If you are at the market, come and say HI.
Always nice to meet some of my readers.

Pebble and Dash

This is Pebble and Dash, a wonderful small shop in Herne Bay. Full of beautifully handcrafted goodies.
Definitely on my list of favorite shops. Sarah the owner is really lovely. I treated myself to the Yellow Margate cushion  (see second photo).
enjoy your week,
PS: who is watching The Great British Bake Off ?


After unpacking my suitcase and doing all my washing I will tell you about our trip to the UK. The last week of our holidays just started and we trying to hold on to the summer like crazy. It will be hard to go back to daily life.
see you,
PS: anybody seen Blue Jasmine  yet? I really like the last movies from Woody Allen so I'm looking forward to rushing to the cinema.

showUP Amsterdam Autumn & Winter

Just in time back from our trip to the UK to visit showUP in Amsterdam. I really enjoyed it last time but this time it was even better. This year Marimekko had a nice stand showing their new colelction of Oiva dishware.

Enjoy the photos and try to visit next time.

see you,

On my wishing list for the long winter time the XL-angel from Jurianne Matter in cool vintage colors. Also really liked the white paper decorating. They will be great to have in the winter time.

Lövebacken from Ikea

We saw Lövebacken at Ikea in Germany. A cute three-legged leaf shaped side table.

It is a relaunch of the side table named Lövet that came out in 1956. It will be our new telephone table (that sounds a bit posh, lol).

enjoy the summer feeling
