some things I liked this week …


We are back home in Singapore … and it really feels like HOME. I was a little bit worried first and felt a bit sad leaving Amsterdam and my family and friends… but just one step inside our new house here gave me a very comfortable feel and I knew that is the place where I would like to be for a couple of years! Funny coincidence that Singapore is celebrating it’s 48th Birthday and I understand why Singaporeans are very proud of what they have accomplished in such a short amount of time and in a turbulent part of the world.

On another Note … all her images are welcome in my home!

Such a beautiful vintage desk and chair!

A studio in Tokyo by Leif design park …
Never know what to wear to a party … here’s an idea?
Talking about parties … would you like to win this gift voucher?

Even food looks amazing in copper

How to grow‘ got me so inspired for my balcony … going to give it a try too.

Romantic hallway
just the way I like it!


I have loved GRIJS from the beginning and will always do!

Still very nice to be mentioned in a Blog Love post!

Lemon cake Please!

Nice to read a little story about one of my handmade necklaces.

Download be Happy or make someone happy!


And THIS letter is Important!
Unfortunately I won’t be able to visit … but you can if you are in Amsterdam between 12-18 August… The PIN Gallery, a great initiative by studio Sjoe Sjoe.
