Sliding doors

I am really looking into these DIY sliding doors, so practical for small spaces.
Browsing through pinterest I see a few diferent ways to do it. Barnstyle, or with plumbing tubes (my least favorite) or with a rail system on top ond little wheels on the floor ( i dont like to see rails in the floor)

Great to divide a room, hide a nook, close a pantry etc endless posibilities.

retty right! I adore it!

Love the positive message on the office wall! A really good idea to make one yourself in vinyl and put it on the wall for you and you and your co workers.
We outgrown our office and we are currently looking for a big warehouse, so that is quite exciting as
I want a lot of Space. I want a big office and showroom, one that I can decorate to my taste.
My current office is too tiny. Me and my workers are working too close to eachother, for the moment we are enjoying eachothers company, I am very blessed to have such great girls working for me.
Two kids and a good going company is too much to handle some times. I admire all mums that are entrepeneurs as well, It's hard work!
My greetings to to mum Camilla from Effortless Style. She has two adorable sons, spends lovely quality time with them and besides work she has time to make posts for her lovely blog.

Crossfit on my mind


Hello, hello
Sorry for the absence, my multitasking mama skills took over and aaaaah no time for blogging.
Blogging for me is a luxury, wich now September, back to school time is going to be much easier to do. My little guy Matteo will go to school for the first time, he is now 2.5 years ;)

I am doing Crossfit! Its hard, last week was the first time and I was so hurt, I wasn´t almost  able to dress myself. But, it´s addictive, so happy I go again.
I need to get this post babybody back in to shape, and it´s way harder than it looks like.
Gotta go, will be back soon with nice stories of my favorite places in Amsterdam.

Phone home

We have a new phone for our home. After having an oldfashioned homephone with a cord and 2 babies...not practical. I need to keep an eye on them all times.
I decided to get this pretty e-pure swiss phone, and I love it.

Wedding preparations

Yes yes, we are going to get married, finally after being together for 10 years and having 2 kids, we finally tie the knot. So my dear close friends who read this blog, you'll be getting a save the date card to your address soon. It will be next year so there is margin to arrange the things we need.
I always dreamed of having our wedding in Ibiza, but we chose Amsterdam to be our wedding venue, that's of course my birthplace and to me it seems the best option.
I will keep you updated with the progress.
I already bought this beautiful LOVE cake topper. I purchased it on a lovely Etsy shop called Betterofwed Its elegant, sweet, simple but chic.

I also purchased these bride and groom signs in gold.

 I made a wedding planner, bought a handy and pretty pdf file on Etsy in the shop called Laura Drayton 75 page of keeping track of appointments, expenses and to do lists.
It helps you step by step to organize and plan everything in to perfection.

So thrilled.

My latest buys - Gold imperial glasses

I just received these gold beauties a few days ago. The above picture I took with my phone, is where I have my plates, glasses, vases and bowls. The gold glasses are vintage Sohi imperial Culver glasses that I purchased on Etsy and Ebay. Just amazing! Can´t understand why nobody makes these kind of glasses any more, they are so gorgeous. I found a lovely article about them here on the blog Tatter and Frey She has a lovely Etsy shop with vintage items to decorate your house here.
The other glasses more to the right are Vintage Culver glasses also but with a geometric pattern.

This collection is drop dead gorgeous. I am addicted now to start collecting more myself.
But I am already happy withe the ones I have and they look so good on my shelf!

Baby news update

Dear all, thank you for the patience! Today the 29th is Oliver´s 6 months milestone.
He is such a happy baby. Above picture big brother Matteo is giving a kiss.
So how is it to have to little ones you might ask? Ufff their a handfull, that´s why my lack of writing posts on my beloved blog. In the beginning there was some jalousy but now that Matteo is more involved in helping with baby Oliver he doesn´t show it that much. Matteo even advises me when the baby is crying I must check if Oliver has his pacifier...
Matteo starts talking better and better. Today when we were making a stroll in the city he was sitting on his daddy´s shoulders and he saw a short haired dog walking in front of them. Matteo said: daddy daddy, I can see the dogs butt, do you see it too?
I was just out of the blue, and I just had to laugh.

Dear Dad, happy birthday tomorrow the 30th of June! Love you
kisses from the 4 of us
