Pretty things

Last Sunday I visited the shop of Taska together with my girls. Such a beautiful shop I posted about it before. Sunday they had a special kids day with lovely clothes from Boemerang, lamps from Snowpuppe and Saar manch was there to take polaroids of kids with a painting by her as a background. I bought some pretty things for myself, some postcards of Saar Manche , a science bottle vase and my favourite taska fabric. The lamps are by Snowpuppe, I love the blue and white one.

Paris Fabrics are here....

I'm so happy and excited to let you know that my Souvenirs de Paris fabrics are here. I have wanted to make fabric by the metre for so long and finally I have done it. Of course my first fabric had to be inspired by my favourite city Paris, I cannot wait to sew all kind of project with these fabrics. 
The fabric comes in two colours, blue and aqua and in two different weights, a soft cotton ( 120 gr) perfect  to make clothes, bedding etc and a heavy weight cotton (210gr) great for making cushion covers, bags, pencils purses.
You can find the fabrics in my Etsy shop.

Roman Holiday

Oh yeah the summer holiday is almost here and I'm really looking forward to it especially because we are going to Rome. I cannot wait to be there eat delicious food, shop at the markets and visit all the historic sichts.
 But I also love to see more of Rome, cute shops, fabricmarkets, secondhand stores and more hidden gems we cannot find in the tourist guide.
Do you have any tips for me what to see, do eat, visit or buy while we are in Rome or fun places to go with kids ( teenagers)?
I look forward to hear from you!

A bear for breakfast

My way to start the weekend is to make a creative breakfast for the girls on saturday morning, I like coming up with a new theme and try to incorparate that into a jummie and healthy ( well mostly) breakfast for the girls. 
Here is the breakfast I made for them last weekend, a big bear made of a giant cracker I bought at the Ikea food store, combined with toast, 'beschuit'  and mango ears. I combined it with a strawberrie/pineapple smoothie, fresh cherries and some biscoti. 
Since I started making these breakfast i'm walking through the supermarket with a whole new perspective,  finding interesting crackers, pretty fruit and other food that I can use for the creative breakfasts!
