A nice morning after all!

We all have been sick and still tired,tired.tired!Must be the dull and dark weather.I don’t hate winter but four days with cold wind and no sun is no fun at all!But just like the little gift bag on the picture says 'enjoy the simple things ‘and that's what I did today.


Simple and very pleasant to smell is this room spray  from Durance.This is a fresh citrus smell that will brighten every dull day.But they sell more very nice perfumes.They are not the cheapest but the smell last long.



I also like the bottle !!

I made this new corner next to the fire-place.The table comes from another corner in the living-room(which is a bit empty now)but wanted to change something just for fun….still have to fill up the other corner .

Re- arranged the inside of my cupboard just for fun…DSC02475 DSC02481 DSC02483 DSC02486


It was a very cold morning but I stepped on my bicycle  and went to the second- hand shop to bring some stuff.Wandered if I would actually go into the shop or just deliver the goods and go.I never come outside empty handed !!But you never know maybe it’s my lucky day and I find something nice for my empty corner.Now you must know that one of the things I brought in was a large bag of old magazines and guess  what I came out of the shop with ,the same bag but filled with different magazines!!So much for cleaning out the cupboard and giving space to something else !!It was a large pile of Cote-sud and Cote quest magazines that I just could not resist!



Only two euro’s!!What would you have done !!


I also needed a present and went to the ‘woonstore’ this is a sort of an outlet shop  that sells Braxton.Riviera maison Riverdale and lots more for less money.Found these wire crowns (2.50 euro)and candleholder(3.95euro).A few shops further a saw the same candle for 12.50 Euros!!!!So if you are ever in the neighborhood.You can also visit www.woonoutlet.I’m going to keep these charming items myself!

I wanted some Emma Bridgewater smelly things for my mother –in laws birthday.And a very nice shop in Alkmaar is ‘van goede huize’in the ‘achterstraat.They were very busy re-doing the second floor and was very pleased to hear that they were making a Jeanne 'darc room and are going to sell the magazines and other stuff!
