Every year we celebrate Queensday on the 30th of April. But this year is a special one, because from now on we will have a King and a Queen in Holland and next year we will celebrate Kingsday on the 27th of April. Organizing games, selling and buying secondhand stuff and having a party together.
Last year we stayed in Amsterdam together, visiting the Vondelpark with the kids. This year I will stay in our hometown with the kids, remembering the wonderful day in Amsterdam together last year.

Enjoy a happy orange Queensday tomorrow!

Reading the new online vtwonen magaloque I really fell for the new dip&dye products. Like beddings, cushions and a serving tray in four beautiful colors: coral, orange, blue and grey.
To take a look at this new vtwonen collection visit the vtwonen-webshop or click and buy in the online magaloque.

shop & styling blessings

Sharing my weekend blessings:
* friday I rearranged the furniture in our living room. I've always had the desire to have an adult home and a grown-up closet. So a few years ago we bought a real house and a PAX-IKEA with a storage for shoes, socks and all other neccessities in an adult closet. But I nevertheless keep the urge to change our interior in an unconventional way. So I moved our bench to the kitchen-part and our table in front of our television :). But, I'm actually happy with it.
* saturday I went shopping in Arnhem, visiting Sissy Boy Homeland, van mij, Meijer & Floor, Humanoid, having a great lunch at Zilli and ending our shopping day enjoying the sun at Dudok.
* sundaymorning I did my running routine, cleaned our house and in the afternoon we enjoyed Charlottes sixt anniversery and the lovely weather!

Enjoy a new spring week!
