This weekend started with a visit to Rollende Keukens. A festival all about food. It was a bit cold and grey weather wise. But the food was very good.
Well, on the umbrella that I was holding that is.
Today started out grey & wet. But with all the newly green trees it looked like such a wonderful mix match of colours, that I had to go out and take some pictures. So I walked around the city, warmed up with a cup of coffee in a coze cafe and returned home to watch episodes of The Wire (I only just started watching it…)
Now, once again, I wait for the pulla dough to double in size, it takes two hours…Making cinnamon & custard/coconut ones today!
Happy Saturday – do you have any nice plans for the weekend?
In between preparing dough for pulla (sweet buns) and baking them, I went for a short walk through our neighbourhood. It was lovely. The sun was shining brightly and more and more green appears. I ended the walk with a sip of strawberry juice.

I stumbled upon this meme a few weeks ago. It triggered me into thinking about blogging days gone by (or are they?). When I look around in the blogosphere I see less and less play. I miss it, like I missed being a curator of my own little museum. So in honour of play, here are my answers to this meme and I encourage you to join me. Here goes. 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1-list via Sandra.

Some of my flickr favs of the Big Apple.
It might be a bit of a cliché, but I dream of one day visiting New York. Today especially. I’m feeling under the weather and I’m looking for ways to cheer myself up. What better way to do so, than by planning a trip to New York. Or perhaps even by day dreaming of living there some day.
Have you ever been? What would you recommend? Would love to hear your New York stories.
Remember those early blogging + Flickr days? Sharing mosaics of your favorite flickr photo’s. I always loved putting those posts together. Like being a curator of your very own museum.
Lately I’ve noticed that I hardly ever look at other people’s flickr photo’s anymore. I also stopped using pinterest (which I always loved). It dawned on me that I was following so many people, it just became a little too much. So I spring cleaned my pinterest + flickr account. It feels good to follow less people, I see more. And I know in time the list of people will grow again. There are just so many inspiring people out there. Which is, by the way, not a complaint. Just an observation.
I miss being a curator of my own little museum. So I thought I’d start sharing a bit of my favorite things, pictures, finds, books etc. here again. Let see how it goes.
I’ve been day dreaming a lot lately. Thinking about places I want to visit, things I want to do, shoes I want to buy. I’ve also discovered many fine new-for-me places on this world wide web. I love to get tangled up in it. Reading archives, browsing photo’s. Some days, that it’s the best you can do. For example on days in April when it is colder outside than it was in December and when you long for the warmth of a few sun rays on your skin.
pictures taken at Reluct’s studio + posted on instagram a couple of weeks ago
I am working I worked I am at the studio of Reluct agency. No one else is here, so I took the opportunity to work in a nice + quiet space. At two pm I’m still trying to get into work mode. I think it’s just not going to happen today, so I decided to write a few lines here.

As I typ this the wind is howling outside. It’s a very cold weekend. A very wintry weekend, especially since it’s Spring. But it’s okay for now. It’s perfect weather to stay inside, to catch up on blog reading and, of course, to write a post.
Yesterday was spent in Rotterdam. Visiting Joost’s cousin + sipping cocktails + going out for fab Chinese. The night ended with a train ride home, special beer shopping + watching 90′s movies and listening to 80′s and 90′s music. A very good day.
Today we will continue working on our new project. I’m so excited and can’t wait to see how it develops more and more. Have a good feeling about this one.
