Random photo's from last week, including birthday mail and birthday food. We had Indian food on my b'day, which I love. I like the many choices in vegetarian food and I am a big fan of dishes with cilantro, and the lentil soup the restaurant serves is delicious. This dinner made up for a big part of my birthday blues! Lots of easter goodies were spotted, and chocolate eggs have been eaten this week. The collection of bunnies was found at my favourite flower shop. Other than that, cloudy blue skies and aliens!

After all the birthday festivities (which mostly consisted of eating lots of food), I promised myself to take a big walk on sunday. These are some random photo's of things I spotted that sunny morning. I got all excited when I ran into a 'new' Wally, more Wally's are here and here.
I wasn't the only one taking an early morning walk :-)

Gorgeous Russian stamps.
I didn't really feel like visiting the thriftshop, but on those days I usually find the best treasures. Like yesterday.
My aunt found this box of old carbon paper. I love the design of the packaging.

Today is my birthday. I do like parties and get-togethers with friends. My birthday though, not so much. I guess I feel like I should have accomplished more since the last one. Am I the only one who struggles with the birthday blues? On the other hand, an important part of most birthdays is food. And I happen to like food! A lot. There's birthday cake waiting in the fridge, tonight I'll meet up with friends to have Indian food, and my aunt invited me for dinner tomorrow evening. On sunday I might need to take a very big walk....
I hope you'll have a fabulous weekend!

I could watch Grey's Anatomy and the Vampire Diaries just for the music. These shows always happen to include music I love. Like this version of I wanna dance with somebody

I've been adding some new prints and products to my Society6 shop lately. My favourite is the letterpress print. It might be fun to know that there are a J, W & M sitting together in the second row. Whilst arranging the letters, I thought it might be fun to include the first letters of my grandmother's, mom's and my own first name. Until april 13th, Society6 offers free shipping and a $5.- discount on all orders (accept for framed prints, stretched canvases and throw pillows with insert) through this link. They also added rugs to their collection, I am very curious how they look in person! I think I've never seen a rug printed with a photo.

Last sunday I was craving for a little something to snack on. Preferably not too healthy, and easy to make. Oh, and something that didn't require a trip to the supermarket. As a cheese aficionado, I always have cheese in the fridge. I had some filo dough as well and thought these two might be a match made in heaven.
What you'll need:
- 5 sheets of filo pastry
- 10 chunks of cheese
- 50 grams of butter
- ketchup, or something else for dipping purposes
Preheat your oven to 180°C / 350°F. Cut the dough in half, and melt the butter slowly in a small pan. Remove the pan from the heat and brush the sheet of dough on both sides with the melted butter. Place a big chunk of cheese on top, and wrap it like it's a present.
Place them on a sheet of baking paper, and bake them on the middle shelf of the oven for about 15 minutes, or until they are golden and crispy.
I served them with ketchup, but I can imagine they might taste good with a mixture of crème fraîche, chopped up garlic and fresh chives.
