The one with awesome Etsy finds








Seriously, how awesome is that Freddy doll? Ever since I spotted this guy, I can't seem to be getting bicycle race out of my head. Have you spotted (or maybe even treated yourself to) some online goodies?

The one with the Big Draw

The Big Draw is a festival that originated in England. It's an annual event, that takes place in october. If you're interested, more info can be found over here. For the first time, my hometown Nijmegen hosted a Big Draw last week. The festival will also take place in Australia and the United States. I can highly recommend you to go and see the works of art, if you have the opportunity to go. I had fun walking around town and discovering all of these creations. Beware, this post is picture heavy!

 


This window is one of the windows of my friend Eefje's shop 'atelier Luna'. I really, really like the design of the drawing that was painted on her window.  






You might have spotted these bunnies before on this blog, there were actually some of them on the blog last friday. Discovering new ones always bring a smile to my face. The second picture is a bunny on one of the windows of the department store opposite of my home. The bunny is about to stuff its face with a 'rookworst', a treat this department store is famous for. 




Not only professional artist were part of the big draw, everybody was invited to join in on the fun. Kids hung drawings in trees with colourful ribbons, and a street had a very, very long piece of paper in it, with crayons and pencils to create piece of art. 

 


Once about every two weeks I treat myself to French fries, and my go to address had this guy made of fries rowing a Venetian gondola on its window. If you ever get a chance to visit Nijmegen, and want a tasty snack. This place has the best fries in town, and if you feel very hungry, order some mozzarella sticks as well!



Details on some of the shop windows. Up until today I've never heard of a diddley bow, but I've learned it's a single stringed instrument, moslty used in blues music. 



Some random shots




 





Lots of animals, how about that owl?

 

 



 
Not quite sure if these were part of the big draw, but I think they are awesome, and they fit this post perfectly.

The one with the things I liked this week (83)


Snatching up this vintage Cinderella card at the thriftshop (for 5 cents)

My initials on a shop window

Having a latte this afternoon, in the pitcher is the actual coffee, so you can decide 
for yourself how strong your hot beverage is

 Joining a cooking club. My favorite course was the dessert. Served with coconut icecream, we got pineapple baked in butter and honey, filled with cinnamon and rosemary.

More doors

 Treating myself to fresh flowers, tomorrow I'll try to squeeze in a new 
DIY project, involving vases.

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend, see you next week!

The one with a walk in (and to) the park

Just some random pictures taken on a sunday walk. In between rainshowers there was a little bit of sun, so I took the opportunity to spend a bit of time outside and walk through the park. The fish mosaic is part of an artsy looking bench.

The one where we went cuckoo!

Last sunday we visited the autumn fair in Utrecht to get some fresh items to sell in our brick and mortar shop. The original plan was to walk around a bit at the fair, visit a museum afterwards and maybe do a bit of shopping. None of plans two and three. All day was needed at the fair, to be able to see everything we wanted to see. We got so many cards, gorgeous wrapping paper, notebooks, and other paper goodies, that I am afraid I don't know where to leave everything once it arrives! One might say we went a bit cuckoo... Oh, and these clocks were also available.
