Pancakes for dinner, soap for dessert

I’m one of those people who still get’s childishly excited about their birthday, and I’m sorry about that, but I just can’t help it. I spent the day doing just what I wanted: I went to the Noordermarkt where I bought a beautiful little vase,... read more

I just had the best day. First off all, because I had a lovely day with some really lovely people who came and hung out in our garden to celebrate my birthday. Second: I.FINALLY.FINISHED.THE.SWEATER. Technically, I had finished the knitting part on Wednesday but then... read more
