Amsterdam etc.

Friday's blue, blue skies!
I had not seen such a beautiful, blue sky in quite some time!



I am unbelievably happy with this gorgeous cup and saucer!
My mom found it at the local Thriftstore...
Look at those details!





A bowl,
also found at the Thriftstore...



I am in love with this cute, little saucer I found at the Thriftstore (again).
The tray is from Ikea.



As I told you last week, I've visited Amsterdam last Thursday with my mom.
It was such an amazing day,
full of happiness, laughter and of course:
SHOPPING!


(House Doctor tin.)

I love the print of this Dutch feeling notebook!



Also bought of few pieces of clothing...
I've noticed I like it so much more to buy stuff for my home and accessories, than buying clothes lately...





And I bought these gorgeous tea-towels from House Doctor.
Unfortunately I don't have pictures of them, so here they are...
(I bought number 9 and 11.)



A closer look to the print of number 11 on the glove (?).



I have been making these cute, quite big hearts recently.
I really love the shape...





I've been making this 'collage' on the inside of my closet,
so when I open it and I have no clue what to wear,
here's some inspiration!



Oh, before I forget:
I also bought this warm, soft and hairy carpet at Ikea!
As you can see, Vince also loves it a lot!



(If you like, check out the complete Everyday Collection of House Doctor here!)

How has your weekend been so far?
I hope you've had a wonderful time!

charlotte said...

Lovely post!!!!, I like everything!
I'm looking for a carpet like this!!!!, Do you remember how much did it cost you????

Mila said...

Hi Charlotte!

The carpet costs 59,90 EURO.
I think that's quite cheap for a wool carpet like this! :)

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments!
