Portrait Haarlem


Sometimes you need a place... where you feel like at home, which makes you active and creative.

If they also have good food and make great coffee... then you want to be there everyday and bring all your friends.

see you,

going on a drive

When I was young we often just went for a drive purely for fun. Singing along to the radio.
Earlier today we went for a drive. It's Nila birthday today and her little wish was going for a drive. Its great fun just to get in the car and drive with nowhere in mind.

We have a to-do list for Easter Monday but I guess we will take it easy and do sweet things.

Enjoy life,

This morning my friend Caterina was teaching me how to make Cantucci, that's what they are called in Italy. Guess in the UK we would call them Apricot and almond biscotti with limoncello. Really easy to make and they taste yummy.

It's time to have a little party with my girl friends... so I can make some more.

some copper, brown and a touch of green

Our home is empty and calm in the moment. The rest of my cat family are hanging around the house to keep me company, they can be so sweet.

Mister Kay did some framing for me, that means some more prints can go on the wall (which made me happy).

see you soon,

PS: Stromae new clothing line Mosaert is just amazing.
I think I will order a pair of socks. They are so beautiful.

Fifty our cat of 20 years passed away this morning. She was a big Mister Kay fan and always waited for him to come home.

We will miss you little friend.

see you,
Kay and the rest of the family

Petticoats & Cadillacs

From the Snorrensalon, Meneer Jansen, really lovely guy

The lovely lady from RVC

My fav time of spring is when the Cadillacs and Petticoats come out of the winter storage. Growing up with a rockabilly father I just love the 50s and 60s.

After a flea market in the morning I visited a vintage beauty fair. Most of the visitors made an effort and showed up in the most amazing outfits.

Really looking forward to the Rock 'n Roll D-Day in June here in Amsterdam.

see you,


This last week was a good week. Full of energy and some great meetings. Some wonderful new plans which will keep me busy for some time. Life can be good.

Here is my best vintage find of the week.
A small black vase with a white Bambi.
I don't know much about it but
I think is from a dutch pottery company.
Did you find any nice vintage
in the last couple of weeks??
see you,
PS: also I love my vintage London bag
which I found at the flea market for 20 pence.
