The one with some Etsy finds for the home

Since Etsy hasn't brought Treasuries back (yet)(but with the new CEO I am hoping they will be bringing the 'old' Etsy back), I am sharing some of my favourite finds here today. I am especially smitten with that dream of a mirror! Just to be clear, this post is just for fun, it's not in any way sponsored by Etsy, or the featured sellers.

The one with a visit to Museum Kurhaus

On april 27th we celebrate King's Day in the Netherlands. It's a national holiday, where we celebrate King Willem-Alexander's birthday. Traditionally the festivities involve music, flea markets, red-white-and-blue flags adorn houses and we eat orange coloured 'tompoucen', typically Dutch pastry that's pink coloured normally, and it's impossible to eat them in a chic way! The King himself celebrates by visiting a different city each year.


Me and my mum fled the country and hustle and bustle of the city. We wanted to visit Museum Kurhaus in Kleve for quite some time and we thought it might be a perfect day to do some art-watching. Kleve is just across the border in Germany, and only half an hour away by car. Does it sound familiar? Whenever you are on a holiday, you do all sorts of stuff and visit special places, but the things that are closer to home go onto the one-day-I'll-do-that-list? And my apologies for the picture heavy-ness of this post!


The museum is housed in a former spa, isn't it gorgeous?






We had a lunch break, with waffles, warm cherries and cream, big Yum!



I love that there's a printing press in the background of this photo!  


 



After visiting the museum, we had a stroll through the park.


 



The museum is definitely something I would recommend. There something for everyone, photography, paintings, sculptures, textiles. I really liked the variety. Also, if you like architecture, the building by itself is worth the visit. More info on the museum can be found on their website (only in German and Dutch).

A little blast from the past, more Kings Day posts over here, here, and here

The one with a shop update

As you may know, I have a shop on Etsy, and for a while now, I wasn't happy with the photos that accompanied my listings, so I gave my Etsy shop a little make over. I think the new photos make the items look more appealing, and make them stand out more in the crowd when they pop up in search results. To celebrate the new look of the shop, I am offering a 10% discount until the end of the month on all items by using code APRIL10.

 
 
Besides giving the items that were already in the shop a little make over, some brand new products were added too. Last friday the mailman dropped of a box full of black baby rompers and black and dark grey baby t-shirts for printing. I love that I am able now to order not just white and pastel colours for the little ones. Can't wait to start designing and printing them! In case you would like to order something with your own quote or design, don't hestitate to drop me a line.

The one at 'de Honig fabriek'

The first weekend of april my friend R. came over for a visit. She lives in the northern part of the Netherlands. It's about 2,5 hours away, so we don't see eachother very often. That day, it was a beautiful and sunny spring day, so we had a little walk. Destination: 'de Honig fabriek'. It's an old factory that made soups, but nowadays it serves as a cultural hotspot, with restaurants, a brewery, an art gallery and it houses lots of artists and small companies. In case you like to see more about this place, I blogged about it before over here. Today I'm sharing some street art over at the factory, and some that we spotted on our way there.
