If you are coming to AMSTERDAM this summer and you want to visit some museums , like the Van Gogh or the Rijksmuseum, make sure you buy your ticket before so you don't have to queue . You can get them at the tourist office.

milk bottles

The Unigate Advertising Milk bottles are very collectable. They are from  the 80's. Prices range from 1 to 10 pounds. So if you see them make sure you get them. They are cute deco items.

Have a look at the British Goverment Milk Ad from the 80's.

- I really want a copy of MollyMakes
- Got a copy of the new Kleinformat (the coolest mag for kids & cool mums)
- I love food and I love the Foodie Bugle (online mag)

blue goes grey

blue goes grey... we decided to change the color of our shed, I love the blue but
we wanted a new look we got some grey paint on was not
easy to find the right color grey for our shed and I''m still not sure if we have...

Our weekend was good. We needed an easygoing break from daily life (hahaha),
just being lazy around the house.

Love the work from Kris Trappeniers
