I'm hoping that our outdoor spaces will be cozy, comfy and welcoming. These inspirational spaces have nice lighting, inviting seating, rugs, and color. These spaces capture the essence of what I am hoping for!

To see more of my inspiration you can follow my Garden pin-board on pinterest.com

Wish me luck!

Amsterdam Influx
This time visiting Amsterdam, I really wanted to move there. The museums, the architecture, the bikes, the interior and fashion design, this little city has so much to offer.  It really feels like a place I could see Dominik and I living in the future. It is touristy, like heidelberg, but I can live with that. Maybe one day when I go on to get my masters in fine arts or if we get teaching jobs there.

One thing's for sure, is that every time I visit Amsterdam, I have an influx of ideas and inspiration. I feel the great desire to make my dreams happen and be creative.


I think what draws me most to Amsterdam is how small everything is. It's not about quantity, it's about quality. The art museums are manageable, the streets are narrow, littered with interesting specialty shops, and peoples' well decorated apartments. The city is easily explored on bike, or on foot. It's a lot but not too much. "Klein aber fein," as the Germans would say. 




 *My good friends, Amy, Julian and Anne came along for the adventure which was a real treat.


We visited the Rijksmuseum, saw some of the Dutch Masters. I felt very privileged.

* These two little guys, were REAL KIDS. Dominik an I saw them playing in a park and we asked to take their photo.  They still have imagination and were playing outside. I hope our children will still do this! Who are their parents I want to talk to them...



If I lived in Amsterdam would you visit me?

Cheers,

Simplistic Summer Style
We're on summer holidays from school!  I love being a teacher and having 6 weeks of summer is such a wonderful bonus. It is a big relief to have all grades in, classroom tidy and packed away, and students home with their families. I only have to care for myself and my husband for the next month. It's a wonderful feeling.

It's time to pack up my bags and head to the good ole USA this summer. I've really been feeling the warmth these past weeks. One thing I am loving in summer are simplistic and light dresses. I have a few but I am going to keep my eyes peeled while in the states for some basic summer dresses.

Here are a few that look just perfect for our US city travels this summer.
