Colours of Spring

Living in The Netherlands fresh tulips are easy to come by.  I live in Utrecht, and every Saturday at the Janskerkhof square there is a flower market (Bloemenmarkt) to buy bouquets, potted plants of different sizes, garden plants and bulbs at cheap to reasonable prices.  This weekend for 5 euros I bought 3 fresh bouquets with a small bunch of narcissus flowers on the side.

I’m always amazed at how a simple addition like a fresh bouquet can liven up the atmosphere of a room so much.  These vibrant colours are much needed especially when winter still seems to be clinging on…

December frenzy!

What have I been up to so far in December?  A big highlight was visiting Oslo, Norway for a weekend, which was awesome btw.  A small highlight was being commissioned to make some Christmas decorations.  And finally, a SUPER highlight that is yet to happen is that I’m flying home for Christmas next week!

Rather than putting up Christmas lights, I like to light up candles around the apartment. With the left over glass balls that I had initially used for making hanging terrariums I decided to turn them into these Christmas decorations… I think they would look gorgeous if you hang them up by the window.
