Last minute advent activity calendar
November 30, 2014
Tomorrow is the start of advent -- only 25 days to go 'til Christmas! We do have an advent tradition in our family -- my mum always had an advent wreath on the table with 4 candles in a circle, and one candle was lit on every Sunday in the weeks leading up to Christmas, and ...

Advent Calendars. Time to start planning!
October 17, 2014
December is still six weeks away, and I'm refusing to start thinking about Christmas just yet (I saw the Christmas decorations up on Oxford street earlier this week and it didn't seem possible! Can it really be that time of year already?!). But... I do love Advent calendars -- it's one of my favourite Christmas traditions. ...

The Little Square Gallery -- sweet snapshots in a cool frame
October 7, 2014
I'm not very organised when it comes to using my digital photos -- I just take a photo, post it to Instagram, and then it disappears in a virtual cloud somewhere. Actually, it wasn't very different back when I took analog photos -- instead of a virtual cloud, photos would disappear in a dusty box, waiting to be organised ...

An easy way to transform a room
August 12, 2014
We're back from France, and we found our house renovation next door in full swing. Once again, I'm thinking of tiles patterns, paint colours, concrete floors and curtains. I even wake up in the middle of the night, trying to solve the most unimportant little design questions imaginable. Crazy! (And annoying!) One of the things that came to mind in my nightly ...

Home & Kids (and a house renovation!)
July 4, 2014
When we moved to Amsterdam 6 years ago, we thought we would leave after a few years, so we never ended up buying a place for ourselves. We found a nice little house for rent, in a nice little neighbourhood, with a nice little backyard which is connected to other nice little backyards by way of a ...

Perludi furniture: a cot, junior bed & ottoman (all in one)
June 17, 2014
We were given a hand-me-down cot from friends when our first baby was born and it's the cot we still use for Marlow. I think it must be at least 15 years old now, and it's one of those cots that is ONLY a cot, and nothing else.  If I were to buy a cot ...

June 13, 2014
Jim Flora  (1914-1998) was a mid-century artist known for his album covers and some fabulous children's books (The Day the Cow Sneezed, for example), and his illustrations are truly wonderful.

Upside down plants!
May 19, 2014
Plants in your interior must be back in fashion! I see them everywhere (we've been pinning plants on our Pinterest board too if you're interested). I'm really enjoying the greens that I've been collecting in our home -- it just makes things look so nice and 'fresh'. One of the new additions I got for ...

Beautifully designed Little Quote Jars, by Make History!
May 12, 2014
Ava will be four in less than two weeks! I can't believe my baby girl is getting so big so fast... She went through a huge growth spurt the last half year, both physically and intellectually, and she's rapidly developing into a little school girl. Sweet! I love having conversations with her. She's talking so ...

Spring is here! Say it with pillows.
March 21, 2014
Because yesterday was the (official) first day of spring, I finally finished a little project I have been working on... Pillows! I used mixed techniques to put words on them -- embroidery, appliqué, and painting with textile paint. I especially enjoyed the embroidery work -- it's been a long time since I did embroidery, and ...

Spring is around the corner! And very literally so -- my neighbours pruned their trees last week and I brought some of the branches in. And look! The forsythia, cherry blossom and magnolia are so pretty. (And Ava also pruned the neighbours' flowers, oops!) xxx Esther

As we walked around visiting stands at Playtime, we kept hearing over and over 'have you seen the cowboys and indians?'. At first be brushed it off, but by the time the fourth person asked us, we started to become intrigued. What cowboys and indians?!! And then we stumbled into the Bang Bang Kid stand. ...
