First of all, Happy New year! I am enjoying some days off of work, and will be getting back to normal life tomorrow. Normally I don't really do New Years resolutions, but I am contemplating making a list this year. Instead of resolutions, I'd rather like to see them as plans. Resolutions do have a bit of a negative feel, I think. One thing I plan on doing, is giving a bit more love to the blog than I did last year. Together with that, I intend on catching up more on my favourite blogs. They teach me things, and show me lots of lovely places I will most probably not get to travel to in real life.
My last post was two weeks ago, and I've gathered quite an amount of photos of things I liked. Do you have any special plans / resolutions, or things you are looking forward to?
Seeing these happy guys
Getting dinner for Christmas eve at my Grandmum
Brunch on Christmas day with friends, there were all sorts of yummy cheeses (again) homemade soup, and cinnamon buns.
Treating myself to some magazines
Pops of colour at mondays' market
This charming place
Where we (me, mum, and friend S.) enjoyed a high tea
Taking a different route to the supermarket, rewarded me with this lovely couple
Wouldn't it be fun to have decorations all year round, not just in december?
Traditionally, we eat 'oliebollen' in the Netherlands on New Years eve. Basically they are fried dough balls. You can also get them with apple, and with raisins (which are my faves). They are served with a lot of powdered sugar.
Last sunday I travelled to Amsterdam with my mom. Almost two weeks ago
we (me, mum and aunt M.) worked nearly non-stop to get two boxes full
of printed tote bags, baby onesies, notebooks, and postcards ready in
time for the pop-up store DaWanda opened this weekend.
Sorry for the amount of pictures in this post. I guess this most be some sort of proud momma thing :-) I loved seeing 'my' things in a real brick and mortar shop (other than my own), everything looked really cool, and I got much inspiration on how I can display some of the items in my own shop!
Love the oxblood bag and print
On sunday,Bobiniwas making personalized rings and cuffs at the shop.
The shop is located in Amsterdam, Gerard Doustraat 76. More info can be found on DaWanda's Facebookpage. Many other charming shops are close by. A pair of Chucks I haven't spotted anywhere else yet (striped, bit of a tweed-look and shiny black toes) wanted to go home with me. And who am I to say no to a pair of awesome shoes? I'm afraid I am developing a bit of a sneaker addiction.....
