I have some friends who are getting married next year! How lovely! So here a great blog of Sarah Yates, a photographer from the USA. She believes that your wedding photos should make you happy, and remind you how much you love your husband/ wife/ family/ friends/ dress/ flowers etc. So for all those love birds on this world here a little wedding boost! I think these wedding pictures are so inspiring. Have a look, maybe it will help you to make your day unforgettable...

Have you heard about Leslie Miles before? Well I just visited his gorgeous blog! He shows us the most wonderful pictures... I am always happy if somebody is attending me on such an inspirational site, thank you Eva! You can find photos in different categories selected by Leslie. I was pleasantly surprised by seeing " I dream in natural light" and " Keep curious". His aim is not to be everyone's 10th favorite blog, but rather 10 people's favorite blog, like that too!

I want to tell you about a lovely new brand named POM Amsterdam! The founder, Liesbeth Lotgering, is one of my best friends. She loves fabrics and food and decided to do something with these two passions. I am so proud of her! POM stands for Piece Of Mine, beautiful scarfs and feminine with a funny twist... just like her. You can choose great fabrics and colourful pompidoms ( little pompons).
Want to have a POM scarf? Find everything on her blog we love fabrics! Or come to her introduction sale in Amsterdam on the 2th of December! Her site will be online soon!

Somehow I still feel like I just said goodbye to Summer season. But the fact that today my good old friend Sinterklaas arrived in the Netherlands made me realize that the cosy and happy Winter season really started. So today I bought myself very nice christmas cards. Couldn't resist these beautiful illustrations of het Paradijs. And of course some lovely marzipan to put in the shoe of my boyfriend
By accident I discovered the great site of Julia Rothman: Book by it's cover. I really like the name of her blog because it really describes how I buy books... mostly I first have to fall in love on it's cover or illustrations... same with wine. A nice wine label makes it so much easier for me to choose. Maybe it is a little bit weird, maybe you will recognize this way of buying things :-) Julia shows the most beautiful books of the world.

My week started with a lovely and sweet present of Maartje Kuiper! She gave me one of the most greatest agenda's I have ever seen!! So nice of her! We worked together for a few projects this year. She is a very talented graphic designer and she has absolutely a great sence of humor which you can see in her work. Love her style. She designed the agenda herself, every page is different, funny and surprising. You can find the agenda in different shops in the Netherlands. Or email Maartje yourself, maybe if you are lucky she will send you one!
