The one with the things I liked this week (95)


Awesome door, awesome windows


Sometimes you just need to treat yourself (to a new planner)

Receiving Postcrossing mail from Bulgaria

Knock, knock

Seen on my sunday walk

Love this new Tony's Chocolonely flavour (banana + walnut)
(Tony's Chocolonely is a Dutch chocolate brand, with a cool mission)
(no idea whether or not it's available outside of the Netherlands)

How was your week? Things are starting to get cold over here, and I am very happy that the only outdoorsy thing I've got planned for the rest of the weekend, is a trip to the library. If you have any book-titles to recommend, I'd love to read them in the comments below. Hope you'll have a great weekend, see you next week (with a new DIY project). Cheers!

  1. It's getting super cold here too...sigh....

    PS I love that red door so much, and I love the window panes surrounding it.

    1. At least you've got some serious knitting skills to get you through winter! Let's hope it'll be a short one...

  2. Hi Marieken! That door really caught my attention!! I love that the unbalanced geometric structure.

    Yes you deserve a new planner. Having a planner will bring you documentation of great memories.

    I always feel happy when you showcase your happiness to a piece of stamp. I'm thinking of giving you something from the Philippines. Would that be fine with you?

    1. It's very tasty, I think one of my favourite Tony flavours. But maybe I need to taste some more to be sure ;-)

  4. Banana and walnut chocolate?! That sounds pretty amazing--I wonder how they get the banana flavor in there. I need to travel more places so I can sample the chocolates of many lands!

    1. Those flavours go really good together, there's also a bar with dark chocolate, orange and rosemary, and another one with chocolate and liquorice. The last one's not really my cup of tea. I like chocolate, and I like liquorice, but not necessarily together.... Travelling to sample chocolates sounds like a perfect holiday plan to me!

  5. That chocolate sounds intriguing. I've had banana and chocolate together but never in the form of a candy bar! The door knocker is so neat. How original to actually have it in the shape of a hand! They are usually lions or pineapples and such. That typewriter reminds me of the family one we had growing up.

    1. I have seen the lion ones, but never one in the shape of a pineapple. This was the first handshaped one I've met in person, seen a lot of pretty ones on Pinterest.

  6. There's just something about red doors...Always mysterious. Always fun!
    Love that typewriter you snapped a shot of too.

    1. My door is a red one, but not nearly as goodlooking as this one!

  8. Ya I've never seen Tony's here. Looks awesome!

    That door knocker is cool/creepy. Thanks for sharing ;)

    Ok books: do you like ghost stories? I really liked "Her Fearful Symmetry" by Audrey Niffenegger. It had a very cool surprise ending!

    Not up to much. Our kids are going out with Mr. Hausfrau's parents today so we have a couple of hours to hang out alone!! We might just get some Christmas shopping done...

    1. Just looked the book up at the New York Times book review, sounds like a complicated story! I'll check if they've got it at the library at my next visit :-)

  9. knock, knock!
    Still dreaming of a door-knocker with a lions head but this one is really awesome too!
    Didn't you felt the tendency to knock?

  11. Wow, I love the red door and the door knocker :)
    The chocolate sounds good too, and wouldn't mind owning that old typewriter!!!
    It is 0°C here. I'm reading Anita Moorjani "Dying to be me". Gripping stuff!

  12. We had a few cold morning las week, but it is back to usual t-shirt and shorts! I love December in Florida - if you need to get away from cold - I can recommend Miami! i'm going to Art Bezel 2014 this weekend and I hope to sharing more pictures with you all! Love the chocolate and banana - looks so yummy!!!
