I’m not sure where she got the piracy tendencies from, but it looks great (especially since it’s from my own collection ;). hun you look gorgeous….but please bring back the trousers and the bag x

It’s one of those weekends which is much needed! I started it off yesterday late afternoon with a stroll in the woods followed by dinner at restaurant Groenendaal. All was so peaceful and quiet and it provided opportunity to pause and breath in the autumn air. This weekend is reserved for work at the fireplace, Continue Reading
