E’s Tree

By | Interior, Mamalife, Things we love, Various | No Comments

Christmas is a good occasion to go overboard with kitsch… Nothing better to get me into this “grownup” sensation of Christmas than some twinkling lights, glitter, candles, santas, lovely smells and quirky ornaments. I have been collecting vintage ornaments forever (as evidenced here several times, year after year) and have dreamed of creating a tree for my child one day,…

Bloem for your Home

By | Flowers, Interior, Life & style, Things we love | 2 Comments

“I must have flowers, always and always”. Okay, famous words not mine, but still exactly my sentiment. I can live without five star menus (if you pass me just the dessert, please?), fancy make up and jewellery. But I can’t live without flowers. If I had to save drastically (and this won’t turn into a savings recommendation post, promise) –…

E’s Little Shop

By | DIY, Play | No Comments

After E’s kitchen, you might wonder what was our next project. Well, a toy shop, there you go. We bought a simple wooden shop, painted it white (with some gold details) and added all the wooden goodies I collected over the last months. It’s a big hit and played with daily. E sells me cakes and sausages, goes shopping with…

Bath Time Favourites

By | Mamalife, Things we love | No Comments

Summer is coming to an end. The leaves are changing, the morning’s air is crisp, and the light is different. We are making sure to soak up the last late summer moments, hours and – if we’re lucky – days. I have a post prepared about our month away in Provence. Kind of like our summer diary. But first, let…

Being Two

By | Mamalife, Parenting | No Comments

I am two, and I will never be one again. Now you probably think, Scarlett, are you nuts? Well I read such an intriguing article recently, where the author and mom put the thought forward that after having kids, you’re not just one being anymore, but two. You’re your kids, as well. Your whole being thinks and acts and feels for more…

Elma’s Universe

By | Interior, Life & style, Mamalife | 2 Comments

We’re a liiiittle late to the party regarding nursery “reveals”, given that little is alredy four months (what? eep!) old. Aren’t you supposed to do that before birth? Anyway. Ahem. But then again, a couple of inevitabilities (and, well, baby! ha, my favorite excuse these days) brought us this far: unorganized state (which we all know really is a euphemism…

Family Christmas Eve Dinner

By | From my kitchen, Savoury | One Comment

From the safety and peace of my couch, I am now already looking back on two fabulous Christmas dinners. Going through the pictures now, I can’t help but marvel at the beauty of it all. The chats, the laughter, the loud children’s voices, the merrymaking, the food (oh, blissful food) the decoration, the presents (not by the tree but by…

Summer Home

By | Interior | 2 Comments

isn’t it so true when they say “summer time, and the living is easy”? i like the open-window kind of lifestyle. breezes sweeping through the flat, flowers in every corner, the balcony potted plants are growing like their weed (no pun intended), the more neutral tones gave way to summery, peachy tones, the bedding is replaced for breezy linen throws…

Easter Picks

By | Life & style | 2 Comments

the times when easter was still all about egg hunts and finding your easter basket (that someone put together with much love and care) are long gone, yet especially on holidays like easter, i miss being a child. i’ve been awfully spoilt, that’s for sure, but i wouldn’t want to make it any other way for my own kids, one…
