The one with DaWanda's pop up store

Last sunday I travelled to Amsterdam with my mom. Almost two weeks ago we (me, mum and aunt M.) worked nearly non-stop to get two boxes full of printed tote bags, baby onesies, notebooks, and postcards ready in time for the pop-up store DaWanda opened this weekend. 

Sorry for the amount of pictures in this post. I guess this most be some sort of proud momma thing  :-)  I loved seeing 'my' things in a real brick and mortar shop (other than my own), everything looked really cool, and I got much inspiration on how I can display some of the items in my own shop!

Love the oxblood bag and print

 On sunday, Bobini was making personalized rings and cuffs at the shop.

The shop is located in Amsterdam, Gerard Doustraat 76. More info can be found on DaWanda's Facebookpage. Many other charming shops are close by. A pair of Chucks I haven't spotted anywhere else yet (striped, bit of a tweed-look and shiny black toes) wanted to go home with me. And who am I to say no to a pair of awesome shoes? I'm afraid I am developing a bit of a sneaker addiction.....

Maria Mena - I don't wanna see you with her

Sleeping at last - Every little thing she does is magic

John Legend - Under the stars

Any new discoveries? Or old tunes that you've rediscoverd? I love to know what it is you are listening to at the moment? Already playing Christmas songs?

 Hi there!

Receiving mail from Diane, including these stamps

Something that I didn't like, was a my bike's chain that broke and made me have to walk (45 minutes!) to work. But I did like seeing this sunrise, something I may not have noticed if I were riding my bike

Love these pretty lights!  They always remind me of this song

The one with the Big Draw 2015

A couple of weeks ago the second edition of the Big Draw took place in my hometown. It's an annual event taking place worldwide. It's an initiative by the Campaign for Drawing, and the first edition was in London. The whole town is asked to draw, and across town many works of art could be seen. In this (picture heavy) post, some of them can be enjoyed. Hope you like them as much as I did! 

Do you have a favourite? I love the Fuuki Bunnies, they can often be seen across town, all year round. My friend Eefje from Atelier Luna was lucky and got her shop window 'Fuukied'. In case you can't get enough of the Big Draw, here and here are my posts of last years' edition.
