Monday market in Amsterdam


I really like the Noordermarkt on Monday mornings in the moment. The market is in the center of Amsterdam. If you are looking for vintage clothes that's the place to visit.

At my last visit I managed to find some amazing kaftans for the endless summer to come and I did see some cool ceramics.

Fine week,
Kay

PS: love Stern Africa.  You can find them at the market.

open garden

  
This weekend they had the Open gardens in Kent. I love to visit private gardens. That gives you so many ideas. You can learn about plants and you can meet some friendly people.

Have a look if there are open gardens in your neighbourhood. In Amsterdam they are in June. Check out Open Tuinen Dagen, also a nice one to visit.

Fine week,
Kay

PS: Got tickets to see Agnes Obel, sure that will be a fine little concert.

vintage love


Here are some photos from some of the carboot sales we visited last week in the UK. I managed to find some nice pieces for my house and I always look for plants in spring (they are a lot cheaper at the market then in the garden center).

Fine little week,
Kay

PS: Had a great time at the Yogafestival in Leiden last Sunday, I think it's time to get some cool yoga clothes for my next festival.

seaside


Hi there,

We just got back from our trip to England. Some days full of long beach walks, meeting friends, some vintage hunting and just being lazy.

Mister Kay is buying cd's again. I personally still love vinyl but I must say mister Kay is getting the better bargains.

Enjoy your week,
Kay

PS: some new books in the house:
- Wild swimming
- and the new book from Kate Tempest

Easter Time


Lots of yellow this week.

We really needed a little break, Mister Kay and Nila both are recovering from a bad cold. So some time at home to sleep, drink lots of coffee and spinning some vinyl... that's what we need in the moment.

Happy Easter.

see you,
Kay

PS: Some new music in the house: Moondog.

slow living , garden days


Hi,

When I get home I disappear into my garden. Did most of the heavy work in the last couple of weeks with Mister Kay together. Just need to do some seeding and clean up my green house.

Last autumn I spent some money on some more special spring bulbs and I must say, now they start to flower, it's looking really pretty.

Enjoy the sun,
Kay

PS: On my wish list one of the air planting sets from Carolijn Slottje.

citylife in Amsterdam


Amsterdam on a late afternoon, just a perfect little day full of people and lots of things to see.

This weekend the flea market season is starting, so looking forward to find some nice little vintage goodies. Mister Kay started collecting cd's now (guess it's not easy to find some good vintage vinyl anymore)

see you soon,

Kay


PS: love Mary J Blige.

spring feelings


In the moment I dream about spring. I just want sun and start working in my garden. To survive all the rainy days I bring home lots of spring flowers for the house.

I really like Korean face masks which I get in Rotterdam at Haru Haru. And I get my vegan cakes from by Lima .

Enjoy your week,
Kay

PS: New music 'Human' by Rag'n'Bone Man.
