Margo Slingerland

I love the fairytale-ish work from Margo Slingerland. We studied together at the Design Academy Eindhoven and in real life she is just as sweet as her work is!

Pink sweetness

A few months ago I gave a small party with the theme Black & Pink. My sweet sister brought me these beautiful Macarons and cupcakes.

Thanks Sis! They were lovely!

Esthex is a Dutch brand with the most beautiful dolls in their collection. Esther Schuivens is the woman behind the brand. Her collection of dolls started with Sofie. It was many years ago, in the year 2003, when Esther met Sofie. She existed as a drawing, very well hidden away in her parents attic. Esther felt inspired by the humor and simplicity and took the drawing, which she made when she was four years old, downstairs. Sofie was a model for the first Esthex doll and this was only the beginning of creating a whole family of dolls and friendly animals. Some characters like to play a musical tune, others like to entertain around the cradle or pram and some just like hanging around with the little ones. I love the creatures from Esthex and my daughter has a music box from Esthex in her room. For more info see:

Happy Easter!

I wish you all a very happy Easter weekend! My 3 year old son baked this beautiful small cake (with a little help :-) and my 1 year old loves these little quail eggs!
