The one with (even) more doors

Doors are among my favorite subjects for photo-taking. After my last door post, I thought that needed to be the last one, because I can imagine not everyone is a door aficionado like me. But after the post about our day in Zwolle, I noticed that there are more of you who like them (or you guys were being polite). So here it is, another post solely dedicated to doors. 
I thought it might be a fun idea, to make another post, with your doors in the spotlight! If you're up for it, you can drop me a line at including a photo of your door and a link to your blog (if you have one). Let's say somewhere before the end of this month? I'll post your doors (include your link) in the beginning of june. It doesn't have to be a good one, I think if there's an award for most horrific looking door, mine would certainly be a nominee.

Haven't seen enough doors? More doors here, here, and here.

The one with the DaWanda Lovebook

A while ago we were asked if we would like one of our travel notebooks to be featured in the DaWanda Summer Lovebook. Yes please! We were sent some old fashioned paper books, all the way from Berlin. The Lovebook is also up on their website. I loved the mini garden and the basket with the colourful lid. If you're looking to buy someone (or yourself) a gift, Dawanda is having a Family Discount Special, from now on through the 26th. Participating shops offer a 15% discount. Our items can be ordered for a special price on thursday and monday. And look at that stunner of a stamp that came along with the package!

The one with the Etsy finds

Oh my! I think I haven't done an Etsy find post since somewhere before Christmas. It's about time to have another one. No theme over here, 'just' gorgeous things that have been calling my name.

The one with the old factory

Woke up way early yesterday and received a message from M, if I wanted to go thrift shopping. The washing machine was already doing it's thing, so with the mandatory sunday housekeeping being taken care of (I'm not a very ambitious housewife on sundays...), I thought I deserved a bit of fun. Each weekend there's a flea market in an old factory nearby. In the third photo you can see the church that also can be seen from my kitchen window. The factory stopped being a factory (it used to make wheat starch, for soups) two years ago and serves lots of purposes now. A 'mixture of commercial, creative and cultural tennants' (according to the website, only in Dutch), now inhabit the factory. 
The flea market was a bit of a let down. Items for sale were way overprized or in bad shape. The building itself made up for the thrifting disaster. Even though it was raining, I dodged most of the raindrops and managed to take some photos (I will definitely go back again if the sun decides to show it's face again)(hopefully some time soon!). 


We had coffee with apple crumble and on the way back to the car we accidentally ended up at an exhibition about archeology somewhere in the building. I love not making any special plans and seeing where the weekend takes me. How were your saturday and sunday? Do you like planning ahead? If you feel like sharing, I'd love to read about your weekend-adventures in the comments below!
