Make my day!

Just some happy shots to celebrate this happy day!
I woke up with the sweetest comments of you guys and it made me smile like an idiot ;) Every single comment makes me happy and I’m so thankful you all take the time to stop by and leave me a sweet message. Today my little sister will be visiting me in Utrecht and I planned a big High Tea for the two of us in a very cute bakery. The sun is doing its best and we have a clear blue sky over here so the shopping will be very pleasant too ;) And then I bumped into spring on Pinterest. Couldn’t keep myself from sharing…

Have a lovely day!

Love, Sari

I’m without words. How cute is this picture! Can you ever get a picture more spring like? Sigh… I think I want it.

Found this beautiful picture on my newest blog crush Paper Crowns. Don’t you just love the heart shaped leaves oh and that bright blue sky!

If I’m ever getting married, my hair will be exactly like this…

Β Definitely need an off white lace short this season to wear with anything I own!

Β The view that makes me smile every single day.

10 things I love wednesday

This week was, and still is, about my minor interior brand management and the fact that Spring arrived! Not official, but in my head it is! When i wake up it’s not totally dark anymore, the birds are singing when i’m enjoying my first coffee of the day and all the flowers are celebrating the nice weather with us. Just wanted to share some things that make me happy these days. It’s just about the little things right.

Love, Sari

Homemade: Buttery pecan rounds

What is better than an easy recipe on a lazy sunday afternoon? A recipe for homemade pecan nut cookies is! A few months ago my sister and I started baking cookies from the book of Ann Pearlman ‘The Christmas Cookie Club’. The books is about Marnie and her twelve closest girlfriends who gather every year on the first Monday of December.
With batches of beautifully wrapped homemade cookies. Everyone brings a dish, a bottle of wine and their stories. The book is filled with recipes and I will share one with you every month from now on!
