I had a jar of pesto in the fridge and of course you can’t have pesto without a delicious bread. Therefore I decided to make a focaccia bread. Delicious and super easy to make! The dough is very similar to pizza dough. It just has a different processing. It would also be nice to serve with soup instead of a standard baguette!

A while ago I got a package from Lillestoff containing a super nice fabric with hot air balloons on it! As you may know I love hot air balloons, so this totally awesome fabric will undoubtedly get a nice destination. Especially now that Rens is here. The colors are very bright and they are a few my favorites. The quality of the fabric is very good. It is a jersey that is also organic. At Lillestoff you can find many more super cute fabrics. I highly recommended to go and see!
I’ve been thinking about what I will make of it. It’s a pretty large print, so not very suitable for clothing for Rens at the moment, because he is still so little. Maybe a wrap blanket? I’ll think of something, because this nice fabric deserves to become something great!
A few days ago I bumped over my wine glass.Thank God it was empty, so mopping wasn’t necessary. But unfortunately my glass was broken; the bottom came off. Basically I can still drink from it, but I’m not planning to hold it all night because I can’t set it down. A shame to throw away right? Okay, let’s be honest, we will not be drinking out of it anymore but it looked like a fun DIY project. A mini bell jar! A wine glass is the perfect shape for this. The mini ‘cake’ plateau I bought at the store, but you can also put the mini bell jar on the table without anything underneath. Tip: the thrift store is filled with saucers without a cup. Perfect in size to slide under your new mini bell jar!

It’s really about time that we finish the nursery. Yes, I know, it’s pretty sad that it’s still not finished. But then again we’ve had a whole house to finish during my pregnancy, and I really wasn’t able to do a lot in that period. But enough excuses, I will see to it that we finish it as soon as possible so that I can start showing my beautiful nursery on this blog!
I’m still looking for a carpet. I’m probably going to end up making one myself, because so far I cannot find anything that is nice enough. I think the chevron carpets and patterns in the nurseries above very nice. The colors in this room really speak to me. I really like soft but bright colors, and not just for the nursery! Oh, and the prints on the wall in picture 3 are super sweet! XO Wilma
Even though summer is over, I’m not ready to believe it. Mostly because of the beautiful weather we’ve been having lately. So for one last time this year an outfit to keep the summer close. Especially the white gives a great summer feel to this fun blue and white outfit. Okay, I chose for long sleeves and pants, but it’s all about the feeling. Please let me believe that summer is not over yet… XO Wilma
I love hats, but I must admit that I don’t wear them that much. So it would be a shame to spend a lot of money on one. The downside of cheap hats is that the band around it looks very cheap. I bought the hat in the picture for 2.50 Euro on sale. The blue stripe is pretty fun, but it’s a synthetic band and it shows. I decided to give it a makeover by using a vintage band that I found a while back at a flea market. Now my had is a unique piece and it looks so much better!

When we have visitors over, I always put some goodies on the table. And preferably something I made myself. Sometimes it’s easy to make something that doesn’t take too much time. This super easy apple pie is one example. The crust is made with puff pastry. Puff pastry with butter to be exact. That is so much better than the normal version! But if you can not get it you can always replace it with regular puff. A super tasty recipe that takes very little preparation time!

When I was little, there was really only one soup that I found really nice: mushroom soup. Today I’m happy to say I like a lot more. But I have to say I still do not really like canned soup. As with so many dishes (remember the pizza) fresh is so much better once you get used to it. I’m not going back to ready-made! So if you like to do things easily do not make this delicious soup, because if you do you won’t like it out of a can anymore!

This week will be filled with summer days and that demands a stylish summer outfit. I love turquoise, and combined with orange makes this outfit extra summer suitable. I think the dress is really nice, but my favorite items are surely the turquoise shoes. They would also be super cute with jeans!
What are your favorite colors for the summer? XO Wilma
You might have noticed, it’s a little quiet on my blog now. But I have a good reason! Because on July 18th our son ”Rens” was born . He is super healthy and really a wonderful guy. It feels a bit unreal that something so beautiful can come out of my belly but I am so proud! And not only I, of course, Tom is also completely happy.
I really love holding the little man in my arms and I enjoy our time together. The difficult pregnancy I had is still on my mind but that difficult time was absolutely worth it. What are nine months of my life when I can give someone else a whole new one? I think I may love him even more because of that. Our sweet boy did not come easily!
Regarding this blog: Do not be afraid that I will be neglecting it. I’m going to resume with full speed and I am planning to spend even more time on it. My perfect situation would be to work completely in home so that I can be there for Rens. And that moment is coming, because my motivation has grown even more with the birth of that little guy!
