Happy birthday to my mother :)

This is my mum, with my brother and me, back in the seventies. My mother is a woman with great taste and a perfect eye for beautiful things. Here's a small selection of things i know she loves.

Bedding. Oh my god! You should see her closet, it's full of the most wonderful sheets and bedding.All perfectly ironed. We call her the queen of beds. Stay at her house and your bed is always perfectly soft and colour coordinated.

Barcelona, Spain. Her favorite city. Back in the days she went on a lot of business trips to Barcelona, and enjoyed being there on her own .Happily leaving her family in Holland behind, well done mum! You deserved it!

Magazines, leafing thrue magazines is her favorite passtime ( and mine)

Fashion is another passion of her. My mum built her own fashion labell, from scratch, and was very succesfull.This is an outfit she would love to wear.

And last, but not least. South Africa. A country she loves. Every year she and my father go there for at least 6 weeks.Saying they will miss us, but i'm not quite sure :)) She can go on and on about how she feels at home there and how beautiful it is.Again something you deserve mum, and hope you will enjoy for a lot of years to come.

Happy birthday mum, you are the best! XX
