This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.
Naps are also encouraged, if shopping is out of the question.

City Girl , Country Girl

I saw this photo on the blog  Zsa Zsa Bellagio .
I am inspired !
Just because we will be leaving a huge city to go live in the country, near a huge city, doesn't mean my days of being stylish and well dressed will be over !
I can look like this when I pick veggies in the garden !

I love the house, I love the model. Someone else can do the veggie picking !

What To Wear ? What To Wear ??

This is my style. Not too gimmicky,not too ordinary. 
But really just a pair of trousers and a white top.

I have the bag, now I need that jacket !

The rest of them might be walking around looking like this....

but you will find me in something like this.

Must Have ... Colourful

From the Sartorialist ..

I guess this means I must get a pair of colourful trousers when I am back in Summer time again. 
I don't think I will do the colourful hair look ..
But most of all, I must get that Prada bag.

The Sun Was Out and Now It's Not

During the week it was so beautiful ! Sunny and warm and bright.
The weekend is here, it is cold and grey and gloomy.
Time for Tea and perhaps Take Away for dinner.
Have a Good Weekend !

I love the idea of using furniture in the bathroom.

The archway to the bed is perfect. 

A beautiful rug in the kitchen .. wonderful .

Window Shopping

I found a little something ...

It is hard to believe that he has been gone 9 months. 


Looking from outside into an open window one never sees as much as when one looks through a closed window. There is nothing more profound, more mysterious, more pregnant, more insidious, more dazzling than a window lighted by a single candle. Baudelaire.

Thank you and goodbye, Maurice Sendak

"Kids don't know about best sellers," he said. "They go for what they enjoy. They aren't star chasers and they don't suck up. It's why I like them."

Have a Seat, Make Yourself At Home

pia jane bijkerk

I used to "invite" Pup up onto the sofa . 
When he was younger and more spry, he was allowed on the bed. 
He never smelled like a dog, he was always groomed and clean and softer than any stuffed toy or baby blanket and he was warm on a cold night.
What more could you ask for ?

So these days, missing Pup, I notice other dogs and pets in photos of homes.
This caught my eye.

I have decided that when we move to our new home in our old country, I will get a new dog as soon as possible and any piece of furniture is fine for us and for the dog.
What is it for, anyway, make yourself at home ~
