Some of my friends in the UK have home sale parties but here in the Netherlands it is not very common. It was nice to visit Femke from Femkeido in her home today where she organised a home sale party. I tell you her home is so beautiful and now I really want wallpaper in my living room.
see you,
PS: also I finally had a change to meet
