of the city. We wanted to visit Museum Kurhaus in Kleve for quite some time and we thought it might be a perfect day to do some art-watching. Kleve is just across the border in Germany, and only half an hour away by car. Does it sound familiar? Whenever you are on a holiday, you do all sorts of stuff and visit special places, but the things that are closer to home go onto the one-day-I'll-do-that-list? And my apologies for the picture heavy-ness of this post!
The museum is housed in a former spa, isn't it gorgeous?
We had a lunch break, with waffles, warm cherries and cream, big Yum!
I love that there's a printing press in the background of this photo!
After visiting the museum, we had a stroll through the park.
The museum is definitely something I would recommend. There something for everyone, photography, paintings, sculptures, textiles. I really liked the variety. Also, if you like architecture, the building by itself is worth the visit. More info on the museum can be found on their website (only in German and Dutch).
A little blast from the past, more Kings Day posts over here, here, and here

As you may know, I have a shop on Etsy, and for a while now, I wasn't happy with the photos that accompanied my listings, so I gave my Etsy shop a little make over. I think the new photos make the items look more appealing, and make them stand out more in the crowd when they pop up in search results. To celebrate the new look of the shop, I am offering a 10% discount until the end of the month on all items by using code APRIL10.
Besides giving the items that were already in the shop a little make over, some brand new products were added too. Last friday the mailman dropped of a box full of black baby rompers and black and dark grey baby t-shirts for printing. I love that I am able now to order not just white and pastel colours for the little ones. Can't wait to start designing and printing them! In case you would like to order something with your own quote or design, don't hestitate to drop me a line.
