hello monday

"The women who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The women who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before" 
A. Einstein-

This week I am enjoying the company of my cousin and her beautiful baby who are visiting (pancakes and "pepernoten" party for the girls tonight in honour of little Miss D), preparing some Christmas decorations at the house (I am staying positive, will make it to get a tree this week) and packing for my trip on Thursday (completely unlike me to haven't packed yet....how time flies). 
It's going to be a busy and fun week. 

Wishing you a great week filled with many smiles. 

pure delight

In Hamburg I indulged a bit in the candle department and bought a lovely home scent from Jo Malone. 
The wrapping of the candle, in the beautiful box finished with a ribbon, was already a delight. 
I can already imagine the house filled with candles and peonies, while sipping mint tea and enjoying a great book. Simply lovely. 

Have a beautiful day.
