Fine little day at the flea market in Germany. The weather was great and the market was really busy.We managed to find some good vinyl, some vintage pottery and a nice blouse.

Anybody else went vintage hunting this weekend?

We went to the record store tonight to pick up some music for the holidays. It was Nila's turn so we came home with  The Covers Record by Cat Power.

A couple of days ago Mister Kay brought home a vintage Japanese ice crusher. I always wanted one... perfect for the long summer.

see you,

PS: my friend Fabienen sent me this really good recipe for a summer salad: Watermelon cubed, feta, walnuts and olive oil. So simple but really yum and healthy.

Love the idea of sleeping in the garden but I guess I'm the only one in the family who likes the idea. The rest of the family is not very interested. Tell me how are you coping with the heat.
Before you all go on holidays I need some reading ideas?
see you,
PS: my best vinyl find of the weekend

wonderful summer

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer.
We are busy getting ready for our big summer break.
Only four more days of school and work.
At the Rijksmuseum is a really nice Alexander Calder exhibition in the moment. Most of it you can visit for free in the garden of the museum. I have been there a couple of times already.
So what are you up to this weekend?

I had not been to the Noordermarkt for a little while. This Monday morning I finally had the change to visit the market again. It was a pleasant surprise to see that the offer on vintage clothing is really good there in the moment. So if you are looking for some cool and not too expensive vintage clothes... that's the place to be on Monday morning.

see you,

PS: love George Ezra
