The first thing i did before we moved into our house was paint everything white. White makes me happy. Liters of paint from Flexa milk white ( it's the perfect white) were bought at the local paintstore.The face of the owner lit up everytime i entered the store! In the picture is the book of Jane Cumberbatch about Pure Style which inspired me, because although i like to experiment with colours once in a while, i always return to white.

When we bought our house everybody thought we were crazy ( my mum almost cried). Our wooden house was built in 1760 and in desperate need of restoration. But my husband and i were wearing our pink glasses when we first saw it and fell in love instantly. After 5 years of hard work it's almost finished thanks to him. That's why ilovemyhusband (among other things)....

As a rule i don't diet, however looking in the three way mirror in the fittingroom at H&M ( don't you hate them) gave me the feeling that loosing a few pounds here and there would not harm me. So when i found this book on Amazon uk of Gino d'Acampo from the BBC 's "ready, steady, cook" i decided to order it. So now i have it, and i like to read in it, and it's got great recipes, and you'll probably lose weight (as long as you stick to the portion size, which i never do) so i really should give it a try. Or i could decide to never go into an H&M fittingroom again and order everything on line.....

Two days ago I started with this felt number project which I found in a magazine (101 ideeen.). Pieces of fabric are all over the house now and in the mean time my daughter Jil made a horse and some felt hearts out of the leftover material, aren't they cute?. I still have 14 numbers to go and of course I'm already pretty fed up with the handstitching...

Since I have been drinking a lot of cappuccino's in Italy ( does this sound snobby?) I am very picky about my coffee. Everything should be right, coffee, temperature and frothing of the milk and of course what kind of coffeecup. This one is close to perfection!

Want to tell you about my dog named Harry. He died last year. He came after being retired as a guidedog for a disabled woman. He had been working for 9 years of his life. Always being "a good boy". The ultimate buddist. When he came living with us we tried to make him behave like a dog again ( he did not bark), and for almost 5 years he was my best friend.I miss him.

I used to read a lot in the book of Jane Austen, "Pride and Prejudice" with the famous mr. Darcy. Day dream about a romantic adventure like that. So my heart made a jump when I saw this item, you can buy it on internet. Rings made with the actual paper from a Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" book.

Bought this book for my eleven year old daughter. Its cover is fantastic, don't you think.
Its a pretty akward story about a girl who is already dead ( she suffocated in a wine gum), but it's funny at the same time. At least I smile everytime I see the cover.

Years ago I read this, "ask for a slap in the face"! When creating or doing things you tend to ask people what they think about it. Most of the times they will say it's okay because they do not want to hurt your feelings. Next time instead of asking what was good, ask them what's wrong. Give them a chance to be truthful in their criticism. It might hurt but in the long run it's better then the usual pat on the back.(Paul Arden).
In good days I can do it, in my vulnerable days I appreciate the pat on the back!
Feel free to comment!

I think Valentine's day is pretty tacky and in Holland we do not really celebrate Valentine's day apart from cheap shops having a lot of red hearts on just about every item they sell. However if roses don't work anymore do try this at home!

Decided to start blogging today . Will be blogging about my daily life and all exciting things ( or boring) happening to me. Sharing things I like and don't like. Please excuse me for all future mistakes I might make. This is my logo from a small company I started, ok it's just a logo not a real company yet, but you have to start somewhere.......?
