august in december

It was on my to-go-list for such a long time, but today we actually experienced "Villa August" in december. It was a grey and cold winterday, but it felt warm and bright being there. Sharing our visit at Villa Augustus with lovely friends and all our kids. Knowing we will visit it on a sunny day (perhaps in august) some time.

PS. the neon pink christmas decoration fish left at the top of the tree (at picture nine) has moved to our X-MAS tree in Zutphen as a sweet souvenir :)

b-day blessings

A busy week, actually too busy and most of all with lots of mixed emotions, but nevertheless, or perhaps because of that, a great week, like:
* Sam singing at the Muzehof on tuesday recorded by Floor also recording himself singing along and Pip warning him :)
* Sam performing at 'Mighty Mathilda' with school at the Hanzehof on friday and saturday evening. It was such a great performance shared with my loved ones on friday. For Sam it meant ending one and a half year practising with fellow students, which was quite emotional; and
* yesterday celebrating Floor's seventh birthday together with lovely presents but most of all lovely people. While going to sleep he said it was his most wonderful birthday ever :)

Have a nice week, perhaps enjoying celebrating 'Sinterklaas' on 5 December!

counting down till XMAS

Still eight days left and it will be the 1th of december. The day our youngest son will celebrate his seventh B-day and the start of counting down the days until XMAS. 
Recently I collected some great DIY advent calenders on Pinterest. Still one week left to make your own personal one!
Check my advent-pinterestboard for more inspiration!

By the way on 1 december the episodes of 'Christmas with Linus' will be on television again. 
One of our most favorite pre-XMAS traditions!

crushed blessings

A busy week, feeling a little bit crushed between loving my job and enjoying to be home with the kids, but also with nice blessings like:
* rearranging and restyling the bedrooms: Pip and Floor sleeping together from now on. Just hoping they don't make it too cosy every evening :)
* feeling gifted the kids enjoy their sports activities so much: Floor playing football and making a goal last saturday with his left leg!, Pip loving horse riding and Sam enjoying his singing lessons and practising for the stage performance 'Mathilda' (with three performances at the end of this month at the Hanzehof!)
* celebrating the birthday-party of Roos, the daughter of very lovely friends, this sunday
* winning a 'Plak 't' sticker designed by Lidewijs on facebook for our LOVE WALL. Happy and sharing a picture of it soon!
* a very nice, new cooperation on my blog, sharing a guestblog in january or february next year!

Have a nice week!

Sint inspiration

Moustache button by Jootje Styling
Haringmaatjes by VIS-R

Recently I launched my first give-away in collaboration with DaWanda, an online platform for shops selling handmade, unique and sometimes individualized products.

Happy to share the Met Melk&Suiker favorites for the Sinterklaas-special on the Dutch DaWanda-site. Because the old Sint-Nicholas really needs your help to buy all the presents in time for his b-day event on December 5th*.

But be carefull, you can wander around for hours on this lovely site for your Sint-event preparation :)
And while the shops on DaWanda share products which are nice to have every event or moment of the year I will update my I-wish list every now and then!

Enjoy the 'Sint-voorpret'!

*for all foreign followers on my blog: Sinterklaas is a dutch event where Sint Nicholas ;) is celebrating his birthday on the 5th of December buying presents for all the children in The Netherlands.
