Autumn in Amsterdam

It's Autumn in Amsterdam, leaves are yellow-green with a soft kiss of pink. Last weekend we had an ultimate Autumn feeling. A brigt blue sky, the sun was shining ( as if she was celebrating a farwewell party) and the trees turned into gold.

Vintage flower game

I am a big fan of the Noordermarkt, a little secondhand market in Amsterdam. Every monday morning I find the most beautiful things and always for a small price. Like this game " Do you know this flower?" it works like bingo. The colours and flower illustrations are so pretty!

My travel diary

Every day I think about our wonderful trip that we have made. It was such a beautiful adventure! I really miss the " no worries and every day you see something new" feeling. Fortunately I have my travel diary. So if I want to go back to my travel feeling I just open my Moleskin book. Every day I made a drawing. Here just a few pages to share with you.

Party hats

Having a party tonight? Here a fantastic simple idea of a friend. It's very easy to make these cute party hats. Cut some paper in a round circle, fold them to a hat. And customize the hats with some fabric, stickers, masking tape, or bows. There you are, have a wonderful saturday evening!

Fancy candles

My colleague bought these colourful striped & colour blocked candles. Amazing right? The candles are made by homeless people in Amsterdam. A great social project, organised by de Regenboog, to help homeless people with earning some money. These special handmade products are sold in their own shop named Colors ( situated on the Bilderdijkstraat.)

Birds album from Australia

I bought this bird card album on Cambell market, a brilliant second hand market in Melbourne. The album is published by a tea producer named Tuckfields. It was love at first sight. Like the idea of collecting little beautiful cards, I wonder why this collecting phenomenon for adults disappeared?
