Cranberry Garland -- a simple little Christmas craft and decoration
Growing up, we always made cranberry garlands for our Christmas tree at home, and after posting a photo of my daughter making them last year on Instagram, I was surprised to realise it is not common in Europe! People loved the idea, and kept asking me how to do it, so I thought I would ...

A bowl of warm, homemade soup is a bowl of happiness. It just feels good for the soul to have yummy and healthy soup simmering away. Especially if you are serving it to a family filled with colds or fighting flus! But really, there is never a reason to need soup, just because is reason ...

Ice Skating at The Standard Ice Rink
During the winter months ice skating rinks pop up around New York and they can be a great way to make the best of a season that otherwise doesn't always encourage you to spend a lot of time outside. The most famous rink is easily the one at Rockefeller Center, but I think my favorite ...

Family walks and how to display collected treasures
  What do you normally do with those little treasures that children find on family walks? The inside of many jacket pockets and the back of many drawers are often their final resting place. Such a sad end, considering how much excitement, enthusiasm and pride accompanied their discovery. So instead of losing these beloved little ...

Embrace the season with paper snowflakes!
Christmas is over, the New Year has been rung in -- it is January. It's slowly getting lighter, but it's still freezing cold and we're hoping for snow. Perhaps this is what the first months of the year are all about -- bundling up and going outside to play in the cold, and then retreating ...

Merino wool long johns from Chasing Windmills

We've been making soups, baking cookies, reading books, knitting, and simply enjoying this cosy season while we have it (it's the first time we've experienced autumn in two years, and we're making ...

Le Jardin des Plantes - Paris
Paris can get pretty wet and cold in the winter and sometimes it is nice to be able to seek refuge inside. One of our favourite city adventures in the winter time is a visit to the Jardin des Plantes. It is one of Paris' largest parks (which does not mean a lot ;)) and also ...

Sweet teddybear ear balaclavas from Nilka
I (or really, Sinterklaas) couldn't resist buying this cute cashmere teddybear balaclava from Nilka for Casper at the ShopUp last week, and I'm so happy I did. He looks so adorable in it! I just love balaclavas, they are perfect when it's chilly outside. They cover ears, neck, and chubby cheeks, and are also virtually impossible ...
