Lots of things have been going on, but not much to write home about. We are grateful to have amazing and generous family who have been kind enough to purchase us some new outdoor furniture for our balcony.
Which we have put to good use while the weather is so wonderful by having breakfast for hours in comfort.
With the purchase of a new macro camera lens, and new lavender plants hanging off the balcony, (which provide us with a parade of bees); we now have a whole host of photographs that look similar (give or take some varying degrees of focus) to this one.
We have been out and about, keeping active along with the rest of Amsterdam, in Vondel Park.
I have been knitting up a storm, and have finished my first ever beaded project.
I’m looking forward to having somewhere a bit special to wear it!
I have also (in the death throes of August) decided that I should plan for the future and provide Himself with a thick and warm scarf to make up for the one of his which I may have absconded with last year.
In true “Us” fashion, while knitting on Saturday night, we were imbibing in a new cocktail. Elderflower and Champagne. Delicious!
Looking forward to a wonderful week ahead!

The breakfast setting looks so inviting with the lavender being the perfect backdrop… ..
I now also have deep red chrysanthemums hanging on the wall hooks! It’s such an inviting and serene space to spend time in! Thank you so much! (Again!) 😉
Is that old metal espresso cup still going? Lovely setting for breakfast, but don’t you have a waffle maker? Waffles would really complete the picture.
That’s his favourite espresso cup! It’s not going anywhere!
Neither of us are into waffles. The krentebollen (currant rolls) are really “Dutch”, so if we were to swap them for anything (and come Winter we might) it should be for something like porfetjes or pannenoken (pancakes).
oh, such a cute balcony!
I really wanted it to be a space we used a LOT in Summer, as it gets amazing afternoon sunlight. And it is! And we do! 😀
