A little break

Dear followers,

As you may know, I recently got a new kitchen and last week my summer vacation ended and I started teaching again. 

It's been a couple of busy busy weeks and I didn't spent lots of time on the internet. Sorry for that. 

In the next two weeks I will post some pictures of my kitchen. I'm still decorating, but with help from Claire of 24Homes, it's becoming a real cosy kitchen..

Hope you're doing fine..

P.S. I also have a facebookpage dedicated to my little white home: https://www.facebook.com/#!/mylittlewhitehome 

Hope to see you there! Best Blogger Tips

Thanks to 24Homes..

Happy me!! 

Claire of 24Homes wrote a topic about my cakes. It's such a sweet and lovely topic and I am so happy to be mentioned on the blog of 24Homes... Claire and her girl friend Karin Joan share their amazing houses and their home made decorations. A great inspiration for me and many others.

Time flies...

Today is my last official summer vacation day.. Those seven weeks (yes, I shall not complain!), went by so fast. 

I've visited my aunt in Utrecht with my sister, went to see lots of movies with my dear girl friends, visited lovely Paris with my dear friend Mandy and finally got my new kitchen... Good times <3 

As you may have seen on Facebook, my kitchen cabinets are done, but the top of my kitchen hasn't. That will be next week, and I will post many, many pictures, if you like. 

At last, I would like to show you my before kitchen..

Have a great week end everybody!

Lovely Paris Part 2

Ever since my friend Tessa and I visited Ladurée in London, I'm a big fan. I adore their macarons and boxes.. So, I was looking forward visiting Ladurée in Paris with my friend Mandy.

Unfortunately, the large Ladurée was closed due to renovation. 
I was so sad not being able to visit the inside and have a sweet lunch.

But, luckily, it wasn't the only store in the city. So, we went to visit the one in Lafayette. 

There I bought macarons and tea. 
A very, very special tea that is called "Thé Marie Antoinette". As you may know, I love everything that has to do with Marie Antoinette, so I HAD to buy this tea. Besides, the tea tastes wonderful! It's black tea with rose petals, grapefruit, lemon, orange, pineapple, tangerine, lime and honey.

Back at home, I enjoyed my macarons and my tea while I was thinking about wonderful, new memories made in a lovely city...

Blanc et noir

A few weeks ago I was asked to make a birthday cake for a lovely lady. I had the complete free hand. 

I really wanted to work with SugarVeil again and thought, black and white would be pretty to combine with SV. 
With the weather is was hard to work with the SV, but with great help from Michele Hester, it turned out pretty good. Thanks for that Michele!

This is my second cake with SugarVeil and it has been a while, since my last cameo cake. But I still adore cameos.. 

I do love making a cake in black and white, once and a while. 
At the end of august I'm making a two layered wedding cake, also in black and white. 

The cake turned out to be a simple, elegant en chique cake. 

Have a great sunday evening!

Happy me! My home on a website..

A few weeks ago I received a message of Jussi from a Dutch website: Alles Brocante. It's a website that has everything to do with "brocante"; the French, shabby chic and country life style. They give you ideas for redecorating furniture and tell you about new websites and stores. 

Jussi asked me if I would like to participate on a new column on the page; "Binnenkijken" ("Looking in"). 
In this column bloggers show the homes or rooms in their homes to give readers of the website, ideas and inspiration for their own homes. I was overwhelmed and so happy at the same time to be asked.. 

I had to send in some pictures of one of the rooms and answer a few questions. I chose my living room, as it is my favorite. 

The article just came out and I would love to share it with you; here you can read the article.
