Blue Monday

Hi There,

I noticed I'm not very good with vintage clothes. Only very rarely I find a nice piece. But it's easy for me to find a cool vintage accessory, like a bag or a scarf.

What about you guys? Do you wear vintage clothes? Or do you swap clothes with your girl friends?

see you,

PS: Last night I really enjoyed The Musketeers.

crazy collection

Today I saw this interesting collection of vintage planters in town. Not sure what the owner did with them. It looks like he gave them a makeover with false eyelashes...

Weekend - this week I spent lots of time record hunting. There is  a nice record shop called Wax Well. I always find some nice records there. This week I brought home Agnes Obel  and Etta James.

fine weekend,

Amsterdam Light Festival


Last weekend we had a nice trip to the Light Festival. I must say Amsterdam is so pretty with all the light and it makes one very happy to see it.

The Festival is on till the 19th of January. So if you're in town make sure you take a little walk in the night.

see you,

PS: I'm crazy about Pokey La Farge, just love his music... so vintage. Sure my dad would have loved
his look and his music as well.

Love hearing about good charity shop finds. Send me a link or photos.

Leaving you with loving you by Minnie Riperton.

a little bit of shopping


Went to Haarlem yesterday to visit my friend. On the way I did some shopping...

New trainers. Noticed I do about a year with a pair of trainers but then I sport everyday. A greenish blue top whith a touch of glitter... I wanted one of them for a long time. Got this one in Durf.

I just started a new book and also I'm trying to finish my blue scarf. Also on my list a long walk with the family. Hope you got some nice plans.

Enjoy your weekend,

A trip to Delft was on my list for a long time. I really wanted to visit the Femkeido Shop.
