happy 2011

Today is the last day of 2010 and I am used to the space between 20 and 10 on the clock. The year has flown!

Yesterday Pippa was my personal assistant on the last flowerday of the year. In the morning we went to the flower auction for flowers & bulbs. When we arrived at Villa we first had lunch with Naïma in the marketcafe.

We brought all kind of bulbs for the shop and some cute four leaf clover plants for happiness in the new year!

Wishing everyone a happy 2011!

[keep it simple] christmas

Finally it's 'Christmas' in our home. After making lots of trees for other people and working on the Christmas decorations at Villa Augustus, it's about time!

The 'old tree' is standing outside at the front door and my grandmothers old drying rack as a Christmas tree was not quite a success, so we made a fresh tree for the livingroom.

A couple of tealights and some colored decorations in the tree. Light a simple red candle et voila, ready!

I am so happy with the new vertical bookshelf Sapiens. Yay, space for 2 meters of books!

The pink wood & word sign I made for Nina's sweet newborn daughter Rosa Lieve.

there's a snake in my boot

Sometimes I consider to add a F.A.Q. to my website. Even if it was only to answer all the questions about my boots. Monthly dozens of women (no kidding) ask me where I bought my star boots.
Actually I bought them years ago ('secondfeet' to be exact) and they are made by the Spanish brand Sendra. These star boots probably are no longer in the collection, but I'm sure there must be similar boots.

Big Toy Story fan as I am and having a weakness for Woody, I'm almost crazy enough to have ANDY on my soles.

Aside from the fact that they are super cool, these boots are made for walking...
