getting some vitamins
to compensate these.....
working on a new DIY project
a gorgeous rose and thrift finds: a kitschy souvenir from Greece and a postcard booklet from Versailles
Waiting for dinner on Easter sunday (which was cheese fondue)
New Dutch stamps, I don't really like orchids, but I do like how colourful these are
A couple of weeks ago I received an email from a lady over at Reader's Digest, asking me if they could use my sharpie plate DIY on their website. Yes please! It got featured with 5 other lovely DIY projects, that are 'unique and easy ideas' for Mother's Day gifts. Woo and hoo!
Tomorrow we'll be celebrating King's Day over here in the Netherlands. We celebrate the King's birthday, which is actually a day later, but because that's a sunday, it will be celebrated the day before. This national holiday includes concerts, flea markets, partying and wearing orange. It's tradition that the King visits two different cities on his birthday. What will you be doing this weekend? Hope you'll have fun!
I never see the second pics!ReplyDelete

First of all - Congrats on the clever gift featured at Reader's Digest! FUN-Tastic!!!! Second have fun for a King's B-Day! I think if is a fun celebration and wearing orange .... hmmm.... for me it is a challenge:) Not too much of the orange kinds girl! Lovely pictures - especially the orchids stamps! My weekend will be a little lonely :( my husband doing a golf tournament two weekends in the row.....but then we are going on the cruse!!!!! Yahhh!!!!ReplyDelete
A cruise sounds wonderful! Hope you're going somewhere sunny. We are having sad looking weather over here. Orange is a challenging colour for me to. I don't have anything orange in my wardrobe, so I am rocking orange nails right now!Delete
I love the graffiti you always find, and giant french fries? yum yum. lol. any holiday that requires you to wear orange is a holiday I'll celebrate. :0)ReplyDelete
Congrats on Readers Digest!
Thanks Debbi! Can you imagine those fries being real? Yum!Delete
Does Dutch stamps are so pretty. I have been trying to get more vitamins in too. I have began starting each day with lemon water.ReplyDelete
I'm trying that too! I always forget to drink enough water. Maybe a pretty bottle with water and lemons might do the trick.Delete
Awesome collection of stuff. I love that your Easter dinner was fondue. We had DIY tacos :)ReplyDelete
This weekend I'm taking a ferry over to the island my sister and her family live on to celebrate my neice's baptism. Then on Sunday, I'm walking a walk to raise funds for beating MS back here in Vancouver. Busy and fun!
Happy Kings Day! Hope he pops by your town!
Awesome that you're doing the fundraising walk! And now I am wanting taco's....Delete
I hope you have a fun weekend, I would love to see King's day photos as I've never witnessed it in person :) Also those fries have made me hungry!ReplyDelete

I didn't do any real partying, but I did get to eat a yummy orange, Dutch treat!Delete
It's interesting reading the comments.. Everyone focusses on something different in the post. Me, well, I liked the guy on the wall.ReplyDelete
Congrats on your plate.
Thanks Andrea! I also like seeing how different people like different things!Delete
How wonderful, and well-deserved, that your project was featured! So cool! Now, about those giant french fries--is that a shop sign?!ReplyDelete
Yes it is! They have the best fries in town.Delete
Congratulations for the feature Marieken!!! I'm so happy for you.ReplyDelete
You have great photo collections again. I so love french friens and lemon slices too. Great stamp collections, reminds me of my own that has been so stagnant.
Wishing you a great week ahead!
Thanks Diane! I need to balance out those fatty fries with some vitamins!Delete
Your DIY project looks great! And again congrats with your post in the Readers Digest! You and your DIY are awesome!!ReplyDelete
You're awesome too!Delete
Wow, congrats on being featured on the Reader's Digest website, that is a great motivation for even more DIYs! Hope you had a great orange weekend as well. Mine was very creative (hint: https://www.etsy.com/listing/187575270/fairy-art-fantasy-photo-whimsical-wall) and also filled with sunshine and boardgames with friends!ReplyDelete
Thanks Sonya! Sunshine and boardgames sound like fun, and I love your new print.Delete
