The Baby Pilea, also named Pilea Peperomioides is here in Holland one of the most wanted plants on Instagram. Since spring this year you see a lot of pictures on Instagram of little and big Baby Pilea’s. It;s really a nice plant and easy to take care of. The baby Pilea is originally from China. You have more than 600 different species (bron).
While you saw a lot of pictures on Instagram the Baby Pilea wasn’t easy to find in the stores. [Read more…]
Last year I made some Sinterklaas DIY decorations for the first time, in Black and white styling. You can find the Blog about the styling here. It’s always such a nice time, specially since I have a little son myself. Lars is now 3 years old and he is starting to like it a lot. For this year I also wanted to make some nice things. Ideas enough, only less time. For a couple of weeks I’m working on my master thesis again, and this takes so much time. So I only made two new things, black painted clogs and two pepper nut glass jars with Sinterklaas and Piet glued on it. [Read more…]

Like a lot of little kids, my son Lars is crazy about tents. So it seems nice to make him a teepee (tipi) tent. After some search on the internet I found a couple examples. Then the search for the perfect fabric started. I knew the teepee shouldn’t be too small, because I could imagine that papa and mama need to play with Larsman in the teepee too. And a big teepee means a lot of fabric, so I wanted not to expansive fabric. And preferabel one that fits on different places in the house. And be great for a boy. Pfew, that made it difficult to find the perfect fabric. [Read more…]
These days it’s a must to have a lot of green in your house. And with green I mean a lot of plants. I always liked plants in my house, but because of all the dust that comes with rebuilding and reconstruction in the house, most of my plants die in short time. So on a regular basis I have to buy new plants to fill the empty pots;-). But sometimes it’s nice to make a new spot for a nice plant with a great planter. Read further what I did [Read more…]
Do you have that too, you want to do so many things at the same time, and you don’t know where to start anymore? Finally you and up with doing nothing. I have that a lot.
We are rebuilding an old house since the end of 2002. The house is from before 1900 and it’s such a never ending story (but we love the house). These days it’s not only rebuilidng, but also the normal things like painting things again. And at the same time I have new ideas to change things we already rebuilded 10 years ago. Next to that I also get a lot of inspiration from Instagram, Pinterest, magazines etc. into my head. For those ideas I’m buying all kind of stuff. Most of the time I start with the idea, but It’s still not finished. It gave me the feeling that my head is floating over. Everywhere there is stuff that needs some work.
So to get things done, I bought a nice, simple notebook at the Hema and I started to write down different categories and projects on different pages. Under that I wrote all things that I could think of that need to be done and my new to do list was born.
Some people are laughing about my to do lists, but somehow this is the only way for me to finish things and to empty my head a little bit and of course to clean up the house;-). So after writing everything down, the To do list exists now of 200 items. This goes from a lot of painting and other things for the house, to clothes I need to fix, things for my Blog and other hobby things that I have in my mind. [Read more…]
